Sustainability with Hemp

Controversial, yet very hot topic on use of hemp or cannabis (marihuana) …was in the spotlight  of today’s interview with Viki Vaurara and Deblina Chowdry. Fighting with his own illness,  Vicki got across with medicinal properties of cannabis, and amazed by results he dive into the topic. In 2014 The Great Legalization Movement was established, and along with others Viki also initiated Indian Hemp Research Institute which is in process to be supported by Indian government. However both, Deblina and Viki do see sustainability of the country in the use of industrial hemp which versatility could replace many materials , from our homes, clothing, food, to bio plastic, and fuel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
Hemp or industrial hemp (from Old English
hænep) typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.[6] Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content

Letters on Yoga

This reading consists of excerpts from Sri Aurobindo’s Letters on Yoga Volume I : Section Four Reason, Science and Yoga, pages 157 – 162.

Sri Aurobindo explains that intellect will not bring one to the Supreme and all that is beyond the mind.

It isn’t by thinking but by an entire change of consciousness that one can pass from ignorance into knowledge . . .

On the integral way to the truth he says: “…..I have said that the idea of the supermind was already in existence from ancient times. there was in India and elsewhere the attempt to reach it by rising to it; but what was missed was the way to make it integral for the life and to bring it down for transformation of the whole nature, even of the physical nature..”

Swadharma #3, Pt.2

After tea break presentation continues…..
17 young participants from different parts of India participated in Swadharma #3, and following program is heartful presentation of each of them. What they have discovered in 5 weeks of intensive research, journey which connected their inner selves to outer reality, and their true potentials. Among all interesting presentations poems were recited, and song sung.

The Swadharma program is a response to the call for an education for our times. It offers young seekers – age 18 to 28 – the opportunity to embark on a transformative learning adventure with the goal of self-discovery. The program is based on the idea that helping young people discover who they are and what brings them alive is not only meaningful at an individual level, but also essential for building a socially just, environmentally sustainable and consciously awakened future.
