Jeevanvidya is a philosophy of life and an art of successful living. It aims at achieving material prosperity and attaining spiritual progress through relentless efforts, on the basis of circumstances as they stand.
Jeevanvidya philosophy defines GOD as intrinsically automatic, self-regulatory, natural, systematic order, endowed with the universal laws of nature.
Jeevanvidya gives equal emphasis to material development as well as psycho-spiritual progress of human beings. Traditionally, spirituality has neglected and discouraged material development since it was considered to be a hurdle in the path of spiritual progress towards Self-realization. Further, people who were drawn to spirituality often became escapists from the world or turned into fatalists. Satguru Shri Wamanrao Pai rejected this negative world-view and asserted that both material development as well as psycho-spiritual progress were absolutely essential if Man is to lead a successful and happy life. In fact, Jeevanvidya philosophy emphasizes that, "Just as a bird needs two wings to fly happily in the sky, similarly man too needs the two wings of worldly life as well as spiritual life to dwell blissfully and gracefully in the ‘sky’ of life.
Jeevanvidya believes in nondualism linked to the Advaita Vedanta-tradition. It also believes in free will and strongly advocates "None else but Man himself creates his own destiny through his good or evil thoughts, speech and physical actions (Karma). The destiny so created, becomes responsible for his sorrow and pain or pleasure and happiness".
