दर्शन, सृजनात्मकता और मानवीय सम्बन्ध (Philosophy, Creativity and Human Relations)


दर्शन, सृजनात्मकता और मानवीय सम्बन्ध
(Philosophy, Creativity and Human Relations)
सारांश
मानवीय-सम्बन्ध सदियों से दर्शन और साहित्य के अध्ययन का मुख्य विषय रहा है.  जब भी हम मानवीय सम्बन्धों के विवेचन पर जाते है तब हम इनकी प्रकृति, व्यक्तिगत और सामाजिक सम्बन्धों की प्रमाणिकता के सम्बन्ध में बात करते हैं और हम केवल दार्शनिक विचारों तक ही  सीमित नहीं रहते बल्कि हमें मनोविज्ञानिकों, समाजशास्त्रियों, राजनीतिक विचारकों के साथ-साथ साहित्यकारों द्वारा दी गयी व्याख्याओं का भी अध्ययन करना पड़ता है क्यूंकि यह अन्तर्रविषयी अध्ययन का विषय है.  जब भी  मानवीय सम्बन्धों का दार्शनिक अध्ययन करते हैं  तो हमें   मानवीय प्रकृति, नैतिक मूल्यों, ज्ञान का क्षेत्र, राजनीतिक-स्वतन्त्रता और अनिवार्यता इत्यादि दर्शन के विभिन्न पहलुओं को भी समझना पड़ता है. प्रेम की प्रकृति (the nature of love), मित्रता (friendship), आत्माभिरुचि एवम अन्य (self-interest and others) , दूसरों से सम्बन्ध (relationships with strangers) और सामाजिक-सहभागिता  (social participation) इत्यादि इस अध्ययन की विषयवस्तु में सम्मिलित है. इस शोध-पत्र का मुख्य उद्देश्य दर्शन और सृजनात्मकता में सम्बन्ध और मानवीय सम्बन्धों  में इनकी उपयोगिता का अध्ययन करना है.

Short Report on the Lecture on “Ideals of Sarada Ma in Modern Age”



The Departments of Hindi  & Philosophy in collaboration with NSS Unit of  P.G.Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh organized a lecture on “Ideals of Sarada Ma in Modern Age” on 9th  September, 2014. Smt. Soma Sinha (President, All India Sarada Sangh) was the chief-guest of this program. The details of the progrmme is given below:

Dr. Anita Khosla (Head, Department of Hindi, PGGCG-11, Chandigarh) coordinated the function and introduced Chief-Guest and gave a detail account of her spiritual career.  Dr. Anita Kausal (Dean, PGGCG-11) welcomed the guests by presenting them a bunch of flowers.

The programme was stated with the prayers and bhajans sung by the members of Ramakrishna Ashram, Chandigarh i.e. Dr. Saroj Jindal and Mrs.  Purnima  Chanda. Mrs. Shubra Chattopadhyaya (Secretary, All India Sarada Sangh, Chandigarh Branch) discussed about the various activities of the Sangha related to education, women empowerment and spiritual offerings.  Mrs. Manju Mukherjee (Secretary, All India Sarada Sangh)  gave a detailed account of the activities done by the Sangh and she beautifully discussed the activities held under the presidentship of Smt. Soma Sinha.

Smt. Soma Sinha discussed in her lecture about the personality of Sri Ma Sarada Devi and her holy presence in the work for the upliftment of women and children. Sarada Devi did not write any books; her utterances and reminiscences have been recorded by her disciples including Swami Nikhilananda, Swami Tapasyananda. Though her spiritual insight and utterances are highly regarded by scholars like Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, who writes, “We have bits and pieces of her exquisite remarks as testimony.”  She said that Ma Sarada was the embodiment of all wisdom, as Sri Ramakrishna used to say, and this wisdom, both worldly and spiritual, was the guiding force behind the establishment of the Ramakrishna Mission in 1897. Hers was a universal motherhood, characterized by unconditional love, unruffled spirituality, extreme simplicity blended with dignity and a loving temperament that accepted all irrespective of nationality, religious affiliation or social position. Even after she left her mortal coil in 1920, she remains the soothing solace for millions of afflicted hearts longing for her nonpareil, eternal bliss. Devi played an important role as the advisory head of a nascent organization that became a monastic order devoted to social work—the Ramakrishna Mission. She also used quotations of Ma Sarada like, “Learn to make the whole world Our own. No one is a stranger, my child; the whole world is Our own.”  “When one realizes God, He grants knowledge and illumination from within; one knows it oneself.”, “In the fullness of one’s spiritual realization one will find that He who resides in one’s heart, resides in the hearts of others as well – the oppressed, the persecuted, the untouchable, and the outcast.” Smt Soma Sinha also interacted with students and asked questions about the life of Swami Vivekananda, Sri Ma Sarada Devi and Sri Ramakrishna Dev.

 

A book entitled, “Development of Personality” by Swami Vivekananda distributed among 300 students. A feedback from students also made the event successful. Several students shared their thoughts after the lecture. “Viveka-Vahini” also arranged for this occasion and several students read and purchase books .


In the end of the programme, Dr. Beenu Dogra (Vice-Principal, PGGCG-11, Chandigarh) presented a thanking note. She beautifully presented her words of wisdom. Several faculty members from various departments of the college and  about 300 students participated in this event and enjoyed the programme peacefully and thoughtfully.
