Using technique & approach of Natueco Science & Philosophy
as practiced & learnt from Late Shri S.A. Dabholkarji.
Natueco Farming tries to establish the dignity of farming, to prove that farming doesn’t need to be dependent on any external inputs of fertilizers, pesticides and expensive seeds to show results of extraordinary quality and quantity.
Natueco Farming follows the principles of eco-system networking of nature. It is different from organic or natural farming both in philosophy and practice. It emphasizes harvesting the sun through a critical application of scientific inquiries & experiments that are rooted in the neighborhoods resources. It depends on developing a thorough understanding of plant physiology, plant geometry of growth, plant fertility and plant biochemistry.

Deepak Suchde strongly believes that the type of non-commercial farming for self-sufficiency is possible if a person is SPIRITUALLY inclined. For him, it is not just a Farming, it is a Lifestyle. And in this Course he will share his experiences with us. We will learn how to build fertile living soil “Amrut Mitti”, we will understand our complex relationship and exchange with Nature, that leads to an awakening of our spiritual potential. He says: ”The way we eat determines the way we live and the way we farm; food production represents our relationship with the Earth. If this relationship is free from exploitation and cruelty to animals and the Earth, it positively affects the content of our minds and our lives.” Some has said Give me soil of Nation I will tell health of Nation.
Start becoming the change you want to see in the World!

5. Biography of yogacharya Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar)
Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar) was born in 1953 and discovered Yoga in 1978. He went through intensive, full-time traininf for over 6 years with Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune. Already after 3 months, Guruji allowed him to assist his classes on all levels. Everyday hours of practice, permitted Sharat Arora to understand in his own body all the asanas and props that B.K.S. Iyengar was showing. However what woke up a special attention in Sharat Arora was the therapy sessions for the people who were coming to the Pune Institute to heal themselves. Seeing how Guruji didn’t deny a help to anyone, serving countless patients even in the most difficult health cases with which western medicine couldn’t deal, he understood his great compassion towards all the people. For that reason, he was like a father to him, the dearest teacher giving an excellent example. So that he could bring help to all of those, who needed guidance in healing their body and soul, Sharat Arora decided to dedicate his life to yoga. His involvement in the Yoga therapy was very significant in his development as a practitioner and teacher. His fusion of this experience and extensive study of Western as well as Ayurvedic medicine, greatly influenced his continually-evolving Yoga technique and sharpened his unique Yoga therapy skills. In following years, his indescribable source of inspiration were: Vipassana meditation practice conducted by Goenkaji himself as well as the enlightened spiritual teachers: Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharshi and Poonjaji or “Papaji” the “Dearest Father” as he used to be called lovingly by his dedicated students. A most significant spiritual transformation Sharat Arora went through in the presence of Poonjaji’s light of love. He had that opportunity to learn from him personally, and even had permission to conduct the yoga classes in his Satsang Bhavan. During 37 years experience of self-practice, teaching and healing, Sharat Arora very much deepened his yoga understanding as well as brought a big input into the B.K.S. Iyengar method.
Sharat Arora clear and precise instructions, constant and detailed attentiveness, focus on providing students with the tools to practice and explore independently, and therapeutic knowledge for treating ailments and injuries, are combined with a spiritual depth that makes his instruction unique.

10. Participants feedbacks from the Deepak Suchde courses
Namaste Deepak Baba, thank you very much for your kindness and hospitality. I have had a great time with the other volunteers and yourself and son and was very happy to do the work and learn new concepts that I hadn’t come across before. It has given me the ability to go home and try out Amrut Mitti for myself and suggest this way of farming to others.
I feel I have gained knowledge from being here and am looking forward to going home and testing it for myself and finding ways in which I could make it work in Wales. I am sure that when I one day start an eco community I will need to look more deeply into all of these concepts but I have gained a brief understanding that he only way I feel I can learn more is by doing it myself.
OLIVIA M REYNOLDS, WALES, UK
Namaste Baba. It had been a great experience spending two fruitful months at such divine place. I learnt about Natueco Science and loved its way of farming. Concepts are very deep researched and easy to understand. And the way Deepak Baba explains, it directly fits into the mind. Now I am convinced that Farming is the best profession in the world. It provides prosperity along with freedom, relationship, belongingness and many more benefits.
I am going to explain all these things to farmers in my village and I know that it will definitely improve their situation. Many of them do not know at all about organic farming so I would like to implement it in my nearby area. Whatever I have learnt in this memorable two months will be utilized properly only if reaches to the farmers.
At this age, the energy he has is wonderful and the work he is doing is amazing. I salute you for providing such good knowledge about farming to the country and even to the world.
I spent two months with full enjoyment and lived like I was at home. I would like to conclude by saying that I was lucky to have such great opportunity to learn about Natueco and I am thankful to Baba for converting this opportunity into a fruitful exercise.
Thank you, Take Care of Vatsal Bhaiya and yourself
