The aim of this course is to understand the human being, nature and existence in a comprehensive manner. To understand the entire existence in a comprehensive manner, one has to start from human being, the one who is going to understand. To understand the human being, one of the core things is to identify the human aspiration and how it can be fulfilled. Thus, the major focus in the first part of this course is to study the human being, the human aspiration and how this aspiration can be fulfilled. Having explored about the human being, we explore into the entire existence of which human being is a part. The existence is nature submerged in space. Nature has four orders: physical order, bio order, animal order and human order. The first three orders are already fulfilling for themselves as well as for the human order. The human order due to lack of right understanding is neither fulfilling for itself nor for the other three orders. But with right understanding, it can be fulfilling. All the four orders of nature are submerged in the space which is ever-present and all-pervading. With right understanding ensured, there is wisdom in the self of the human being, which finally leads to clarity of participation of human being in undivided society and universal human order generation by generation. This clarity helps ensure human conduct in the complete expanse of living of human being
