The much awaited educational and spiritual centre Jeevanvidya Dnyansadhana Kendra of Jeevan Vidya mission will be inaugurated today at sector 6, near Shiv mandir in Kamothe. The inauguration will be done by Sharada Mai, wife of late Sadguru Shri Wamanrao, who was the founder of the mission.
Thane district guardian minister Ganesh Naik and Dilip Valse-Patil, speaker of Maharashtra state legislative assembly will also be present, among others.
The Kamothe dhyan centre will conduct various courses namely Swanand Yog basic and advance courses, courses for youth guidance, courses for students as well as Kautimbik Swasthya (for family). "These courses will be conducted by experienced trainers covering various topics of Jeevanvidya philosophy. Jeevanvidya Mission also conducts specialised trainings based on Jeevanvidya philosophy for corporates and big industrial houses in India," said Umesh Dharmakulkar, a senior member of the mission.
"Jeevan Vidya mission's philosophy is based on sciences like psychology, philosophy, para-psychology and many more, and the main motive is for the world to be happy and India be ahead in terms of all aspects," said Sayali More, a student, attached to the mission.
"Since its inception in 1955, Jeevanvidya mission operates on a non-profit basis with 100% unpaid volunteers from trustees to every participant for the sole purpose of making Jeevanvidya philosophy easily accessible to masses for spiritual upliftment and empowerment of people," she added.
"Jeevanvidya mission has a secular, universal and eternal philosophy. It is secular because it is intimately related to human culture and not any religion. It is universal since it is useful to the whole of mankind. It is eternal because it is based on the universal laws of nature," said another student.
The mission has also got one meditation centre in Karjat and the opening of the new centre in Kamothe will facilitate residents who cannot go to Karjat. "There has been growing demand of local centres as many people were not able to go to Karjat," said Dharmakulkar.
The classes at Kamothe centre will be held in both Marathi and Hindi languages. "We want to propagate the philosophy of Sadguru Wamanrao and thus will soon translate all the works in Hindi," added Dharmakulka.
