The knowledge of the progressive procedure of the cultivation of dhyanas, and generation of the celestial bodies of the abbot and deities provide a very value based education to the students enabling them to perceive the world with ethical binding. The philosophy of the great completion- the mahanishpatti, the identification of awareness with development of the perspectives of future, past and present applying complete neutrality with respect to their state is taught to them in a very critical way, developing the sensibility among the students to seek further research possibilities in the related fields. The knowledge of the introduction to tantra with respect to the generation stage of the deities proceeding towards the completion stage allows the students to see the unfolding of the mysteries of the whole world and its functionality in the scientific way. Having received training in such intensive philosophical domain, the students will seek opportunities in the fields of higher education and research, translation studies and teaching.
