Senganal Thirunavakarasu
March 21, 2011
It is just amazing how deep the ancient people have thought about and analyzed the realm of the mind and the spiritual. There is a lot of knowledge and wisdom in the ancient texts but is inaccessible without proper guidance from a guru. I thank Krishna for the painstaking work of collecting, interpreting so much information and refining it into a few essential ideas. He is a good teacher and is able to explain these abstract ideas in an intuitive and simple manner.

My biggest take away from the workshop is the fact that people (not just people, but ‘bhutas’ in general) have different personalities by nature. This is a simple idea and we kind of understand this intuitively. But the real kicker is how elegantly the multitude of personalities can be expressed using few core energies. I am now constantly thinking / analyzing about actions/reactions of myself and people around me and it is giving me a better insight into myself and others.

Medhajananam has provided me a framework that is elegant (appeals to me), logical (I can reason it out, and not just take it on faith), practical (I can implement and experiment) and is essentially a viewing glass to see/understand more clearly the black box that is the world. Of course, one should be careful to not force everything to conform to these ideas and get dogmatic about it. I believe that I have gotten a glimpse of an elegant way to understand and accept myself and the world around me. The ideas are simple but I think the depth is immense and it will take practice, patience and time to fully realize it as a natural part of my life.
Medha Jananam - Ignite the Intellect
  • Welcome!

    Welcome to Medha Jananam!
    Medja Jananam is a Sanskrit phrase,
    which can be translated to 'Igniting the Intellect'.

    In our workshops, we explore
    the simple as well as the complex aspects of life.
  • Life

    The Journey
    of an imperfect being
    in an imperfect world.
  • Excellence

    अयोग्यः पुरुषो नास्ति प्रयोगः तत्र दुर्लभः

    Everyone excels at some thing.
    It is the opportunities
    that are difficult to come by.
  • Part and Whole

    Human is to humanity
    what a cell is to the body.
  • Time

    We have to kill time
    till time kills us.
  • Live

    Live AS yourself,
    but not FOR yourself.
  • Life

    When you were born:
    the universe is divided into two:
    Inside and Outside.

    Life is an interaction between the two.
  • Bliss

    Unless you go beyond the founder, you don’t understand religion.
    Unless you go beyond religion, you don’t understand god.
    Unless you go beyond god, you don’t understand spirituality.
    Unless you go beyond spirituality, you don’t understand yourself.
    Unless you understand yourself, you don’t find the Truth.
    Unless you find the Truth, you don’t feel your fullnesss.
    Unless you feel your fullness, you don't feel the bliss,
    which is really what you are after.

    You need a shell to grow.
    You need to break out of the shall to grow.
    You need a womb to grow.
    You need to come out of the womb to grow.
