cows, take milk, produce vegetables, food grains, and chant Hare Krsna.
That's all. This is our philosophy. Make your life successful. By becoming
Krsna conscious, you become free from al these troubles of material
condition. This is our education."

paperback design. The tasty and insightful articles of author - His
Holiness Bhakti Raghava Swami draws one to deep topics such as Dharma,
Tehnology, Development, Women, Traditional Education, Food, Astrology,
Health and Guiding Principles of Rural Communities of Villages.
The central theme of the book reflected through the main essay titled -
"Village Life - Our Philosophy, Our Education and Our Lifestyle" draw one
attention towards the importance of village living.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
"The basis of 'Simple Living and High Thinking', the norm for civilized
human beings, lies in the acceptance of village life centered on the
performance of sacrifice, yajna, which is born of prescribed duties as
delineated in the scientific system of varnas and asramas. Such a social
system, being very intimately connected with land, cows and higher
consciousness, namely Krsna consiousness, is the most perfect and holistic
way to live. When human society, due to neglect, bad leadership or
misfortune, all based on lust, anger, greed, illusion, madness and envy,
deviates from this established norm, a norm scientifically designed and
created by the highest of authorities, Lord Krsna Himself, a system meant to
uphold, protect and foster the universal principles of dharma or
religiosity, we should know for certain that only chaos will prevail and
immense sufferring must follow".
