11DAVIET’s Human Value Cell aims to provide the much necessary bridge between the prevalent human condition and the envisioning of a happy and prosperous world. Through the introduction of this cell, an attempt has been made to draw the attention of our stakeholders towards the problems and challenges that are there in front of them at the levels of individual, family, society and nature. Through the method of a vibrant dialogue students are encouraged to do self exploration to differentiate the right from the wrong and stay committed to the decisions taken on the basis of their natural acceptance.
The modern day man is beset with many problems; the chief among them is the feeling of alienation and rootless. Questions about the meaning of life and one’s purpose in this world remain unanswered for a majority of the people. In the absence of correct understanding of one’s aim people face problems at the individual level, and at the level of family, society and nature. Whichever level of existence we might concentrate upon; people are restless, unhappy, jealous and bogged down. The same attitude is carried forward when they have to interact with nature where they end up mercilessly and mindlessly exploiting nature.
The purpose of education is to provide all encompassing solutions to the problems faced by the people. The tragedy of the prevalent system is that our education is more oriented towards creation of skill sets rather than transforming the students into rational, responsible and thinking human beings who can take policy decisions for the welfare of masses without harming the coexistence with nature.

It is hoped that the Human Values Cell of the Institution will ensure that the students are made aware of the problems and their possible solutions through self exploration. The Cell will ensure that the students internalize the fact that they have to respond to situations instead of react. At the same time, the  Cell will facilitate the students to identify their societal responsibilities. Through the activities of the Cell an effort will be made to rid society from the ills prevalent. Further the Human Values Cell will ascertain that the students realize that they have a lot of potential which when realized will propel the society forward in a positive direction.

About the Course

This course is universally adaptable, involving a systematic and rational study of the human being vis-a-vis the rest of existence. It is free from any dogma or value prescriptions. It is a process of self- exploration, and not of giving sermons. Reality is stated as proposal and the students are facilitated to verify it in their own right based on their Natural Acceptance and Experiential Validation. This process of self-exploration takes the form of a dialogue between the teacher and the students to begin with, and within the student himself/herself finally. This self-exploration also enables them to evaluate their pre-conditionings and present beliefs.

Guidelines for Value Education

    • Universal
      It is universally applicable to all human beings and be true at all times and all places. It does not depend on sect, creed, nationality and gender etc. it deals with universal human values.
    • Rational
      It is a set of proposals about reality, not a set of negations
      It is amenable to reasoning
      It is not based on dogmas or blind beliefs
      It is not a set of sermons
      It is not a set of do’s and don’ts
      E.g. It can be taught (it can be communicated clearly, it can be understood, student can be observed to verify that it has been understood)
    • Natural
It is acceptable naturally, it leads to commitment to live in that manner without being forced in any way (conditioned or forced by another person/s)
    • Verifiable

We want to verify these values ourselves, i.e. we don’t want to assume something just because something is stated somewhere. This can be done by both checking for validity within ourselves, as well as something which we can implement in our living (inbehaviour with human beings and work with rest of nature) and observe its outcome.

  • All Encompassing

Value education is not merely an academic exercise. It is aimed at transforming our consciousness and living. Hence, it has to permeate into all dimensions of our living, namely, thought, behavior, work and understanding/realization; as well as all levels namely individual, family, society and nature

  • Leading to Harmony fulfillment of purpose

Finally, value education has to enable us to be in harmony within and in harmony with others. That is it leads to human conduct.
E.g. It leads to fulfillment of the human purpose
Resolution (in the self) in every individual
Prosperity in every family
Fearlessness (trust) in society
Co-existence in Nature/Existence

She advised the benefits of meditating mind and heart for the perfect sync of both together. She explained that meditation is described as the practise of contemplation or focused thought on a single topic. Essentially, you focus your thoughts on a single object, activity, or thought. According to her the meditation is also a technique for teaching the mind to concentrate on one subject for a period of time. The human brain’s inherent role is to think, and during the day, the brain jumps from one concept to another through the process of association. Because our minds are not naturally trained to focus on one item at a time, meditation is required.

Meditation has numerous advantages. On the one hand, meditation can help you focus, concentrate, and be more productive. It also aids in the reduction of tension and anxiety while also enhancing the quality of your sleep. On the other side, it aids in the development of inner traits such as calmness, joy, and a sense of peace and simplicity. The goal of meditation is an essential predictor of the effects of meditation. As a result, selecting a meditation practise with the appropriate meditation object is critical. We’ve all heard about meditation’s benefits and want to give it a try. So what’s the point of waiting for the “proper time”? Isn’t it now the time that we all can  make a positive change in your life? she asked. The lecture was attended by faculty of applied sciences and students. Dr. Kanchan L. Singh, Convener HVC and Head department of Applied Sciences delivered vote of thanks and appreciated the knowledge of madam Swarcha Mehra. Few glimpses:

A SEMINAR CUM WORKSHOP  “REDUCIGN STRESS THROUGH MEDITATION” ON YOGA BY SAHAJA YOGA MEDITATION

On 12 February, 2018 DAVIET Human Values Cell, organised a one day workshop cum seminar for the students and faculty of DAVIET on the topic “Reducign Stress Through Meditation” in which an expert from Sahaja Yoga Meditation Centre guided faculty and students that how to reduce stress with the help of meditation.

He explained that Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation based on an experience called Self Realization (Kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced.

He explained  that one can receive his Self Realization (connection with your Self) while sitting in front of computer. The only condition is sincere desire to have it. He explained the audience that during the experience you will keep your left hand with the palm upwards on your lap and place the right palm on various parts of the body on your left side, while keeping your eyes closed for the entire duration. This way you will be free of distractions and able to keep your attention inside. Taking off your shoes might also help since the Mother Earth sucks all negativity through our feet.

Now, after the end of the meditation, see if you are feeling relaxed and if your thoughts have slowed down or gradually disappeared. This is the first stage of meditation – thoughtless awareness – where you are fully alert but without any thoughts, in a state of pure and peaceful consciousness.

Now see if you can feel a sensation of a gentle cool breeze in your palms and above your head. It might be warm in the beginning which is a sign that your Kundalini energy is purifying your chakras, but it will eventually cool down. You can verify it by placing your left palm 6-12 inches above your head, then trying with the right palm.

If you are unable to feel it, you have probably not forgiven everyone. Say again from your heart, “Mother, I forgive everyone” a few times and check again if you feel the cool breeze above your head.

This is the beginning of a fantastic journey into your own spiritual existence. It is a door opened to a new dimension of your awareness, which you can open and explore. I f sustained through regular meditation, you will be able to feel your subtle centers (chakras) as well as the chakras of others on your fingertips, and correct them using your spiritual energy (Kundalini).

The faculty and students enjoyed the session and performed exercises explained by the expert. The seminar ended with a vote of thanks to the Sahaja Yoga team.
