Quote by Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

      "Our farm projects are an extremely important part of our movement. We must become self-sufficient by growing
      our own grains and producing our own milk, then there will be no question of poverty. So develop these farm com-
      munities as far as possible. They should be developed as an ideal society depending on natural products not indus-
      try. Industry has simply created godlessness, because they think they can manufacture everything that they need.

      Our Bhagavad-gita philosophy explains that men and animals must have food in order to maintain their bodies. And
      the production of food is dependent on the rain and the rain of course is dependent on chanting Hare Krsna. There-
      fore let everyone chant Hare Krsna, eat nicely and keep their bodies fit and healthy. This is ideal life style. We do not
      condemn  modern  civilization  but  we  don't  like  to  get  it  at  the  cost  of  God  Consciousness,  that  is  suicide."
      — Letter to Rupanuga, 18 December, 1974
