Abstract

Plants are known to have sense and can respond to touch, electric and magnetic field. The present study was designed on the sponge gourd (Luffa cylindrica) and bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) seeds with respect to biofield energy treatment. The seeds of each crop were divided into two groups, one was kept control, while the other group was subjected to Mr. Trivedi’ biofield energy treatment. The variabilities in growth contributing parameters were studied and compared with their control. To study the genetic variability after biofield energy treatment, both the seeds were analyzed for DNA fingerprinting using RAPD method. After germination, the plants of sponge gourd were reported to have uniform colored leaves and strong stem. The leaves and fruits of sponge gourd showed no infection, with anti-gravity properties during early stage of fruiting as compared with the control group. Similarly, treated bitter gourd showed uniform color of leaves, strong stem, with disease free fruits in biofield treated seeds as compared with the control. The true polymorphism (%) observed between control and treated samples of sponge and bottle gourd seed sample was an average value of 7.8% and 66% respectively. In conclusion, Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment has the ability to alter the plant growth rate that may by interacting with plant genome, which resulted in high yield of crops.

Conclusion

Biofield energy treatment on the sponge and bitter gourd was reported with improved growth characteristics such as healthy leaves, fruits, and control from pest attack as compared to their respective control. Biofield treated sponge plants were strong, thin leaves, and uniform color, which suggested higher immunity of plant as compared with the control. Further, the fruits of sponge gourd showed anti-gravity property at an early stage, along with strong stem as compared with the control plants. However, biofield treated bitter gourd showed the uniform color of leaves, strong stem, with disease free fruits. It is assumed that biofield treatment might affect the polarization of seeds, and resulted in altered dipole interaction between water and seed during germination. The percentage of true polymorphism observed between control and treated samples of sponge and bottle gourd seed sample was an average value of 7.8% and 66%, respectively. Overall, study results suggested that Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment has the capability to alter the genetic character of plants, which might be useful in terms of overall crop productivity.
