“Caring and sharing is the principle of community living, no matter what we do! It is said that it takes an entire village to raise a child! Without community life, a human child grows up isolated and self-centered!” Ammaji
Within the Community initiative we explore the concept of human interaction with society as explained by the Rishis (seers) in the Vedic texts. We will look at the aspects of Vasudaiva Kutumbam (world as a family) and learn about the four ashrams which, according to the Vedas, a person has to belong to to develop a community. Further study will cover aspects of the Pancha Maha Yagnas (daily code of conduct) and their impact on the community.
We will also learn about Ammaji’s Awareness programmes; about life as a female student (Sukanya), male student (Sukumara), youth (Suyuva), married woman (Sugrihini), married couple (Sudampati), and family (Suparivara). We will explore the concepts of unity and diversity in communities as well as the needs of modern communities, using examples from the Itihasas and Puranas.
Let us all learn and share from the various sections included here. Please feel free to connect with Ammaji either on the website (www.purnavidya.org), the Blog ‘Conversations with Ammaji’, or via our Facebook page (Purna Vidya Foundation).
