We could dismiss the important questions of life if we adopt a carefree attitude. Hakuna matata! These questions don't disappear if we turn our back to them, do they? Looking closely, we find that a question arises in us when the "tradition" in which we live, is unable to give us satisfactory answers. Question indicates logical flaw, loophole or deadlock in the tradition. Tradition is collective expression of all human beings, at the level of doing (karya), at the level of behaviour (vyavhar), at the level of thoughts (vichar) and at the level of realization (anubhav). It is not easy for everyone to precisely identify one's question. The tradition has lot of momentum and most people would rather flow with it, than question it. The one who questions tradition gets labeled as rebel. It is not easy to live the life of a rebel. Still if the question is genuine and the questioner persists in getting its answer, and takes the responsibility to explore for answers ab-initio, even at the risk of getting excommunicated - then there is provision in existence for its getting answered. Human history can be seen as a continuum interrupted by questions which challenged the tradition. These questions were the seeds for explorations. The discoveries from explorations altered the course of human history and brought about changes in the tradition at the level of doing, at the level of behaviour and at the level of thoughts. We will talk about the level of realization shortly.
The exploration (anusandhan) of Shree A. Nagraj also began from a question on vedic tradition. This exploration resulted into his realization and exposition of Madhyasth Darshan. Madhyasth Darshan claims that humankind does not have the tradition at the level of realization thus far. It puts forth proposals, the study of which can result realization in a human being. Its first proposal is - existence in the form of coexistence is the only reality, which can be understood and realized by human being. Secondly, realization centric living of human being alone can be harmonious. Reality is one, therefore realization is also one. Realization centric living is about reflection of realization at the levels of his thoughts, behaviour and work. There cannot be variety in realizations of human beings - this is the reason, realization centric living of two human beings is mutually complementary at all levels (thoughts, behaviour and work). Realization is not for select few, it is the need and possibility of all human beings.
Tradition is about conformance (anushangiyata), generation to generation. The "generation gap" indicates weakness of tradition. The generation to generation conformance in human beings is achieved not through heredity but through impressions (sanskar). This is the crucial distinction between human beings and animals. Animals are also conscious beings, but they have generation to generation conformance by way of heredity. Animals don't have generation gap! Impressions (sanskar) are those, which result into realization. Realization is the essence of tradition in humankind.
Madhyasth Darshan is a proposal and vision for bringing realization into human tradition. Shree A. Nagraj achieved realization as a result of his exploration, after he had questions on the vedic tradition. The tradition of realization does not require us to follow his footsteps of exploration. Instead it requires us to study what he has accomplished as a result of his exploration. Study (adhyayan) of Madhyasth Darshan is about 'joining' the tradition of realization. One joins the tradition of realization at the level of thoughts first, then one joins at the level of behaviour, then one joins at the level of work - and after the alignment happens at these three levels, the alignment at the level of realization entails. Madhyasth Darshan asserts that tradition of realization does not have any logical flaws, loopholes or deadlocks. The tradition of realization proposed by Madhyasth Darshan is with the promise of liberating whole humankind from questions.
