INDIC KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS
Indic Knowledge Systems provide us with frameworks that will help future public leaders learn for life. These frameworks are authentic to India, and when calibrated in modern context, help us tackle the macro problems of our future. Our ambition is that our participants engage with and help solve the most pressing global problems of today.
Indic Knowledge Systems combined with Yogic Rituals focus on increasing mental and physical well-being of our future public leaders. These rituals also bring about a sense of harmony and community amongst our learners, that proves useful in boosting coherence between the three domains.
This programme aims to provide learners with a sense of awe and kindle their interest in Indic knowledge systems. The learners will be able to trace the history, evolution and structure of Indian thought, describe the theories of epistemology and compare them with the prevalent western discourse. This course is significant as it helps the learners to draw from the rich well of wisdom from Indic traditions, to unveil the solutions for the challenges the world faces today.
META SKILLS BASED APPROACH
Learning is a life-long process, it is emergent. The one-year Accelerator Programme at Rashtram aims to initiate the Learner deeply into this process by creating the necessary humility, grace, and intellect. This is achieved through a curriculum focused on instilling a set of ‘meta skills’ that equip our learners with mental models to remain relevant in a rapidly changing context.
In the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of today where the boundaries of physical, digital, and biological are collapsing into each other, a truly trans-disciplinary outlook that taps into first principles of key disciplines is needed to help address the pervasive crisis of meaning-making. These mental models are carefully curated into two parts: Common-Core & Track Specific.
Each meta-skills is taught as a course, supported with rich material ranging from epics and kavyas to cutting edge contemporary case studies and research papers from across the world. This core set lays the foundation for the track-specific meta skills which add a substantial layer of specialisation.
