Guruji consistently emphasises the importance of having environmental awareness and says that by staying connected with nature, one can maintain good health and achieve fulfillment. It is universally true that all living beings, without exception, require food for survival. This is where Sahaj Smriti Yog’s spiritual description of pure food becomes relevant to every living being on our planet.
In his teachings, Guruji describes Kshetra as a concept that transcends definition. Just as the human body serves as the Kshetra, providing a conducive environment for trillions of microbes in our gut, enabling us to exist as our true selves, the Earth serves as the Kshetra for all other life forms and their interconnected ecosystems, supporting the well-being of our physical bodies.
By Kshetra, we mean the creation of such sustainable environments and spaces on Earth that nurture and sustain life through optimal conditions and surroundings. This vision is the essence of the Kshetra Darpan movement, which seeks to explore sustainable practices and eco-friendly techniques that respect Nature’s intricate relationship with flora & fauna, traditional crop patterns, mineral composition of the soil and the diverse tapestry of life. It also incorporates the cultural aspects of communities, their dietary habits and their harmonious coexistence.
Our current agricultural processes are unsustainable and demand a comprehensive reevaluation to prioritise the well-being of people, soil and the overall environment. We need sustainable agriculture methods that are not only cost-effective but also minimise climate impact while simultaneously yielding
multiple benefits. We must adopt practices that raise income, foster inclusivity and safeguard biodiversity.
Darpan’s natural and sustainable farming practices spearhead an initiative and movement aimed at restoring purity in our food production. By cultivating chemical-free grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables using eco-friendly farming techniques, we strive to bring back the essence of wholesome nutrition.
