The fundamental elements of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture and gardening—including doing less to accomplish more—were highlighted in a recent course for students and faculty at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

In a radio interview on station KHOE's programme A Chat with the Dean, international expert Dr Peter Swan, who developed the course under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and has taught it in many locations around the world including MUM, discusses Vedic agriculture with Maharishi University of Management Dean of Faculty, Dr Cathy Gorini.

In 16 lessons, Maharishi University of Management students and faculty learned how to achieve greater results with less effort.

'In every area of agriculture and gardening easier, simpler, non-destructive, more productive methods have been developed in all parts of the world, that allow farmers and gardeners to do less and accomplish much more,' Dr Swan says.

The course delves deeply into nature's functioning—'how nature works', how plants draw nourishment from the soil, Dr Swan explains. Micro-organisms in the soil provide food to the plants as a by-product of their own activities. Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture practices actually improve the quality of the soil, rather than depleting it, he says.

Another key element of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is enlivenment of the field of pure Transcendental Consciousness—enlivenment of the nourishing, life-supporting qualities of Natural Law through Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying.

Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture realizes the ideal of agriculture described by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: 'Agri-culture', in which the consciousness of the farmer is agreeing with—in harmony with—the culturing intelligence of total Natural Law at the basis of the entire universe, including all aspects of agriculture: soil, seeds, plants, environment, weather and cycles of nature—creating only nourishing, life-supporting effects for everyone.
