The New Shape of Education

Prioritising happiness

Modern schools somewhat sadly have become institutions repeated for turning out children equipped with the skills that may or may not suit some adventure working in industry or the marketplace. There are high rates of dropouts and the most successful students adapt to what may be well called borderline misery.

The most successful school graduates of those who have survived despite being educated and have the natural intelligence to become successful at some endeavour with success being defined as how much money one has.

There seems little doubt that the modern education system which is still something of an experiment has little concern for any sense of happiness and well-being, the focus is on

Education Fails

When fictions and beliefs are taught as truths

Most parents want their children to become successful and happy in life, most often with more emphasis on success because they believe that success is the key to happiness. Success as in money is the flag of aspiration and meaning in life that supersedes almost everything else and children today are being driven en-mass towards this ill-defined goal.

Success is a great many things and every individual develops their own interpretation. While the most basic success is to grow into life, reproduce and see one’s children grow into life to the point where one can experience grandchildren represents the greatest universal success because it is biological and represents the natural continuation of

Learning massage

Bringing out the healer in you

As massage is instinctive, everyone has some basic talent to begin with including hands to touch and a level of sensitivity. But training provides greater context and methodology; this is the why, when and how to achieve specific results.

If you are contemplating learning massage to be of service to others, options are to: have some massages yourself from different therapists to discover what benefits you or what you like the most, and you can talk to therapists about their training and experience. They may give you references.

For many, the idea of learning massage is a romantic idea but it’s not, massage calls for a grounding in reality and setting aside any prudishness

Revising the Official Hindu History

An urgent need for the well-being of ALL nations

Most people consider that it’s important to know one’s past and to know one’s ancestry because that knowledge provides insights into one’s nature from which we can more clearly determine our reason for being and place in the universe.

Without knowing one’s history, any individual is left in a kind of vacuum, a state of limbo of not knowing. In our recent past the archaeological and historical explorers conjectured that modern humans developed independently in different regions. The Africans in Africa, the Asians in Asia and the Europeans in Europe as independent human species that next giving rise to the variety of peoples in the world today.

This theory was then

Sex Education

One of the many failures of modern civilisation

For most of us, our parents lives were less than perfect. Like all children, at some point during those formative years, the opposite sex became attractive giving rise to sexual feelings without necessarily having any intellectual appreciation of what was happening.

The transition from childhood through adolescence can be a biochemical nightmare for a great many children. They have hormones flowing through their bodies and sometimes uncontrollable urges are so strong that they have to quickly find a private space to relieve themselves through masturbation or some other activity that relieves the pressure of that energy building up inside of them.

As our parents left us to navigate sexuality alone, most parents

Another chapter in “education dumbing people down”

When the Europeans came to the knowledge of India and it’s millions of inhabitants, life in India was very sophisticated. When the British East India Company arrived to exploit India in the 1600s, there was a 95% literacy rate across the Indian subcontinent. The British were so impressed they exported and adapted the Indian education system to suit their own country and transform the British working classes by providing universal education.

By this time, concepts in advanced mathematics and science had already arrived in Europe and the Europeans quickly claimed these ideas as their own, a form of plagiarism. Hindu knowledge gave rise to the scientific and technological advancement in the Western

Saving India – Saving the world

In researching not only Indian history but the history of the world it seems we have checked enough boxes and this time that some thought was given to compiling all this information with references in a logical and meaningful manner then making approaches to the various authorities around the world to begin the correcting of school textbooks.

The narrative may likely proceed to point out the correlation between the very ancient occupation of India and the similarities with Africa of 1.3 million years ago, the before and after Mount Tober incident and the evidence of simple agriculture originating in India followed by the spread of civilisation, knowledge and technology from India around the globe.

Nalanda in Bihar

Most Indians today are well aware of the two famous ancient universities of India which also are one of the oldest universities in the world – Takshashila University (Taxila) and Nalanda.

And with evolving times, a large number of centres of learning were established across ancient India of which Takshashila and Nalanda are the most famous ones known today. Below is a list of major

English Education Fails India

A consequence of colonialism

It is no secret why the British replaced the indigenous education system and Sanskrit gurukuls with English education. They wanted to create a class of Indians who thought like the British and in this way weaken India. Sanskrit culture and Vedic knowledge were the backbone of Indians. This backbone had to be broken. English medium education did it to a great extent. Indians were cut off from their precious tradition, and they had to study in a completely foreign language, as if this was an easy thing to do. Somehow, the children of the tiny elite managed. They were motivated to make it into colonial government jobs and English was the only gateway. Naturally, these westernised

Osho on Sex Ed for Kids

Tell it the way it is

Periodically in the media this week, discussions about sex education for children re-emerge. Those who consider themselves enlightened want to tell kids the facts of life as they really are while the moral opposition wants kids to remain forever in ignorance until that time comes when they fumble in the dark and are left suffering various forms of anxiety.

Statistics, these prove that children who are well educated about sex are more likely to put off sex until they are older and practice safe sex, they are also much less likely to get pregnant so it seems really strange that the moralists want to raise their kids in ignorance and expose them to unwanted
