The slogan of the Summit was “Redefining Agriculture and Reshaping Lives“. The main subject discussed was “Jaivik Kheti – Krushi ka Bhavishya” (Organic Farming and the Future of Agriculture).
In this Global Agriculture and Food Summit – 2018, the Brahma Kumaris were specially invited to participate. BK Rajendra from Palwal, Haryana, attended on behalf of the Brahma Kumaris and was felicitated by Mr. Rajiv Kumar, CEO of OFAG, as a main Speaker. Other Honourable Guests on the dias were Mr. Randhir Singh, the Agricultural Minister, Jharkhand; Mr. Manjunath Bhajantri, Joint Secretary of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Co-operative Department, Jharkhand; Mr. Krishna Behari, Mr. Narayan Upadhyay, and Mr. Chandra Shekhar Singh.
Other Officers of concerned Government Departments and members of the Livelihood Promotion Society, Ranchi, Jharkhand State, attended the program with rapt attention and they all were inspired with the knowledge and felt very happy.
BK Rajendra, from Palwal, Haryana, is a member of the Rural Development Wing of the Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation, a Brahma Kumaris Sister organization at Mount Abu, Head Quarters, Rajasthan, and an exponent in Yogic Kheti, Farming with the Power of Yoga.
Addressing the Guests, Officials of concerned Government Departments, he said that Farmers today — out of greed and eagerness to produce more crops to earn more — are using harmful insecticides, poisoning and destroying the yielding strength of the soil. Even the farm products, vegetables, grains and cereals are all becoming poisonous and harmful to health. He said, “Our Mind is affected by the food we eat. So if our food is Pure our Qualities will be Nobler. Our ancestors used to worship Nature because it fulfills all our needs. India is basically an Agricultural Country. Here, 70% of the people live in Villages. They have a deep relationship with Nature.”
BK Rajendra, explaining about Yogic Kheti, Cultivation through Yoga, said, “Rajayoga enhances the Yielding Capacity of the Soil; by using Organic Manures the crops, vegetables and all other farm products become Nutritional and Healthy for mankind. Thus by Redefining the way of Cultivation, Health, Happiness and Prosperity in Social Life can be restored once again. Thereby the Future of Agriculture will be Sustained Globally.”
The Global Agriculture and Food Summit was also attended by the Livelihood Promotion Society of Ranchi, Jharkhand State. Everyone was impressed. BK Rajendra, being an Inspirational Motivator, presented the facts so effectively that the audience could realize the truth and were very happy.
