Plant Experiments

Effect of Gayatri Mantra, Classical Music and Pyramid on Plants, Seeds and Crop-Yield

To directly examine effects of Gayatri Mantra, music and pyramid, in the Manashakti Centre, experiments were mainly conducted on wheat saplings. Brief information about these experiments conducted from August to November 2002 follows:

(1) Effect of Gayatri Mantra on Plants - In 40 experiments of this type, it was found that ,compared with the control group, the plants in the Gayatri Mantra group had grown taller. The difference amounted from a minimum of 7.6% to a maximum of 64%. Also, in the Gayatri Mantra group, the proportion of 2-3 leaves appearing on a sapling grown from a single seed was much higher.

(2) Effect of Classical Music on Plants - The seeds and saplings of wheat were exposed to various ragas of classical music. Out of these, Raga Marwa was found to be associated with higher growth in the plants. In 33 such experiments it was found that, compared to control group, plants exposed to music showed growth higher by 4.4% to 59%. Also, the music-exposed plants were a brighter green and looked fresher.

(3) Effect of Pyramid on Plants - Plants from the experimental group were kept in a pyramid for some time daily. In 16 such experiments it was found that in the pyramid, seeds germinated faster and the growth also was better. The difference was from a minimum of 13.6% to a maximum of 47%.

Some longer-duration experiments like these were conducted on saplings of Tulsi, Sadaphuli, Jaswand (Hibiscus), Mogra, Rose, Brinjal, Chilli, Harbhara etc. It was found that Gayatri Mantra and Pyramid have a favourable effect on the plants - they thrive better and produce flowers and fruits faster.

Effect of prayer on the crop -An experience-
This experiment was conducted on the field of Shri Vitthal Dhondiba Kharabi (at and post Kharabiwadi, Chakan; Taluka Khed, Zilla Pune). Following soil analysis, wheat was planted on 14th Nov. 1976. For this, 50 Kg seed of Kalyan Sona variety was used. The field was divided into four equal parts of 10 guntha each. In the first part, ‘suphala’ and ‘urea’ (fertilizers) were given as per usual recommendations. In the second part, ‘suphala’ and ‘urea’ were given as per soil analysis results. In the third part, other fertilizers were use according to the farmer’s local practice. In the fourth part, however, in addition to the farmer’s fertilizer, prayer was used. A copper AUM was buried at this site. Farmers from around Chakan, who regularly attended Manashakti's weekly Bhagwat Geeta classes, sat near the crop in this part and recited Gayatri Mantra for 5-10 minutes every day. This was continued from planting to harvesting.

When the harvest was ready, crop from each part was separately harvested and the grain weighed. The local 10-guntha part yielded 221 Kg wheat; while the prayer-part yielded 288 Kg. Almost the same amount was obtained from the suphala and urea part. Thus, while the same amounts of fertilizer were used in the local and prayer parts, the prayer part yielded 67 Kg or 670Kg/hectare more. Because of these encouraging results, similar experiments will be conducted at more sites this year. -
