Seminar Announcement for Papers
Last date already over: 27 June 2017, Seminar dates are to be announced.

Important points in thought and activities of Shri M.S. Golwalkar

Ancient Indian ideas and ideals are not antagonistic to universal well-being (Ekatma Manav Darshan)

The concept of nation that present Indians talk of comes from the ancient idea of Bharat Varsh, that includes  territorial description and cultural description with Sanatan Dharma as the foundation.

Golwalkar’s conception of Hind Rashtra, the ideal for this territory is not theocracy. Rather it it can be branded as “Dharmocracy”. He emphasizes Dharma-centricity of Indian cultural ethos. Dharma is a very comprehensive concept enriched by several ideas and ideals, customs, traditions and practices which are beneficial to individual, society and world at large.

He spearheaded one of the strongest religious, cultural and social organizations of the world making determined efforts to inculcate in its followers a burning devotion to India and its ancient national ethos. He tried to kindle in them the spirit of dedication, moral character, service to society and its security.. He strived to arouse social consciousness, mutual goodwill, love and cooperation among them all and made them realize that castes, sects, languages etc. are secondary and the concept of the nation is supreme. People should not do anything that injures the nation and its spirit.  Thus he tried to inculcate in them behavior that strengthens the spirit of national consciousness in every Indian.
