The Spirit of Building a Learning Institute:  Managing Self-Reliance (Follow your conscience, manage things and have joy)

"Rules, Work, Courtesy" Academic Principle: Managing Self-Reliance

The motive of the founder, Gunzo Fukuhara, to establish a private school was to set an aim in life directly from childhood to the prime of life wherein education, having uniform intellectual principles and results injected to the child devoid of anxieties of non-human education, values the growth development of the individual character. Therefore, the ideal building of an educational institute is to construct a general school which aims to offer education with consistency from kindergarten to university.

That spirit is “education by the people for the people”. Gunzo Fukuhara’s ideal education derived from his educational experience is as Socrates’ statement that [originally education should not be conducted as an occupation but that it should be conducted by a teacher who feels that it is his humane mission.]
Also, it is that a teacher should exert himself to teaching throughout his life and that the spirit of our private school’s teacher should be as the educational spirit of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (a Swiss educational reformer) which is memorialized on an epigraphy.

Gunzo Fukuhara himself, being very aware of the human immaturity, felt far from his own ideal teacher image. However, he thought an idea is an idea and that he would live to incarnate the idea consistently and find the significance in the process of the formation of the human being and constantly was diligent about this as his mission in life. There is a Spirit of Building a Learning Institute at this school.

Concerning the Academic Principle: Managing Self-Reliance

Managing Self-Reliance is an expression created from abundant educational experience through Gunzo Fukuhara’s life. The meaning of this expression is profound and will be of great profit to students who study here as part of their life training.

“Self-Reliance” is casting a light on the road through your own acts and intentions which will correct the injustices of self-interests and egocentric opinions. “Managing” is doing something that is virtuous which puts you on the path of intelligence.

Lao-tzu stated that one should “condemn inaction and teach silence” which shows circumstances of freedom that by reading books one can know the path and by respecting others one can learn and follow the “affection” of Buddha, the “virtue” of Confucius and the “love” of Christ.

If we act on these simple words concretely, then we will be able to “judge our selves”. We will be able to manage any kind of state of affairs by not doing anything wrong. The power to deal with things in life is by correct self-reliance and wisdom, and to regard everyday life as your learning studio wherein you can sophisticate your self-introspection.
