Navaveda is the Free School of Mirapuri. It is a school for the Mirapuri children which is guided by Mirakali (www.Mirakali.net) who lives and works in Mirapuri, the City of Peace and Futureman in Europe (Italy). Navaveda helps the children to keep in touch with their soul and to unite inner experience with outer knowledge and understanding in an integral consciousness. At Navaveda the teaching expresses itself in a wide freedom and its content is explored with the children in harmony with their needs and aspirations as an expression of their individualities and unique characters.

The school-experience in Mirapuri protects and encourages the childhood and youth with all its energy, ease, visions of the future and future-wideness, so that the whole life is filled with happy trust in the beauty, the good and the meaning of life. Creative joy and the experience of freedom through freedom is the golden treasure of Navaveda, and the happy laughing of the children and the light in their eyes are the rich reward for all that work at Navaveda: the children, the young and the adults.
Navaveda is the educational action of Mirapuri and Miravillage for children of all ages. Its activities are linked to M.I.R.A and the New Age Seminars. Navaveda also incorporates Navaguha (the kindergarden section of Navaveda) and the Miramour – Project for orphan children. The aim of Navaveda is to encourage perpetual renewal and growth of consciousness in freedom and joy, to be able to always see and experience in a new and unexpected way and to expand one’s capacities without limits – in short: to preserve and live the spring of eternal youth.
‘Youth does not depend on the small number of years one has lived, but on the capacity to grow and progress. To grow is to increase one’s potentialities, one’s capacities; to progress is to make constantly more perfect the capacities that one already possesses. Old age does not come from a great number of years but from the incapacity or the refusal to continue to grow and progress. I have known old people of twenty and young people of seventy. As soon as one wants to settle down in life and reap the benefits of one’s past efforts, as soon as one thinks that one has done what one had to do and accomplished what one had to accomplish, in short, as soon as one ceases to progress, to advance along the road of perfection, one is sure to fall back and become old.
One can also teach the body that there is almost no limit to its growth in capacities or its progress, provided that one discovers the true method and the right conditioning. This is one of the many experiments which we want to attempt in order to break these collective suggestions and show the world that human potentialities exceed all imagination.’ (Mira Alfassa).
