Paramarthik - Shikshan - Sanstha is a training institute for a Mumukshu.Mumukshu
is one desires to attain salvation.A query of "who am I" when reaches a
climax and the querer steps ahead to seek answer to it is a Mumukshu.Mumukshu
is one who loves behind the whole worldly pleasures, all friends and relatives
and steps ahead to senounce.
Almost 52 years back the ninth Acharya, of Terapanth sect Acharya Tulsi
prophesing the need of the era planned on the institute for Mumukshu, titled
Paramarthik Skishan Sanstha.The institute progressed from here moving form
to the settled state the institute after its twenties was settled in the
deserts of Rajasthan at Ladnun.
Acharya Tulsi not only planned the institute but was also cautious of its
being ever progressive and worth while. The titan Tulsi not only needed
it but also nurtured it with healthy ideals and protected it from the antogonism,
repugnenence and hostility of the orthodox people. Acharya Tulsi's instuition
and broadmindedness , his benovolence and discipline shaped this institute.
The organisation is not merely a building of bricks, not merely a gathering
of few individuals.The bricks of the building may change, the individuals
who come keep progressing towards this aim . A Mumukshu joining this institute
is not a life long member of it.They join the institute flourishes different
qualities like Non- violence , Non-attachement, truth, celabacy,tolerance
at nad steps forward for saintism .Thus these qualities of the exciting
Mumukshu group together to become an eternal entity of the instiute . According
to the words of Kioko Sugiure the instititution is in a rather isolated
and peaceful place away from all the disturbances of city life . Away from
the tensions and problems of the world . Yet the training given here has
a key to solve the problems of the world and a key to create world peace.
P.S.S. having celebrated her golden jubilie has a spectacular record of
training more than 700 Mumukshus,and thus it is an industry producing efficient
sadhvis and samnis who travel not only in India but even abroad preaching
the philosophy of Non-violence , Anuvrat , Preksha Meditation etc.
The institutions peculiarity lies in her management also.The management
being divided betwen two steps. One constituting the people ( lay members
) who have been active since the foundation was laid . These great men's
dedication has played a momentious role in the security and upliftment of
the institute. The time, power and donation rendered by them can never he
remunerated.The lengthy list of these men include late Chogawalji, Klyanmelji,
Ranamelji etc and at the present Roopchandji setia. These characterised,
eligible and ideal devoters have not only presented themselves as good manager
but there psychological approach also helps Mumuksha solve these problems.
These comprehensive attituted towards Mumukshas taste, thought and needs
has created a progressive land.
The other staff which is a key to this augumenting institute consist of
Sadhvis and Samnis. They look after the domestic affairs. These spiritual
guidence ministry the inversely of a Mumuksha. These devotes gurdiens help
Mumuksha to maintain these mental and bodily health. They play an important
role in the upliftment of the unattached minerself.
Education:- P.S.S. is an institute where a Mumuksha achieves both
theoretical and practical education. The P.S.S. runs a college captioned
" Bremhi Vidya peeth" which revies the history by presenting the RhishiAshrame
picture other than this Mumuksha are also the students of Jain Vishwa Bharati
Institute deemed university . These educational institutes workes reviving
our ancient languages like Sanskrit, Prakrit. Here the students opens the
knots of different philosophies.
Today competition in the educational field potrays its importance, but still
it has failed to give better citizen, better people to the society. This
lacuna in the present educationa is filled up here by the study of ethics.
Vivekanand has rightly said "essence of knowledge is not simple collection
of photo but concentration of mind". Mind can be concentrated only when
controlled. The education system here does not aim at merely increasing
the IQ (Intelligence quiotent) but involves the knowledge and experiments
covered with better life through the new brains of science "science of living."
Teacher not only feed the students mind with facts but also mould their
mind. The thinking and behaviour of a Mumukshu is shaped here.Truely it
is said that character building is not the work of a dry paper but a living
teacher.Thus the morally strict teacher not only teach the lessons of philosophy
and sociology but also of good conduct. Further the students are also being
served in this field.
The institute holds camps of Yoga and Meditation which guide a Mumuksha
in her personality development. The camps are hold for students and teachers
together. They are trained to face life .The educaton of how to live in
present, how to avoid mental frustration, how to relate with the one's fellows,
how to lived a fresh and healthy life is all thought in this camp.
For a person choosing this field, training is a must since one who renounces
has to face drastic changes in life viz. the change of place, living style,
attitude, thought etc. A Mumukshu has to transform not only her outfit but
also her inner self. The institution provides training in scholastic and
disciplinery matters which are presequisites of moastic life. Mumkshu's
yearly curiculum includes self discipline and religious duty as well. Mumkshu's
journey to different country is all for the society. They preach Lord Mahavira's
doctrines.They work in the field of Non-addiction, character building, etc.
They guide the people with right path, help them to solve thier probelms,
relieve tensions and create a spiritual environment. They work for the eradication
of social evils. They follow prakrit saying "tinnam taryanam". They toil
aiming at breaking down the birth-death circle.
Parmarthik sikshan sanstha though is quantitatively small but qualitatively
it is splendid. Mumksha joining this institute come from different parts
of the country and aboard. Sisters differing in their hobbies, thought attitudes
are still found together with the thread of love, affection, humbleness
and respect. Mumukshu's activities starts off in the late moon light itself.
Mum... offers prayers to the percepton then chants eulogy filled with devotion.
Mum ponders and conceives Lord Mahavira's world. After these ritual with
the rising him progresses pranayame Yoga and Meditation. Thus augmenting
purity, subtle powers and the conciousness of the all. Practicals of relalisation
and self visualization help in Mum's betterment,establish concord among
the Mumkshus. Mumkshus manages the different departments of the institute
P.S.S. has a library of its own with a collection of vivid books. Books
relating to different languages and different subjects Books of different
Indian and alien authors as well as different philosophers are found in
Mumukshu, progresses from discipline to self -discipline. Mumukshu coming
from different exuberant families have a simple living and high thinking.
They have to cost out the human infirmities and develop a strong imaculate
form. The organisation now in the hands of Acharya Tulsi's successor Yogapradhana
Acharya Shri Mahapragya is blooming. The whole and soul of the organisation
Acharya Mahapragya's, with his dairroncy is modifying it further. Acharya
Mahapragya's handling the institute's remote control views it as a spiritual
- Parmarthik shiksan sanstha is a marvellous institute in only for those
zealous to abjure the wordly pleasures, has a code of conduct accordingly.
- Mumukshu practices minute Non -voilence. Non-voilence not only to
the bodily state that also to the level of mind and thought.
- Mumukshu observes celibacy.
- Mumukshu practices forbidding attachments from the earthly materials.
- Mumukshu's supreme goal is being in control. Mumukshu's fausloth natures
and environmental complexities with a pleasent conscience.
Thus Parmarthik Sikshan Sanstha's spiritual centres endeavours to create
religious and scientific these ascetic, monastie celebraties and serves
the whole world.
