Vikas Vimarsa- Critiquing Development from a Dharmic Standpoint

  • An engrossing conversation of Development from a Dharmic Standpoint by Halley Kalyan.

Several decades ago the scholar Lynn White Jr stated "I personally doubt that disastrous ecological backlash can be avoided simply by applying to our problems more science and more technology". His paper triggered a lot of thinking on the confluence of Religion-Ecology-Economy. This Atharva Forum talk by Halley Kalyan is an attempt to build a Hindu discourse on that topic by anchoring it around the masterful work Vikas-Vimarsh by the Shankaracharya of the Puri Govardhan Math, Jagadguru Shri Nishchalananda Saraswati ji. This book offers a thorough critique of the pitfalls of the prevailing model of anthropocentric development and reckons the need for a development paradigm that is rooted in Sanatana Dharma.
