The Meaning of Satavic
Satavic is a Sanskrit word which means and signifies anything that is pure, positive and beneficial. The term finds considerable usage in ayurvedic texts where body constitutions, foods, personalities, etc. have been divided into three classes – satavic (or satvik or sattvik, signifying positive), rajasic (neutral) and tamasic (negative). We named ourselves Satavic because we feel organic farming and our own mission, objectives and activities are just that. The Sanskit-connection is not coincidental – Indian agricultural tradition goes back many thousands of years and a number of ancient agricultural texts (such as Vrkshayurveda, literally meaning plant or tree ayurveda) were written in Sanskrit.
