“All expressions in this universe,” Sarkar wrote in 1985, “are divided into three strata – physical, psychic and spiritual – and not a single stratum among them is unimportant or negligible. For the integrated development of this world, we want all three of these strata to be properly developed, and their speed to be accelerated. Not a single stratum is unimportant – neither the physical stratum, nor the psychic stratum, nor the spiritual stratum.” PROUT thus envisions a uniquely different society, a balanced society in which cultural development and self-realization are as important, if not more so, than material development. Development is all three spheres of existence will ensure a healthy society capable of meeting all true human needs.
Neo-humanism is a worldview that extends the humanistic vision of one human society to include all living beings. Following in the tradition of native peoples, the neo-humanist vision is to see all life as sacred and all beings as manifestations of one, integral whole. This vision includes forming a deep relationship between human beings and the world in which we live. Neo-humanism rejects all isms and dogmas that divides people from one another and from nature. It is fundamentally spiritual in nature, because it acknowledges the inherent unity in all life and the spiritual essence at the core of all beings.
