Religion is central to the consciousness of the majority in the world. Most of the actions that we indulge in are a direct offshoot of our interaction with the systems of religion in place. Even if we do not subscribe to any religion per se we are affected by the tenants prescribed and adhered through across the centuries. Environment too like religion is all pervasive and affects us day in and out. Any change in either of them has considerable ramifications on our lives. However, mutations in both are inevitable and the same has shaped the world as we know it today. Hence a discourse on religion, environment and interplay of both on each other and on the lives of human being is inevitable and the same is attempted in this work. Religion exists in various avatars and the same again is interpreted variously. These various interpretations and reinterpretations often contradictory and antagonistic to each other mirrors the discourse on the way environment is approached by the major religions of the world and their adherents.
