Gayatri Chetna Kendra Pune or CKP

Gayatri Consciousness Center as the name portrays is a temple of invoking Gayatri in Mankind. That means a factory of “human refinement, family development, and nation-building”. If one is fit on the spectrum of these 3 areas then it’s a place to be visited and getting benefitted. The sole foundation for achieving the above mentioned is Gayatri, which is “the eternal source of thy willpower that motivates the origin and all activities of the visible and invisible forms of Nature, the root of an impulse of life i.e. the force of life in all living beings originate from its presence…”. That means that Gayatri Pariwar, Pune members are continually putting efforts in all these 3 orbits of “human refinement, family development and nation-building – “let’s call these as 3 social building pillars” to add value to the ecosystem which covers it end to end as part of the 7 andolans/ drives coined by Pandit Sriram Sharma Acharya.

“Upasana, Sadhana and Aradhana”

3 tools have been effective to elevate/achieve 3 social building pillars, as well as 7 andolan/ drives over ages and, are in practices successfully since Gayatri Pariwar is formed.

How one can assimilate knowledge in these 3 tools?

It can be achieved/rendered by practicing different tools/techniques viz Swadhayay, jap, various meditation techniques and by attending various workshops and be a party in various activities too.
