मन एक कंप्यूटर है जो जानकारी को सम्मिलित करता है और 'जीवन' उसके कार्यक्रम को तैयार करता है। पहली संस्करण कब, कहाँ और कैसे हुआ, यह निश्चित नहीं किया जा सकता क्यों कि मनुष्य कार्यक्रम को तैयार नहीं करता। आनेवाले अगले संस्करण को भी परिशुद्धतया से निश्चित नहीं किया जा सकता। कई पाठशालाएँ, विश्वविद्यालय और संस्थाएँ हैं जो तैयार किये गये कार्यक्रम को सिखाते हैं- यानि प्रारंभिक और परिष्कृत कार्यक्रम को और यह सिर्फ़ जानकारी है जो ज्ञानियों से घोषित की गयी भ्रामिक संसार को बनाये रखते हैं। एक संस्था, जो भ्रामिक संसार को बाँटती है उसका अस्तित्व नहीं हुआ है और अब उसकी ज़रूरी है क्यों कि जो यथार्थ है यानि विचारहीन और समयहीन 'अब' को वह प्रकट करेगा।

Academy refers to a place where knowledge is taught, preserved and built upon. Life has prepared knowledge meticulously and provided means with intelligence far beyond the scope of man. During this development and sophistication of knowledge life has, however, given insights that the knowable is not life. These were the enlightened sages, while the thinkers, scientists and the philosophers were the knowledgeable - and still are.
Academies that promote knowledge are one too many in the world, and the last thing man needs is another. Academies in general explain what is already known and accepted to be real. The academies have the support of the knowledgeable elite who are proof for their authenticity and reality. The proclamation by the enlightened that the world is illusory is neither given a thought nor considered a reality.
An academy that explains the insights of the enlightened sages that the world, man and mind, including time, are illusory does not exist. An academy that releases man from both the temporary joy and temporary anguish of daily life is much needed. An academy that preserves for generations this wisdom of what life is and invites man to live it is what the Academy of Absolute Understanding stands for and is.
As part of their development, men, women and children have been nurtured on the teachings, philosophies, doctrines, dogmas and opinions of holy men, visionaries, philosophers and educationists for countless generations. Peace, happiness and enlightenment have been and still are the rewards most fervently desired, but have not happened. Man has been unwavering in his pursuit of these and has given his life and substance to realise them. He is yet to find happiness or release from the anguish of the life he thinks he experiences on a daily basis.
A moment, which is significant, and the moments that follow become history. One such moment is ‘now’, during which Life, with utter precision, is gifting mankind a profound and unique step in its evolutionary process: ‘Academy of Absolute Understanding’. This academy will share detailed explanations that every teaching, philosophy, doctrine, dogma and opinion is illusory and they cannot have through them peace, happiness and enlightenment. They need to be illusory as the world is illusory, as proclaimed by the enlightened. Understanding of the illusory nature of the world, man and mind is, therefore, paramount, and would reveal enlightenment and a release from the anguish of daily life.
Very rarely are words of wisdom, directly spoken to mankind, preserved without being filtered through interpreters, translators and sundry interlocutors. The Academy needs to set up a library of books and visual and audio recordings of wise words spoken by Dr Shankar. The Academy needs man-power and modern technology too. The detail and depth of Dr Shankar’s understanding is without precedent - and more will follow. The need and urgency to archive wisdom for humanity cannot be overemphasised.
