ORGANIC INDIA was formed in the 1990's by a small group of people from around the world who met in Lucknow, a town in northern India. They had traveled to meet H.W.L. Poonja, the spiritual teacher fondly known as "Papaji." Drawn by the search for truth and self-realization, they came to hear Papaji’s simple teachings: "Keep Quiet. The eternal truth exists within you. Do not entertain a single thought and the truth will reveal itself to itself."

Inspired by Papaji's lifetime of service, this group had a vision to forge a path, using the global marketplace as a tool to change the face of agriculture in northern India. Their idea was simple: establish a sustainable business model to support the livelihood of thousands of marginalized farmers in India by providing training and education, enabling self-sufficiency and skills that could be passed on to future generations.

This idea became a movement as organic and biodynamic farming methods were developed and practiced. The founders’ mission to offer safe and effective herbal products to the world is the driving force behind an organic revolution that started with ORGANIC INDIA and is now taking root all across India.
