Since understanding reality, or having knowledge is the fundamental human need and the answer to all our problems, we begin with Education. Our understanding needs to change, peoples understanding needs to change, from being in animal-consciousness to being and living with human-consciousness. Hence, public education is where we start. The knowledge in one person (the teacher) is replicated in the other person (the student) via the method of study. Public Education, or Adult education is thus the first step in disseminating this understanding.
Having right understanding, an individual becomes intellectually resolved, and this leads to happiness, prosperity and an undivided human society and balance in nature – a Universal Order.
The Public Education program is also called the ‘Jeevan Vidya Yojana’ or Program. A person who has this understanding shares it in their family and in this manner, the understanding becomes available from one family to the other, and eventually, in the entire Human Society.
Introductory Workshops (Jeevan Vidya Shivir)
Introductory Workshops or 7 day ‘Parichay Shivirs’ also called ‘Jeevan Vidya Shivirs’ or ‘Coexistence Workshops’ are conducted thru ought the country at various places like Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kanpur, Raipur, Gujarat, Indore, etc for general dissemination of this proposal. The Introductory workshops are meant to communicate the need for Study and ‘Consciousness Development’ for every Individual to resolve the myriad problems all of us face, the world faces.
Over the past 15 years, about 50,000 people from all walks of life have attended workshops on Jeevan Vidya and many are now seriously studying it.
