The books were published between 1977 and 2008. The entire work has been written in Hindi, in the classical Indian style in three sets: Darshan, Vaad and Shastra. Most of the important words used in the Darshan are tatsam. (Taken directly from Sanskrit). Work of translating the books into other languages is underway.
The literature has been written using the paribhasha* style or definition method where all important words/concepts have been defined anew. The books are not mutually exclusive of each other – since it is the same existence, reality they are addressing, only seem from different angles and at different ‘levels’. Knowledge itself is such that all of it can be expressed in a single line. The books only contain information. The Human being is ultimately the carrier of this knowledge.
The purpose of publishing the books is neither for publicity nor profit. The entire cost of publishing has been borne by Shree A Nagraj himself. It is hoped that you would use these books to have realization yourself and live with evidence of the same.
Only a human being who himself has the ‘understanding’ can explain these works. Attending a 7 day workshop is a good starting point.

– a Universal proposal for humankind – by A Nagraj
*Original in Hindi by Shri A Nagraj | English version by Shriram N | student | January 2017
Madhyasth Darshan (Coexistential thought) propounds universal humane constitution, education & organizational systems.
‘Madhyasth Darshan’ is free of mysticism/secrecy. It makes the actuality, reality and truth of the complete dimensions of a human being study-able & understandable. The expression of the power of realization, conveying of all-round resolution, and the art of living via the method of just-full behaviour, lawful occupation & perfect conduct is gain-able via Madhyasth Darshan. Along with this, it makes intellectual resolution, material prosperity, fearlessness (freedom from intrinsic human fears) and coexistence accessible via reasonable solutions, in a systematic manner.
According to ‘Madhyasth Darshan’, every unit (activity) in Existence is endowed towards progression whilst participating with the entirety. In the process of knowing, believing, recognizing and fulfilling this fact, Humans are in self-organization and participate with the entire organization.
The human is the seer of all the bhaavas or essence in Existence. The understanding of all the essences itself is awakening in the conscious self or jeevan which is in the form of evidencing in realization and resolution in thought. The meaning of all round resolution is the recognition of human and ecological relationships (matter, plants, animals) and the fulfillment of the values intrinsic in them.
Madhyasth Darshan is in 4 parts:
|Darsana||‘realistic-view’: Postulations from realization|
