History and Culture of Wheatgrass

"The primary form of food is grass. Man`s most primeval nutrient, that which nourished him for hundreds of years, until technological civilization  brought with its sprouts, and tender grasses that flourished all over the earth. When man dies, he goes to grass again, and so the tide of life, with everlasting repetition, in continuous cycles, moves endlessly on and upward, and in more senses than one, all flesh is grass. “

      By Edmond Bordeaux Szekely

Edmond Bordeaux Szekely is a well known translator and philologist . He was a professor of Sanskrit, Aramaic, Greek and Latin and spoke ten modern languages. He spent half of the 1920`s  secluded in the secret archives of the Vatican. As a result he translated the Aramaic Scrolls known today as the Essene Gospels. In his translation he found that Jesus was devoted to the grass .

“Touch then the blades of grass and feel the angel of power enter the tips of your fingers, flow upwards through 

your body, and shake you till you tremble with wonder and awe

 - Extract from the Essene Gospel of Peace Book 1V

Grass is all around us, it grows on every continent it even grows in between the cracks of cemented cities. We jog on it, lay on it, walk on it, picnic on it, tender to its need in our back gardens yet somehow we have overlooked that we can eat it. There are over 9,000 known species of the grass or grain.

The Fruit of Grass is Grain. Grains are a concentrated source of Carbohydrates, B Vitamins, Fatty Acids, Minerals, Fibre and Protein. Every time you plant a grain you will grow grass.  Wheat, Rye, Corn, Rice, Oats, Barley, Sorghum, Millet, Spelt and kamut all make grass. Even the sugar cane plant in the tropics and the Bamboos in the far east are part of the same family.

Wheatgrass contain raw chlorophyll.Chlorophyll is condensed sunlight. Since we are light beings, spirit and soul inside solid bodies, the light force vibrates through the physical body. That’s the energy you feel. That`s why wheatgrass is a spiritual food. It nourishes you on the spiritual level as well as the physical  level”


 Grasses are the primary source of food for domestic and wild gazing animals. Animals have long known which type of grass is best to eat. Farmers have noticed that the young grasses of spring would produce the highest quality of milk butter and cheese. Animals don't know what vitamins are they just use their instinct.
