Continuing his presentation on Maharishi Global Family Chat about the new course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture recently held in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication for the Global Country of World Peace, and host of the daily live broadcast, spoke about the principle of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture contained in Lesson 11.
Dr Swan explained that the second half of the course begins with Lesson 11 and the teaching of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture as Total Knowledge, Brahm Vidya.
The theme of Lesson 11 is 'From human intelligence to Nature's Intelligence'. Dr Swan showed a chart of the circular 'Food Cycle'—the creation and consumption of food, which begins with humus in the soil, going through the steps of the creation of bacteria and fungi, grazers, predators, the plants, herbivores, carnivores, coming back to the soil again through decomposition.
Dr Swan explained that all food is made originally by plants, which have the ability to photosynthesize carbohydrates from the sun. 'So the fullness of humus upholding and catalyzing the health of all plants, and thereby of all animals and fungi, all living beings, and the fullness of synthesis nourishing every other aspect—these two fullnesses are giving to each other all the time,' said Dr Swan.
Dr Swan pointed out that these two fullnesses are reminiscent of the Rk Ved: fullness of fullness and fullness of emptiness. 'Veda, Maharishi has taught us, is based on the root dan, to give,' said Dr Swan. 'So two fullnesses give to each other constantly, neither fullness ever becoming less; both fullnesses, in fact, becoming more and more through constant giving.'
Dr Swan said that this is the expression in the food cycle of the Vedic expression Purnam adah purnam idam purnat purnam udachyate purnasya purnam adaya purnam evavashishyate, which means fullness giving to fullness: if we take fullness from fullness, what remains is only fullness. 'This is one of the principles of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture as Brahm Vidya—two fullnesses always giving to each other,' he said.
