Is there any such thing as absolute truth? Is there a universal definition of justice that everyone agrees with? Why is it that God means different things to different people? When Yaksha said “Hey man, sup?” to Yuddhistira, what did he reply? Why does a wet towel on the bed annoy women? Why do men instinctively throw wet towels on the bed? Why do class toppers end up working in companies founded by the back benchers?

Why are rituals such an important part of our culture? Why do siblings who grow up in the same environment as kids often turn out to be vastly different people? Why do some people follow sports while others follow politics? Why is it that a professor who can explain the intricacies of the Theory of Relativity in the middle of his sleep has trouble remembering where he left his glasses before he slept?

These are some of the questions that came up in our five day workshop and we have answers to. It is amazing to look back and wonder that one single framework is broad enough to answer questions as diverse as these. Medha Jananam has been a wonderful journey of self-discovery and understanding the world around us and the nature of universe in that process.

It helped me get insights into my own personality and that of those around me. It helped me in making my career decisions, how I understand and interact with people every day at work and at home. I have even learned to appreciate and enjoy the small things that previously used to annoy.

The complex ideas that form the basis of Indic philosophy have been weaved together in a wonderfully simple and intuitive framework of AUM by Krishna-garu. The ideas of prakruti-purusha and balancing Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha definitely left me fascinated about our cultural heritage and the richness of Indic philosophy.

Krishna-garu is a wonderful teacher whose teaching style focuses on intuitively laying out the fundamental ideas through genuine engagement, fun activities that introduce us to an intellectual culture without ever resorting to jargon. The atmosphere of the workshop is just amazing.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have been exposed to this remarkable body of knowledge at an early age and I strongly suggest that everyone in their twenties must attend this workshop.
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.
