Agriculture & Rural Development Wing(RERF) of Brahma Kumaris Organized a Mega Conference at Nagpur, Vidarbha, Maharashtra. The inauguration of Grand Mega Conference on "Sustainable Yogic Agriculture and Holistic Rural Development" was done by Mr. Sunil Kedar, Cabinet Minister of Animal Husbandry and Sports Division, Maharashtra; BK Sarla, Chairperson of the Agriculture and Rural Development Wing; BK Raju, Vice Chairman of the Agriculture and Rural Development Wing from Mount Abu, Rajasthan; Mr. Bhagyashri Banayat, Director of (Reshim); Mr. Ravindra Bhonsale, Joint Director of Agriculture; Mr. Tek Chand Savarkar; Mr. Manish Sharma, Director of Soil Conservation; BK Sunanda, the National Coordinator of the Agriculture and Rural Development Wing; BK Dashrath, State Coordinator of Maharashtra; BK Rajesh Dave, Deputy General Manager of NABARD; Executive Members BK Balaso Ruge and BK Kanu Patel; Dr Ram Kharche; BK Prem, BK Shobha, BK Mangala, BK Rukmini, Director of Vishwa Shanti Sarovar BK Rajani and others.
Praising Brahma Kumaris Mr. Sunil Kedar said, "It's a unique effort to improve the condition of Farmers. Myself, being a farmer, I am very grateful that you have come out with such a practical Novel Project which can change lives and character of farmers, which is also the need of the hour". He said that attention would be given while Welfare Projects by the Government for the farmers are created.
BK Sarla said that the Farmers are facing many problems at present. It is necessary to awaken their self esteem. For this they have to get connected with Supreme Authority, God. This can happen through Rajayoga Meditation by which their Self Confidence will get enhanced and farmer's cases of suicides will come down. She said, “Balanced Mind is the basic foundation of noble activities. As one burning lamp can ignite row of lamps, similarly by Self transformation we can transform the whole World into a Golden World”.
BK Raju said that the Indian Farmers are given the title of "Annadata" which means "Food Provider". Because of their hard toil we are able to lead our lives comfortably. In Vidarbha many farmers are committing suicides. Government Welfare Projects could not solve all their problems. "Sustainable Yogic Farming" is the only solution. This project was started in Maharashtra itself. He said "As the Food so is the Mind, is the saying. So if we consume unhealthy food, our Mind too will become unhealthy with bad thoughts". He said that no chemical fertilizers are used in Yogic Farming. He discussed about the findings of Researches held at various Universities.
Mr. Ravindra Bhonsale said that for doing Yogic Farming one has to be in connection with Nature, by which many diseases will get cured automatically.
