Humanity has stopped thinking reasoning and judging. And the human intellect remains emaciated Educational institutions merely focus on providing knowledge, intelligence with no plan or program to develop the intellect. The world today is all intelligence, no intellect.
The loss of intellect has left humans with stress, depression and disease. And a world infested with vandalism, militancy and terrorism. Humanity now faces an urgent need to rehabilitate, reconstruct the fallen intellect.
You are humans. You have the ability to rebuild the intellect. Rise above the crisis. Regain the sovereign status of the human species.
Parthasarathy is an internationally acclaimed philosopher with a multi-disciplined academic base including post-graduation from London University. He has researched for over 'sixty years on the state of human beings and focused on the imperative need to revive, rehabilitate the human intellect. His resolve has emerged into four distinct avenues of service:
Parthasarathy founded the Academy in January 1988 in Malavli Hills, 108 kms from Mumbai, India. It offers three-year residential courses designed to build intellectual ability and instil higher values of life in students from India and abroad.
His discourses on intellectual development have captivated audiences the world over for more than forty years. And have been widely acclaimed by prestigious universities, institutions and organisations.
Parthasarathy has been a distinguished resource of the Young Entrepreneur’s Organisation (YEO), Young Presidents' Organisation (YPO), World Presidents' Organisation (WPO), World Economic Forum and several multinational corporations.
He has published Ten books which present ancient philosophical teachings and wisdom of thinkers from the East and West. Two of them have earned bestselling status.
The human species alone, none other, needs an intellect for its survival. Hence it is blessed with this wondrous equipment to think, to reason and decide its course of action through life. Not realising the vital role the intellect plays in this world, humans have ignored and neglected it to a point of grievous fault.
Intellect is not intelligence. Intelligence is acquired from external agencies which renders one well informed, knowledgeable. But that does not build, improve one's intellect. The intellect has to be developed by oneself. There is no plan or program in the world today to develop the human intellect. The world has been imprudent in merely promoting and procuring different branches of knowledge. And people are left with a barren intellect.
The consequences of such negligence are immeasurable. Humanity is tom apart into divisions and demarcations. It has engendered bitterness and hatred, militancy and terrorism everywhere. The human race is now becoming an endangered species threatened with extinction.
You have the capacity and the expertise to avert this crisis. Arise. Save yourselves. Save the world.
