Dr. D.K.Hari and Dr. D.K.Hema Hari of Bharath Gyan conduct this course - "Hindu Contributions To The World - In The Realm Of Matter", under the aegis of the Hindu University of America.
This course is being offered in 2 concurrent batches - one as per US timings and one as per Australia and New Zealand timings, so that most across the globe will be able to find a time slot that suits their geographical location.
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 will be handled in this course which explores the contributions of the Hindus to the world so as to have shaped the material progress of humanity.
The other perspective, handled in the course "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 courses investigate the question – “Are Hindu ideas obsolete? Or do they have contemporary relevance?”
Both these courses are open to all, from teens to grand parents, from students to professionals to academicians to homemakers to cultural enthusiasts as well as retirees.
The course, "Hindu Contributions To The World - In The Realm Of Matter" has been designed to be delivered in 2 parts -
To gain an understanding of the 5 major contributions that were made by the Hindus to the world. How they impacted the world and the Hindu Civilization? What happened to them and what can we learn from them for today’s context?
To gain an understanding of what was the advantage that the Hindus had cultivated, due to which they had been able to rule the tastes, possessions and obsessions of the world. How was this advantage snatched away and how does an understanding of the same bear relevance today?
What were the Game Changers for India?
What made India the Game Changer for the World?
Over these 2 parts of 10 sessions each, where each part spans a quarter, this course will cover a variety of areas of innovation, inventions, development and trade, and sustained contributions that characterized the Hindu civilization for millennia. These areas will include Metals, Textiles, Dyes, Spices, Diamonds, Navigation, Fireworks, Perfumes, and how these innovations impacted the world.
During this course, students will acquire newfound confidence from the dawning of a recognition that the Hindu Civilization has been quite different from what our received knowledge has led us to believe and renew their trust in the Hindu worldview and way of life, that has been so sustainable and successful for so long.
