Bharat as Vishwaguru (Part-2)
This book showcases the stunning achievements of Indian civilization. There has been an unprecedented upsurge of interest in our ancient heritage, which sparkles with the unmatched brilliance of pre-eminent Maharishis, who fathomed the many mysteries of the universe and the earth, millennia before the scientists and savants of the Western civilization did.
The sages served as lighthouses of wisdom, in a world steeped in barbarity and darkness, doing much to uplift humankind from its primitive limitations, besides preserving Sanatan Dharma.
Their discoveries in medicine, surgery, astronomy, philosophy, yoga, mathematics, grammar and linguistics, besides their outstanding contribution to statecraft, pure science and research, based on acute insights and observations, are on a scale unparalleled in any epoch of history. Their accomplishments are even more striking, given the absence of any technology or instruments.
A galaxy of towering luminaries like Ved Vyasa, Patanjali, Panini, Sushruta, Charaka, Chanakya, Varahamihira, Shankaracharya, to name a few, imbued Indic civilization with such unshakeable foundations that it has withstood thousands of years of invasions by Central Asian hordes, barbaric Muslim rulers, and rapacious European colonists, unlike Egyptian, Greco-Roman and other empires which crumbled before Islamic and Christian onslaughts.
