About The Department

India has had its own educational methodology that is firmly rooted in the scientific tenets of analysis, logic, experiential validation, and repeatability. Vedas form the base of its unique knowledge culture, while accommodating regional indigenous disciplines over time. Ayurveda and Yoga are fruits of the Vedic system that are highly valued and popular today. However, it is lesser known that at their base lies a firm theoretical foundation of deep, holistic study of nature, human psychology, and of knowledge itself, its means (observation), methods (logic and language) and validation (experimentation). By Vedic Sciences, we refer to this collective body of India’s native knowledge base, and not merely its religious aspect as commonly misunderstood.
