"Another great finding is that we humans have a choice in how we mind. Diverse spiritual teachings - especially in their moral force - show the creative alternative to egocentric patterns of minding."
Logos Institute: Mission and Vision
Ashok K. Gangadean
The Founding Vision
The Logos Institute is founded to assist individuals, communities, institutions, cultures, disciplines and nations in the global awakening of life to the living reality of Logos.
This priority is based on research into the primal foundation of reality: life, experience, worldviews, religions, sciences, perspectives, ideologies, cultures...over decades, and grounded in the spectrum of global cultures and worlds through the ages. This research disclosed that when we stand back from any one worldview, perspective or ideology and enter the higher dimensions of the global perspective deeper patterns in human and cultural evolution become evident.
This global perspective across and between worlds reveals that there has been a deep drive in the human condition to encounter and express the missing primal source or ground of all life and experience. But this pervasive struggle to reach the primal origin was typically inhibited and blocked by restrictive patterns of thought and by the localized perspectives, narratives, worldviews and languages that resulted from certain provincial habits of mind.
In this global investigation across millennia it was evident that although the great philosophical and religious cultures attempted to name this primal origin in their provincial languages, the evolution of cultures had not advanced to the horizon in which a global name, a global grammar, and a global technology of mind had matured enough to encounter this primal reality. We use the word ((Logos)) in this global context as the global name for this Primal Reality that is the common source of all worldviews and forms of life. And we use the ((...)) to indicate the higher missing process of minding that signals the awakening of global mind into the grammar of Logos.
The global clarification of ((Logos)) is presented in three volumes: Meditative Reason: Toward Universal Grammar, Between Worlds: The Emergence of Global Reason, and The Awakening of the Global Mind. This research seeks to present the grammar of the missing global Logos, and to demonstrate why the awakening of human life to the direct encounter of ((Logos)) is the highest priority for human welfare and flourishing.
The global perspective of entering the space of ((Logos)) calls for the awakening of the global mind, and this development recognizes that humanity has been in a deep and difficult transformation from egocentric patterns of being human to more integral and holistic patterns of dialogical life. Here it is seen that egocentric patterns of living are the primary source of all sorts of human pathologies – both personal and corporate, individual and cultural.
Accordingly, the most pressing priority facing human life today is the individual and collective transformation from egocentric ways to the more mature and healthy patterns of dialogical life – the awakening of the global mind in entering into the shared space of ((Logos)).
The Mission of the Logos Institute is to foster the awakening of the people of the planet on a global scale; to clarify, articulate, ignite and facilitate the awakening of the global mind in every dimension of the human condition – across the spectrum of cultures and worldviews, across the diverse disciplines and fields of experience and education, for diverse people and situations. To this end the Logos Institute focuses on educating the people on the living reality of ((Logos)), and on the fundamental skills and patterns of thinking that bring us into the integral and holistic ways of life that are essential for human individual and corporate flourishing. This awakening and transforming education aims at cultivating higher nonviolent ways of life on the planet in which the diversity of human worlds and perspectives may mutually flourish together with our sustaining ecologies.
