Type of Course
Gardening in Light of Maharishi AyurVeda
Theme of Course
Vedic agriculture is ‘agree-culture’ – it agrees with the culturing intelligence of Natural Law. How does the culturing intelligence function? We can understand it from modern science and from Vedic science. This course offers the same deep, scientific, knowledge and techniques of organic gardening as before, but now also in terms of the fundamentals of Ayurveda. The knowledge of plant care, called Vriksh-ayurveda, uses the Doshas in the same way for plants and the soil as for humans in Maharishi AyurVeda.
For example, the Doshas can be in a state of balance or imbalance in the soil and plants, and we can easily learn how to balance them with compost, herbs, and water. Our Agni (digestion) functions largely through our intestinal microbiome, which has its parallel in the soil microbiome for plants, and the same principles and ways of handling it apply for our digestion and the garden.
Your benefits from this course:
This Ayurvedic approach makes gardening simpler, more self-referral, easier, more intimate, and more fun. Gardening becomes like an extension of our self-care through Maharishi AyurVeda.
The course provides practical knowledge to start and maintain a garden, big or small, with least effort. It includes sections on favourite crops like tomatoes, cucumbers, and potatoes. Learn to garden in accord with natural law so your garden is maximally self-sufficient and productive, and the biggest work is also the biggest joy – the harvest.
This course is offered by the Maharishi College of Perfect Health International – Department of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture in partnership with MERU.
