way even now. Even today we have sages with great
qualitieslivinginournation.

Today there is no politician, actor or any such saint
who have as much public support as Swami Ramdevji

We want to make the country economically strong.
At the same time, we want to keep a check on the
ruling power and want to encourage good conduct,
dignity and traditions. This is because unrestrained
ruling power leads to wickedness in people power
and with misuse of wealth power, hatred, cruelty,
restlessness and anarchy spreads in society.

say that honest, educated, patriotic and truthful people
should stay away from politics, whereupon these dis-
honest corrupt people can run the country according to
their whims and rob and destroy it. We should remove

Hence, with 100% voting, we have to replace the
corrupt political system of the nation with an excel-
lent one, and just as more than 30 countries includ-
ing Australia, Italy, France and Germany have done,
we too should have a rule for 100% compulsory vot-
ing in India. Only then the exploitation, injustice,
torture and corruption that is going on in the nation
in the name of governance will end and the wide-
spread feeling of disbelief and insecurity too will end
and India will become a powerful democratic nation
in true sense. Otherwise,25-30%peoplevoteandform
the government and 70-80% people become victims of
exploitation, injustice and torture in silence, and these

1. Self-confusion, because of self-confusion 2. cor-
ruption, 3. downfall of personal and national character,
4.insensitivity,5.disbelief,6.hopelessness,7.self-lan-
guor
ThequestionarisesintheheartofeachpatrioticIn-
dian as to why does corruption, the reason for unem-
ployment,povertyandhunger,thenation’sbiggestprob-
lem, exist?After research, study and experience of the
physicalscience,psychologyandtheentireemotionalset-
up of a person, we have come to this conclusion that
whenapersonmovesawayfromhiscentre,thenwithin
him arises dishonesty, bribery, hatred, dislike, self-lan-
guor, insensitivity, work confusion and all kind of irre-
sponsible thought, character and behaviour. Self-confu-
sion is the main reason for personal and national
downfall…asaresult,anarchyisspreadthroughoutthe
nation.Corruption,hatredandcrimerunwild.Fromself-
confusionariseinsensitivityandfrominsensitivity,dis-
beliefandhopelessnesspenetratedeeplyamongthecom-

seeps in the minds and thoughts of crores of people in
the nation. However, there is a solution to all these na-
tionaldangers–yoga.Whenapersonbecomesself-fo-
cussedwithyoga,thatiswhenheisjoinedwithhiscen-
tre, consciousness and soul, then he is not able to do
anything that goes against his soul. The soul is, by na-
ture, pure. The soul is full of love, kindness, light, en-
ergy,peace,joyandisalwayscontent.

10. DESTRUCTION OF THE NATION
WITH CORRUPTION
I. The main reason of unemployment:Itisonlybe-
causeofcorruptionthatunemploymentisprevalent
in the country. Corruption is the main reason for
unemployment,poverty,hunger,fear,want,robbery,
hatred,kidnappingsandcrime.Iftherewouldbeno
corruptioninmycountry,therewouldbenounem-
ployment.
II. Reason for obstruction in progress:Whenthenation’s
wealthgetsaccumulatedwithsomecorrupt,dishon-
estandcriminalkindofpoliticiansandofficersbe-
cause of corruption. The money/property that is
robbedfromthenationisspentfortheirdogs,cats,
cows, etc or else accumulated cash gets rotten in
their rooms, while the common man does not get
twosquaremealsaday.Thisisnotall—tohidetheir
crime, the money is stored in foreign banks as in
; YOG SANDESH-ENGLISH ; 23
Swiss bank accounts, which stop the progress of
thenation.
III. Reason for the humiliation of patriotic and honest
people: It is because of the increase of corruption
thatpatriotic,honestandhardworkingpeoplehave
tolivewithinsults.Many-a-times,thepriceofhon-
estyhastobepaidwithyourlife.
IV. Reason for death of Indian industries: When the
wealthofthenationgetsaccumulatedinthehands
ofafewcorruptpeople,theninvestmentofforeign
companieshavetobeinvitedforindustrialdevelop-
ment in the nation. First, our nation’s wealth gets
accumulatedinthewronghandsbecauseofcorrup-
tionandthenthesecorruptpeopledeclaretotheworld
that India is a poor nation. With such declaration,
theygetIndiaintodebtandallthemoreembarrass-
ingpositionbecauseofloansbytheWorldBankand
other prosperous nations. The truth, on the other
hand,isthatthereisnoothercountryintheworld
asprosperousandbeautifulasIndia.IfIndia’snatu-
ralresourcesandtaxmoneyisusedproperlythenin
justafewyearswecanbecomethebiggestpower
in the world. A few corrupt politicians and a few
corrupt officers have got together and are making
thecountrypoor.Ontopofthat,foreigncompanies
toostarttakingtheirshareofourwealth.Ifthereis
nocorruptioninthenationthentherewouldbedouble
the rate of progress. In the absence of corruption,
firstlythewealthofthenationwouldbeusedforthe
good of the nation and along with this the country
wouldnotbeintheneedforforeigninvestment.The
country will see industrial, academic and other
plannedgrowthswiththenation’sownwealth,the
country will prosper, and the foreign companies
which take away a huge chunk of our country’s
moneyeachyearwon’tbeabletolayanyclaimsto
our wealth. The country will become much stron-
ger from the economic point of view. Our exports
willincreaseandimportswilldecrease,thatis,mil-
lionsofpeoplewillgetemploymentfromindigenous
industries.However,becauseofselfishmotivesand
corruption, politicians place their own known cor-
rupt,dishonest,unconstitutionalandgood-for-noth-
ingofficersinchargeofgovernmentindustriesand
slow them down in the business race. First, these
corruptpeoplerobthenation–theytearupMother

it’s your turn. Loot whatever you can and then to-
gether let us sell it off to a multinational company
throughaconspiracy.Many-a-times,indigenousin-
dustriesandfactorieshavebecomevictimsofsuch
conspiracies.
V. The reason for four roads and communication sys-
tems: Whentherewouldbenocorruptioninvolved

nationwouldbeutilizedinmakinggoodroads,over-
bridges,etc.,thenourcommunicationsystemwould

cause of corruption in the medical sector, we have

essaryoperations,andterrorizinginthenameoftreat-
ment.Thepoorthusstruggleanddieuntimelydeaths.
IX. Reason for exploitation in place of governance: It
isonlybecauseofcorruptionthatinjusticeisdone
withpeoplewithbribery,hawalabusiness,exploita-
tioninsteadofgovernancebypoliceandadministra-
tion and misuse of law. The law is used to torture
poor,truthfulandhonestpeople.
X. Reason for lack of sanitation: It is only because of
politicalcorruptionthatthereisfilthinessinthena-
tion.Thereispoorsanitationinthecountyonlybe-
causeofourunconstitutionalwaysandbecauseofa

trycandefinitelybemadeclean.Theworkerswho

toerasethisimageandwehavetoincreasetheglory
ofthenationallovertheworld.Education,aware-
ness and a corruption-free strong punishment sys-
temneedstobesetuptomakethenationclean.
XI. Reason for insecurity in the nation: It is only be-
causeofpoliticalcorruptionthatourpoliticiansin-
dulgeindirtyandcheappoliticsofvotesandnation-
breakinghatred.Itisonlybecauseofthisthatthere
is controlled population growth in the country and
thegovernmentistakingnostrongstepsagainstit.
Pooreducationandunconstitutionalgovernanceare
themainreasonsforthislimitless,uncontrolledpopu-
lation growth. If the government thinks about the
welfareofthenationthenitcouldcontrolthepopu-
lationsizelikeChina.Insteadofcontrollingthepopu-
lation of our nation, we are also sheltering over 4
croreillegalmigrantsfromneighbouringBangladesh.
This can put our nation’s security at risk and have
alsotakenawayavenuesofincomeandworkfrom
us, increasing the problems of unemployment and
hunger.Itisonlybecauseofcorruptionthatanyone

putthelivesofallcitizensatrisk.Eventoday,fora
mereRs50-100,transportpapersarestampedtolet
loaded trucks pass without any checks, which is a
highrisktoournation.
XII. Reason for extortion and robbery:Apartfromcor-
ruption,thepeopleinvolvedwithindustrialdevelop-
mentandplannedgrowtharealsotorturedinanun-
constitutionalmannerandbusinesspersonsareex-
tortedbycorruptofficialsandpoliticians.Sometimes
this extortion is in the name of party donation and
sometimesinthenameofelectionfunds.First,there
is a robbery in the name of elections and once the
electionsarewon,itisasiftheyhavegotapermitto
rob. There is a fixed price for everything – before
electionsinthenameofdonationsandafterwardsin
theformofcorruptionandextortion!Isthisdemoc-
racy?Isthisfreedom?Thelawsthatareformulated
inthehighesttempleofjusticeinthenationaremostly
not used to correct the various systems of the na-
tion and instead are misused for looting, extortion
andcorruption.Inademocracy,thecentreofpower
and property is with the administration. With the
controlofadministrationmovingmoreandmoreinto
hands of corrupt people, the country has started
moving towards disaster instead of progress.
XIII. License Raj:Everythingisinthehandsofgovern-
mentofficials–fromaperson’sbirthcertificateto
hisdeathcertificate,fromtheregistrationofamo-
torcycletoacar,fromthebuildingofasmallhouse,
shop, factory or school, etc. to the running of it,
fromlandregistrationtomakingofrationcardand
identity cards. When most of the leaders who lead
the system themselves become corrupt, then this
corruptionspreadsfromthePMtothePeonandthe
peopleofthenationarerobbedwithoutmercy.This
iswhatweseeinIndiatoday.Insomestates,where
corruptionisless,thegovernmentandgovernment
officials do not interfere in people’s lives without
any reason.
XIV. Reason for the plight of agriculture and farmers:
Because of irresponsible politics, there is lack of
proper water control which leads to floods, fam-
ines,hungerandsuicidesbyfarmerseveryyear.The
totalagriculturallandinIndiais17.5crorehectare,
of which 10 crore hectare can be used for agricul-
turalpurposes.Ifwatermanagementisdoneprop-
erly, then this 10 crore hectares can be completely
utilizedandtheproblemsoffoodandhungercanbe
; YOG SANDESH-ENGLISH ; 25
removed and India can be made self-sufficient in
food grains and edible oils. The rural economy of
thenationcanbeimproved,bringinghappinessinto
thelivesofcroresoffarmersandagriculturalwork-
ers.
XV. Reason for inflation:Becausevaluesarenotprop-
erlyfixed,thepricesofcommoditiesrequiredbythe
common man such as iron and cement reach the
sky, and the farmer does not get full price for his
crop.Asaresult,thegapbetweentherichandpoor
becomesveryhuge.Andthisoceanicgapbecomes
thereasonforsocialinequalityandinjustice.
XVI. Merciless exploitation of natural resources:Itis
theresultofourcorruptpoliticalsystemthattoday
even though India has plenty of natural resources
available in the form of iron, gold, diamonds and
pearls,mineralproducts,gasandpetrol,thecountry
isbeingmadeweakerdaybydayduetomisuseof
these resources by government officials, in a kind
ofconspiracy.Theiron,coal,goldandmineralmines
areknowinglyhandedovertomafiagangsbysome
corrupt,dishonestandcriminalpeoplefortheirself-
ish gains. If the natural resources are mined judi-
ciously,managedwellandskillfullyhandledtheneven
todayIndiacanbeawealthycountry.
XVII. Reason for the insult of intellectual talent: Indi-
anshavealotofintellectualabilityandtalent.Indi-
ans are running many important organizations in
manycountries.However,here,intellectualtalentis
intentionallyinsultedandsuchpeoplearenotallowed
toprogresssothatsomeuneducated,idiotic,illiter-
ateandimmoralpeoplecandestroythecountrymer-
cilessly.
XVIII. Reason for good-for-nothing, unconstitutional
and irresponsible conduct:Whenthepoliticiansthat
lead the system themselves show irresponsible
behaviouranddonothaveanyliabilitytowardstheir
duties, then the organizations of the entire country
andthepeoplerunningthoseorganizationsbecome
unconstitutional,good-for-nothingandirresponsible.
This is the reason that in most of the government
schoolsandcolleges,wehaveteachersbutnoedu-
cation. In government hospitals, we have doctors
butthephilosophyoftreatmentisnotthere.Despite
theexistenceofpoliceadministration,criminalsand
corruptpeopledonotgetpunished.Victimshaveto
gofrompillartoposttogetjusticewhilecriminals
moveaboutfreely.
XIX. The reason for wrong intention and wrong poli-
cies: Becauseofourwrongintentions,wrongpoli-
ciesaremadeandbecauseofthesewrongpolicies,
every village has a brewery.As a result, the poor,
hard-working farmers and underage children get
ruined because of in-
toxication.Thelivesof
womenandchildrenat
home get destroyed.
Wearenotabletomete
justice to the country
and its people in the
administration of the
educationpolicy,medi-
calpolicy,agricultural
policy,securitypolicy
andforeignpolicyand
the country keeps
moving towards ruin. Just to provide benefits to
certain people and because of cheap mentality, we
givesubsidytoslaughterhousesthatkillsuchben-
eficial animals such as cows and buffalos, and be-
causeofthis,anegativeenergyiscreatedinthecoun-
trybythecriesoflakhsofinnocentanimalsevery-
day. Society and homes are affected with restless-
ness, insecurity and adversity. India is an agricul-
tural country and even today, in many states, carts
arepulledbybullocks,buffalosandcamels,theland
istilledwiththehelpofbullocksorcamels,which
saves millions of rupees in petrol and diesel costs.
Whenallthesebeneficialanimalsarekilledbythe
slaughter houses and agriculture gets mechanized,
then on one hand many lakhs of rupees would be
spentonpetrolanddieselandontheotherpollution

everamountofmoneyisspentinpetrolanddieselis
goingtothegulfcountries,andifmoneygoesoutof
the country in any form then it is not good for the
economic state of the nation and the country be-
comes weak.
XX. Reason for the loss of millions of rupees of the
common man in the stock market:Becauseofcol-
laborationbetweensomecorrupt,dishonest,uncon-
stitutionalandgood-for-nothingofficialsandsome
greedy,corruptbusinessmenandwrongpoliciesof
someirresponsiblepoliticiansaswellasshort-sighted,
looserulesandlaws,millionsofhard-earnedmoney
of the nation have gone down the drainpipe of the
stock market recently. This painful episode is not
justconnectedtothehighlydishonestHarshadMehta
or to Raju, the owner of Satyam Company. If the
thousands of companies in the stock market are
judgedwithoutanybias,thenwhoknowshowmany
companieswillbefoundtobewalkingin‘Asatyam’
(untruthful) paths and cheating the nation. Even
thoughcertaincompaniesarenotmakingprofit,they
areshowntobeprofit-makingcompaniesonpaper
and their shares which are actually worth peanuts

arebeingsoldforcroresofrupees.Allthisishap-
peningundertheeyesofthegovernmentbecauseof

the loss of millions of rupees in the stock market.

Tillthetimethepeoplewholeadthesystemdo
notmendtheircharacter,corruptionwillnotberemoved
from the nation. It is the biggest challenge to mobilise
patriotic people with character to develop leaders with
character.
Itisatruththatthereisnodroughtofpatriotic,hon-

16. FIVE NATIONAL MYTHS AND THE REALITY
1. India is a poor country, 2. Only about 5% people
pay tax in the nation, 3. All people are dishonest, 4.
Corruption cannot be removed, only corruption will
govern the nation, 5. The nation’s progress and em-
ployment is not possible without foreign investment.
The Fact
Itisaconspiracyrunbysomecorrupt,dishonestand
cunningpeopletospreadtheseliesandfalserumours.It
is a conspiracy to develop self-languor amongst people
thattheseliesandfalsefigureshavebeencirculated.On
thebasisofreality,truefiguresandtheories,wepresent
the facts in front of the citizens so that patriotic people
may get together and unmask the corrupt people, and
come forward to change the country and the country’s
fate.
1. India is a poor nation!....White Lie!
Fact: India is the most powerful and richest na-
tion in the world.
This is a very big truth that people of most of the
developedcountriesareweakbuttheirleadershiporlaw
isverystrong.Here,thepeopleofthenationarestrong
buttheleadershipiscowardly,timidandcorruptandthe
law is weak. The total budget of local authorities, state
governments and central government of India is Rs 20
lakh crore. And this Rs 20 lakh crore budget is there
whencorruptionisinitspeakeverywhereinthenation.
Ifcorruptiondidnotexist,thetotalbudgetofIndiacould
be Rs 35-40 lakh crore.You think, you decide, can the
budget of a poor nation be so huge? The corrupt and
dishonestpeopleofthenationareintentionallyportraying

theirwhimsandrunanautocracyinthenameofdemoc-
racy.
2. Only about 5% of India’s people pay tax! …White
Lie!
Fact: Almost 100% people pay tax in India!
EveryIndianwhoputsontwogarmentstocoverhis
body and uses 1-2 bars of soap in the year or wears
shoesorsandalsorgoestoshopsorthemarketandbuys
daily essential goods such as flour, salt, toothpaste, oil,
spices, paper, pen, iron, cement, etc., pays duty in the
formofVATorexciseonalltheseitems.Evenacommon
mandefinitelypaystaxinonewayortheothersuchas
stamp duty, water tax, house tax, sewage tax, road tax,
servicetax,saletax,etc.Thus,isn’tthisawhiteliethat
only5%peoplepaytax!Thismythsandfalserumours
are spread in a conspiracy so that if some corrupt an
; YOG SANDESH-ENGLISH ; 29
dishonestpeoplerobthenation,thennovoiceisraised,
so that when someone asks for an account of the tax
moneypaidbythesecorruptpeople,theyareabletosay,
‘You do not even pay tax. Who are you to ask?’ This
mythhasbeensodeeplyembeddedintheheartsofthe

lectedbythegovernmentthroughvarioustaxes,money

penedtothatmoney?’
3.All people are dishonest!...The biggest conspiracy.
Fact: In India, 99% of the common people are
honest, or they want to live with honesty.
This kind of lie that everyone is dishonest is spread
becausetheillusionthateveryoneisdishonestbecomes
deeplyengravedinthemindofapatriotic,honestperson
withcharacter.Whereastherealityisthat99%ofcom-
monIndiansarehonestorwanttolivewithhonestywhile
99% of the representatives of the nation, that is almost
99% of the politicians, MPs, MLAs were dishonest. In
order to hide their own dishonesty, these 99% corrupt
anddishonestpeoplehavecarriedoutthisverybigcon-
spiracybycallingthe99%honestcitizensofthenation
dishonestandliars.Thedaythese99%sensitive,aware,
patrioticandhonestpeopleunitetogether,these1%dis-
honestpeoplewillbedestroyed.AndIndiawillbecalleda
nationofhonestpeople,notdishonestpeople.
4.Corruption can never be removed, only corrup-
tion will rule the nation!...Deep conspiracy!
Resolution: Only honest, patriotic people will gov-
ern the nation
Onlycorruptpeoplewillgovernthenation.Eventhis
lieisbeingtoldlikeaconspiracywithwhichhonest,pa-
trioticpeopleareneverabletocomeintoauthorityand

honest, sensitive, sincere people with character to the
seat of authority. By organizing patriotic people, I will
unveilthetruthbehindthemyththatonlycorruptpeople
canruleoverthenation.Myresolutionisthathenceforth
onlypatrioticpeoplewillgovernthenation.
5.The nation’s progress and employment is not pos-
sible without foreign investment!...Utter falsehood.
fact: If resources are 100% utilized then our na-
tion will progress and there will not be any unem-
ployment.
Thisisalsoaprojectedlieinordertorobthenation
and a conspiracy that without foreign investment our
country will not progress. The truth is if the wealth of
thenationisnotdestroyedbycorruptionisbigenoughto
ensurethatnotevenonepersonofthenationneednotbe

itedinthehandsofthedishonestpeople,andisinvested

biggesteconomicpowerintheworld.
Today the reality is that about Rs 70 lakh crores,
moneythathasbeenstolenbysomecorruptpeople,are
deposited in foreign banks.And the corruption by the
corruptpeoplecontinues.Realityisnotthatthiscountry
won’tbeabletoprogresswithoutforeigndirectinvest-
ment (FDI); truth is the day we bring back our stolen
money from foreign banks, that day the world will not
run. The world is running by our money stolen by cor-
rupt, dishonest people.At the very least, the economic
sourceofpowerfulnationslikeSwitzerlandcomesfrom
thecorruptioninourcountry.
17. OUR FIVE FORTHCOMING NATIONAL-SOCIAL
REVOLUTIONS –
1. Corruption removal, 2. Making all services
available to the last person in the country, 3.
Cleanliness revolution, 4. Establishment of na-
tional and Indian languages in the nation, 5. Free
education for the poor and compulsory inclusion of
yoga education in the curriculum.
1.Removal of corruption: Byunitingthepeopleof
thenationthroughthemediumofyoga,Iwillrunana-
tionwide revolution and remove the stain of corruption
fromMotherIndia.
2. Availability of all services to everyone: In each
of the 6,38,365 villages of the country, a yoga teacher

imparted through the medium of the yoga teachers.We
willgivethelastpersoninIndiathedignityofleadinga

3. Nationwide Cleanliness Mission: By running a

Shall we make administrators from amongst those
people who cannot administer themselves! For whom
national duty is not above everything, money is every-

their nation and for wealth can become a traitor to the

YOGA – MEDICAL TREATMENT METHOD

and place a question mark against any treatment
method.However,byplacingvarioustreatmentmeth-
ods in front of the patient, I want to give him the
opportunity of being able to choose the best treat-
ment method.

Now heat yourself with the fire of yoga and gain

35. The road to retirement from crime and ambitions–
Instead of asking for position, power, luxury from
god, you should ask for his mercy. If a person’s

49. Happiness comes from within, not from outside.
Whenyouareinthestateofcompletesilenceorcon-

from within.We build up obstinacy towards every-
thing – religion, truth, saints, life, work, duty, non-
duty,bodyandtheentireuniverseonthebasisofthe
sanchit, what we hear, what we see, and inferred
knowledge.

work with complete knowledge, strength, energy,

work is stronger than fate because it is hard work
that creates destiny.The hard work of this moment
decides the fate of the next moment. It is the truth
that life only exists in the present; the past has al-

THE ROAD TO FULFILLMENT OF LIFE AND SALVA-

ness. Maharshi Dayanandji used to say the person who
meditates,themindwithwhichhemeditatesandthething
onwhichhemeditates,exists.However,inSamadhi,the
soul is absorbed only to attain the Lord’s form of joy,
peace and light, and in the light. Just as a person upon
diving into water remains under water for some time,

That in which the mind is re-

are“SavitarkSamapti”.Inmedita-
tion, differences remain between

Leave aside thoughts of salvation and heaven,
do your work!
Thereisaneedforpositivechangeinthepresentpo-

insayingthattheyareindifferenttowardsreligion.How-
ever, they forget that no one can live without religion.
Religion is not merely another name for going to the

today, we mostly see illusion, wickedness, hatred and

we look at history, we will know that 2000 years ago,
there was no monastery, temple, mosque or church on
earth.Approximately before 2000 years, there was no

years,therewasnoknowledgeoftheGitaandbefore9

thewordreligiousindifferenceismeaningless,theword

in the name of religion, caste and sub-caste has been

rise above our own needs and should not identify our-

leaders do not let you know the truth because of their
own selfish needs, obstinacy, ignorance and arrogance.
And if you yourself start defining religion being over-

thenyoutoowon’tgettoknowthetruth.Hence,search
forreligion,truthandgoodnesswiththelightofscience,

The teachers and external guides may misguide you.
Hence, our great sages have said, ‘become your own

Whatisauspicious?Thisquestionarises

in directions we establish auspi-

any purification ritual such as

11. INDIAN CULTURE IS NOT AGAINST SCIENCE
According to Yajurveda, invention of science is
also necessary for a happy life

for happiness and peace of the soul, spirituality in the
formofdevotion,worship,meditationandSamadhiare
also very necessary.That is in Indian culture, material-

toknowledge,scienceandworshipintheVedas.Indian
cultureisnotone-sided,itismultifaceted.
Our ancestral sages were experts in geology, astrol-
ogy, surgery and philosophy. Our forefathers were fa-
miliarwithallknowledgesincludingaircraftscience,tele-
phone,television,educationandhealth,etc.Unfortunately,
after Mahabharat the downfall of Indian culture began.
Withthepassageoftime,thedescriptionofreligionand
culture was limited to the fulfillment of selfish whims
andwelimitourscientificreligiontoonlyexternalrituals.
Today, it has again become necessary to rise above
obstinacyandselfishnessandlookatIndiantraditionand
culture with the light of science, and this is the eternal
truth that India and Indians were never against science
andourcultureistotallyforscience.
ThestudyandresearchofVedicsocialism,classsys-
tems, Vedic education system, knowledge of ancient
Ayurvedic tradition, Vedic agricultural tradition, Vedic
mathematics, Vedic astrology and vastu shastra, etc. is
necessary.Itisonlybyunderstandingandexperiencing
the complete foundation of ancient Indian culture and
civilization that we will be able to say with pride that
Indiancultureisbetterthanwesternculture!
12. EARTH IS BECOMING BARREN WITH DANGER-
OUS CHEMICALS
If the profit gained in the name of fertilizers is
given to farmers then there won’t be any shortage
of food grains in the country
In the Sanskrit language, the word ‘kshetra’ is used
equally to denote both the body as well as agricultural
field.InHindiliterature,theword‘Khet’orfieldisused
instead. There is a deep connection between the bodily
fieldandtheagriculturalfield.Thisisbecausewhatever
is sown in the fields ultimately comes into the human
field,thatis,itcomesintothestomach.Thehumanbody
isnourishedbyfoodgrainsandmilkfromanimalsthatis

mixing with animal dung produces a chemical reaction
that increases crop production. Try and use only urea
withoutanyanimaldungorleaves,andyouwillseethat
even the crop burns out.Another shocking element be-
