I had 20 years of regular school education - no wonder I am sick and tired of schools. As the distance in time grows, I seem to evaluate most of my education very low credit and a complete waste of time. Most "knowledge" I was forced to learn within the framework of school systems turned out to be outdated, biased and hardly of any use in life in general. My real education was outside of school...

Short History

After studying philosophy at a number of institutions, I started a three-year long PhD. program in (western) philosophy at the Central European University (CEU) in 2001. My main interest was in Metaphysics and the Theory of Knowledge where I was mainly learning about contemporary metaphysics and contemporary epistemology. One of my possible aims was to create a comparative study of transcendentalism (metaphysical idealism) with regard to both Eastern and Western philosophy. This area has a lot of connections with Eastern thought as I see it. Unfortunately I could not meet the course requirements and had to leave the program [« go there]

I received scientific and traditional education for four years at the Gate of Dharma Buddhist College in Budapest, where I specialized on the study of Buddhist philosophy and Eastern thought. I also studied philosophy of religion specializing on Indian culture and Indian religions. I wrote my thesis on Hindu Tantra. [« go there]

- As a teacher of the Gate of Dharma Buddhist College I was giving lectures between 1995-2003. [« go there]

I have studied Cultural Anthropology at the Eötvös Lóránd University of Sciences, Faculty of Arts (ELTE BTK) specializing on the anthropology of religion - regionally concentrating on Middle- and South-Asia, more specifically India, Nepal, and Tibet. Asian religious phenomena lay in the focus of my studies (especially the intersections of Buddhism and Hinduism), therefore my research area is the religious practice and belief of Indian and Nepalese culture. I wrote my thesis on The Cult of Siva. [« go there]

- As a lecturer of the Cultural Anthropology Department I gave lectures between 1997-98. [« go there]

I have studied English Literature and Linguistics at the Eötvös Lóránd University of Sciences, Faculty of Arts (ELTE BTK) specializing on British literature and British culture. Due to my deep involvement in philosophy I was more attracted to literature and especially mysticism and mystic poetry. Therefore I have specialized on the British mystics, such as John Milton and William Blake. I wrote my thesis on The Visionary Poetry of William Blake. [« go there]

I was teaching English as a foreign language from 1995, starting at the Danubius Language School (1995-1999), where I participated in a language teacher training course in 1988. In 1997 I participated in the post graduate education of teachers, a part of the teacher retraining PHARE-Program. In 1998 I took part in the implementation and testing process of the ECL Language Certificate supervised by the European Community. In 1998 however, I was forced into creating my own Language Teaching Enterprise, and thus the Language Teaching Educational and Tertiary Corporation was formed, which was operating between 1998-2003.

I underwent a professional computer skills training course at the FutureSync Studios in 1998. The training involved software and hardware engineering and basic programming. I also have my own cyber studio, now called Post Logic Studio. I have specialized in computer based graphic design and web design. [« go there]
