Pulses, also known as grain legumes, include dry beans, dry peas, chickpeas, and lentils. They are high in protein, fibre, and various vitamins, provide amino acids, and are hearty crops.

Pulse crops are one of the most sustainable crops a farmer can grow. They also contribute to soil quality by fixing nitrogen in the soil.

The Year of Pulses marks the beginning of a bold new global agenda for Sustainable Development with 17 Goals aiming to end poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change over the next 15 years. Achievement of these Goals depends on the will and support of people of goodwill in every part of the world.

Meditation on the Year of Pulses can help to create an environment of thought which fosters right relations between humanity and the plant kingdom as well as a popular will to implement Sustainable Development Goal 2 (End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture)  by 2030.  


Sit comfortably, alert and with the spine erect. Breathe quietly and regularly. Raise your consciousness to the centre between the eyebrows and without strain hold this focus.
