Views of Different Scholar's on the Book Manav Mulyama Adharit Shiksha (Human Value Based Education)

To become a complete human being, we need to acquire knowledge of morality and higher spirituality along with physical science. Moral and spiritual education should be given to the students as per their age and learning capacity. For this, this book is rather useful. It is readable for all the students, teachers, scholars, spiritual thinkers equally. I want to congratulate Dr. Chandi P. Chapagain, the creator of such work.
– Rastra Kavi Madhav Ghimire

The collection of education related ideas of both ancient and modern age along with the prayers, songs, and story has made this book readable. Collection of a number of intellectuals' views, well-timed presentation of eastern philosophy and spirituality make this book rather acceptable. It is really provocative since it presents the context of noble education, humanity, nationality, spirituality and analytical presentation of past memories, present problems and future way out at a time.

I am impressed with Dr. Chapagain in a very short period. His devotion, sadhana and willingness have encouraged me. I am sure, he is on the quest of knowledge with all his devotion. Shraddhawan Lavate Gyanam. His simple, polite and cultured manner has also touched me. The test of intellectuals ultimately lies on politeness and manners.

Today, we are not in need of education alone but Human Value Based Education exerting a pull on man to truth, peace and service. Education centered only on physical development is like our physical body but human value based education is our heart and hence the life power. Without heart and life power, physical body no more functions. It is a matter of pride for us to have such book. Focusing on the very issues and converging spiritual wisdom with positivity and development, Dr. Chapagain, who is the first Nepali to receive PhD in Appreciative Inquiry, has brought this book among us.

I got an opportunity to go through Manav Mulyama Adharit Shiksha (Human Value Based Education) written assimilating the demand of time by our intellectual friend Dr. Chandi Chapagain.  I wish him all success and the best for fulfilling demand of the time.
- Gita Rana, Principal, Galaxy Public School and President, NPABSON

I observed and studied the draft of Manav Mulyama Adharit Shiksha very deeply. Subject matters captured by the books are good and praiseworthy. The collection of Suktis from Chanakya Niti, Sukra Niti, Bhartiharika Shatkatraya, Shreemad Bhagawat Gita etc has made this book even more readable, thinkable and thought provoking. It is very useful both for intellectuals and students. Hence, I must thank and bless Dr. Chandi P Chapagain with Ashirashi.
- Dr. Swami Prapannacharya

Having acquired knowledge, as said in Buddhism, Dr. Chapagain attempts to teach the students with spiritual wisdom, messages of peace and progress through Manav Mulyama Adharit Shiksha. We must always be active for enhancing human values and offering the people with the token of prayer, preaching, meditation, good feelings and creations.
- Dr. Anoja, Head Nun, Sulakshan Kirti Bihar

Collecting nectar from thousands of flowers, bees make honey which is hygienic, tasty and healthy. Like honey, I found this book to be new diet of morality and spiritual offering for human brain, attitude and behavior. I hope, the book will be highly useful for all age groups and specially the students. May name and fame of the writer  Dr. Chandi P. Chapagain, the person rich with  deeper contemplation, good thinking, patient, sweet voice and no ego, go wider. May his proximity to the Supreme soul (Paramatma) increase. I wish him all successes.

If education includes importance and features of culture, human life goes ahead on the path of "Satyam, Shivam Sundaram". For this, we need to identify the elements of value based education along with cultural values, and which brightens and shapes our education system spontaneous. Written on the surroundings of the very issues by Dr. Chandi Prasad Chapagain, Manav Mulyama Adharit Siksha, not to exaggerate, is a piece for overall development of students which enlivens the cultural identity thereby driving them on the way of morality and spirituality.
