Our Strategy

We pursue a comprehensive strategy that is based on Indic thought

1.

time

We use three horizons framework of near, medium and long term goals as it enables us to sow seeds which will blossom in the long term, even as we address the issues of immediacy. 

2.

space

The uniqueness of Indic thought lies in its manifestation across the spectrum of scriptures, commentaries, literature, arts, crafts and spiritual practices.

We therefore believe that any renaissance effort should focus on the entire spectrum of our thought- intellectual, cultural and spiritual.

3.

cause

We simultaneously seek to preserve our traditional institutions, knowledge and practices, protect our identity from being distorted, and promote our thought to local and global consumers, practitioners and seekers.

4.

transforming
intellectuals

 

self

We enable public intellectuals to discover the potential within their “self”, discover their aptitude as thinkers, organizers or communicators, pursue their passion for objective or subjective sciences, and choose the right career path as an academic, author, artist or activist.

selfless

We nurture them to become ‘selfless’ social entrepreneurs and assist, incubate and invest in platforms based on Indic thought, which offer a product, service or experience that is authentic, immersive and transformative.

Self

We enable the pursuit of the true “Self” by offering authentic spiritual courses which integrate devotion, discipline, and knowledge for intellectuals to become Life/Executive coaches, Yogacharyas and Gurus

5.

building an
ecosystem

 

Connect

We seek to create and connect –

• a global multi-city network of volunteers to host our events and engage with the local communities.

• domain-specific networks to bring forth focus and encourage participants from around the world to come together on one platform and exchange ideas.

Cooperate

Collaborate

We seek to act as a hub for the ecosystem and catalyse new initiatives. Towards this end we collaborate with Universities, Colleges, Schools, Research Institutions, NGOs, Publishers, Media, Ashrams, Gurukuls, Think Tanks, Associations, Endowments, Platforms, Academics, Authors, Artists and Activists.
