Rice(Food) is available from grains. There is no grain if it is not cultivated. Therefore, essentially we must practice agriculture on priority. In this shloka, sage Parashara emphasized the importance and potentiality of agriculture for our survival. Insight into the history of Indian Agriculture, its growth and development will help us in realizing the Indian agricultural heritage. Agricultural knowledge dissemination began with the rise of agriculture. With the invention of wheel, plough, and irrigation around 3000BC, agriculture development got new momentum. During the periods of Harappa and Mohenjadaro civilization skills to cultivate many grains were evolved which is yet another milestone in the history of agriculture. Then the systematic documentation and dissemination of agricultural knowledge was initiated from the beginning of Veda period. Agriculture in Pre- independence period, came out of the Indian framework and took a different path from culture to industry. The same is being continued after independence. Growth of population, successive droughts, food shortage and increasing starvation and deaths subsequently led to green revolution. High yield and high income became our main target of today's agriculture. As we begin to understand the implications of this agriculture, the good aspects of our ancient agriculture began to emerge. Over the last two decades, diverse school of thoughts emerged, such as organic farming, natural farming, sustainable agriculture, biodynamic agriculture, parma-culture, etc. The desirable feature of our Indian agriculture should be an appropriate blend of all good, eco-friendly concepts from our traditional knowledge with that of modern new innovations. The British laid the foundation for today's agricultural education. In the process of designing the agriculture education, they did not give due considerations to Indian agriculture wisdom, knowledge and cultural heritage. It is ironical that even after independence we did not refer to our traditional agriculture or our knowledge base of agriculture.Agriculture is important because it provides food which is essential for our existence. If we enrich agriculture, it is as good as enriching our life, on the contrary if we spoil agriculture, our living system is spoiled. Therefore, if we live with agriculture our life will be healthier, our soils are enriched, in turn our socio-cultural values will be enriched. That is the essence of life. Builders of Indian traditional agriculture system enriched agriculture with culture. Also they documented their wisdom in our literature. This conference aims to see these practices and documentation in the present context. This is also one of the mission of Gurukula education system. Hence a National Symposium is organized with the aim of bringing together the ideas of agricultural science in the ancient literature of India and present developments in the field of agriculture and to communicate Indian agricultural heritage to the rest of the world on a strong scientific footing.

Objectives

Prabodhini Gurukula

Vision of the Indian education system is to build a healthy society. Prabodhini Gurukula has been working for the past two decades on the bank of sacred Tunga river at Hariharpur, near Sringeri to fulfill the dreams of Indian education system.

Twelve years of education at Gurukula is being offered in two stages. The first level of Adhisheela education is for five years. At this stage, the school curriculum education will be given in addition to the five-pronged education (panchamukishikshana) called Veda- Science-Yoga-Agriculture and the Art. In the second phase of the seven years of Adhipragna education aims to build specialist in any one field of panchamukishikshana. Gurukula is open and free for all the sections of our society without any discrimination. Gurukula is nurtured by the society.

In Indian culture, 48 represent one mandala i.e. full circle or completion of one cycle. Launched in 1995, Prabodhini Gurukula completed Ardhamandal and on this occasion of Ardhamandalothsava year round programmes are planned and organized in the field of Veda, Science, Yoga and Agriculture. Seminars, conferences, socio-cultural events, teacher's orientation, women and youth interactions are being organized apart from introducing the importance of Gurukula education by bringing together the whole of the society at key points across the country.
