      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Chidanandaya!

      We have a uploaded an essay by Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj on
      a subject that is very dear to Swamiji, viz. education.

      It is quite obvious that the education system today is only concerned with
      the external and has almost completely ignored the inner being. In this
      essay, Swamiji outlines an educational curriculum which integrates both
      the external and internal. The title of the essay is "A Project of
      Education" and it is at

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      CONFUSION CAUSED BY TEACHERS: Mr J. Claude Petitpierre of Switzerland
      visited the Ashram. During his conversation with the Master he expressed a
      doubt as to whether after the death of one's preceptor one can resort to
      another teacher.

      "Where is the necessity?" asked the Master, and continued, "The Guru had
      given you instructions. He will inspire you from his new abode."

      After a few moments the Master added, "There is no harm in taking
      instructions from another, because all teachers are one; but some teachers
      try to disturb one's faith. Some say that Bhakti (devotion) is useless;
      others assert that Vedanta is useless. One should take only such
      instructions as are conducive to one's chosen path."


      "Man can exist even without the body. This is strange. Did he not exist in
      dream without association with the body? Though it is true that in the
      waking conditions an association with the physical body is essential, in
      other conditions like dream, one does exist without the body. There are
      then states of consciousness when one can exist without association with
      the body. If man can exist without the body, his real essence cannot be
      the body. Dream is an example, numbness is an example, and swoon is an
      example, to prove this fact." - Swami Krishnananda
