Farming for supporting yourself

    Posted on October 16, 2016



Русский перевод

If you open farm for financial help, then it will not be successful. You should take to farming for supporting yourself, that's all. Grow your own food. Grow your own cloth. There is no need of financial help from outside. You get your food grains sufficiently — rice, dal, wheat, vegetables, milk, sugar. Bas. You get everything. From these five, six items you should be economically free. That you have to do, not for trade to get money. Then it will be failure. Grow food first of all to feed yourself sumptuously. You must get strength, and that is needed. But not for trade.

Srila Prabhupada — October 28, 1975, Nairobi
