Indian Culture, Spirituality and Modern Economics – Part 2

Continued from Part 1

In this second part the speaker emphasises that a rights-based paradigm of society led by western individualism and individual enterprise is contradictory to the deep-rooted sense of dharma that has been the basis of Indian socio-cultural fabric. He also highlights that many of the policy advisory documents prepared by United Nations based on Marxian and Weberian models of development and their portrayals of Indian society and culture were deeply influential in shaping Indian policies by bureaucrats and intelligentsia of India. This resulted in a highly skewed understanding of who we are and how we can truly develop as a nation based on our own cultural ethos.

With its focus on Indian Culture and Integral Yoga, RENAISSANCE features content in the light of Sri Aurobindo’s vision for India and her role in the future of humanity. It highlights that the eternal spirit and creative genius of India must express itself in new forms in all domains – spiritual, artistic, literary, philosophic, scientific, aesthetic, social-political and more.
