A Neohumanistic system of puppet stories to aid communication, self-esteem, ethical attitudes and personal safety. Each puppet has a distinct and consistent role. One is the learner. Another represents ignorance and thoughtlessness. Another puppet is the twinge of conscience. Lastly is the wise puppet that offers the cause and effect of the learner’s actions. As the children are introduced to each story, they begin to translate these same roles in real life.
A system of storytelling that incorporates drawing to motivate children in their early writing efforts. In one story, children may fly with a balloon to save an injured fairy. Afterward, the children draw the balloon. As drawing a balloon resembles the letters O, P, and Q, children are practicing these skills in a meaningful and fun way. By using this system of storytelling with drawing children accelerate in their writing, storytelling, and drawing.
Neohumanism was presented as an alternative paradigm in 1982 by Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar for the “liberation of human intellect.” Acharya Shambhushivananda has been the spokesperson for the Neohumanist Education movement for the past few decades. As one of the closest students of Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar and as the Chancellor of Ananda Marga Gurukula, the global Neohumanist Education network, he has carried the message of Neohumanism to scores of countries around the globe. Acaryaji’s elaboration of Neohumanism expresses a deep vision and a viable alternative for today’s world. This compendium is a small sample of his thoughts on diverse subjects and a window into the thoughts of Shrii Sarkar.
