A Contextual Definition of Education

We define Education as the art and science of Creating/Sustaining/ Transmitting Spiritual,Social, Intellectual or Physical assets of a generation to its peers or to the next.

Education, Knowledge & Skills :

The First Principles

• Sensations which are meaningful is Data • Data that is Relevant is Information • Self Guiding Principle in Information is
Knowledge • Knowing what to do, whether it is done and what to do if it is not is Know-how Know-how required in Steering any SSIP *Goal of a person’s life is called Skill Universe is the source of All Knowledge

Two Types of Knowledge and Skill
• That which is Imparted through
Mind • That which is Imparted to Mind

• Occidental learning systems focus on the

first • Traditional Oriental Systems used to Focus on Both earlier .Now ?

Knowledge is in Consciousness

• Knowledge resides in Consciousness • Amount of Orientation/Knowledge/ • Talent/Skill can be Measured as a % of
Goal Attainment against Plan of an individual • 1)Awareness of Goal,2)Awareness of Actions for the Goals and 3)Awareness of Corrections in action to attain the Goal together constitutes Know-how • Education Should improve Know-How for

A Contextual Definition of Consciousness

• A pattern (of Energy )flow that can alter
itself is consciousness • The illusory matrix on which the pattern change happens is mind • This leads to two Concepts of minds a) The Human mind that we are all familiar b)The Universal Mind as substrate of the Scientific Laws behind the Material Universe with its complex forms of interaction ,control and evolution (see

Conscious Universe-A Question

• Universe itself has a self controlling pattern • Its self control is exhibited in the form of

Various Scientific Laws like Ohms Law, Boyles Law,Avogadro’s Law ans so on • These Laws Give a peep into the Mystery of Universe • How can we have consciousness and intelligence if Universe (or Nature) does not have it ? • To believe Consciousness to be in us without its existence in Nature is being wedded to illogicism
* “Scientific” Books are plenty about the Conscious Universe

Education –A Role definition
• The Role of Education should aim at Orienting • • •
and Evolving the personal mind to an all encompassing Universal Mind. Such Minds Will have the capability to accommodate all differences of opinions,appearances, race,religion and so on.. Such Minds Will Have the Capability to Evolve Know-How to meet the Contemporary Problems in Global Communities/Businesses or Technologies Owners of Such Minds Will Be the Global Leaders of Tomorrow

Orientation
• In our context when we say that a
child is “physically oriented” we mean that the predominant disposition of the child is mainly for physical activities,with spiritual,social intellectual activities playing Secondary or minor roles

Education –Problem Definition Random Take 100 Children at
‘X’ Percentate will be mostly Spiritually/Intuitively Oriented ‘Y’ Percentage will be Mostly Oriented in Social Skills “Z’ Percentage will be Mostly Intellectually Oriented “ P’ percentage will be Mostly Physically Oriented Thus there is a Statistical distributon of Potential and Capabilities (which may be continually evolving) Also for each student there is a skill profile at any given time . Problem definition: What is the Know-how and the guiding principles we have to provide these Children with a given Skill potential/profile ? Also what are the options we have when there is a statistical distribution of these skill sets in a class?

Thus Jane, Linda and Cain are having Intellectual ,Social.and Physical skills respectively predominant in comparison with their other Generic SSIP Traits Jane Linda Cain

Understanding Skill Profile
• The skill Profile Classifies Students into a
Universally Valid Classification of • Spiritual/Intuitive • Social • Intellectual • Physical Attitudes/Values/Capabilities Any Skill Profile is real,but can be permanent or Transient for a given Individual in his evolution depending on the situation

everything physically to their Body Image • They can become Oriented sportspersons/athletes and so on

Skill Profiles-A Note
• The Skill Profiles exist for all human beings • • • • •
throughout our life These profiles change as a person evolves All profiles are equally good yet in one Society first Look upto Spiritual Leaders,Then to Social(political),Intellectual or /Physical (sports/Leaders. But it may be totally different in another society/group Top Performers in Spiritual/Social/Intellectual/Physical/ values often become Social Leaders Thus ,Pope/Mata Amritananda Mayi is looked up to irrespective of Nationality whereas a political leader’s domain is restricted to his vote bank and for an artist or a scientist to admirers of that field , and

Skill Profiles and society
• The whole Global society is a
marketplace for SSIP Values.Any product or service come under any of the Spiritual/Social/ Intellectual/Physical Values.

A dinner spoon serves a physical value A calculator or computer sell an intellectual value of computation.A Spritual TV Channel sells Spiritual Values and a News channel sells Social Values wheras a porno site in internet sells physical values,albeit

Society and Education
