This course is open to all, across the globe.

It is meant for both teenagers, parents and grandparents, together or separately and will focus on exploring the spirit of Hinduism with an intent to stimulate meaningful conversation about Hinduism between teenagers and their parents.

This series of courses is designed to take discussion and contemplation from beyond the course window, into the portals of home, family and society.

Hindu Contributions To The World can be listed from two mutually independent, but naturally supplementing perspectives.

One way is to list them from the perspective of Matter, which explores the contributions of the Hindus to the world so as to have shaped the material progress of humanity.

The other perspective, Hindu Contributions To The World In The Realm Of Mind, explores the contributions which have influenced Human thought, sciences, and spirituality through time.

Both these perspectives and courses modelled after them, investigate the question – “Are Hindu ideas obsolete? Or do they have contemporary relevance?”


These courses are open to all, from teens to grandparents, from students to professionals to academicians to homemakers to cultural enthusiasts as well as retirees.

Hindu Contributions To The World - In The Realm Of Mind has been designed to be delivered in 2 parts.

Part A – Sciences and Arts

This part will focus on concepts and practices from the Hindu Civilization which went on to influence and revolutionize the development of world thought as well as practice in the fields of Sciences and Arts.

Part B – Living and Lifestyle

In this part, focus will be on how the Hindus have laid stress on balance and have provided thought leadership to the world and steered it, especially in the areas of how to lead a balanced life. How was this undermined and how can the leadership status be regained?

Why did everyone, seemingly the world over, seek out the Hindu civilization and for what?

Over these 2 parts of 10 sessions each, where each part spans a quarter, these courses will cover a variety of areas of inquiry, discoveries, inventions and sustained advancements that have characterized the Hindu civilization for millennia.

Each part is independent of the other and can be taken in any sequence.
