Except our own
thoughts, there is nothing
absolutely in our power.
We are what We think.
All that we are arises with our Thoughts
With our Thoughts we make the world--Buddha
―The first step in the acquisition of
wisdom is silence, the second listening, the
third memory, the fourth practice, the
fifth teaching others.‖

Fear of Failure
• There is art to living with joy and a science to managing all
forms of energy including our own.
• Learning to manage the force of life
flowing through us is a worthy endeavor
and one that brings many rewards.
FIVE GREAT INTELLECTUAL
• Five Great Intellectual Professions, relating to daily
necessities of life have hitherto existed in every
• The Soldiers' Profession to defend it
• The Teachers to Teach it
• The Physician’s To keep it in health
• The lawyers to enforce justice in it
• The Merchant’s to provide for it
FIVE GREAT INTELLECTUAL
• Duty of all these men/women is on due occasion, to
die for it.
• ―On due occasion‖ namely
• The soldier ,rather than leave his post in the battle
• The Physician, rather than leave his post in Plague
• The teacher, rather than teach falsehood
FIVE GREAT INTELLECTUAL
• The Lawyer, rather than countenance injustice
• The Merchant what is ―the due occasion‖ of death.
• He has to understand to their very root the qualities
of thing he deals in and the means of obtaining or
producing it and he has to apply all his sagacity and
energy to producing or obtaining it in perfect state
and distributing it at the cheapest possible price
where it is most needed
EDUCATION TO INCLUDE EDUCARE
"Education has two aspects; the first is related to external and
worldly education, which is nothing but acquiring bookish
knowledge. In the modern world, we find many well versed and
highly qualified in this aspect. The second aspect known
as Educare, is related to human values. The
word Educare means to bring out that which iswithin. Human
Values are latent in every human being; one cannot acquire them
from outside. They have to be elicited from within. Educare
means to bring out human values. To 'bring out' means to
translate them into action."
• It comes from 'educere', a Latin word meaning to
draw out, because we draw out the values which are
inherent in a human being, rather than impose
anything on children from outside.
Educare therefore refers to a whole system of
education which provides practical knowledge for
educating for life, and not just for earning a living.
LOVE – Using the power of energy
Love is not an emotion, affected by the sub-conscious mind, but Is
a spontaneous, pure reaction from the heart.
It is the power of love which causes one person to wish happiness
for another and take pleasure in their well-being. A beneficial
energy (love) is directed towards the other person.
As this energy flows through our own body first, it also enhances
our own health. Love is having an unconditional positive regard for
the good of another.
It is giving and unselfish. Love is essential if children are to grow
up healthy in mind and body.
Love is the unseen undercurrent binding all the other four values
Peace - Using the tool of the mind
We smile when we are happy and contented.
Contentment is gained when we refuse to give ourselves all the
apparent 'good' things conveyed to us through our five senses.
When our will is sufficiently strong to enable us to discern the
difference between real needs and superfluous desires, we cease to
be driven by the urge to own more and more things.
Inner agitation stops and we are left feeling peaceful. When
there is peace in the individual, there will be peace in the family,
when there is peace in the family, there will be peace in the
In order to learn self esteem, calmness and freedom from anxiety
are necessary. These qualities are fostered by the y silent sitting and
the self-reflective exercises.
Truth – Discrimination and Intellect
Desire to know Truth has prompted mankind to
ask some of the great questions such as ―Who
Am I‖ or ―What is the purpose of this life‖?
Learning to speak the truth is a vital step in the
formation of a strong character.
Voicing an untruth is an anti-social act and
causes confusion in the mind of both the speaker
and the listener and leads to anti-social
Right Conduct - Using the tool of the body
Information is received through the five
senses, i.e. smell, taste, sight, touch and
When this information is referred to the
conscience, the resulting action will be
Every action is preceded by a thought. If the
thought is consciously seen and noted, it aims
to assist and is unselfish, the action will be
good for oneself and others.
If our minds are busy, or we are
daydreaming, the action may be useless, clumsy
or harmful to ourselves and others.
Non Violence – Awakening the Sprit Within
For the non-violent person the whole
world is his family.
When the former four values are
practised (i.e. )The conscious mind is keenly
aware, love is overflowing, there is peace
and actions are undertaken without harm
or violation to anything else.
It is the highest achievement of the
human to live and with encompassing
respect for all life living in harmony with
nature and not hurting by thought, word or
Empathy-Ability to understand and share the feelings of other
What Can You DO
–Do What You Can To Innovate, Create Jobs.
–Engage in Politics
–Help Others Understand Key Issues
• ―Those who educate children well are more to be
honored than they who produce them; for these only
gave them life, those the art of living well.‖
• The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the
desire, to observe natural phenomena. The teacher
must understand and feel her position of observer: the
activity must lie in the phenomenon.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The
superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
William Arthur Ward
If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of
beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal
members who can make a difference. They are the father, the
mother and the teacher.
It is the supreme art of
the teacher to awaken
joy in creative expression
IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING
“There is nothing that training cannot do.
Nothing is above its reach or below it. It can turn
bad morals to good, good morals to bad; it can
destroy principles, it can recreate them; it can
debase angels to men and lift men to angels.
And it can do any of these miracles in a year -even six months.”

Mind sight is a kind of focused attention that
allows us to see the internal workings of our own
minds. It helps us to be aware of our mental
processes without being swept away by
them, enables us to get out of autopilot behaviors
and habitual responses and moves us beyond the

relational process that regulates the flow of energy and

Your subconscious is a simple stimulus-response mechanism. It holds all the automatic
processes that make your life possible and all the conditioning that you have accumulated
through your life.
There’s a lot of good and necessary programming in there: how to breathe, how to pump
blood, how to fight off infection, how to walk, how to drive a car. You can’t live without
the million little tasks that are carried out by your subconscious mind.
If you were aware of all these activities at once, they would overwhelm you. That’s why
consciousness is set up so that you don’t have to pay attention to them. They are carried
out subconsciously. However, your subconscious also houses those little devils that get in
your way: the habitual tensions, negative emotions, and limiting beliefs that run counter
to your best and highest intentions. How do you neutralize these little devils? You’ve got
to go yet deeper into a third layer of your being, your subtle energy system
QUIET TIME MANAGEMENT(STILLNESS)
• Silence is not an absence of sound; it is the
presence of meaning,
• In an age of increasing electronic chatter —
24x7 television, mobile phones, Twitter,
SMSs — ―getting the silent bits right‖ is
becoming more and more difficult. And, for
that reason, more and more necessary.
Pranayama Breathing Technique
•Pranayama, also known as yoga breathing, is a system of controlled
breathing used to help balance the amount of carbon dioxide and oxygen in
the body. Pranayama's deeper breathing allows you to increase the amount
of oxygen you take in and purge toxic waste, including carbon
dioxide, from your body.
• By eliminating more waste from the body, states that you will improve
your digestion and immunity to sickness, as well as lower your stress
•Pranayama to calm and soothe stressful situations. The first step to
Pranayama is mastering "the complete breath." The complete breath
incorporates movement in the abdomen, chest cavity and shoulders to take
in the deepest and most productive breath possible.
• India ,China and Japan have given birth to sages who realized their
essential nature as flow of intelligence
• In India flow of energy is called Prana (translated into life force)
which can be increased and decreased at will moved here and there
and manipulated to keep the physical body orderly and young.
• Ability to contract and use Prana is within all of us.
• A Yogi moves Prana using nothing more than attention
• At the deep level attention and Prana are the same
• Life is awareness and awareness is life
