Congratulations o­n the Independence Day of India

Dear Indian friends!

Global Harmony Association is happy to congratulate you, and through you to all the people of India, with a great date of Independence!

August 15, 1947, India gained Independence from the British Empire as a result of non-violent actions under the leadership of great leader Mahatma Gandhi. This is the greatest event of social harmony in modern history. It made India the world's leader of non-violence from social harmony.

The second such event, which develops Gandhis harmonious spirituality of nonviolence is the presentation in February of this year in Delhi, at International Seminar of teachers, which was organized by IASE Deemed Gandhi University under leadership of his Chancellor Kanakmal Dugar, the first in history global textbook the ABC of harmony.

This event divided human history into two parts: the past, totally ignorant in social harmony, and therefore totally violent, with rare exceptions, and the future, the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment/Education and conscious use of scientific knowledge of social harmony for non-violent, harmonious solutions to all problems of humanity at all levels from local to global, and for the conscious building a new, harmonious, civilization free of social pathologies of industrial civilization. This event pushed India into the world leaders of global harmony if the 21st century.

GHA hopes that India, with honor to fulfill this mission leadership that lifts Gandhis spirituality of nonviolence to a new historical level.

GHA wishes to the people of India, prosperity, peace and brotherhood from conscious harmony based o­n the scientific ABC of Harmony, first presented in your great country with your ancient culture of harmony!

Shri Kanak Mal Dugar


Born in Sardarshahr, Rajasthan o­n 17th July 1942 with a socio-spiritual heritage, to Shri Kanhaiya Lal Dugar who was known as Swami Shri Ramsharan when he took to Sanyas(renunciation), Shri Kanak Mal Dugar is a multifaceted personality. Treading o­n the path of his divine father, he shouldered the responsibility of Education and Social establishments of Swamiji from 1970.


Starting as the member of Executive committee of Gandhi Vidya Mandir, a society formed by his father in 1950 and subsequently as its Vice President in 1973, today he is the Chairman which has established IASE Deemed University having in all 16 institutions comprising Engineering, Ayurveda, Humanities, Women, Education, Veterinary colleges, Agriculture Research Center and several schools. He is working as the Chancellor of the University since 2007.


To widen his network of social service he established Rotary Club in Sardarshahr in 1972 and became its founder President.


Kanak Mal is maintaining the path crafted by Swamiji to inculcate the value based education right from 1951 when no o­ne thought of it, whose vision was that any education if imparted without values would create disharmony in the society. Swamiji inculcated the sense of sacrifice and values amongst the teachers and staff too which is continued by Kanak Mal with special interest.


Due to his deep interest towards Education and Research especially o­n spiritual and social value inherited from his renunciatee father, in 1977 he conducted the archeological survey and rejuvenation of 1500 year old Osia Temple complex in Rajasthan which not o­nly removed the mismanagement and the exploitation by the priests but also revived the socio economic development by the developed tourism. He formed a trust for this movement in 1976 named as Sachchia Mata Trust, Osia where he continued as founder President for 15 years developing self sustainability by making more than 200 rooms for tourists lodging amongst other activities.


Likewise he is associated with several other Social and Spiritual institutions. He has versatile knowledge in socio-cultural and spiritual fields right from Music, Art, Yoga, Hindu scripture Bhagvad Gita to Agriculture (mainly Organic), for which he is practioner and promoter. He is an ardent promoter of Ayurveda too, to revamp the Indian Heritage medical science.


He has been promoting the Gandhian values for self sustainable economy through different social projects and conducting and participating in National and International seminars for Global Peace and Harmony.

Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM), founded in 1950 as a sequel to its founder's dedication to the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi whose assassination spurred a revolution in his heart and soul. His name was Shri Kanhaiya Lal Dugar. Born and brought up in Sardarshahr in the erstwhile princely State of Bikaner in a very distinguished and wealthy family, yet, Shri Kanhaiya Lal Dugar was spiritually inclined since his childhood.

Mr. Dugar's idol was Mahatma Gandhi because of his faith in God, secular approach and 'Vishwa Bandhutwa'. He was in Bombay(now Mumbai) when Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. At that moment of profound grief, he felt as though some supreme power ordained him to dedicate his life in the worship of God through the service of mankind. He then went to Matheran, a nearby hill-station. There he had a dream in which Gandhi ji came out of a hut to bless him whilst he was teaching young children in a hermitage.

Shri Dugar went to Wardha and consulted Acharya Vinoba Bhave and other Gandhians like Kaka Kalelkar, Kishorlal Mashruwala, Krishnadas Jaju, Shriman Narayan Agarwal and Madalsa Ben. For establishing the institution, some of them proposed Delhi , some Wardha, some Jaipur, and so o­n. Finally they looked to Vinobaji who said 'Spread  Light Where It Is The Darkest, Spread Education Were Illitercy Is The Highest'; the reference was obvious - Kanhaiya Lals home town of Sardarshahr , in the starkest desert  region of Rajasthan.

A project was conceptualised there and the name of Gandhi Vidya Mandir was decided. Later o­n, Shri Dugar consulted some other prominent persons like Dada Ravishankar Maharaj, Swami Sharnanand, Hanuman Prasad Poddar, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, Acharya  Tulsi  and Jayaprakash Narayan. Sardar  Patel had promised to lay the foundation stone of Gandhi Vidya Mandir but unfortunately he passed away. Devised as India 's first Rural University University , its foundation stone was laid in 1955, by Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India.

The dream took form and flight. Mr. Dugar, the young 'grihasth', born with a silver spoon in his mouth, volunteered to give up all the luxuries of life, making that ocean of sand his home. He contributed Rs. 5 Lakhs which was a princely fund in those days. Searching for a suitable location near Sardarshahr, he and his colleagues visited an old temple of Shri . Hanuman, and saw some deer frolicking at a distance. They followed them in enchantment  and saw a pair of Shami trees and sat beneath these trees for a prayer. Shri Dugar felt, eureka, this was the site he was searching for. From that day till now, o­n every Tuesday, an all faiths-prayer is held by the entire  fraternity of Gandhi Vidya Mandir.

Shri. Dugar constructed a mud and thatched hut encompassing the two Shami trees. Leaving his huge mansion, he stayed in this hut, named 'OmKutir' (Picture above), with his family for the next twenty years.

The first lesson was delivered by the renowned Saint-poet Shri Viyogi Hari (picturer above) in 1952, to three students. 50 years later, there are about 10,000 students o­n a campus of 1,200 acres. The teachers and students are from all castes, creeds, religions and come from different States of India . The availability of sweet and adequate drinking water in all its wells, in a scarce and saline water zone, is  the proof of blessing from Almighty.

Characteristically, the lessons in social engagement and humanistic values are taught here not just through lectures, but teaching by doing or learning by doing. To inculcate the sense of compassion and altruism, students are taken out to villages, where they mingle with the masses, try to know their woes and needs. They also go over to the places where there are large-scale sufferings, perennially or caused by a disaster. Ours was the first, and probably the o­nly University-team, to reach the Tsunami affected areas of Tamil Nadu and Pond Cherry, earthquake affected areas of Bhuj, Gujarat and flood-hit areas of Barmer in Rajasthan. The Relief Team, with a well-equipped medical van, doctors, paramedical staff and our student-volunteers served the hapless masses in an exemplary manner.

Emphasis is laid o­n inculcating concern for rural upliftment and o­n developing vocational skills and training. Fifty-three villages are served through village-libraries, dispensaries, mobile dispensaries, vocational training centres, agriculture and animal husbandry programmes, drinking water supply programmes and homes for destitute children.

The founder Shri Dugar had renounced his entire wealth for the cause of education and the welfare of society at large, and embraced Sanyas, thence after known as Swami Shri. Ramsharanji. Fifty long years he spent in service of mankind selflessly. He had realized that his end was closing in, and while conversing with someone, he uttered, this body of mine can no longer serve others; rather it needs to be served. He than went into Samadhi and left for his heavenly abode.

Agenda No.1)

Speaking o­n the 1st agenda of the meeting about Independence Day and Gandhi Vidya Mandir IASE University for Universal Brotherhood and Humanism for Harmony in India, Shri Kanak Mal said that Independence starts from liberation from all bondages inside and outside every individual, then the Humanism is liberated and made free from all bondages and slavery.

Regarding Harmony he said harmony begins from own self when o­ne thinks of relinquishing o­nes own rights and fulfill all his duties then o­nly stable and perfect harmony can be achieved in society, nation, world and nature at large. This is the royal way towards harmony in every society. He said that the difference between man and animal is that animal lives for themselves and man lives for others. Man has sense of duty and responsibility to live in harmony with everybody. This is what is the first lesson taught in all schools and colleges of Gandhi Vidya Mandir not o­nly to the students but also to the teachers.

He said that after prolong efforts & struggle with Satyagraha (peaceful and non-violent pursuit for truth) India got Independence and demonstrated that Global harmony can o­nly be achieved through peaceful ways. Gandhiji said, Do justice even to your enemy.

Agenda No. 2 & 3)

As per the agenda No. 2 everybody gave the brief introduction about themselves speaking in their turns and spoke about their vision, mission, experience and action about Global Harmonious Education.

Shri Kanak Mal told how he has got the values of peace and harmony from his father Shri Kanhaiya Lal Dugar who was born in o­ne of the wealthiest and still very harmonious family, renunciated all his wealth and became a monk. He established this society Gandhi Vidya Mandir, which is run maintained by him now with the values taught by his father to work for the larger interest for global peace and harmony.

Dr. Salman Chishty said how right from generations from 11th century they have been safeguarding the spiritual heritage of Sufi saint Hazret Khawaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty in Ajmer Sharif where people coming from whole globe, from all walks of life of various religions are received and blessed in same way. Salman Chisty said right from his college days he was interested in comparative studies of different religion and travelling in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia and finally working in Rajasthan he has realized the thought of Sufism which says that all soul coexist in the world belonging to single lord, single creation. So everyone has to realize that how they have to dedicate their time to serve the world where they have come.

Advocating the vision of Global Harmony Dr Chishty recited the blessed last sermon of Hazret Khawaja Moinuddin Chishty as follows:

Love all and hate none.

Mere talk of peace will avail you naught.

Mere talk of God and religion will not take you far.

Bring out all the latent powers of your being

and reveal the full magnificence of your immortal self.


Be surcharged with peace and joy,

and scatter them wherever you are

and wherever you go.


Be a blazing fire of truth

be a beauteous blossom of love

and be a soothing balm of peace.

With your spiritual light,

dispel the darkness of ignorance;

dissolve the clouds of discord and war

and spread goodwill, peace and harmony among the people


Never seek any help, charity, or favours

from anybody except God.

Never go to the court of kings,

but never refuse to bless and help the needy and the poor,

the widow and the orphan, if they come to your door.


This is your mission, to serve the people

Carry it out dutifully and courageously

Thanking all

With Harmony Best wishes,

Kanak Mal Dugar


Respected Honorary President of the GHA-India Kanak Mal Dugar,

Thank you very much for your brief but very informative minutes of your wonderful meeting GHA-India o­n August 15! I was happy to publish these minutes o­n our website:

I like to invite the GHA members to approve this protocol as fully sharing the GHA mission for three days before August 23, 2011. If there are changes, I'll put them o­n the website.

I am pleased to emphasize that the speech of the GHA-India each member was filled with a deep sense of social harmony for both India and the world. Each performance is original in content and form, particularly interesting is Salman Chistys poetic form. At the same time, in all diversity, all the performances were in harmony as a single orchestra. This is a very important event for GHA as a whole.

Perhaps the GHA-India most important decision was the o­ne to establish a Chair of Harmonious Education in IASE University. That would be the world's first such department. The ABC of Harmony - the world's textbook, which is now preparing GHA - would be its first textbook. I would be happy to head this department, and invite in it the professors from India, Russia, United States and other countries. I could start this work from the beginning of 2012 after the publication of The ABC of Harmony. As you can see, your meeting created a rich opportunities and unfolded the new prospects for the global harmonious education.

The GHA-India, devotees of the values ​​of social harmony, with inspiriting and enthusiasm paved the conscious way for a harmonious civilization. They confirm o­nce again the words of the great American sociologist Margaret Mead: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the o­nly thing that ever has. With this the words of great Nelson Mandela are concordant: Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the World.

The GHA-India now has all the advantages and benefits to join to the office the dozens of new members from among the students and teachers of Gandhi Vidya Mandir and IASE University.

We heartily wish GHA-India success and new world achievements in the way of harmonious education to a harmonious civilization.

Best harmony wishes,

Dr. Leo Semashko,
GHA President,

The ABC of Harmony for World Peace


by Priya Agrawal*


Though World Peace and Harmony are large topics to understand, the ABC of Harmony has presented them in just few pages. The slogans Peace comes from harmony and Harmony gives Happiness has given a wide spectrum to the world. The great thoughts of Abdul Kalam, Vladimir Vernadsky have been presented with a big explanation of it. This book explains us How beautiful is the world in harmony!. The main goal of this book is itself expressed in the title. Many slogans have been used to take the world towards the royal path of harmony. No desires, be utilized is a truth because till the evils like greed, selfishness, desires, idleness, feeling of inequality and intolerance persist in the society conflicts remain unresolved.


When there is beauty in character

There is harmony in the home.

When there is harmony in the home,

There is order in the nation.

When there is order in the nation,

There is peace in the world.


These poetic lines indicate that we are the o­nly o­ne to start for the peace and harmony in the world. We cannot expect others to bring peace unless and until we dont apply the concept of peace. The character, consciousness, will and body language plays a key role in bringing peace in the world. When these basic things of a person are beautiful, then and then o­nly it can create harmony in the house. When there is peace in our home, it will spread in our neighborhood. From neighborhood it will increase to a particular area, from area to the society, from society to the country and finally from country to the whole world.

No o­ne is other, no o­ne is another.


When no o­ne is another, we all are the same of the creation of Nature or the creation of his master. o­ne will be able to understand the meaning of harmony when he will come to know the concept of that, is not the person who died, father of a child? Is he not the husband of his wife? Is he not the dearest to his mother? Is the blood of the person who died and who created the terror different? Cant he start the journey towards the peace from ourselves?


Harmony can also be brought by the new way of looking at the world. The people need to change their way of seeing the world. The way we see the world it looks the same. If we look at the world with hatred the people will look at us with the same behavior. If we give and try to feel the love with the people then we would also gain love from the people.


Harmony of the world is hurt due to war and terrors which take place due to the ego of the person. Many groups of people think that their religion is the best and they create hatred towards other religion. Thus ego is developed in the mind and thus he harms others. Thus it is a necessity to drop down the ego and live with brotherhood.


To put an end to war and terror, first we need to put our heart at peace. We dont need to bring peace, peace itself will bring peace.


There is no need of doing any prayers but o­nly o­ne prayer, "Oh God, Our Lord!! You have created us with love as the best part of your beautiful and good world harmony. Bless us with harmony with nature and each other to leave in peace."
