AUTHOR(S): Rajesh Arora
The study has been under taken to find out the main aspects of spiritual education of the philosophy of Prajapita Brahma and its implications to bridge the gap between the materialistic and spiritual education to develop the true nature of individual which enables him to experience true innate qualities of love, peace, happiness, purity and bliss and also to teach the individual to live with his fellows beings in harmony and with compassion. The philosophical method has been used for the study and collection of data. The reality of human being is eternal, imperishable, indestructible ‘soul’ which leaves one human body after its death and enters another human body. It is a point of light that resides in the centre of forehead and controls five senses through three subtle faculties of mind, intellect and resolves (sanskars). Its innate qualities and real religion is peace, happiness, love, knowledge and purity. . The introduction of The Supreme has four components- His Name, Form, Abode and Attributes. The ancient name of The Supreme is “Shiva”. The Supreme soul is also a soul and its shape, size, form is the same as that of a soul but differs because of its attributes. The Supreme does not take birth through the womb of the mother. Its attributes are compared with ocean as ocean of love, peace, happiness, knowledge, purity and bliss. He is the almighty, omnipotent but is not omnipresent. His abode is silence world. The Rajyoga meditation is the method of connection of soul with The Supreme soul on the basis of spiritual knowledge of self and The Supreme through mind. The meditation spiritually awakens the man by making him realise, experience the innate qualities of love, peace, happiness, bliss, purity and fills the gap of spiritual depletion in man. The spiritual awakening brought through spiritual education at all levels from elementary to university would help to use the gifts of science for the betterment of mankind and would bring peace, harmony, truthfulness, tolerance, brotherhood, good work culture and love for humanity.
