Shimla, Feb 17 (ANI): Farmers of Shimla took part in a century old traditional prayer session to save the world from global warming.
To deal with the impact of climate change in farming, the farmers are now turning to 'Homa Farming'.
The Himachal Organic Farming Forum (an NGO) is initiating the farmers to adopt traditional method of farming with the help of prayers.
"If we adopt the 'Homa Farming' method, it will help to revive our thousand years old culture. This type of situation would never arise again because this farming method works with the help of both solar and moon's energy. If we perform the Soma yagya (an old method of farming through prayers) for five days, then there is a possibility of receiving rain according to the beliefs of a German scientist," said Gopal Mehta, President, Himachal Organic Farming Forum.
The farmers at Naren village Panchayat in Shimla offered this century old method of prayers for a favourable environment on Sunday. Burning incense sticks at dawn and dusk is believed to help receive rainfall and purify the climate.
"Whatever negative vibrations are prevailing in the environment, it will get warded off with the help of 'Homa Farming'. With the help of this method, there would be positive vibrations in the environment, sufficient rainfall and the whole system will start functioning in a normal way. It would be a benefit for our lives," said P L Chauhan, a farmer.
Receding Himalayan glaciers could jeopardize water supplies for hundreds of millions of people and rising sea levels can become a menace to Mumbai and Kolkata, as well as Bangladesh, scientists warn. By Hemant Chauhan (ANI)
