Ananda Marga Of Madison - Spirituality and Social Change

Spirituality and Social Change

Unique to this yoga path, is the emphasis on transformation of society. P.R. Sarkar, not only taught the spiritual philosophy underlying tantra yoga and communicated its advanced practices, but created a unique socio-economic philosophy called PROUT or Progressive Utilization Theory. He saw the detrimental sides of both capitalism and communism and offered, through PROUT, an alternative approach through which the limited resources of the physical world could be shared with all in an equitable manner.
