Our Mission

Religious Moral & Spiritual Growth

Sanathana- Eternal Dharma- Righteousness Sanatana dharma duties take into account the person’s spiritual (constitutional) identity as atman and are thus the same for everyone. According to the notion of Sanatana-Dharma, the eternal and intrinsic inclination of the living entity (atman) is to perform seva (service). Sanatana-dharma, being transcendental, refers to universal and axiomatic laws that are beyond our temporary belief systems.



" May good thoughts come to us from everyside, pure, unobstructed, overflowing"
Rig Veda, 89.1


Dharma is sometimes translated as ‘religion’ but that is not exactly the meaning. Dharma actually means ‘that which one cannot give up’ and ‘that which is inseparable from oneself’. The warmth of fire is inseparable from fire; therefore warmth is called the dharma, or nature, of fire. Similarly, sanatana-dharma means eternal occupation.’ We at Prayukas Cultural Academy feel Sanatana Dharma needs to be explained properly and in detail for everyone today to understand, particularly for those coming from the background of western education as they may have many misconceptions already.

Course Curriculum

Slokas

01

In Sanatana Dharma, making sloka chanting a part of your everyday life is said to bring immense benefits on all levels. As slokas are spiritual energy forms manifested in words, they increase positive vibrations and use affirmations to bring about phenomenal changes in our lives. At Prayukas Cultural Academy we understand that slokas help to increase Chaitanya (Divine Consciousness) in the atmosphere, awakening of Bhav (Spiritual emotion) and alleviating obstacles from negative energies.

Stories

02

The Sanathana Dharma Puranas contain narratives about the history of the Universe from creation to destruction and the genealogies of kings, heroes, sages, and deities. Some of the Puranas are discourses on cosmology, geography and Hindu philosophy. The Puranic Stories are universal, convey meaning and purpose that help us understand ourselves better and find commonality with others. Prayukas Cultural Academy feels this not only makes individuals aware of their rich cultural heritage, but also develops in them a love for learning our history. Stories aren’t just about morals; they are also thought provoking.

Cultural Practices

03

Culture, tradition and customs play an important role for a civilization and the character of its citizens and society. It helps in striking the balance with Mother Nature, conservation of natural resources and respecting each other. Prayukas Cultural Academy aims to teach our future generations, how we have to do it and how we can conserve it, respect it and how cultural practices became tradition. When we live in a clan, tribe, group or a society we have to follow some set of rules, principles, policies or laws which become customs. Therefore without our culture, traditions and customs we are a complete disconnect with our soul. It’s good to know about your culture, tradition and customs and follow them fully everywhere possible. Every culture's traditions & customs are made keeping a lot of things in mind, there is a reason & logic behind that, we at Prayukas Cultural Academy emphasize in explaining the “WHYs” to avoid following it blindly.

Bhajans

04

Prayukas Cultural Academy offers classes on Bhajans/ Namavali/ Aarthi in the 54-week comprehensive program. When you sing spiritual songs they can help to quiet the mind so that the heart can open to the divine, allowing us to taste the blissful reality that is our true nature. Rather than being a performance in which the audience listens to musicians, it is a participatory spiritual practice in which everyone is encouraged to sing and express their inner joy. Devotion, not musical ability, is the most important aspect of bhajans/ namavalis/ aarthis. The entire universe is made of rhythms. When sounds are in harmony, there is music; non harmonious sounds create chaos. Similarly, we at PCA feel when there is rhythm or harmony in life, the heart blossoms.
