Vedic Philosophy and Ideal Human Settlements
Abstract: The study of Vedic literature provides a lot of matter to human kind for introspection, it aims to build characters of the believers, and it does a great service to the humanity on whole. This paper is based on a doctoral thesis which discusses the idea of ideal human settlements in the light of the Ekistics and the Vedic philosophies towards the common goal of welfare of mankind in totality. The paper aims to look back at the Vedic philosophy and establish its greatness and relevance in addressing the common issues of human settlements in totality as holism is the underlying current. It is an attempt to rediscover the gem that it is. The paper tries to answer several questions logically by going through what has been said in the Vedas and interpreting it in the context of human settlements for seeking excellence and well- being for humanity.
Keywords: Vedic literature, ideal human settlements, Ekistics, holism
