મારી જિંદગીનો સારામાં સારો અને મહત્વનો અનુભવ એટલે લાઈફ ક્લાસ

લાઈફ ક્લાસ વિષે પ્રતિભાવો :

શિક્ષણની સાથે જ આવા લાઈફ કલાસીસ થવા જોઈએ.

આ માટે જરૂરથી પ્રયત્ન કરજો. અમે પણ સહકાર માટે તત્પર જ છીએ.

ઉત્તમ, યાદગાર, ચિરસ્મરણીય અનુભવ

ઉત્તમ, યાદગાર, ચિરસ્મરણીય અનુભવ. ખુબ સુંદર, અદભૂત વ્યક્તિત્વ! ઊંચી પ્રતિભા છતાં સરળ વ્યક્તિત્વ.

ખુબ પ્રભાવશાળી વક્તવ્ય

ખુબ પ્રભાવશાળી વક્તવ્ય. સેલ્ફ કોન્ફિડન્સ જાળવવાની રીતો જણાવી તે ખુબ ગમી. જીવનને ઉપયોગી એવું માર્ગદર્શન મળ્યું.

"હું કાંઇક કરીશ જ" એ વાક્ય હંમેશા યાદ રહેશે

તમારા શબ્દો હૃદયમાં ખરેખર ઘર કરી ગયા છે. "હું કાંઇક કરીશ જ" એ વાક્ય હંમેશા યાદ રહેશે અને એના થકી હું મારો વિકાસ કરી શકીશ.

The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible – and achieve it, generation after generation.

  Editor's Note

Oasis has reached more than 10,000 youths through IYLDP - LIFE Classes in less than 2 months of it's launch. With that, IYLDP is entering a next level where year round LIFE Classes are being organized.

The concept of LIFE Classes is appreciated well by many educational institutes across Gujarat.

The hope is high and our determination grows stronger with every class.

For more details about IYLDP and LIFE Classes, please contact through email on or contact at Oasis office.

  Education For Learning

Education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change because life is not what happens to us.

It is what we do with what happens to us. Has our education fulfilled the purposes that it is required to?

"We want the education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one's own feet."

(compiled from quotations by Great People)
