Short Description

This book offers a comprehensive framework to understand the foundational elements of Indic Knowledge Systems & Heritage (IKS&H). Through 256 pages and 64 chapters, supported by 64 illustrations and over 70 curiosity boxes and activities, the book takes readers on an educational journey. It explores how ancient Indian ṛṣis, driven by the pursuit of happiness, discovered profound states of joy beyond sensory pleasures. This discovery, rooted in the laws of cyclicity in nature, laid the groundwork for the development of systematic frameworks that shaped the grand edifice of Indic civilization. From temples and universities to festivals, cuisine, arts, and scientific advancements like yoga and āyurveda, the book illuminates how these elements collectively define the essence and achievements of Indic civilization, emphasizing happiness as a central theme rather than mere curiosity about the external world. This work draws heavily from the seminal lectures of Yogi-Seer Śrīraṅga mahāguru and his scholarly disciples.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The story of Indic civilization starts with the pursuit of happiness and the role of sensory-motor experience in it. While probing the source of this joy, ancient Indian ṛṣis delve deep into the laboratories of human existence and discover a new state – one that provides happiness of very large magnitudes. However, this discovery presents a strange conundrum: the sensory joys we are all familiar with, prevent progress into the new treasure house. Humans are unwilling to leave the bird in the hand for the golden bird deep in the cave. How do the ṛṣis respond? The key to the solution emerges from the ṛṣis’ discovery of the laws of cyclicity in nature. Harnessing the tailwinds of prakṛti behind them, the ṛṣis take humanity on a voyage to happiness deep within – the ātma-sukha, without having to forsake indriya sukha. With this as the foundation, ṛṣis develop systematic frameworks brick-by-brick to build the grand edifice that we know today as the Indic civilization. The story of their achievements weaves through grand temples, scholarly universities, vibrant festivals, delightful cuisine, mesmerizing arts, and finally, the civilizational state called bhārata. Its prized scientific and artistic advancements, including yoga, āyurveda, mathematics, astronomy, vedas, purāṇas, itihāsas, kāvyas, śāstras, citra, śilpa alike, are all products of this quest for happiness, rather than a mere passive curiosity about the external world…
