Compassionate Agriculture

In Bhutan they do not have a word for Organic Agriculture. The word Organic is fraught with so many ills in the area, so many scandals are happening around East Asia that the practice has started to have almost a bad name. Therefore, to describe the concept to the Bhutanese people it is simply called Buddhist Agriculture.
