The Indian culture is as old as the human civilization itself. The cherished
Indian society has its vibrant culture as its beating heart. India is beyond the
majestic temples and the breath-taking Himalayas, the politics, Bollywood
or even cricket. The colourful traditional festivals, the folk dances, rituals, the
dialects and deeply rooted values show the cultural diversity of this huge
democracy. The morals and the spiritual knowledge which has been passed from
generation to generation is an invaluable asset this country owns as its proud
possession. One of such cultural heritage is the science of Yoga, which is not
merely a physical exercise, it has a spiritual core too. This art has now been
recognised on an international level; UNESCO has recognised it as an Indian
Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Among so many other rich traditions that have been followed over the period of
hundreds of years, ‘Ashram’ is one among them. ‘Ashram’ is another such unique
concept, wherein, a group of people lived while following a certain lifestyle
through the four stages of a human life, the primary goal of these Ashrams was the
development of self. This issue highlights this interesting Indian culture.
Here is the second issue on the cultures of India, with again so many more
interesting insights of the land of so many spiritual legends. With hopes that all of
you will enjoy this issue, Jay Satchitanand!
