In search of a new approach to Integral Education. (see the full version in attachment) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Unknown is not the Unknowable1, it need not remain the unknown for us, unless we choose ignorance or persist in our first limitations. For to all things that are not unknowable, all things in the universe, there correspond in that universe faculties which can take cognisance of them, and in man, the microcosm, these faculties are always existent and at a certain stage capable of development. We may choose not to develop them; where they are partially developed, we may discourage and impose on them a kind of atrophy. But, fundamentally, all possible knowledge is knowledge within the power of humanity. (The Life Divine, Page: 13) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On Vedic Epistemology. In the ancient conception of the universe our material existence is formed from the five elemental states of Matter, the ethereal, aerial, fiery, liquid and solid; everything that has to do with our material existence is called the elemental, adhibhuta. In this material there move non-material powers manifesting through the Mind-Force and Life-Force that work upon Matter, and these are called Gods or Devas; everything that has to do with the working of the non-material in us is called adhidaiva, that which pertains to the Gods. But above the non-material powers, containing them, greater than they is the Self or Spirit, tman, and everything that has to do with this highest existence in us is called the spiritual, adhyatma. (The Upanishads, p.114) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The central aim of Knowledge is the recovery of the Self, of our true self-existence (The Synthesis of Yoga, p.335) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ An integral education which could, with some variations, be adapted to all the nations of the world, must bring back the legitimate authority of the Spirit over a matter fully developed and utilised. The Mother, (1965 in reference to the Education Commission, quoted in India and Her Destiny, p.18)
