Homa Beekeeping

Rory Maher,
Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya, Poland
Spring has arrived at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya in Poland and it’s a joy to see our bees flying busily back and forth, returning to their hives laden with yellow pollen to feed their new emerging brood. Activity is high now as they rapidly build up strength after a long Polish winter where temperatures dropped to as low as -30 Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit).

The barely audible hum that the tight cluster of bees emits during those winter months gives way to a roaring song of communal joy as they energetically get to work on housekeeping, collecting pollen, nectar and rearing young. As the days warm up, there are few things more comforting to a beekeeper than that healthy buzz emanating from a hive.

Agnihotra and The Spiritual EcologistAs I sit still and look out across the gardens and fields, there is so much going on! The sights, the smells, the sounds, the fragrant flowers being warmed by the early morning heat of the sun, the bees busy with their daily activity, the singing of birds, the flapping of wings, the buzzing of a multitude of insects.

Beyond the fields, a forest of lush green trees is swaying in the breeze. So much life, so much dependence on one another, and everything stands in delicate balance - layer upon layer upon layer of mutuality and interconnectedness - the sun, the seasons, the rain. The wildlife, earthworms, microbes and fungi. Life, decay, rebirth.

Bhrugu Aranya International Eco-Village Community in Poland

When I was a school boy I remember the other boys and I were talking about what we would do if there was a nuclear war. Everyone else agreed that they would rather die than survive and try to live in the aftermath of such a war. I, on the other hand, felt strongly that I would want to survive and live. There has always been a strong sense of survival in me, and the belief that a better world can be created and will be created.

Mother Earth created herbs as a natural medicine chest for all beings that inhabit this planet. In ancient times, man was led by instinct and knew exactly which herbs to use.
