A course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture has found worldwide popularity, with its latest offerings in Croatia, Switzerland, and Holland. Its creator and instructor, Dr Peter Swan, explained that one goal of the course is to educate people about the tremendous progress in the field of agriculture and the environment.
One reason for the popularity, Dr Swan said—the course has been offered so far in Africa, Europe, and North America—is that the course covers a topic many people are interested in these days.
He added that we often hear news about huge strides taken in applying Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's technologies of consciousness in the fields of education, architecture, business, and many others, so he felt inspired to share news of how Maharishi's technologies can apply to gardening, agriculture, and the environment.
'This area of agriculture and environment is such a contentious issue these days, with so much talk about climate change and so much bad news. We would like to offer a different view, a very positive view.'
Dr Swan added that this positive view is in line with the news of rising positive trends that he and other Transcendental Meditation teachers attribute to increasing invincibility and peace in the world.
The course, entitled 'Maharishi Vedic Science in Agriculture and Environment: Key to Personal Enlightenment, Global Affluence, and Sustainability,' is based on Maharishi's key teaching in the field of agriculture. Maharishi explained agriculture as 'agree-culture'—'agreeing with the culturing intelligence' of nature.
What this means, Dr Swan said, is that at the basis of all existence is an infinite field of pure intelligence, identified by both modern science and Maharishi Vedic Science as the unified field of all the laws of nature. This universal field is accessible in human awareness and can be directly experienced through Maharishi's technologies of consciousness. Contact with this field enlivens it in one's thinking and behaviour, bringing the ability to act in accord with natural law, 'in tune with nature'.
All of Maharishi's programmes and technologies are designed to create an ideal quality of life for the individual and society by promoting life in harmony with natural law, and Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is no different.
'Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture has been one of the enormous gifts of Maharishi to the world,' Dr Swan concluded.
