It has been a couple of weeks since the conclusion of the Medha Jananam class, yet I still think about the course and its concepts. The oneness of everything in the universe is such a difficult idea to grasp by yourself, but our unity becomes apparent in everything we do when you discuss it in a group with an engaging leader. Whether you are curious about the universe and eastern philosophy or you just want to make sense of your life in a hectic world, the medha jananam class/workshop/lecture/whatever you want to call it, is very eluminating!

I gained a better understanding of myself and those around me. The constant exploration goes deep into ourselves and expands out into the universe. There is no one right and one wrong, it just depends how you are affected by the events surrounding you. The success of your actions is not determined solely on your effort, but on the acceptance of ideas by the people and stuctures in your life. These are some ideas made simple by Mr. Krishna Sharma, and they make it easier to find peace in your life.

When I started Medha Jananam I wasn’t sure what to expect. I learned gradually that through life’s framework or set of ways that there is no need to make our world more difficult by demanding things from it. The forces at work are beyond us, yet such an important part of us that there is no need to fight or escape. Just being present is enough to give our life meaning. The core of this course isn’t learning some grand, new scheme or way of seeing things. I believe it is learning to be comfortable just being who you are, and not being afraid to share that with others.

Thank you,
Om, Jai guru deva om.
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.
  • Growth

    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.
    You need a home to grow.
    You need to get out of the home to grow.
    You need a religion to grow.
    You need to go beyond the religion to grow.
    You need a philosophy to grow.
    You need to come out of the philosophy to grow.
