Agriculturists are (as it were) the linch-pin of the world for they support all other workers who cannot till the soil.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
God Siva created us. He created the Earth and all things upon it, animate and inanimate. He created time and gravity, the vast spaces and the uncounted stars. He created night and day, joy and sorrow, love and hate, birth and death.
—Gurudeva
