One of the hallmarks of the Ancient Indian and indigenous worldview is that “Nature is the best teacher”.

No wonder our ancestor used to look up to nature to understand about life itself. We are the descendants of ancestral cultures living by the values of a worldview that understands that humans are one member of the living community of Earth, and that we have responsibilities to ensure the thriving of the other non-human species with whom we share the Earth.

A fundamental environmental philosophy of Tattva festival is transformation of our relationship to Earth, to Nature and surrounding environment. The key to Sustainability is not only restoring the land from damage we have inflicted, but also restoring our relationship with it. To be in harmony with nature.

 Although we come from many different places, ultimately we stand upon a common ground here at Tattva. No matter what language we speak, our lives are enriched and made sweeter by other beings that surround us, with whom we share the Earth.

Tattva Festival is an opportunity where artists, leaders, poets, storytellers, and musicians gather together to remind us of who we are, what we love, what we value, what makes us deeply happy as humans—for the most powerful transformations are motivated by love.
