Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh): Yogic farming, an ancient Indian farming concept and tradition, researched and evolved by the Brahma Kumaris at Mount Abu, was deliberated upon at a seminar during a farmers’ Mela.

BK Sarala, Chairperson of the Agriculture and Rural Development Wing of the Rajayoga Education and Research and Foundation, emphasised the need for strengthening the farming sector by empowering cultivators through spirituality.
