The Bishnois remain the first eco-friendly religious community in Historical records. Originating from the Thar Desert in Rajasthan, their guru Jimbaji set out 29 rules related to protecting all forms of living creatures on Earth, among which "protect trees and animals!". Over the past 600 years, these people have been living in respect with nature, to the point of sacrificing their own lives.
