On May 11, Arumuganathaswami, Shanmuganathaswami and task forcer Gajanan attended the Sustainable Agriculture Skill Panel Forum being sponsored by various government agencies including the University of Hawaii and the Department of Agriculture. One objective was to identify necessary skills needed to advance agriculture on the island that are presently lacking and to make concrete proposals as to how to get people trained in those skills. It was an enjoyable and thoughtful day.
So very true.We have to understand that it is Agriculture that sustains us and not just tourism as many Islanders of other islands in the world seem to think. It is hard work but very necessary, beneficial and rewarding work which takes patience and sacrifice some times. In our Island( St Lucia) people need exactly that kind of motivation as it is encouraging to know what other else where are doing.Jai Ganesa.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
