About the Workshop

The introductory workshop is an engaging 7 day dialogue that seeks to address serious curiosities in the areas of

  • Why and How we are – nature & workings of the Mind & Consciousness
  • The true nature of Happiness & Contentment
  • Ethics & Humanistic Living
  • Human Relationships & Family - their purpose & fulfillment
  • Society - goals, multidimensional problems & resolutions
  • Nature, Evolution & the Ultimate Reality

The workshop explores the rich web of connections between seemingly disparate aspects of life. The discussions range from the seemingly mundane to the supposedly profound.

How we conduct them

The workshop does not refer to any traditional or existing texts. 

The facilitator puts forth proposals for participants to examine & reflect - that are meant to be a bridge between the participant and 'Reality'. 

There is no sermonizing or coercing. 

The 'mood' in these workshops ranges from the serious to light hearted. 

There is no 'fee' for the 'teaching'. Participants bear their own boarding & lodging costs. No one is denied a place for want of money. 

Why attend?

There is no satisfaction point for the hoarding of material comforts - an outcome of Materialism.

Spiritualism is steeped in mysticism and has challenges explaining the observed world.

Individualism & Communalism are on the rise -creating a rift in humanity.

We need real, lasting answers to our ecological crisis.

This philosophy offers a cogent, universal, verifiable, livable alternative - based on reality

It proposes solutions to the myriad personal, familial, social & ecological issues we face.

Who we are, our 'world' largely depends on what we've read, the time/place/culture we've grown up in.
What then does it mean to 'truly know' & live a human life?

This understanding fundamentally alters our assumption of who we humans are, why & how we live.

Questions intriguing Humanity

what is 'out there'?
how did we get here?
what is the world made of?
what is our purpose in this world?
why are people the way they are?
why do humans even have these questions?

- complete knowledge of reality & the nature of consciousness enables these answers.

Why we do this

We share this for Universal Good - to fulfil our responsibility towards humankind.

We feel this philosophy is an important breakthrough for critical human questions -it resolves the human condition on this planet.

We have been conducting these workshops since the last 25 years.

Many participants have found answers for meaningful living.

These workshops are not a source for our livelihood. 

We encourage you to attend one of these workshops.


Who attends?

A wide spectrum of people attend:

Students, families, scientists, thinkers, educationist's & activists.

The diversity brings different perspectives, making the session engaging.

Coexistential Philosophy

Coexistentialism or सहअस्तित्ववाद 

is a new discovery. 

It is presented as an Alternative to Theism/Spiritualism & Materialism/Science 


It postulates that Existence (reality) is Coexistence.

It provides a resolution for the religious, ethnic, social, economic & national disparities in us humans.

It is a proposal for an Undivided Society & Balance in Nature. Read more...


Madhyasth Darshan or Coexistential philosophy is by A.Nagraj (1920-2016) of India.


He realized the fundamental nature of the universe, human consciousness & purpose


Study of Existence/Nature, the Human Being & living - in all dimensions.


​​Presents Universal Human Education, Values, World Constitution & Organization


Coherence in human spiritual, intellectual, behavioural and material aspects


This results in happiness, peace, satisfaction & bliss via humanization of education.

Who we are

We are humans from diverse walks of life who are driven by our enquiry to understand and apprehend reality and live with meaning and harmony on this planet.

We are a self supporting group of people, with no religious, political affiliation or 'formal membership' - bound by a common vision and purpose. And no, we are not a 'sect'!

This work is seminal in nature.
We have found a resolution in this proposal.


knowledge is free. like the wind. it's everywhere.

studying life is serious. it's natural. it's a lot of fun.



Message to humankind

" The Study of Human-being could not be accomplished until now by the two major ideologies – Theism/Spiritualism and Materialism/Science – that emerged and evolved in the history of humankind. .. 

The Study of Human-being is now possible in coexistence via Madhyasth Darshan....Human being alone is the seer (knower), coexistence is the reality to be known and universal humane conduct to be lived ...."
