Concept note of the Congress

Present day world is struggling for a peaceful, healthy and happy life despite all the development, advancement and economic growth. Since the beginning of the twentieth century the world has witnessed an increasing focus on growth and accumulation of wealth at the cost of society, resulting in many socio-economic, political and environmental problems. The human beings are yearning for a breath of fresh air and as a species we are beginning to realize that led by the greed to earn more money, we have unmindfully plundered the planet to near destruction and reached a state where, if we do not change our ways we are surely heading towards extinction. While the world endeavors to find ways and means to put a halt to this disparaging reality, we take a U-turn and seek guidance from our ancient wise forefathers who have embedded the secret of a harmonious, long and happy life in the ancient texts called Vedas. The idea of Sustainable development is at the core of Vedic Way of life.

The Vedic Way of life fully supports the holistic concept of Sustainable Development which entails fulfilling the needs of present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to fulfill their needs. Vedas had established the laws of sustainable Development centuries ago. Planet, People and Profit, the three Ps considered to breathe centre of sustainable development refer to Environment, Society and Economic development. The Vedas uphold a system that takes care of all the three Ps. In Vedic philosophy, core function of business is to create wealth for ‘Wellbeing of all’. Sustainable growth comes by earning money following ‘Values’. Key to success lies in ‘Yajna’ (Sacrifice for others). The conference aims at looking at various tenets of Sustainable development from the Vedic angle and finding some solutions to the issues that the world faces today in order to attain the goal of sustainability. We invite original research papers to discuss the solemn issue of Sustainability in relation to Vedas. Vedic way for growth ensures continuous flow of knowledge, finances, physical resources, learning and information like a river for prosperity of ‘Global Society’ Vasudhev Kutumbkam– the ultimate of cosmic reality.
