People used Sharada as the main script to write Sanskrit. Sharada Lipi (script) is a writing system based on the Brahmic family of scripts and has flourished in the northern part of India, especially Kashmir Himachal Pradesh and Punjab. Sharada texts have been widely found in Afghanistan. The oldest text of this script is dated 3rd Century CE.  There are thousands of manuscripts written in Sharada Lipi, available in many libraries within and outside India; most of them are still unexplored.

To answer this question, we have curated an INDICA Course that offers an opportunity to learn about the life and works of the “Poet Laureate of India” and discover the deeper aesthetic, philosophical, and spiritual roots of the Sūkti-s or noble utterances of a Modern Indian Rishi. It will be an immersion in Tagore’s creative and critical corpus to help the learner understand the keynote of Tagore’s monumental literary, artistic, and altruistic oeuvre – which is the unique Hindu emphasis on aspiring for the higher modes of existence, the life of the spirit, without denying the life of flesh and blood for a moment, while treating the latter as an important site of the unfolding of – and a veritable proof of – the former.

Overview of INDICA Course on Introduction to Western Civilisation

The success of Western powers in multiple domains in the so-called ‘modern’ era has enabled the Western civilizational perspective and the self-understanding that emerged during that time to present itself to the rest of the world, not as one perspective among others, but as the universal and definitive human perspective and as the culmination of the world’s intellectual and spiritual development according to principles supposedly objective and self-evident.

The hegemonic position of this civilizational perspective makes it imperative that the essential elements of the Western paradigm of thought referenced by Western geopolitical power as the source of its legitimacy be grasped and critiqued.

To provide the foundation for such awareness, INDICA Courses has introduced a course on Introduction to Western Civilisation.

It is based on a standard, widely assigned collection of readings used to construct the ongoing and open-ended ‘Western Canon’ so that learners may both appreciate the wisdom in this intensely contested tradition and recognize its hazards,

In this webinar, our faculty, Dr. Edward P Butler, will provide an overview of this course.
