Creation - A Cosmic Insight

Contemplative Course

Creation

A Cosmic Insight

This is a one of a kind contemplative course to create an opportunity for seeking participants to explore a compilation on the subject of Creation from across various sources of Indian traditional knowledge juxtaposed with world view and modern science.

Indian tradition, customs and practices can be understood and appreciated better when one gets to understand the thought process behind the explanation of how everything has stemmed.

During the course, the participant will be encouraged to ask the most profound question “How did the Universe come to be?” and will be guided to the topics to be explored and the mind-set with which they have to be explored.

At the end of this program, the participant would have gained a broad understanding of how the Indian and Hindu thought had handled the Science of Creation with a blend of Spirituality to create a Diversity as a Ground Reality. One can then choose to explore the subject further according to one’s own interest and further resources along those lines.
