Speaking 11 October 2008 on Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication for the Global Country of World Peace, reported that he has started a 16-hour course on Maharishi Vedic Agriculture at the Maharishi Invincibility Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The course, which now has 27 participants, met for the first time on Victory Day, the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashami in the Vedic Calendar, which fell on 9 October. 'In beginning this course, we're taking one step forward in fulfilling the plan of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, to bring pure Vedic crops and food to people throughout the world,' said Dr Swan.

Continuing his report, Dr Swan noted that not all of the course participants have learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique. To these members, Dr Swan happily explained the nature of pure consciousness, or Transcendental Consciousness, which is experienced during the practice of Transcendental Meditation. He went on to explain to the course participants that within this pure consciousness reside all the Laws of Nature, including those expressed within the soil fertility cycle and other agricultural principles.

'The course will follow the structure laid out by Maharishi,' said Dr Swan, 'with diverse, practical knowledge of agriculture leading into increasingly unified theoretical points.' So far, Dr Swan has only given the first one-hour lecture, which consisted of a complete overview of the course.

As an example of some specific subject matter of the course, Dr Swan mentioned that the first lesson will cover the shallow-till method of farming, in which soil isn't plowed. 'So far, this course has been a beautiful experience,' he said in closing.
