What is the single most important factor in the transformation of the individual and the society?

Without doubt, it is Education. But as yet, it has still not been explored to its full and utmost potential, resulting only in a fractured image and perception of what it means. To go beyond the obligatory demands from education, that is, the procurement of a job or respectable standing in society, we need to take a more integral approach.

Our series on Integral Education aspired towards this end and brings across different facets of education, all leading eventually to the desired transformation and fulfilment of the true ideal.

INTEGRAL EDUCATION SERIES (presenting the views of Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, Swami Vivekananda, Pavitra, Nolini Kanta Gupta, M.P. Pandit, Medhananda, S. Radhakrishnan, Navajata, Rishabchand, Robert Bainbridge, Maria Montessori, Alfred Adler, Kireet Joshi, Sanat K. Banerji, Yvonne Artaud, Sita Ram Jayaswal, Indra Sen, Friedrich Froebel, Jesse Roarke and Norman C. Dowsett.)

Excerpts from Education of the Future:

  • What is needed is a new system of education, one which does not limit …..; a system which would enter the whole life of man – his aspiration, his work, his play – in the rhythm of his daily development.
  • If, like adult dogs and cats, we find it difficult to play together, we can have the assurance that the puppy and the kitten who grow up together will be able to live together when they are adult, and to practice together the plays of friendship.
  • The occupation of a child, and his only occupation, should be play, and if our education cannot be play, it is better not to have any. A hundred years ago 80% of our children were crippled by slave labour. Today 100% are crippled by education.
  • A movement can be really beautiful only when the whole being participates in it. When a child stands up, the universe stands up. When he dances, the cosmos dances. The whole being must become conscious that there is only one consciousness.
  • ….. any educated incompetent can take. It requires a man, a true individual, a mature being, to contribute something which is uniquely his. For this, man is loved, is truly recognised, is accepted into the heart of the community, the soul of the nation, the evolutionary movement of the world.
