Leikskólinn Sælukot offers a fun and educational program for children ages 12 months to 6 yrs. old by creating a safe and nurturing environment in beautiful surroundings based on the principles of neo-humanist education.
(The philosophy Neo-Humanism was introduced in 1981 by the Indian philosopher Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar (Shrii Shrii Anandamurti)(1921-1990). His definition of Neo-Humanism is: “When the underlying spirit of humanism is extended to everything, animate and inanimate, in this universe – this is Neo-Humanism. This Neo-Humanism will elevate humanism to universalism, the cult of love for all created beings of this universe.”
Sarkar’s motto for Neo-Humanist Education is — ”Knowledge is that which leads to liberation”.
CARDINAL HUMAN VALUES
“In our education system, emphasis should be given to moral education and the inculcation of idealism–not only philosophy and traditions. The practice of morality should be the most important subject in the syllabus at all levels. The sense of universalism should also be awakened in the child. Etiquette and refined behavior are not enough.
Real education leads to a pervasive sense of love and compassion for all creation.” –P.R. Sarkar (Founder of NHE)
Universal cardinal human values are basic to Neo-humanist Education. Ethics form the basis of an emotionally -balanced, self-confident, self-disciplined, integrated and discriminating individual who is well adjusted and able to form joyful relationships and take responsibility in society.Universal cardinal human values, which are oriented towards creating mental harmony, include principles of relating to society (Yama)
and principles for personal integration (Niyama).
