Four Key points
Madhyasth Darshan (Jeevan Vidya) or ‘Coexistential Philosophy’ has come about via original existential exploratory-research by (late) Shri A Nagraj of Amarkantak, India (originally from Hassan, Karnataka). It is a new discovery that inaugurates the fundamental nature of the Universe, Human Being, Consciousness & Human purpose.
This is not based on any religion, sect, politics or money, but on natural laws, on reality. This is an ‘existence based human focused contemplation’. This Coexistential Philosophy (Coexistentialism) is being presented as an ‘Alternative’ to Materialism(Science) and Theism/Spiritualism for evaluation and study by humankind.
This philosophy is comprehensive. It examines, & provides an integral-view of all dimensions of human life:
- spiritual (existential, experiential),
- intellectual (logical, rational),
- behavioral (emotional) &
- material (sensory, occupational)
