Bhāratīya Darśanas – An Overview
As human beings march forward in their journey towards progress through newer developments, they need to be guided by a core set of ideals and principles of living. In today’s context, these paradigms of living stem from recent ideas originating from the western world. While we have been making progress, there is also widespread understanding that for every new solution and idea that we discover, we introduce numerous challenges and problems arising out of them. Therefore, this potentially raises the need to look for alternative paradigms for the emerging world order. Indic Knowledge Systems (IKS) can potentially offer ideas for developing new paradigms for the world order. A knowledge of IKS is the first step in this process. The workshop covers one part of the caturdśāvidyāsthānams, the Darśanas. In this workshop, the participants will be exposed to the primary concepts and theories based on Indian Philosophical systems.
