Education in its etymological sense is a systematic and sustained effort to encourage and develop the best of one’s latent physical, mental spiritual qualities. It sets in a process of evolution wherein the lower and crudifying animalistic propensities are gradually eliminated and humans become fully human, and whom we may then describe as divine.
Shrii P R Sarkar redefined the boundaries of education by applying a larger framework based on the philosophy of Neo Humanism Neo Humanism basically means to encompass love for the whole of creation through a realisation that everything is a manifestation of the creator.
Neo-Humanistic education therefore emphasizes the importance of developing the whole child in order that he/she may realize their highest potential through developing a sense of social responsibility and spirit to the universal family.
According to Ananda Marga concept, ‘Education’ means:-
E-Enlargement of mind.
(Discipline, Etiquette, Smartness, Morality, English, Pronunciation)
U- Universal outlook.

N- Nice temperament.
