Global Press Conference on
A Unified Field-Based Approach to Organic Agriculture

7 August 2007


During a recent Global Press Conference on Unified Field Based Agriculture, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, spoke about the great responsibility farmers have to provide healthy food for the nation in order to elevate the individual and society as a whole.

Dr Morris said that the critical point to be learned by the students at Maharishi Vedic Agriculture University is a common saying from the Vedic Tradition in India: ‘The mind depends on the quality of food that one eats.’

The first thing that the farmers at the Maharishi Vedic Agricultural University will learn is that they have a very great responsibility; they have a parental role for the whole nation, not only to provide food so that people can stay alive, but to provide food that is elevating, health-giving, and uplifting for the individual, and therefore to the society as a whole, because society is only made of individuals.

‘The next point that they will learn is how to develop higher states of consciousness,’ Dr Morris said. ‘They will learn that there are seven states of human consciousness. Waking, sleeping, and dreaming are the three regular states that people experience, but there are four higher states of consciousness: Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness.

‘It is an essential requirement of every farmer to experience Transcendental Consciousness through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, which they will do during their academic routine at the Maharishi Vedic Agriculture University. They will continue practising this and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, as the essential basis of their agricultural programme.

‘They have to do this in order to be a good and successful farmer. Why? Because by practising these techniques of consciousness, they experience the Unified Field of Natural Law. When they experience the silent, self-referral, transcendental state of their own consciousness, the individual mind becomes unified with the Unified Field itself, like a wave on the ocean settling down to be the ocean. The consciousness of the farmer becomes the entire consciousness of the universe. The entire intelligence of the universe is captured in the awareness of the farmer.

‘As they continue this practice, the farmers grow in the ability to function even in the daily activity of their farming from the level of the Unified Field. This is the way in which they achieve “Krishi Kavach”, protection for the whole farming process from all misfortune and all damage. Why? Because when they function from the level of the Unified Field, the farmers will automatically be functioning at the level where all the laws of nature have their source, their basis, and so every impulse of their thought and action will be in harmony with or according to Natural Law, the intelligence of nature. . .

‘When the farmers begin to function completely in harmony with all the laws of nature, agreeing with the culturing intelligence of nature, such problems will simply be prevented before they arise,’ Dr Morris said. ‘At the same time . . . not only will negative things not happen, but anything positive that is required will happen, spontaneously and immediately.’

Dr Morris said that there is an expression Maharishi Mahesh Yogi quotes which new farmers will learn as an essential point of their understanding of how to be a supremely successful farmer.
This expression says that in the time of the administration of total Natural Law, when life was lived on the level of the Unified Field, then rain would fall just to fulfil the requirement of even one farmer. If even one farmer needed rain, the rain fell on his farm. That was how specific and complete the support of nature was for the farmers in that ancient time, and that time is now coming back to the world again.

‘These are the qualities of Vedic farming in the Vedic Consciousness of the farmer, the fundamental requirement of farming from this point on,’ Dr Morris said.

Dr Morris quoted from one of Maharishi's books, Celebrating Perfection in Education, about Vedic farming, farming that is fully in accord with natural law. He said, ‘The soil, the seed, and the weather conditions will all be in favour of the private and professional life of the farmer. In short, the fortune of the Vedic Farmer will blossom in affluence. The farmer's life will blossom in its parental role for the whole nation. The gift of the Vedic Farmer and Vedic Farming will be a new dawn for health and happiness, season after season.

‘Every harvest season will witness the smile of angels in Heaven, and the new taste of healthy food. Timely winds, timely rains, and timely sunshine will be at the disposal of the farmer to support every step of his profession, season after season . . . The happy farmer entering his field will be welcomed by the smiles of every plant in his field. He will celebrate the waves of higher consciousness within himself every day in his home, and bless the whole population, season after season, generation after generation.’

Maharishi is offering his Vedic Knowledge of total Natural Law to create a better quality of life and national self-sufficiency through Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture. Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture goes beyond the most rigorous existing standards for pure, organic food. By using the ancient Vedic Agricultural technologies recently revived by Maharishi, farmers rise to higher consciousness and live life in harmony with all the Laws of Nature.
