"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

An Abode of Learning and Experiential Wisdom

Poojya Swamiji explains it thus :

“This Ashram is actually a Brahmavidya abode. Right from the beginning I did not have any idea of establishing an institution. If I were having an idea, I would have proceeded in a different manner. To establish an institution means to think constantly about the institution and to recruit or allow people to come and join us with a view to do institutional work. That would have been a little different. It is based primarily on man power, not seeking.

Whoever has got the aptitude to work in an institution and take the institution’s ideals to the people by way of a suitable propaganda, I think it will be different. Whereas I only had one thought in my mind. In the same manner I happened to see my Gurudev and I liked him, I sought deeksha from him. After getting the deeksha for me deeksha and my Guru were everything. I did not think of anything else. It is that deeksha and the sādhana I did very fervently that you can say made me the way I was and I am.

Knowledge Dissemination

Jayanti_Day_2011

In Swamiji's words 'the success of education and educational thinking is in fulfilling the great task of national integration'

There is widespread misunderstanding that spiritual pursuit is meant only for the old and the recluse. The vast treasure-trove of inner resources that can be harnessed by any one to achieve excellence in any walk of life, remains unnoticed due to sheer ignorance. Did not Krishna invoke the Upanishadic wisdom in the war field of Kurukshetra to enable Arjuna fight the righteous war successfully? Far from taking man away from the world, the pursuit of the "Subject Wisdom" makes him adept in whatever field he is involved.

Sannyaasa is wrongly regarded as a mystic wandering life. In truth, Sannyaasa stands for exclusive dedication  to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge. Sannyaasins in our land were like moving universities - disseminating spiritual and value education throughout the country. They did it out of their urge to work for the welfare of the world. The mightiest educative literature like Ramayana and Mahabharata, which forged the cultural backbone of the entire country, came from Sannyaasins and Ascetics.

Swamiji felt that the abode of a Sannyaasin - an Ashram - must verily be a centre of learning. Its mission should be to expose people to their own Subject dimension and its unlimited potential. That would promote better understanding of the science of life and ensure for the society long-term prosperity and advancement. This would set right the alarming aberration caused by the inadequate modern education system and over-indulgent materialism.
