About our Locations

Over the past 25 years, a number of people from different backgrounds have come in touch with Madhyasth Darshan  and are sincerely involved in understanding, living and sharing this work.  A few people have come together at various places to establish ‘dedicated locations’ :

  1. Introduction Centers: For the introduction to ‘jeevan vidya’ & its concepts
  2. Study Locations: For formal study of the literature, practice in living & related research work.

These locations are self-funded and people at these places look after their own needs via various means including agriculture, dairy and production.

There is no central structure, funding, membership or hierarchies. Anyone is free to start their own location.

 

Basis for listing a ‘recommended center’

Anyone that came in touch with (late) Shri A.Nagraj and/or Madhyasth Darshan literature is free to ‘teach’ or start a ‘center’ Institution, etc using the Madhyasth Darshan tag. The ‘centers’ or locations given below broadly have certain characteristics in line with Madhyasth Darshan. Some individuals/institution use the concepts gleaned from ‘Jeevan Vidya, Madhyasth Darshan’, under various other names (ex: ‘transformation’, ‘human values’, ”value education’, ‘happiness’, etc), but may not adequately cover the darshans study concepts or its fundamental tenets. These, serve ‘preparatory introductory’ requirements prior to the darshan. These hence do not find mention below.

Rarely, an existing center may be omitted from the ‘recommended list’ since they are found to not be having some or all the aforementioned characteristics or because the activities there have ceased.  For instance, MCVK Indore मानव चेतना विकास केंद्र, इंदौर as of 17th August 2020 until further change.

 

How ‘we’ Function

Jeevan Vidya, Madhyasth Darshan currently does not have a ‘central committee’ of any kind and follows a broad, decentralized model that is mutually cooperative. Individuals /Families living at a location are responsible for their own decisions. They are not ‘monitored’ by any ‘outside group’. Individuals & Families from across the Country have taken up certain responsibilities of their own accord (such as website, sms, printing, distribution, sammelan, textbooks, research work, translations etc) & carry them out in consultation with other friends. Decisions for the content on this site are taken by those mentioned here.

Those that have been with this darshan since a long time periodically come together as various assemblies (सभा)  & share their common concerns in various platforms/groups. The discussions/ decisions in such ‘sabhas’ are reflections of the individual understanding (समझ), perspectives (दृष्टि) & discrimination (विवेक) of its participants.

Members thus join the activities /groups they agree with or are interested in and this is how ‘things get done’.

The final proposed method of working is Family based Village Organization (परिवार मूलक ग्राम स्वराज्य व्यवस्था) in which assembly-committees or ‘sabhas’ consist of awakened individuals (जागृत सभा). Till such time, each location/center functions based on its understanding & practice which are a reflection of its inhabitants, which are constantly evolving.

People from these locations meet periodically to share their individual and collective progress at goshtis and the rashtriya sammelan (national confluence).

All this put together is ‘we’.

Importance of “Stable Reference” for the student

We recommend that the serious student keep the Original Works of Shri A.Nagraj as the reference baseline for their study. Any ‘center’ or location exists to only facilitate a student/aspirants study and provide a space for them to learn & practice. It thus becomes imperative to choose the ‘appropriate person & place‘ to further one’s study.

An in-person survey of the locations below is highly recommended before one finalizes a place to pursue ones study or stay. It is important to keep in mind the Method of Study (अध्ययन प्रक्रिया).

This is so until such time that a few of us do not become full realized (in developed consciousness) ourselves. एक से अधिक मानव जागृत हुए पर्यंत श्री ए.नागराजजी द्वारा लिखित मध्यस्थ दर्शन ही आधार रहेगा | जागृति के पश्चात मानव स्वयं आधार, धारक वाहक रहेगा | इसमें भी लिखित दर्शन साथ रहेगा ही |
