At the recent international Agriculture Conference in Kathmandu, Nepal, Dr John Konhaus, of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture Institute, outlined the authentic approach to Vedic Agriculture, as brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

The conference on 24 September was one of two presented in Kathmandu by Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation, showcasing practical, scientifically proven solutions to contemporary problems that grip Nepal and the world. Please see Part I and Part II of this press release from Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation about the Agriculture and Education conferences. The press release continues:

'The real and most fundamental concern in Vedic Agriculture is how lively, balanced, and supportive is the creative intelligence of Natural Law in the farmer, in the plants, and in the environment,' Dr Konhaus said.

'In Vedic Agriculture we are concerned with that agency which transforms the soil and air and water into fruits and vegetables. We are concerned with creativity, and, most essentially, we are concerned with the pure creative intelligence which is responsible for the balanced and complete expression of that creativity. We want to be sure this agency remains strong and comprehensive, and is not weakened in any way. We want to be sure that all the forces responsible for successful agriculture are timely and supportive', he continued.

Dr Konhaus then described how the appropriate Vedic recitations at the proper time can maximize the plant's growth, nutrition, and purity for the benefit of the consumer, the environment, and the farmer.

Maheshwari Ghimire, Senior Organics Inspector for NASAA, located the descriptions of organic agriculture in the Vedic literature and described the current certification process in Nepal.

Shiva Sharma, Chairperson of the National Labor Academy, exhorted the group to create test organic sites throughout Nepal with a central research facility to provide local and international data of best organic practices to the farmers, which can then be used to persuade government to implement an organic policy within three years.

Bharat Upadhya, Executive Director of CAEPRED (Center for Environmental and Agricultural Policy, Research, Extension and Development) and co-sponsor of the conference, detailed his agency's field efforts to enhance and identify indigenous practices, which demonstrate organic effectiveness.

The Agriculture Conference concluded with a resolution to create an action plan that will make Nepal completely organic as soon as possible.

Global Good News will feature the press release about the Education Conference in Kathmandu, Nepal, in the coming days.
