A much needed platform for traditional excellence – Vedic Knowledge Network Shri Ranjit Puranik (Patron)
We are in the knowledge millennium. We are celebrating the greatness of science as we experience it. Scholars and thought leaders like Prof J C Bose and Swami Vivekananda are revered for their foresight and teachings which we as students in our quest for knowledge have feasted upon. In every Indian feat that we reminisce there is a base of Vedic origin. This very thread of ‘great intelligence’ is the fabric on which NASYA is being knit. Over a period of time this would be a platform that networks the Ayurveda community not just in India but over the globe. Knowledge Exchange is what would be an initial outlook and this graduation to a full-fledged community would be the course of this movement.
Students & Youth
In every way NASYA would attempt at bridging the vacuum that takes place when an altered teaching methodology erases the basic age-tested impact of a Guru Shishya bond. NASYA presence in campus would enlarge the scape for the Ayurveda student to access wisdom wherever it is, however it is, whenever. This network of students with a one fundamental yearn – Knowledge, would make all the difference to hasten the young minds development. ‘Query’ is a must for progress and development to follow, NASYA would provide a larger canvas for this query to find a suitable echo. Guru will meet Shishya and Shishya in turn will find like-minded colleagues with a similar churn. This back and forth through programmes, symposia, interactions and various other forms of reaching-out, is aimed to ensure a larger access to – Ayurveda Knowledge.
NASYA is a forum that has an advantage of being a thought-spring from ‘Vijnana Bharati’, an organisation who for the past 3 decades has furthered the importance for Swadeshi Science. Considerable awareness of how traditional arrangements in lifestyle and scientific approach are relevant today not only in India but for the world to adopt, is an aimed outcome of their work. Practical, useful, economically accessible, sustainable and simple in point are many of the illustrative gains we have seen from Vijnana Bharati coalition of organisations. NASYA has this edge in accessing matured guidance which makes its ability to deliver that much more to its members. Another though-spring of Vijnana Bharati is World Ayurveda Foundation (WAF), who now manages the World Ayurveda Congress. Both NASYA and WAF would make way for richer, deeper and scientifically advanced World Ayurveda Congress’ in times to come.
