AGRICULTURE

The key feature of Vedic agriculture is ‘agree-culture’—agreeing with the culturing intelligence. Agree-culture must agree fully with the culturing intelligence of nature that manages Earth’s ecosystems and the entire ever-expanding universe.

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is natural agriculture free from all poisonous fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, with the inner intelligence of the plants enlivened by means of Vedic sounds, the sounds of Natural Law, so that their growth and health-giving, nourishing properties are maximized to uplift the consciousness and improve the health of all who eat them.

Being in tune with nature means that the farmer’s awareness is the focal point of Vedic agriculture. The farmer’s awareness should be established on the level of Total Natural Law, which is the level of nature’s culturing intelligence, so that all his actions are spontaneously in tune with all the laws of nature. This is the basis of successful agriculture, which creates no harmful pollution or side effects, and produces the most fully enlivened crops to feed the nation. Pure, fully developed food creates health for the nation, and improves soil fertility for generation after generation to come.

Farmers enjoying higher consciousness live spontaneously in harmony with the rhythms and cycles of nature on the local and Cosmic levels. The farmer’s actions display all the culturing qualities of nature’s intelligence. For example, the farmer works according the principle of least action, so he accomplishes maximum with least exertion. As the parents of the nation, enlightened farmers, while having time for cultural and spiritual life, enhance the nourishing quality of soil, crop and food and thereby each day support the creating and maintenance of world peace.

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture: Providing Food of a New Level of Purity and Vitality

Under Maharishi’s inspiration, the complete, traditional and scientifically verified knowledge of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture contained in the Veda and the Vedic Literature of India is now once again available to the farmers and the governments of the world. The objective of this knowledge is to bring today’s agricultural practices in tune with the fundamental Laws of Nature which govern and nourish our lives—to grow supremely pure and nourishing food that will give health and peace to the whole world family.

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture incorporates in its programs the most rigorous existing standards for pure organic food. But Maharishi Vedic Organic goes well beyond current organic standards. It uses the ancient Vedic agricultural technologies recently revived by Maharishi to produce food of extraordinary purity and vitality.

Farmers following the principles of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture will rise to higher consciousness and live life in harmony with the Laws of Nature. They will use the sounds of the Veda—the sounds of Natural Law itself—to enliven the inner intelligence of the plants. The result will be support of Natural Law—good fortune—to the farmer, plants bursting with the vitality of Nature’s Intelligence, and a healthy environment for the soil, the seed, the weather and the farmer to produce an abundance of healthy and life supporting food.

What Is Missing in Modern Agriculture?—the Complete Knowledge of Natural Law

The missing element in agriculture today is the complete knowledge of Natural Law—and particularly the understanding of the relationship between the consciousness of the farmer and the Laws of Nature at the basis of the soil, the seed, the weather, and the local and cosmic environment.

The life of a farmer is intimately connected with the rhythms and cycles of Nature. Every farmer experiences that good fortune—e.g. good weather, the absence of pests and diseases—is the essential requirement for a successful crop, season after season. In other words every farmer needs the benevolence of Nature—the support of Natural Law—in order to be successful.

But in the past, support of Natural Law in farming was unreliable, because the consciousness of the farmer remained undeveloped due to the weakness of education, and the knowledge of Natural Law was incomplete. The result has been that farmers unfortunately violate the Laws of Nature.

When the farmer violates the Laws of Nature there is a consequence—loss of support of Nature for their farming—meaning bad weather, pests, diseases, etc.

The knowledge gained through education of a few specific Laws of Nature—e.g. how to prepare the soil and when to sow the seed—has not been sufficient to ensure that Nature fully supported the life of the farmer so that an abundance of pure, healthy crops could be grown year after year. Farming has been a very hard and uncertain profession, always one stroke of bad luck away from economic disaster.

How to Gain the Support of Nature for the Farmer and the Farming

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture provides to the farmer the knowledge of how to develop Vedic consciousness—higher consciousness, where every thought and action engages the total Natural Law that administers the universe with perfect order. Such an enlightened farmer lives spontaneously in accord with Natural Law, and all his thoughts, actions and behavior receive the full support of Nature’s intelligence.

This is how, through Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, any farmer can now systematically develop an ideal relationship to the Natural Law at the basis of the soil, the crop, the weather and the whole environment, so that the process of growing abundant, nourishing food is always blessed with good fortune—the Support of Nature.

Then every harvest season will witness the smile of the angels in Heaven, and the new taste of healthy food. Timely winds, timely rains, and sunshine will be at the disposal of the farmer to support every step of his profession, season after season.

The Vedic farmer entering his fields, lively in the totality of Natural Law, will awaken the Laws of Nature functioning within the plants themselves. It is well known and has been extensively documented that plants react favorably when those who care for them are enjoying higher consciousness in their life. So every crop will naturally grow rapidly in health and strength in the enlightened presence of a Vedic farmer radiating love and the total Intelligence of Nature itself.

The Vedic Consciousness of the farmer will make him smile in his fields, and a happy farmer entering his fields will be welcomed by the smiles of each and every one of his plants.

The fortune of the Vedic Farmer will blossom in affluence. The farmer’s life will flower in its parental role for the whole nation. The gift of the Vedic Farmer and Vedic Farming will be a new dawn for health and happiness, season after season.

Utilizing Vedic Sounds to Awaken the Intelligence of the Crop

It will also be the joy of the farmer to see the health and vitality of his crops growing through the nourishing sounds of Veda and the Vedic Literature, and their nourishing effect will bring the unseen quality of Natural Law to blossom in the crop.

In Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture the farmer uses the sounds of Veda and the Vedic Literature to directly enliven the holistic and specific Laws of Nature responsible for the growth of the crops. These Vedic sounds have been preserved throughout the ages by the traditional Vedic families in India, and today are recited by the Pandits just as they were eons ago.

Maharishi has revealed that these sounds of Veda and the Vedic Literature are the reverberations of Natural Law itself. The Vedic sounds we hear the Vedic Pandits chant are exactly the sounds made by the Unified Field when it interacts with itself, and begins to vibrate in the basic impulses of Natural Law that administer the universe.

In Veda and the Vedic Literature, it is the sound value of the Vedic recitation that is given importance rather than the meaning. This is because the sounds of Veda and Vedic Literature are the reverberations of Natural Law and have the ability to enliven those specific laws in the environment. Thus we can use the Vedic sounds directly in promoting those Laws of Nature which are responsible for agricultural growth and development. Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is that agriculture which is nourished by the Vedic vibrations—the sounds of the Veda and the Vedic Literature.

“Mind depends on the Quality of Food That We Eat”

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture produces food that is supportive to health and the development of higher consciousness in the whole society (in contrast to the effects of modern agriculture that are quite the opposite of this).

There is a traditional saying that “mind depends on the quality of food that we eat.” For full development of mind, we need the full range of Natural Law to be enlivened in the plants.

This is the natural result of Maharishi Vedic Organic farming, and food grown this way will result in the thinking and behavior of the whole population being increasingly in an evolutionary, health-enhancing, life-supporting direction.

The higher consciousness of the farmer and the use of Vedic sounds to enrich the crops will produce a higher, healthier quality in the food supply, which will in turn create a healthy quality in the consciousness and physiology of the whole population. The food that people eat will support a natural rise to their Cosmic status—with the total potential of Natural Law awakened within, their beautiful aspirations will be fulfilled and their health will be on the highest possible level.

This high quality of life of the citizenry will spontaneously support a prevention-oriented and problem-free government administration on a par with the administration of the Universe by Natural Law.

Individual life will be in tune with cosmic life. There will be balance and harmony in nature, resulting in seasons and rain coming on time, and life lived in abundance.

Nature is almighty and merciful. When Natural Law is enlivened in the farmer’s awareness, there will be a spontaneous balancing of agricultural resources throughout the world in favor of the prosperity of all mankind.

Removal of Poverty through Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture

A fundamental benefit of the introduction of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture will be the reduction of poverty in the developing countries of the world.

Poor farmers with the knowledge of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture will have the opportunity to create highest quality Vedic organic food on unpolluted, virgin lands for export to the wealthy, consumer nations.

In this way, Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture will provide healthy, nourishing food for the richer nations while improving nutrition and dramatically advancing the economies of the poorer ones (please see Maharishi’s Program for Poverty Removal at the web site—www.poverty-removal.org).

Addressing the Dangers of Modern Agriculture—Click here to learn more

The Dangers of Modern Agriculture

Agriculture is one of society’s most basic needs and activities, an activity that has been at the heart of every culture throughout the ages.

Until recently, the ever-increasing trend in agriculture has been towards large-scale, chemical-based farming. Harmful chemical fertilizers, non-degradable pesticides, and herbicides have destroyed the life of the soil, causing widespread erosion and sterility. Food has become polluted with the byproducts of these applications, sacrificing quality to unhealthy growing and processing practices. There is a continual emphasis on killing predators, insects, and bacteria in the food. The whole food is thus polluted with poisons and killing agents.

Excessive nitrates in chemically grown food can metabolize into cancer-causing nitrites in the digestive tract. Pesticides have also been found to cause hormonal imbalances, which may lead to tumors. Pesticides used in chemical agriculture have been linked to higher brain cancer, leukemia, learning disabilities and other disorders. The risk of this kind of food is especially great for children.

Food grown through chemical agricultural practices has also been shown to be deficient in certain minerals and trace elements that are essential for balanced development of the physiology, and the prevention of serious disease.

In addition to these nutritional deficits due to the method of growing, there is yet another problem in modern agriculture that is a danger to society. The production and sale of agricultural products have become focused on packaging, marketing, convenience and shelf life, with the result that fruits and vegetables are harvested long before they are ripe and have developed their full nutritive value. Unripe foods are then chemically or unnaturally ripened at the convenience of the market.

Importance of Food Ripening Before Being Harvested

In Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, in order to adhere to the rhythmic cycles of Natural Law, the timing of planting and harvesting of food is given importance. Food must be allowed to fully ripen on the plants or trees for the complete nutritive value to be present, and harvest must be at a time when plant vitality is maximum.

Nutrition comes out most profoundly in the last days of the ripening process. Since proper nutrition is the purpose of eating in the first place, food without its full nutritive value defeats the very purpose of our efforts to maintain a vital, healthy diet.

Even though organically grown, juices from unripe fruits, vegetables that are not vine ripened, or foods that are old or frozen are simply lacking in vitality and incomplete in their nutrient value. Maharishi Vedic Organic food is like nectar, with all the necessary nutrients. The pricing of this quality of food may be higher to meet these freshness requirements, but the quality and nutritive value will also be proportionally higher, making the investment highly worthwhile.

Genetic Engineering Endangering the World Food Supply

The most dangerous of all the technologies that have come to the forefront in recent years is the genetic manipulation of food and seed sources. Thousands of years of perfect evolution in accord with all the Laws of Nature is being sacrificed to misguided business interests. These completely untested and unknown products are being promoted in an irreversible manner, threatening the health of present and future generations and the safety of our food supply itself.

The forcing of chemical and bioengineering farming methodologies onto developing nations has in many cases completely undermined their ancient cultural practices, and actually led to food supply problems. Whole nations are becoming food dependent on the wealthy, powerful nations, which makes them vulnerable for their essential needs.

The Many Imbalances in World Agriculture

It is also obvious that the organization of the field of agriculture is imbalanced, since different poor nations still face food shortages, even though the world has an abundance of unused fertile land.

Also, farmers everywhere are working hard, yet they remain underpaid, and receive only a small fraction of the money spent on food by the consumer. In fact they receive a much smaller fraction of the food dollar than they received 100 years ago. In the U.S., for example, at the beginning of the 20th century farmers received 41 cents for every dollar of food sold in the market—now it is only 9 cents.

And however hard the farmers work, they remain at the mercy of the vicissitudes of Nature. Even in organic agriculture, no matter how sophisticated the farming techniques may be, if Nature is not supportive, if the weather is not conducive, if there is sun when rain is needed and rain when sun is needed, then the farmers and the nation will suffer. Only Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture addresses this fundamental issue of support of Nature.

Applying Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture—Click here to learn more

The Application of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture

The knowledge of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture can be applied to extend and enhance the traditional and modern methods of organic farming in a variety of ways:

1. Practicing the Maharishi Vedic Technologies of Consciousness for the farmer to rise to higher consciousness (Vedic Consciousness), spontaneously enlivening Natural Law in his own awareness and in his environment—rising to Vedic Consciousness is the very heart of Vedic farming, because it enhances the support of Nature that can only be gained by living in tune with Natural Law.

2. Using the sounds of Veda and the Vedic Literature—the sounds of Natural Law itself—to directly enliven the holistic and specific Laws of Nature responsible for the growth of the crops;

3. Applying Maharishi Jyotish—Vedic astrology—to help the farmer choose the auspicious times for planting and harvesting to gain the full support of the cyclic rhythms of Natural Law;

4. Having Maharishi Yagyas—Vedic engineering performances utilizing the Vedic sounds—performed to enliven the full creative intelligence of Natural Law in the plants and animals, and avert dangers that have not yet come.

5. Offering all the revitalizing, prevention-oriented, health-giving programs of the Maharishi Vedic Health Care System to the farmer and his family, and everyone working on the farm;

6. Building according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda—Vedic architecture in harmony with Natural Law—so that farm buildings promote the health, happiness and good fortune of everyone living and working there;

There are many such time-tested, cost-effective techniques from each of the 40 branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature that will help farmers provide healthy natural food, while supporting the farmer and preserving the environment.

Discovery of Veda and the Vedic Literature in Human Physiology

Professor Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., who was awarded his weight in gold for his scientific discoveries and who has now been crowned as Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, has recently discovered that the human physiology is the expression of the total intelligence of Natural Law—Veda and the Vedic Literature. He has discovered a precise correspondence between the 40 aspects of Veda and the Vedic Literature and the fundamental structures and functions of human physiology, and has thus been able to demonstrate that the human physiology is the perfect expression—literally the further manifestation—of the intelligence inherent in the 40 branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature.

This of course means that every farmer has the total intelligence of Natural Law in his own Transcendental Consciousness and in his physiology, too. The implication of this discovery gives every farmer the birthright to live fully in harmony with Natural Law, enjoying perfection in life.

Professor Nader’s discovery reveals that the more we enliven Veda—Natural Law—through Maharishi Vedic Technologies of Consciousness, the more we enliven its most perfect and complete expression, the human physiology. When the farmer awakens these deepest values of Natural Law in his own physiology, he ensures the ideal functioning of his own physiology, enlivens the plant’s own intelligence, and promotes an ideal quality of life for those who consume the food.

As long as agriculture is only involved with relatively superficial levels of Natural Law, it will produce food that primarily affects the more surface levels of physiological functioning. Furthermore, the danger of a superficial knowledge of Natural Law is now evident everywhere. Modern chemical agriculture is unfortunately built upon the violation of Natural Law, using poisonous pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers that damage the crop, the soil, the water and the environment—and ultimately, the farmer and the consumer both.

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agricultural principles offer to today’s farmer agriculture in harmony with Natural Law—free of poisons—which simultaneously enlivens the total intelligence of Natural Law in human physiology to maintain harmony between individual life and cosmic life, and thus bring effortless fulfillment to all the farmer’s aspirations.

Training Programs in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture

Global Country of World Peace is prepared to provide international standard organic training and certification in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture technologies to all the farmers, farmers associations and cooperatives in every country.

Courses to provide personal and professional development will be provided to all the farmers participating in this program. Farmers will be trained to develop higher consciousness in harmony with Natural Law through the Maharishi Vedic Technologies of Consciousness, enriching their personal relationships, health, and creativity, while at the same time, they will be trained in the latest international certified organic practices. The natural result will be an upliftment of the economic status of the farmer with a dramatic improvement in housing, education, and social services. Farmers will become the true “fathers of their nations” which their role as the food providers naturally qualifies them to be.

Global Country of World Peace is also connected to a large international sales and distribution network known as the Maharishi Global Chamber of Commerce, which can aid every country in the sale of the organic products that it produces.

The Educational Institution behind these farmer-training programs is the Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture Institute, accredited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with expertise in organic and Vedic Organic certification, research and education. For more information on the Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture Programs please refer to the Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture Institute web site at: http://www.mvoai.org/for full details on the programs.

When a nation establishes Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture to produce pure, nourishing food, the government will be delighted to see that the health and quality of mind of the whole country is remarkably improved, and that new wealth is being created to eliminate the poverty of the nation. The government will find that not only has the quality of nourishment improved, but the whole character of national life is rising in peace, and harmony with Natural Law, and other problems also are not appearing in national life. This will mean the government has achieved a new level of efficiency in administration, and fulfilled the ideal for every government—a prevention-oriented and problem-free administration.

Prosperity though Pure, Nourishing Food is Essential to Create Lasting World Peace

Without eliminating poverty, peace will never be permanent. The basis of peace is satisfaction and fulfillment in the whole population.

The purest and most permanent source of wealth to eliminate poverty in every country is agriculture. Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture combines the best and most modern technologies of organic farming with the ancient and time-tested system of Vedic agriculture, with its focus on developing agriculture in tune with Natural Law to provide maximum vitality, nutrition and freshness in the food.

Profits from Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture projects in each nation and around the world will also be a permanent, pure source of funds to support the national and international peace-creating groups generation after generation.

Organic production is so vital in every country, both for the health of its citizens and the preservation of the environment. However, in addition to these benefits, organic agriculture is the best possible way to improve the economic status of small farmers, where the techniques of organic agriculture are not only most suitable, but the prices that farmers can receive for their crops command a significant premium in the developed nations. The organic industry is now the fastest growing segment of the agriculture industry, providing you with the opportunity for increased foreign exchange through the export of organic foods.

There is already a rapidly growing market for organic foods in America, the European Union, and Japan, where the demand for pure foods now greatly exceeds the supply. Any country with the knowledge and organizing power to produce and export food in accord with international standards will be able to take part in this lucrative market, where prices are significantly higher than for conventionally grown, chemical agriculture food.
