The ancient Indians recognized the world as experienced by sense organs to be composed of two fundamental principles: name and form.
Form refers to the seen objects and name refers to how humans describe what they see.
Having so analyzed the world, the Vedas then cultivate a sense of belonging and oneness with nature and the world.
A 3000 year old hymn proclaims thus
Prarpayatu sreshta tamaya karmaNe
This can be roughly translated to:
For food thee, for strength thee!
Ye are winds, ye are approachers.
Let the god Savitr impel you to the most excellent offering.
– Krishna Yajurveda, Taittiriya Samhita, 1.1
