Shad Darshana and Linguistic Thought
।।ज्ञानम् सर्वम् शब्देन भाषते।।
Darshana (दर्शन) is the body of literature that delves into some of the fundamental questions about the world around us. Derived from the Sanskrit verb root ‘to see,’ Darshana tries to help us answers questions such as – Who are we? Where have we come from? What kind of world do we live in? How do we humans relate to this world? What is the purpose of our lives? So on and so forth.
On the other hand, language is a conduit between humans and the world we perceive around us. The Vedic scholars believed that a universe of objective reality exists solely because human beings can express that reality through language. Native American storyteller Robin Wall Kimmerer observed in her poetic meditation on moss, “finding the words is another step in learning to see.”
In this conversation, we will hear Prof. Kapoor’s reflections on the Shad Darshana and Linguistic Thought.
