Truly sustainable agriculture will now be a major offering of the Sustainable Living Department at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) thanks to the addition of new faculty member A. Thimmaiah, a former agriculture advisor in Bhutan and a top expert in organic and biodynamic agriculture.

Dr. Thimmaiah, who authored the national organic standards for Bhutan, will teach organic agriculture, biodynamic agriculture, and Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, both at the undergraduate level and in a proposed new MA program that could start as early as this fall.

''Organic farming is not a mere substitution of toxic synthetic inputs with natural materials,'' said Dr. Thimmaiah. ''Rather, it is a process of understanding and interacting with nature. Consciousness is key to farming that connects the farmer to the biorhythms, the five elements of nature, and the entire cosmos. A conscious farmer will have the wisdom to discriminate between the good agricultural methods and the practices that produce genetically modified food. Since MUM is the home of Consciousness-Based Education, I wish to blend consciousness into the food and agricultural sector.''
