To pursue our motive to bridge the gap between wisdom and modern advancements, we have formed a value-centered professional and committed team, SatyatÄ«rtha, with a motto: Truth-seeking, Capable and Caring People Striving for Social Good.
The team launched its first initiative Mission Man-e-Script in 2006-07. The mission primarily focuses on research and publication of Saá¹ƒská¹›ta philosophical literature. Purnapramati is another initiative of SatyatÄ«rtha Foundation® (a non-profit organization) for integrated learning.
The Indian heritage personified in great sages like VÄlmÄ«ki and documented in the epics like MahÄbhÄrata is the primary inspirational force for SatyatÄ«rtha Foundation. Life and works of Ä€nandatÄ«rtha, a 13th century philosopher par excellence are the driving factor for us in pursuing this path.
In a country as rich and variegated as India, be its mountains, rivers, forests, people or her culture, each one of them have inspired every step of this journey. From Kalish-Manasa-sarovar in Tibet to Kumara Parvat in south, Kanchanaganga in East to Narayana-Sarovara in Gujarat, an Anna Hazare in remote village of Maharashtra to Anil Agarwal in Delhi, Prabodhini Gurukula in Hariharapura to Siddh School in Kempti, the insights of Bharat Jhunjhunwala to works of Rajendra Singh are just a few sources for powerful and diverse inspirations. Such exposure also brings a new perspective to life. The pursuit of such wider exposure requires stretching physical limits, in climbing the peaks and trekking the remotest places of the world, and this in turn makes us mentally strong with resilience to pursue the impossible.
Modern world, along with material prosperity, also brought the very purpose of modernity into question. Ironically, the foundations for providing any answer also became questionable. What is development? How do we answer it? What is our role? Such fundamental questions have driven the idea of Purnapramati, towards serious studies in Philosophy and its relations with society. From a social perspective, consider the projects like Kaiga Nuclear Plant or many other such projects, at the cost of enormous natural resources, which have been sustained over millions of years to meet our energy needs.
Philosophical questions lead to a different kind of adventure. Our land is a treasure trove here too. Like the Majestic Himalayas, a wonder in many ways, be its geographical features or culture, Indian literature too, like Mahabharata and Ramayana unravels the infinite wisdom. It is such works spread across the country, in manuscripts and living traditions that bring the spirit of this ancient civilization alive. Many shaastras and kalaas (arts) in our tradition blend pure intellect, emotions and beauty together. The contemporary issues surrounding our society and polity are missing these roots, arguably due to our own slavery, so that we still are educated without these, and it only continues to weaken them. Creating a new world and order – Shangri-la, within whatever limited scope, has always been the driving force behind Purnapramati.
Modern leaders like Anil Agarwal, Founder, Center for Science and Environment, Deep Joshi, Founder, PRADAN, Vijay Mahajan, Founder, Basix India Pvt Ltd, and Rajendra Singh, Founder, Tarun Bharat Sangh, who have made significant social impact through their noble thoughts and professional work, inspire us for our organizational structure and objectives. Spiritual and Social leader, Sri Vishwesha Tirtha Swamiji (Founder, Poorna Prajna Vidya Pita), is our role model for his work in philosophy and social service.
There have been many more people in the past and modern times, who inspire us. The above list is indicative to help us identify our values and realize the vision.
