Our Biodynamic Association is a fledgling one with a great responsibility. I would suggest to you that we should put before us the task of making biodynamic agriculture mainstream agriculture in India. I believe if any country can lead the way towards this goal it is India because India more than any other civilization on the planet knows the deeper reality behind the perceived reality of our sense mind and life. Biodynamic practices address this deeper reality. I hope that this association would aim to close this division between conventional and "alternative" agriculture and help usher in a SANE art of agriculture that will deliver safe, living food.
