Background: Pranic agriculture (PA) involves the projection of prana to seeds, soil and plants to enhance plant growth. Plant growth and their characteristics were improved significantly by adopting the PA technique. 
Methods: Seeds of cluster beans and agriculture land were given PA treatment. Non-pranic treated seeds and land were referred to as the control group. Plant growth characteristics (Plant length, shoot length, root length, stem diameter, no of nodes and internode length), leaf characteristics (no of leaves, leaf length, leaf diameter), number of flowers and fruits were evaluated on 15, 30, 45 and 60 days. 
Result: For Pranic group, shoot length, root length, number of leaves, leaf length, leaf diameter, internode length, number of fruits enhanced considerably and the results were significant (p<.001) when compared to control. Thus, the PA treatment helps in enhancing the growth of cluster beans. Further studies are needed to find out the mechanism for this improved growth in pranic group. By practicing the PA technique, farmers could be benefitted by enhancing their crop growth.
