A three day National seminar on “An Appraisal of Lokāyata Darśana and its Real Place in Indian Philosophy” was organized at the Alice Project- Sarvabhowmik Shikshashram Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya, from August 10 to 12, 2019.
It was the first time that Alice Project could organize a seminar together with ICPR, the Indian Council of Philosophical Research, established in March 1977 under Department of Higher Education and Ministry of Human Resource. About 150 professors and a number of vice chacellors from different institutions of India participated in this seminar.
The senior students, teachers and the whole Alice Family participated in the event together with 25 teachers from different parts of the world.
The chief guest Vice chancellor of Sampurnanad Sanskrit University, Benaras Pro.f Raja Ram Shukla was extremely happy with such seminar and he praised the Alice Project – Sarvabhowmik Shikshashram Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya, saying that such events should be done again and again. Prof. Rajneesh Shukla Vice- Chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University, explained the values of the four vedas in Human life in this seminar. Professor Geshe Ngawang Samten Vice Chancellor – Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, Saranth- was extremely happy and surprised to see how the Alice Project is every day touching the new heights of success. Another valuable speech was delievered by a close friend of Alice Project, Mr. Gulab Kothari. Mr.Kothari is an Indian author, journalist and editor-in-chief of Indian daily newspaper Rajasthan Patrika. He is the winner of the Moortidevi Award – 2011 and is known for his contributions to Vedic Studies prominent among which is Maanas. The crucial point of his speech was that modern education is making humans more and more materialistic. There is lack of moral and ethical values and a great need of an education such as the one of Alice Project.
Alice Project is doing something different, teaching moral and ethics to its students from the very beginning of their schooling, and believing that through such kind of education we can fill this gap.
