Centre for the Studies of the Glass Bead Game is intended as a sanctuary for scholars in science, arts and humanities to bring together seekers of the truth in the tradition of Hermann Hesse's Journey to the East and the Glass Bead Game. The centre shall create a simple and inspired ambiance surrounded by the Himalayan mountains and its streams. It would have humble living spaces for discussions, and quiet reflection. The product would be and inspired and inspiring ambiance for scholars where discussion would be based not on where one published, but what one published. By being in the vicinity of many monasteries the centre would give space and ambiance to international seekers to rest, reflect, meditate and inspire discussion towards establishing a saner world, possibly taking us into the realm of post collapse civilisation.
The raised funds shall be used for creating the indicated physical facilities. Such a facility does not exist in the existing institutes and universities.
