Concept Paper of Nepal Darshan Adhyayan Kendra

The human beings of the 21st century are inundated with the augmenting flow of information and knowledge.  Not surprisingly,  modern man is also inclined towards thorough experimentation and evaluation of any  information and ideas before complying with them. In this light, philosophy  as a special branch of knowledge teaches the people not to succumb to any theory or  belief  blindly.

 There is an immense growth of knowledge on the one hand. On the other hand, people are constantly exploring the best ways to live life. Some  people  absolutely bank upon religious precepts while others think scientific principles as the only  truth they try to negate the significance of philosophy. However, it will be gross irrationality to dismiss the role of philosophy without properly understanding the broadness  it covers. Philosophy is the only branch of knowledge which can deal with fundamental issues that have long fascinated  mankind such as  life, death, god and the universe .Neither  science nor  religion alone is capable to engage with these topics.

 Nepal is a land where many sages, thinkers and  spiritually enlightened person have accomplished outstanding  goals since the ancient time. Nepal gave birth to Gautam Buddha, the symbol of peace, and sages like Kapil and Yagyabalkya if to name a few. In fact, even in the  middle age and modern era, Nepal has been a home to various illustrative thinkers.

 Philosophy reserves immense prospects to create  an environment which can support the greater well-being of Nepali society. Against this backdrop, we have come up with the concept of Nepal Philosophy Study  Center to advance this glorious tradition.

 Nepal is, undeniably, passing through a  period of grave crisis. This gloomy state has emanated from our  failure  to effectively resolve the myriad of social, political, economical and cultural ills the country has been suffering from. 

As such, it will not be illogical to state that there is a glaring need to foster a proper philosophical atmosphere to encourage a rational system of thought to help resolve these problems.  

 We also believe that there should be combined efforts to revisit the glorious philosophical tradition of ancient and middle age.

 In this context, the proposed center has been conceptualized with the following objectives:

1)         To conduct study and research on philosophy in Nepal

2)         To coordinate, cooperate  and interact with various national and international  bodies involved in the field of               philosophy.

3)         To organize seminar, workshop and various other programmes from a Nepalese perspective.

                4)         To write history of Nepalese philosophy and publish articles commentaries, reviews etc.

                5)         To act as an Information Center.

                6)         To act as a forum to enable  interaction  between various  philosophical tradition

             of  ethnic and cultural communities.

 Undeniably, a host of anomalies found  in social, political, economical and cultural arenas today demand insightful assessment and careful analysis. The development of innovative, forward-looking and inclusive ideas has become the urgent need of the hour. Such an endeavor alone can preserve and harness the positive aspects of our  philosophical tradition as well as ensure a greater good of our  society .

 If you comply with our viewpoints in any way, lets march ahead together.
