Europe's first Maharishi Peace Palace, located in Erfurt near the centre of Germany, is hosting a course in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture and organic gardening in the light of Maharishi Vedic Science. The course, led by Dr Peter Swan, will be open both to the general public and to a more specialized audience of Transcendental Meditation practitioners.
Dr Eckart Stein, director of the Peace Palace and one of the project leaders for its recently completed construction, talked about the upcoming course.
He said, 'Dr Peter Swan will be giving a public lecture. It's a lecture on Vedic organic farming and gardening . . . . Everyone who has a garden, everyone who is just growing tomatoes or flowers on his windowsill, who has a farming house, or all those who just want to learn a little bit about the intelligence of nature, they all should come to the public lecture.'
Dr Swan shared his experience giving a similar lecture to a public audience in Switzerland. It was so well received that he felt compelled to hold another for the people who couldn't make it to the first lecture.
'They felt,' explained Dr Swan, 'that it was so valuable to get the knowledge of the latest developments in agriculture and gardening, all the research, to understand where farming, gardening, and food production are going at this time.'
What is the main message of the lecture Dr Swan plans to give in Erfurt? It is twofold, he explained. 'One is [about] the profound Vedic technologies . . . which all work on a subtle level, reconnecting us with Natural Law.'
The other message is focused on modern research in organic farming. This will make up the bulk of the lecture and course.
What modern research is finding, Dr Swan explained, is that farming and gardening need not be as time consuming, labor intensive, costly, and chemical dependent as they have been in the past.
They can also be good for the soil. 'Instead of degenerating the soil year by year—the soil gets worse and worse with the chemicals and the plowing—we can improve the soil very quickly in many different ways by composting and so on. I think this would be the main message for everybody to take home.'
