He focused on Dharma, Karma and Moksha. He discussed how nature in itself works for itself in a periodic way. According to him nature imbibed all the features of Purushartha. The only way in which nature and humans are different was that nature was not as active as humans. He futher shared that Aahar, Nidra, Maithun and Bhay are present both in humans and animals. But wish for moksha and presence of Decision Making Skills is present in humans not in prakriti. Moksha can only be availed by Purushartha, nature cannot avail Moksha.
