Watch videos about the early years of the Vedic Eco Village. Hear from students, workers and farmers from around the world who are participating in building this project.
To become dependent on another’s maintenance is very degrading; therefore, according to the Vedic system, everyone should live independently.
In Kali-yuga the government will levy taxes without reciprocally benefiting the citizens. In this age there will also be a shortage of rain; therefore a scarcity of food will arise, and the citizens will be very much harassed by government taxation. In this way the citizens will abandon their attempts to lead a peaceful life and will leave their homes and hearths and go to the forest in sheer disappointment. Purport of Shrimad Bhagavatam 5.13.6
