Unveiling the Global Significance of the Indian Knowledge System and Empowering Yoga Practices

Ashwini Sham Tikhe | Dr. Akhilesh Kumar Singh | Dr. Sham Ganpat Tikhe

Abstract: The profound impact of Indian knowledge, culture, philosophy, and spirituality on a global scale cannot be overstated. The Indian Knowledge System (IKS), enshrined in texts like Vedas and Upanishads, serves as a treasure trove of wisdom that demands preservation, documentation, and dissemination. Even in our contemporary world, science - based practices and insights from IKS remain remarkably pertinent. The holistic utilization of IKS necessitates its decolonization, steered by effective Indian leadership. While embracing the timeless wisdom of our heritage, we must also confront our societal challenges, striving to forge a future that harmoniously amalgamates ancient wisdom with modern complexities. Notably, IKS suggests solutions to various global issues. The New Education Policy sets a roadmap for the integration of IKS into higher education. Yogic practices, encompassing Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi, constitute the quintessence of IKS. Practicing Yoga fosters inner joy, holistic well - being, tranquillity, and a profound connection between an individual's inner consciousness and the external universe. The adoption of Yogic practices empowers students to bridge the gap between the traditional and modern educational paradigms. This engagement with ancient wisdom cultivates a holistic scientific temperament that fuels multidisciplinary research and innovation, promoting holistic health and contentment. In conclusion, the integration of IKS, coupled with Yoga practices, should be seamlessly woven into mainstream education.
