Continuing his presentation about the recent course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture in MERU, Holland, Dr Stijn Vandenbosch explained the importance and interconnectedness of all the different organisms in the plant nutrition cycle.
Dr Vandenbosch, who is National Director of Invincible Belgium for the Global Country of World Peace, explained one of the principles participants heard often on the course: 'Starting from home or from wherever you are'. 'Even if you are not a farmer, or even if you do not have a garden, you can still receive practical inspiration from this course,' Dr Vandenbosch said. For example, one could start with herb boxes in the kitchen or on the terrace, he suggested.
Another beautiful point brought out in the course was the 'interconnectivity of all the different parts of creation', Dr Vandenbosch continued. He explained that in the soil and above the soil, large numbers of organisms are involved in the plant nutrition cycle. In organic agriculture it is being rediscovered, he said, that all these organisms in the soil are very important for giving nutrition to the plant; they are deeply interconnected with each other, and the system as a whole can only function harmoniously and efficiently if all the parts are well developed. 'In fact, if the soil biology is in good condition, then agriculture becomes very easy and very efficient,' he said.
The interconnectivity of all the parts of the nutrition cycle paralleled 'the structure of Unity Consciousness,'* he continued, 'which exists on the basis of perfect integration of all the different points of infinity'.
Dr Vandenbosch also commented that scientific experiments in organic agriculture, as well as those by thousands of farmers with billions of hectares of land using no-till or no-plough methods, are now showing that it is possible to have very successful agriculture without ploughing—creating less stressful, more effortless, and more productive agriculture.
Global Good News will soon feature further articles about the principles and techniques used in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture.
* Unity Consciousness: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi explains that beyond the familiar states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping are four higher states of consciousness—Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness—each bringing a new dimension of physiological functioning, experience, knowledge, and fulfilment.
* Dr Vandenbosch was one of the speakers on the 5 May Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
