Sadhaka Satyanatha blesses our newly restored 1981 Ford 4600, a 56-horsepower tractor.
Yes, we know the tractor looks like something only its mother could love, but just because some things are old does not mean that they were not well-build.
We did a lot of work restoring the bucket and getting it custom fit to the front-end loader. Now it runs just fine. In fact, it has a PTO feauture we wish we had on our newer machines.
This tracker is dedicated to mowing our noni field using this “Kickwheel Sidecutter” mower in front and a 7′ mower in the back (not yet attached.) It’s a very efficient setup for an orchard. The mower head runs out to the right of the tractor, allowing you to mow underneath the trees. The round mowing head has a rubber bumper, so that if it hits the trunk of a tree, it simple moves out of the way without doing any damage.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
