Attending Medha Jananam workshop is definitely one of the most productive 8 hrs of the day, I have been awake. Fortunately, I came to know of this workshop from a pamphlet outside a library. Something in my heart told me to make it a point to attend it on the weekend. On my way to the workshop, I was apprehensive about its nature. I wondered whether it is going to be another abstract discourse about the great vedic philosophy and feel the oneness with the cosmic energy permeating this universe. To try and get out of the "Maya" that lord has created to keep us mortals busy. Basically, not to take life too seriously and just keep doing your karma and go with the flow. There would have been nothing wrong with that discourse too just that it would have been routine. To my pleasant surprise, it was nothing like that.

What I liked about our session was at the end of it, I got to appreciate the visualization system for the diversity in the nature of the people that Krishna Garu has come up with. I too had these ideas and thoughts in my mind but Krishna Garu has woven a rich tapestry of human instincts in this session. Clearly, he has put in years of effort and personal insights and experience from previous medha jananam graduates in his workshop. He gives due respect to your opinion and explains any apparent contradiction you might feel with your thought process or experience. Also interaction is bi-directional and you also learn from other graduates in the workshop. There is a constructive genial atmosphere in the workshop.

Medha jananam is a very positive experience and I would definitely recommend it to anybody.

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 feel your fullness, you don't feel the bliss,
    which is really what you are after.
