The books were published between 1977 and 2008. The entire work has been written in Hindi, and the core books published in about 13 volumes, in the classical Indian style in three sets: Darshan, Vaada and Shastra. (Direct Insight > Dialectics> Code of Conduct)
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 ‘definitions’ connect the ‘word’ with ‘meaning’ in reality.
The books are not mutually exclusive of each other – since it is the same existence, reality they are addressing, only seen in different dimensions of cognition & different ‘aspects’ of living.
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 truly 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.

Brief of the Basic-Books
Given below is a brief description of the type of the book (darshan > vaad> shastra), a brief of the contents in each book. The books only contain information. The Human being is ultimately the carrier of this knowledge.
Darshan or ‘Philosophy’:
-Existential postulations based on Realization & Insights
Definition of’ Darsana’: Activity by the seer via his/her vision (sight) for understanding the scene as-it-is, and its expression, communication and publishing.
#This set of books focus on the realization and insights achieved of reality. The meaning of the word ‘Darshan’ means direct ’seeing reality as-it-is’ or ‘sight’ or ‘realistic-view’ . In order to have realistic-view we need to have the seer, the vision and the seen. (darshan needs drishta, drishti and drishya). The Darsanas are in 4 parts:
philosophy of human-behavior (vyawhar):
philosophy of human-action (karma):
philosophy of human-realization (anubhava)
philosophy of human-practice (abhyasa)
Vaada or ‘Ism:
– Dialectic, expansion in logic, discussion, supporting arguments.
Definition of Vaada: Clear propounding of Actuality, Reality & Truth.
# the vaada’s or ‘isms are for mutual-discussion; or the expansion of knowledge gained via ‘darsana’ at the level of thought. They contain logic and reasons in support of the postulation of realities expounded in the darsana’s. They include mutual-discussion between peoples. The ‘isms are:
Materialism – resolution based,
Spiritualism – Realization based,
Humanism – Behavior based:
Shaastra: or Codes
-Humane code of conduct
Definition of Shaastra: Inspiration for self-discipline, Activity of transmission capable of ensuring assimilation of restraint
# translators notes: ‘shaastra’ denotes code-of-conduct or ‘discipline’. i.e. the darsana’s cover the understanding of reality, the vaad or ‘isms cover the expansion & explanation of what was understood at the level of thought – i.e. such ‘knowledge’ coming in thought, and this thought then comes in living, in the form of a self-determined ‘code-of-conduct, based on what was understood/known.
Sociology – behavioral:
Psychology – consciousness based:
Samvidhan: Human Constitution:
– in the form of humane code of ethics
Definition of Constitution: Aphorisms and explanation of Law frameworksfor the purpose of evidence of perfection in tradition. Law frameworks, Norms, Justice, Conduct; Awakened Human, Fundamental Rights, Orderliness (Human Systems).
#The Constitution provides the overall basis& law-frameworks for Human Society and its existential basis on Actuality, Reality & Truth. This is a ‘Universal Human Constitution’
‘Proof ‘or ‘evidence’ (pramana) is thus of:
via living according to humane psychology, sociology & economics – respectively.
*Paribhasha means definitions. Although the words used in these books and on this site may seem familiar, they have different meanings than which is currently associated with them. The definitions, or paribhasha – link the words to meanings in reality – entities in reality are as meanings, and on reading the words with the definitions (paribhasha ), and deploying our ability for imagination, it becomes possible to understand the same meanings ourselves. I.e. These words are pointers to meanings in reality, which can be studied, understood (‘seen‘) and ‘realized’ by a human being, in himself.
It is a requirement that the literature be studied with the accompanying definitions or paribhasha.
