Another meaning of Kalp is Era or Epoch. According to Sage Aangiras, Kalp is Lord Brahma’s one day covering 4,320,000 years. Vedic seers considered earth as ‘sacred place’ for satisfying sacred endeavors & ambitions and practice of self-control.Kalp believes in practicable, feasible and possible, which are essential for ecological restoration and cultural conservation. The conservational values and moral ethics derived from the Vedic philosophy are the underlying principles of the Foundation. From the times of yore, primitive cultures have preserved the explanation for each natural phenomenon in a spiritual way, through oral traditions and art of storytelling. The oral traditions though started as a means of entertainment, proved excellent tools for preserving the history and culture. Kalp makes use of these tools for upholding biological and cultural diversity. This is thought to be achieved by making use of interdisciplinary approach, ensuring community participation, and engaging academia, younger generation and policy makers.
