Philosophy & Ideology

The true end of education is not the acquisition of information or technical skills though they are very vital in modern society. Information is not knowledge nor is knowledge-wisdom. Education must give a basic meaning to personality and existence and equip us with the power to overcome spiritual inertia and foster spiritual sensitivity.

Along with Academic excellence, children must also be trained in a way that they may achieve ideally Integrated development of their personality on all the five planes- PHYSICAL, VITAL, EMOTIONAL, INTELLECTUAL, SPIRITUAL.

By ennobling their practical lives, they would diffuse the light of their knowledge to the society for achievement of Unfailing Health, Vibrant Vitality, Abiding Happiness, Profound Knowledge and Universal Love with Unlimited Prosperity. Members of such a society will have an enlightened intellect and would be able to take quick and firm decisions without fear or favor in all walks of life.

Inexorable laws govern the world we live in. Violation of these laws is attended by suffering on all the five planes of human personality:-on the physical by disease, on the vital by fatigue, on the emotional by worry, on the intellectual by fear and on the spiritual plane by duality and pangs of separation from kith and kin. Sin and suffering go together, people try to get rid of suffering without giving up sin. On the other hand obedience of the laws is rewarded on all the five planes as under.
a. Physical Plane - Unfailing Health
b. Vital Plane - Vibrant Energy
c. Emotional Plane - Abiding Happiness
d. Intellectual Plane - Profound Knowledge
e. Spiritual Plane - Universal Love

It is a sin to violate the fundamental law of GIVE and TAKE. Since birth, man receives air, light, water, soil, and productivity, etc, freely from Nature. However we never think of repaying this debt. As a punishment of this selfishness, we are afflicted with disease worry and fear in one form or the other. To repay the debt we must devote a part of our time and energy in selfless service of society without expecting anything in return.

Another basic law of Nature is that of ACTION & REACTION, which, if applied to our everyday life works. If we give happiness to others it will surely come back to us. If we want to banish suffering we must court it instead of trying to push it away. We court suffering by reducing the intake of food and the food thus saved is given away to satisfy the hunger of someone not connected to us. Also, we set apart one-tenth of our income from all sources, [deducted at the source] and spend it unselfishly in the service of God.

Manas Sthali strives to create such an atmosphere that will help build a strong foundation in students- for a bright future and a happier society.
