Yantra Farming

A Pioneering Leap in Agriculture with Pranashakty’s Save Farmer Initiative

Marking its 20th anniversary, Pranashakty International unveils the impactful “Save Farmer” initiative, led by Sri Pranaji. This pioneering project involves placing a unique spiritual yantra in fields to replace fertilizers and repel all insect and pest that can harm the agriculture plants. It aims to make organic food accessible to general public and  promises significant benefits in national health, economic growth, and food security.

This is not merely a spiritual concept, but a functioning reality.

  • Proof of concept : Completed successfully 100% 100%
  • Large Scale Trail Status : Land is being prepared 20% 20%
  • Full implementation status: Scheduled 0% 0%

The initiative targets a critical issue in modern farming – the heavy reliance on commercial fertilizers & pestisides.

Fertilizers and pestisides are essential but financially burdensome for farmers. Abruptly discontinuing their use risks global food shortages for over 8 billion people. Acknowledging these challenges, Pranashakty explores new territories, experimenting with alternative solutions.

One such groundbreaking approach involves using energy as a substitute for traditional fertilizers & pestisides. 

This innovative method not only promises to reduce farming costs but also offers a myriad of environmental benefits. It’s a strategy that safeguards the farmers, conserves soil and water, and promotes better health. Moreover, it paves the way for a future where all food could potentially be organic, heralding a new era of sustainable and responsible agriculture.

Farmers’ Health at Risk: Pesticide Use Linked to Increased Cancer, Respiratory, and Skin Diseases

Fertilizer use worldwide varies based on crop type, cost, availability, and application techniques. For example, China and Brazil have high per hectare consumption, whereas Sub-Saharan Africa’s usage is minimal. In India, urea is preferred for its affordability and government subsidies. Yet, the environmental and health impacts, like soil degradation and water contamination from excessive use, pose major concerns.

The use of pesticides in India has significantly increased over the years. In 2020, the per hectare consumption of pesticides reached 600 grams, up from 290 grams per hectare in 2014-2015.

Fertilisers & their impact

In India, the use of fertilizers by farmers has shown significant trends over the years. Over the last decade, the country has consumed about 500 Lakh Metric Tonnes (LMT) of fertilizer, with a notable preference for urea over other types like Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) and Muriate of Potash (MOP), which are relatively more expensive.

In the financial year 2020, India’s overall consumption of fertilizers was approximately 61 million tonnes, highlighting the extensive use of these agricultural inputs.The Indian government plays a crucial role in making fertilizers affordable for farmers through subsidies. For instance, a bag of urea that would typically cost Rs 3500 is made available to farmers for Rs 300, thanks to government subsidies. In a recent year, the Indian government provided a subsidy of around Rs 1 lakh 60 thousand crores, which was expected to rise to more than Rs 2 lakh crore.

India is the world’s second-largest consumer and the third-largest producer of urea. Annually, the country consumes around 33 million tonnes of urea, of which approximately 70% is produced domestically, and the remainder is imported. The impact of fertilizers on soil and human health is a complex issue. The excessive use of fertilizers, especially urea, can lead to soil degradation and reduced soil fertility over time. This is because an imbalance in nutrient application can disrupt the natural biological processes in the soil. Additionally, the runoff of these chemicals into water bodies can lead to eutrophication, negatively impacting aquatic ecosystems. Regarding human health, the overuse of chemical fertilizers can lead to the contamination of water sources, which is a significant concern. This contamination can lead to various health issues, including but not limited to, gastrointestinal problems and other long-term health risks.

Pestisides & their impact

Pesticide usage is highest in states like Punjab, Haryana, and Maharashtra. This heavy usage of pesticides poses serious risks to human health and the environment. Research has found pesticide residues in various sources, including fishes and human breast milk, which is alarming. The agricultural sector in India, being a major contributor to the GDP, faces substantial losses due to pests, estimated at around US $42.66 million annually. The challenge lies in balancing the need for pest control with the hazardous impacts of pesticides on health and the environment.

The use of pesticides among farmers in India has been linked to various health issues, including cancer. Studies conducted in different regions, like Punjab and West Bengal, have reported health impacts on farmers due to pesticide exposure. These health effects include less than 20% of farmers experiencing breathing diseases, cancer, skin diseases, and other health effects like nausea, skin irritation, and headaches. The improper or excessive use of pesticides in agriculture has raised concerns about ecological imbalance and health hazards to humans and animals. The studies emphasize the importance of judicious use of pesticides and the need for awareness programs and safety interventions for farmers

Exploring the Siddha Way

How does this yantra work?

Jothi Siddhar Sri Pranaji’s Siddha solution uses a special yantra, a sacred shape, to attract cosmic energy. Made from stone, this yantra pulls nutrients from the cosmos to enrich the soil. It could provide endless nourishment to farms, possibly replacing commercial fertilizers. It also can effecively repel pests thereby removing the need of using pestisides that are harmful for humansThe use of yantras in the Siddha system, which merges medicinal and spiritual practices, is based on the belief in the subtle energies of the universe and their influence on the physical realm.  The proposed yantra for soil nutrition is a 12-inch stone capable of covering an area of 100 meters, continuously supplying the soil with essential nutrients.

A Step Towards Sustainable Future
The “Save Farmer” initiative, featuring Yantra Farming, blends ancient wisdom with modern agricultural needs, offering a fresh perspective on sustainable farming. It highlights the importance of merging traditional and modern techniques with a balanced, critical view. Continued research and validation are essential to fully realize its agricultural potential.  This initiative is not just a step towards sustainable agriculture; it represents a broader vision of harmonious coexistence with nature, leveraging the wisdom of the past for a sustainable future.

The Philosophical Foundation

Central to this approach is the “Andam and Pindam” concept, a cornerstone of ancient Indian philosophy, suggesting a profound connection between the cosmos (Andam) and the individual (Pindam). This principle echoes the Vedic teachings that emphasize the non-separation of human consciousness from the universal whole. The Vedas, among the oldest texts in Hinduism, propose a dual reality where the material and non-material worlds interconnect.

Scientific Perspective

The Siddha approach to soil nutrition, harnessing cosmic energy through a yantra, undoubtedly intrigues those seeking sustainable agricultural solutions. However, its foundation in spiritual and philosophical beliefs rather than conventional scientific methodology invites skepticism and critical analysis from both the scientific and spiritual communities. Recognizing this, proponents of this method have embarked on an empirical journey to validate its efficacy.

In a significant move towards evidence-based validation, a real-life experiment was conducted. A plot of land was divided into two sections: one employing the yantra method (referred to as yantra farming) and the other without it. Notably, neither section used any commercial fertilizers during the experiment. This setup aimed to provide a controlled environment to observe and compare the effects of the yantra on soil nutrition and plant growth.

The results of this experiment could potentially offer tangible evidence to support or refute the effectiveness of the yantra method in enhancing soil fertility. In anticipation of these results, there is a plan to involve agriculture and soil scientists for in-depth analysis and documentation, adhering to recognized scientific principles.

Such a collaborative approach, integrating traditional wisdom with modern scientific scrutiny, could pave the way for a more comprehensive understanding of the yantra’s role in agriculture. It represents a significant step towards bridging the gap between spiritual practices and empirical science, providing a platform for mutual learning and potential advancement in sustainable farming methods.

Innovative Pathway to Global Organic Farming Success

Yantra Farming, as proposed in the “Save Farmer” initiative by Pranashakty International, could potentially address many of the challenges faced by farmers in transitioning to organic farming. Here’s how this innovative approach might counter each issue:

  1. Financial Constraints and Loss of Income: Yantra Farming, by potentially eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, could reduce the financial burden associated with purchasing these inputs. This reduction in costs could help balance the financial impact of the three-year transition period required for organic certification, thereby alleviating one of the major financial challenges faced by farmers​​.
  2. Knowledge and Expertise: If Yantra Farming proves to be as effective as claimed, it may require less specialized knowledge in chemical-based pest control and soil fertility management, which are significant aspects of conventional farming. This could lower the learning curve for farmers transitioning to organic methods.
  3. Certification and Regulatory Compliance: By eliminating the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, Yantra Farming could simplify the process of meeting organic certification standards. This is because the core requirement for organic farming is the avoidance of such synthetic inputs.
  4. Market Access and Marketing Strategies: With the potential for improved soil fertility and pest control through Yantra Farming, farmers might be able to maintain or even increase crop yields. This could enhance their competitiveness in the organic market, making it easier to access and establish themselves in these markets.
  5. Risk Management and Crop Vulnerability: If Yantra Farming effectively enhances soil health and fertility, it could lead to stronger, more resilient crops, thereby reducing vulnerability to pests, diseases, and weather-related risks. This would address a major concern in organic farming where reliance on natural processes sometimes increases risk factors.
  6. Scaling Up Operations: For larger farms, implementing Yantra Farming across extensive areas might be more feasible and cost-effective than traditional organic methods, especially if it requires fewer inputs and less complex crop rotation or soil management practices.
  7. Soil and Farm History Considerations: Yantra Farming’s potential to improve soil health and fertility could make it easier for farms with varying histories and conditions to transition to organic farming. This would be particularly beneficial for farms that have been heavily tilled or have poor soil structure due to conventional farming practices.

In summary, Yantra Farming, as part of the “Save Farmer” initiative, presents an intriguing solution that might address several key challenges faced by farmers in transitioning to organic farming.
