Abstract

Cosmic consciousness is an idea about the interrelationship between the macrocosm (universe) and microcosm (human) which is immaterial and spiritual. Indonesian people with Hindu beliefs in the Vedas use cosmic consciousness to predict seasonal changes and natural phenomena. Cosmic consciousness has an implicit element of environmental mastery. As one of the dimensions of psychological well-being, it is worth investigating its relationship with cosmic consciousness in an effort to respond to climate change. This research uses a literature review on Hindu cosmology, psychological well-being, and climate change studies in Indonesia. The findings show that human behavior towards nature and prejudice towards God affect climate change in the context of cosmic consciousness. Thus, this research can generate new values between local wisdom and global issues related to climate change.
