Chapter 4: The Program to fulfill Basic Human Aspirations
Human Consciousness and Animal Consciousness
Giving all priorities to physical facilities only or to live solely on the basis of physical facilities may be termed as ‘Animal consciousness’.
⇒ For animals, the physical facility is necessary as well as complete – whereas for human beings it is necessary but not complete.
⇒ Working only for physical facilities is living with Animal Consciousness.
⇒ Working for the right understanding as the first priority followed by relationship and physical facilities implies living with Human Consciousness.
⇒ There is a need for transformation from Animal Consciousness to Human Consciousness. It can be accomplished only by working for the right understanding as the first priority.
⇒ This transformation from Animal Consciousness to Human Consciousness forms the basis for human values and values-based living. This is the prime objective of the present course.
