Yoga, Ayurveda, Sangeet and Nritya systems ((Under the guidance of Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche)

Open only by registration (limited seats for observers)

In taking forward the series on “Indian Perspectives in Education”, we propose to have a 7 day seminar between the 26 September to 2 October, 2013, at the Deer Park Institute, Himachal Pradesh. This would be the third seminar in the series.

We are a group of people who have been engaged with education for more than two three decades now and are deeply concerned with the prevalent education system and its implications on the young minds. The assumptions, objectives and practices in the mainstream education in the country compel us to think that a time has come to revisit both the traditional and the modern systems and see how an integrated approach could be worked out.  In trying to keep with the demands of present day times, we feel that the quintessential components of many Indian traditions have been overlooked  or ignored by the mainstream education. We are certain there is much in Indian traditions that need to be understood and reconnected with the present. Visions of great seers and sages have a universal and far reaching vision, which has been rekindled by the thoughts expressed in the two earlier seminars. We aim to carry forward these reflections under the guidance and encouragement of Prof Samdhong Rinpoche, who had inspired us to organize two national seminars on “Indian Perspectives of Education” in the years 2011 and 2012, at Bir and Panchgani.
