Reflections on vital education

Dr. Monika Nanda


The vital is a crucial aspect of the being and usually governs all our actions, which in turn shape our character and thus, our destiny. Strengthening the vital should be an important aspect of a child’s education. Being caught up in the development of the mental faculty, this aspect of vital education has not traditionally been incorporated in children’s education. This article tries to bring to the forefront some of the practical ways in which we can work on the vital in children. It is an attempt to help parents and caregivers understand the vital in a simpler way. Read more...

Artificial Intelligence

Lopa Mukherjee

This article questions whether Artificial Intelligence is a boon or a curse. Like other scientific discoveries that have made life a little easier but have added social and other problems by the overuse of their gifts, will this new fad in technology also follow the same fate?

Thoughts, Feelings, Perceptions — Wave or Particle?

Dr. Monica Gulati

Some of us may be aware of the wave-particle duality through quantum physics. A sub-atomic particle’s behaviour is rather unpredictable.

Researchers have so far studied that whether it will behave like a particle or wave is influenced very much by who’s looking at them, who’s observing. The same appears quite true at the level of our thoughts, feelings, emotions, sense-perceptions. Read more...

James Anderson

To be integrated is to be centred round what makes us whole. The integral approach addresses the whole without losing mastery over every detail. It is our consciousness, dynamised by the psychic being, which facilitates this process. This necessitates round-the-clock practice and inner work. Read more...

On Fantasy and Reality

Raag Yadava

This piece is a short reflection on taking the mystic core of religion seriously. With rational empiricism on one side and conventional modes of worship on the other, the claim of mysticism is often reduced to imagination or fantasy, or dismissed as a biologically constructed experience. It is rather a real and concrete, yet non-material, expression of our inmost being, in both its individual and collective manifestations, and one that we must work to discover for the new creation to be born tomorrow out of today’s tumult.
