During her workshop, Didi Ananda Prama gave practical tips on developing a Master Unit. These included inspiring local skilled workers to become involved, visiting models (eg. Findhorn in Scotland ), researching local government
requirements/regulations and writing grants. She advised to have a vision, proposal and people. Put your energy into people instead a lot of money into buildings. Be about sadhana, service and sacrifice. Utilize all strengths and weaknesses talents and skills to build up the people by doing service with love. Network with other groups, offer yoga practices, be a nurturer, love the people and teach meditation. On MU land, one can usually start growing fresh organic foods that you can be served and shared with visitors and workers. So plant a small organic kitchen or green garden utilizing all the space efficiently. Utilize complementary planting techniques, etc. Garden means life – plant slow and fast growing trees – as outlined in the book Ideal Farming by Shrii P.R. Sarkar. Research your local food needs, growing conditions, climate, soils. Think “Agricultural Products” rather than just selling raw produce for maximizing income. Also support or start buyers or sellers cooperatives.
