Philosophical perspective of Indian culture


Dr. Durgesh Kumar Singh

Western thinkers have defined philosophy as the science of all phenomena of the universe with reference to their ultimate causes. The Indians seers, on the other hand, viewed philosophy as the search and accomplishment of the whole truth of life and being. According to them it is not only a mental or intellectual inquiry but also encompassed a conscious investigation of life. The purpose of Philosophy is to guide and fulfil life. However, the fulfillment of life is not attained merely contemplating on truth and being. The Vedic lore is replete with assertions that the philosophical urge ultimately culminates in the realization of Truth. It may appear somewhat strange that India as a nation should be secular one while our culture is deeply rooted in spiritual values. In India religion signifies the inner experience which reveals to the mind the real meaning and purpose of life, it is the very soul of our culture. This paper indicates the central characteristics of Indian culture as it has grown from its beginning to its present positions.
