Vast Self is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose sole purpose is to demonstrate that peace and happiness is a natural state to all World inhabitants. How are we different from the thousands of other noble nonprofits? We are here to expose and eliminate the single reason responsible for the existence of all personal and World problems. What is the single root reason responsible for all personal and World problems? People are not aware that their senses and perceptions are deceived by certain unknowing. The conventional approach performed by thousands of amazing people and organizations are necessary and noble; however, as disturbing as it may sounds, they will never run out of work. Human history is proof. If we genuinely desire permanent peace and happiness we need to recognize the single reason currently preventing peace and happiness and causing all the misery and unhappiness in the World. This task requires putting more effort into correct education that allows all individuals an opportunity to recognize and eliminate the root reason. New problems and sufferings won't be created once the root reason is recognized. Only then all of the Earth inhabitants can enjoy the natural peace and happiness that was denied by this single cause.
“No one can stop a tree from growing painful thorns by trimming off the branches one by one, but by taking out the root”.
We aim to provide educational tools that will serve all individuals, and organizations seeking permanent solutions to personal and World problems. These tools will expose the single reason responsible for the existence of all personal and World problems ranging from dissatisfaction, negative emotions, hunger, pain, substance addiction, violence, bullying, animal exploitation, slavery, racism, injustice, suffering, greed, crime, war, etc. Once the reason is recognized, a person is no longer capable of creating new negativities and sufferings; instead, that person feels fulfilled and is now an instrument of good in the World. The peaceful and harmonious state naturally becomes self-evident once the single reason that obstructed our peace and happiness is fully recognized and removed.
Goals are to:
- permanently end all personal and World problems
- assist everyone in recognizing the single reason responsible for all problems
- provide custom visual tools that are solutions to any specific problem
- build museums of wisdom that demonstrate this mission
- share this mission with members of the UN, and other World Peace organizations
- end Israeli - Palestinian conflict, and all wars
- end Animal exploitation & promote Vegan options
- bring this to the world’s attention

What is the Solution to All World Problems?
Education needs to address the discrepancy of how things appear to exist and how they exist.
The current educational system assumes that our common perceptions are accurate. Over 1900 years ago, Nagarjuna provided the most profound insight that demonstrated the invalidity of human perception. In a nutshell, humans incorrectly perceive all living beings, things, and themselves as having own-being. Meaning, everything that appears to us seems to have own-self, but in reality, we don't exist that way.
Nagarjuna proved that all living beings, ourselves, and other phenomena exist without own-being. Only what is a singular entity capable of establishing itself by own core nature, in own right has own-being. Nothing can exist that way as no living being or a thing can exist without parts and causes. All of us are one-seamless-being without a trace of own-being except for ignorance that belives otherwise. Our ignorance deceives our senses making everyone, and everything appears as another being having own-self.
It turns out that not understanding how things exist is the only reason we experience problems and negativities. Every single person and World problem starts with this ignorance.
Schools that reinforce the baseless view are detrimental as inadvertently they promote division, competition, that leads to fear, hatred, racism, bullying, greed, and all kinds of power abuse, including war. Consequently, our current private affairs, business practices, government, law enforcement, and military excursions cause further damage to us, the World and all its inhabitants.
We need to get in touch with reality of how everything exist by exposing people to it, only then can we actually see improvement in all areas of our lives.
Maintains all living beings and objects have their own-beings (aka ego) as natural and final reality to all. All education from this point forth is detrimental.
Future of Education
Points to the absence of own-being in all living beings and objects (aka no ego). Demonstrates that absence of own-being is a natural and final reality to all. Proves that our current perceptions of multiplicity are mistaken.
All future decisions are made harmoniously with equality towards all living beings who are recognized as the same self, which is selfless.
