Thus holistic agricultural, horticultural, cow rearing, related industries, health and fitness centers, holistic educational activities; can spring from the enlightenment integral to NAMASMARAN! Even the laws related to temples can emerge more accurate and benevolent; if concerned individuals practice NAMASMARAN.
