BHARAT ADHYAYANA KENDRA

Bharata's rich tradition of intellectual inquiry goes back to thousands of years. The vast Vedic and Agamic literature forms the principal source of Indian tradition, with non-Vedic traditions such as Buddhism & Jainism being later tributaries. Sanskrit, Prakrit, Pali, and the country's various regional languages, are repositories of knowledge in various elements of civilization: spirituality, culture, philosophy, art, aesthetics, trade, management, human health, law, material science, etc. This knowledge is enriched through "shruti" and "Smriti" and subsequently transferred to generations in oral as well as written form.

Para and Apara vidya are two major classifications of the ancient knowledge system, and they collectively represent the entire wisdom of Bharata. Para leads to the spiritual enlightment and liberation (mukti), and Apara to the enjoyment of worldly pleasure by practicing Dharma.

In Bharata, Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha have been the four goals (viz. purusarthacatustaya) for human beings. Achieving these goals is through the knowledge preserved in Veda, Vedanga, Dharmashastra, Sankhya, Yoga, Nyaya, Vaisheshika, Mimansa, Vedanta and Lokayata, Jaina, Bauddha, agamas - sakta, Vaishnaava, shaiva, etc. The entire tradition and way of life in accordance with these enables our culture to be recognized as a highly developed one in the history of world culture.
