Home / Revival Of Indian Knowledge System

Indian civilization creates a history of more than 15000; oldest in the world is known for its exploration of fundamental knowledge. During development of India as civilization its scholar’s mostly rishis have produced, epic literature containing valuable knowledge, relevant for a human being, irrespective of caste & religious belief.

India is known for its achievements in almost every branch of knowledge including Medical Science, war strategy, agriculture, astrology, astronomy, numerology, palmistry, aeronautics, mathematics, yoga etc. For almost every branch of science, Indian knowledge remains to be the foundation for the global knowledge system for example be it a discovery of (0) ZERO and the number system act as the foundation for mathematics or be it the Solar System as the foundation for an astronomy, be it Ayurveda foundation for health care system etc. However, after the fall of the last major empire led by Ashoka, India was ruled by small states over smaller territories followed by foreign rule for about 700 years. During which Indian knowledge system did not get a chance of further expenses and growth. Rather many of Indian knowledge and inventions were taken away by foreigners and claimed at their own. For example, The Aviation technology was developed by Shivkar Bapuji Talpade based on ‘Biman Shashtra’ by Maharishi Bharadwaja. In spite of this ‘WRIGHT BROTHERS’ are known to be the first inventors of the aeroplane in the world. This could happen only because Indian did not know and respect their ancient Indian systems. Ignorance about and absence of respect for our ancient knowledge system supplemented by the exploitative attitudes of the foreign rulers has led to a lot of damage to the huge knowledge system of India. In addition, Indians have been disconnected from the highly reach Indian knowledge system in which Britisher’s played a major role intentionally to promote inferiority complex among the natives and blocking them away from their knowledge system. It is our duty after independence refurbished the Indian knowledge system and share with pride to develop a self-rising and proud nation.

VISION FOUNDATION is committed to work in this area of polishing the ancient Indian knowledge system and sharing with one and all through following actions:

  1. Research and documentation
  2. Promotion through workshop and publication and audio/visual production (film/documentary)

Mark Twain, an eminent author has rightly said “India is a cradle of human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother is the legend, and the great-grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and the most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only”
