"Your own self-realization is the greatest service you can render the world." -Ramana Maharshi
Self-realization or self-knowledge furnishes encyclopedic view of life. It is the highest manifestation of knowledge, embracing and consummating all other facts and factors related to knowledge. It is the rudimentary course of the Upanishad entrusted as the ultimate goal of life. "The self is the goal of life; attain this goal." To attain this deep rooted and enduring code of conduct, one needs to mark one's strength, purge all delusions and mask self images that one simulates for different people's perceptions and gratify ego.
In this mundane world, the modern man is a dupe of copious clashing components which upend in the way of self -realization. He is moving very fast leaving behind essential factors for life and forgetting his real being. He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. To realize oneself is to realize one's voracious selfhood. Character and characteristics are made up of many strands that one upraises and elevates from one's experience and life's events. Sometimes they are intense and conceal the real characters and attributes. It is the need of the hour to recognize them maintaining distance, try to eradicate their imprints and make endless efforts to find out the way to walk.
The road a mortal adopts to move in life, directs his soul to achieve ecstasy, works to elevate his spirit, extends helping hands to others, shares responsibilities, contributes for self, society and humanity, building relationship with the environment, if truth to be told, hinge on how efficaciously he manoeuvres his strength. perceives his weaknesses and knowing himself changes his weaknesses into everlasting spring of energy. Here I would like to quote the lines from John Milton's poem, On His Blindness.
When I consider how my life is spent.
Ere half my days in this dark World and wide
And that one talent which is death to hide
lodged with me useless.
Though my soul mere bent to serve there with my maker.
Almighty does not require those gifts that he has consigned to an individual but he stands in need to ascertain and become his own true individual, not what others conclude him to be.
MPS Group of Schools has the genial task at hand to uphold the gifts of Traditional Education System, inaugurating standards of behaviour to the children, assisting them to discern, assimilate self discoveries with the perfect blend of new and advanced trends of education. To maintain the pace with these hallmarks of life in the class indeed is a difficult task but not impossible. Dedication, commitment of the torchbearers, cooperation and allegiance of the parents contribute to have a riser to begin with the hike of self-realization.
"The future belongs to the young. It is a young and new world which is now under process of development and it is the young who must create it."
Hefty roots are required to touch the zenith of life. No term, no condition, no factor is too exorbitant to shield the beacon of inner liberty. It must continue to ignite till eternity.
Wake up! Be thy self
