This is an old revision of the document!

  • A life of small-scale farming may appear to be primitive, but in living such a life it becomes possible to contemplate the Great Way (the path of spiritual awareness which involves attentiveness to and care for the ordinary activities of daily life). He believes that if ones fathoms deeply in one's own neighboorhoud and the everyday world in which he lives, the greatest of worlds will be revealed. To be here in a small field, in full possession of the freedom and plenitude of each day, every day - this must have been the original way of agriculture.
  • Natural farming arises of itself when unity exists between man and nature. It conformes to nature as it is, and to the mind as it is. It proceeds from the conviction that if the individual tempararily abandons human will and so allows himself to be guided by nature, nature responds by providing everything.
  • The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings
  • What is the natural pattern, was always in his mind
