Mcleod Ganj: Government College Dharamsala recently started a 6-month certificate course in Ancient Indian Wisdom. The Dalai Lama has continuously emphasized the need to start a program on Ancient Indian Wisdom. The Himachal government’s educational body approved the above course. On October 25 Friday, The Dalai Lama will meet with the students and the Faculty members of the 6-month certificate course in Ancient Indian Wisdom. For many years, The Dalai Lama has resolutely spoken of his commitment to reviving awareness of the value of ancient Indian knowledge among young Indians today.
The Dalai Lama is convinced that the rich ancient Indian understanding of the workings of the mind and emotions, as well as the techniques of mental training, such as meditation, developed by Indian traditions, are of great relevance today. Since India has a long history of logic and reasoning, he is confident that its ancient knowledge, viewed from a secular, academic perspective, can be combined with modern education.
He considers that India is, in fact, specially placed to achieve this combination of ancient and modern modes of knowing in a fruitful way so that a more integrated and ethically grounded way of being in the world can be promoted within contemporary society.
