I shall now declare unto you in full this knowledge,
both phenomenal and numinous.
This being known, nothing further shall remain for you to know. 

Bhagavad-gita 7.2



There are two areas that need immediate attention:

1.  production of food to avoid reliance on food production that is unreliable
2.  need for communities to value the importance of cow culture knowing that our very existence is intimately connected with how well we look after cows in our villages.

Farmers should know that natural agriculture, devoid of an exploitative mentality, is the noblest profession. Their contribution to society is the most vital for without their produce the people in general cannot live. Natural farming, according to Vedic culture, is the basis of a sustainable economy wherein a family and a community can meet all of their necessities of life from the land

Rural communities form the basis of a sustainable culture where both material and spiritual values must be maintained.
