VEDIC SCIENTIFIC THINKING

Awaken the Scientist in your spirit

Study Indic scientific treatise

Learn reasoning to hone scientific inquiry

Course Overview

India’s traditional education system used to have formal training in thorough mastery over language; vocabulary and poetic stories followed by the study of nyaaya (logic) and saankhya shaastras (cosmology). They equipped the students with systematic models to make logical sense of the world from matter to consciousness in one sweep. Their study hones three key skills of scientific thinking, namely, abstraction, classification and inference essential to become a creative scientist. Study of entertaining stories in pleasing, high quality language helps one develop keen aesthetic sense and sensitivity to both nature and fellow beings that is the basis of empathy and ethics. With these key skills, children will be able to create their own scientific understanding of modern subjects instead of cramming theories handed down by others. They will also be ready for formal study of traditional Indic knowledge systems, which are monumental intellectual works with great potential for future application. The Vedic Scientific Thinking Course aims to restore scientific thinking and empathy in an entertaining and fun way based on time-tested Indic wisdom. This is a 1-year online course taught by a renowned young Vedic scholar, Sri J Suryanarayana who is an expert in Nyaaya, Sanskrit language and Indic reasoning and debating skills.

Course Objective

1. Learn model-based reasoning to hone scientific inquiry (abstraction, classification and inference skills) via applied study of nyaaya-vaisheshika shaastra concepts (tarka sangraha).
2.Take them into discovery of science, logic, wisdom and traditions.

3. Participant Preparedness for shaastra study under an aachaarya to appear for high standard traditional Examination 4 years later.

Expected Outcomes

The course will open up modern-day child’s mind to assimilate Bhaaratiya traditional scientific knowledge
and train in scientific inquiry systematically.
1. Thorough mastery over Sanskrit language to be able to study Indic scientific treatises formally.
2. Training in model based reasoning essential for any contemporary discipline.
3. Learning how to learn by oneself and be an original thinker.
4. Preparation to take up formal study of Indic shaastras to appear for the famed Tenali pariiksha – the prestigious certification of traditional scholarship.

This course not only makes children converse fluently in Samskrita language, but also prepares them to
later study shaastra texts with certifiable proficiency and apply them in daily life. The focus is to get into the minds of our rishis and imbibe their thinking process. We want to make next generations gurus, who can take applicable concepts from different shastras and make components or full products. And this course is the first gateway for it.
