4th National Seminar of Indian Society for Indic Studies(InSIS)2016
Human beings are multilayered creatures created of the all-pervading Divine Energy. Our living experience is defined by material, mental and spiritual planes of existence. The realization of the connect with the divinity within and without has been the goal of ancient Indian wisdom. Over the past many centuries humanity has drifted away from the spiritual plane of existence. As a result of the disconnect with the spiritual energy, the baser instincts of the human society have come to dominate the world that we inhabit. We find this disconnect manifested as ill will between people, groups, social structures, communities and nations.
Ancient Indian scriptures are filled with knowledge and wisdom to create a more balanced and harmonious life on the planet. Currently, this knowledge is missing in our education system. This knowledge can be imparted very effectively by using the currently available multimedia learning technologies and tools. Thus the vision of this seminar is to cultivate inner awareness to understand the magnitude of the challenges faced by the society and find lasting solutions to address these challenges.
The Indian Society for Indic studies (InSIS) managed by Dr. Paramamitra Shastri Education and Charitable Trust, DRPSECT (Regd.) strives to bring together the scholars, experts, professionals and students from all walks of life to share their thoughts and knowledge on ancient Indian Scriptures and their applicability in various fields of modern education and research. The society is working proactively since 2011 and has successfully organized national and international conferences and seminars in the past to impart knowledge and wisdom to the world.
