Value Based Education

Ten Universal Global Good Human Values by ALDM Nepal

ALDM has several experience of delivering value education in different colleges and schools.

It has published a book "Human Value Based Education" (Human Friendly Education in the Periphery of Spiritual Science, Moving from Positive to Spiritual Innovation for the Surrounding Development of Students). Please see the cover page, content, and the opinion made by different scholars on the book in the next part of this Web - "Publication / New Books".

Why is Value Based Education Needed?

The realization of Value Based Education (VBE) has become stronger in last few decades globally. The negative forces like selfishness, hatred, terrorism, individualism, violence, intolerance, etc. have now become day-to-day problems in the world. The phenomena such as family breakdown, growth of negative attitude and spread of health hazards like drugs and HIV/AIDS seem to be escalating worldwide, which have now terrified humanity.

Value-Based Education is supernatural education that seeks the quality of whole uplifting humanity above what education can. It is different from common education. Education opens up our mind but Value-Based Education gives us purity of heart too. Education provides us with skills but VBE provides us sincerity. Education extends our relationship with the world but VBE links us both the world and with our own family too. Education makes our living better but VBE makes our life better. Education teaches us to compete with others but VBE encourages us to be complete. Education makes us a good professional but VBE makes us a whole human. Education takes us to the top but VBE takes the whole society to the top. Education gives us capacity of better learning but VBE gives us the tool for a deeper understanding. Education gives us anna (cereal) but VBE provides us ananda (pleasure). Education may bring limitations but VBE is for liberation. After all, right education means- "Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye”- meaning knowledge is what helps us to attain liberation.

VBE is a need of modern society because our lives have become miserable. The quantity of education has considerably increased, but the quality has decreased. Why? The number of educated people has reached at a high level, but murder, hatred, and selfishness have spread out like forest fire. Why? Many institutions are opened, but only few noble people produced. Why? Degrees are available for all, but the dignity has gone down. Why? Trained people are produced from many institutions, but sincere people are very few. Why? Many books are written; much research is done; many professional achievements are attained, but humanity is threatened. Therefore, we need Value Based Education.

The rate of suicide is going up even among the young students in our society. One of the very common factors responsible for this is over pressure on students to get the higher marks in their exams and to find a good job ultimately. It is for sure a very unhealthy and unethical competition. It is not only limited to a school level education. Several suicide cases occur even at top level academic institutions worldwide. The highest purpose of education is now either disregarded or may be forgotten. The Vedas say - "Etat Desh Prasutasya Sakasat Agrajanman, Swam Swam Charitram Shiksheran Prithivyam Sarva Manava..." It means that people who are born in this part of the earth should enlighten the entire world by presenting the example of their own character. (C.M. Yogi)

Human Value Based Education uses the "Positive- cum- Spiritual Inquiry Action Cycle" for human and humanity development. This cycle is not only applicable for value education but also applicable to development, business, holistic health and all. This is moving from Appreciative to Generative Inquiry for sustaining change. Detail of this cycle can be seen from the earlier portion of this web titled "Appreciative to Generative Inquiry".
