These are some of the many problems, taken at random, which we find agitating the human mind in every land, from the very dawn of civilization. Philosophy deals with problems of this nature. As philosophy aims at knowledge of truth it is termed in Indian literature, 'the vision of truth' (darsana). Every Indian school holds, in its own way, that there can be a direct realization of truth (tattva-darśana). A man of realization becomes free; one who lacks it is entangled in the world.

31. How Masters Programs will be useful to various age groups ? Are they beneficial for currently employed people? If yes, then how ? 

Ans. :-   Masters Programs offered by Bhishma School of Indian Knowledge System will be useful for all age groups and all sectors of the society. Let us understand that as per the New National Educational Policy, there will be revolution and radical change in the education system in India. Now every UG & PG student has to acquire minimum of 5 % credits from IKS out of the total credits required for achieving total credits for a degree. Apart from this, central government is trying to apply all indigenous, ancient and traditional Indian models based on Indian Knowledge System in every field and every sector of the society, social life, governance, trade, commerce, agriculture, education, health sector, etc. At the other end, we experience that the so called modern western models are getting defeated and failed around us. E.g. Allopathy does not have solutions for many ultra-modern diseases and Ayurveda has a deep sense preventive health. Another example is multinational companies mislead Indian population about the quality of food and drugs. Pantanjali and Ramdev Baba have created examples which are beneficial not only for Indians but for the whole world. Let us understand that the whole country as a whole is getting ready for revival and transformation as ancient traditional glorious India. People with any age group working in any field can join Masters Programs and convert the knowledge into an opportunity in the next few decades. They will be the change leaders and lead the change happening around us. So you may be working in any government organization, teacher, professor, doctor, lawyer, CA, engineer, architect or graduate degree holder in any field you can think about Masters Programs as a supportive or alternative career. It will enlighten you at the individual level and also will help you to create a change in society in a professional way.
