RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT अनुसन्धान एवं विकास

MVIVVU-VVV is committed to carry out Research and Development in the field of Vedic Sciences and Philosophy based on the ancient Sanskrit literatures in the backdrop of modern science. The domain of our research activites pertains to literature based theoretical knowledge, practical research work based on ancient Vedic Sciences as well as development of educational softwares. For this purpose Maharshi VedInformatics & Research Centre was created in year 2005.

United Nations & Agenda 21

Agenda 21, the Programme of Action for Sustainable Development adopted by UNCED in Rio in 1992, contains a series of recommendations about the relevance of traditional knowledge to implementation of sustainable development policies and programmes. These recommendations are directed principally to ‘countries, with the support of the relevant international and regional organizations’ and address a wide range of sustainable development issues: human health, land resources, deforestation, desertification and drought, sustainable agriculture and rural development, marine resources, freshwater resources, the role of farmers, the role of science, education, public awareness and information, and information for decision-making.

One of the most significant recommendations on traditional knowledge is perhaps that contained in the chapter on Science for Sustainable Development (recommendation 35.7): “Countries, with the assistance of international organizations, where required, should: […] (h) Develop methods to link the findings of the established sciences with the indigenous knowledge of different cultures. The methods should be tested using pilot studies. They should be developed at the local level and should concentrate on the links between the traditional knowledge of indigenous groups and corresponding, current "advanced science", with particular focus on disseminating and applying the results to environmental protection and sustainable development.” [Source: http://www.unutki.org/default.php?doc_id=48]

पारम्परिक वैदिक ज्ञान का मंथन CHURNING THE TRADITIONAL VEDIC KNOWLEDGE

“VEDIC HINDU SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH METHODOLOGY” वैदिक हिन्दू वैज्ञानिक अनुसन्धान विधि

Research and investigation in any subject, be it science, arts, philosophy or theology, consists essentially of certain basic principles. These principles, for the first time, were investigated and formulated by an ancient Hindu philosopher-scientist Gotama or Aksapada. These have been embodied in the form of 'Nyaya Sutras' {nyaya means analysis). Akspada Gotama said to be contemporary of Kanada and Buddha, lived during the sixth century BC. Some scholars believe that he belonged to a period earlier than 600 BC. Local tradition in Mithila (modern Darbhanga in North Bihar, India) points out the place of his birth as a village called Gotamasthana, where a fair is held every year on the ninth day of the lunar month of Chaitra (March- April). The Nyaya Sutras, for establishing the true identity of fact, a phenomenon or an object, consist of:

(i) Pratyaksha प्रत्यक्ष (Perception) : is the recognition and knowledge of the objects, produced by their contact with external sense organs of sight, hearing touch, taste, smell; with internal sense organs such as mind.

(ii) Anumana अनुमान (Inference) : is the knowledge of the objects through the apprenhension of some mark which is invariably related to the inferred objects. During this process, firstly, there should be a relation of agreement in presence (anyaya) between two things i.e. ir all cases where one is present, the other should also be present. Secondly, there should be uniform agreement in absence between them (Vyatireka). Thirdly, no contradictory instance should be observed where one of them is present without the other (Vyabhica- ragraha). Lastly, relevant hidden determining conditions (upadhi) and accompanying circumstances have to be taken successively, investigated and eliminated by repeated experiments and observations to establish an invariable concomitance (vyapti) between the mark and the character inferred. This is how one can obtain the knowledge which is valid and correct.

(iii) Upamana उपामान (Comparison) : is the knowledge of the phenomenon or the object obtained by the establishment of a relation between a name and objects so named or between a word and its denotation, e.g. a child is told that an animal with such and such description a horse. When he sees an animal for the first lime with particulars which fit in with the description, he concludes, by comparison, that what he is seeing is a horse.

(iv) Aptavakya आप्तवाक्य (Testimony) : is a method of establishing the identity of an object i.e. the knowledge of the perceived and unperceived objects derived from the statement of authoritative sources viz. standard scriptures such as the Vedas, the sayings of the sages and the Research Journals. Here one must know as to how many interpre¬tations, according to the individual way of thinking, have been put forward and accepted by various scholars and people, to whatever is written in the Vedas. These interpretations have been sometimes poles apart but that has not in any way infringed upon the profound veneration in which the Vedas are held.

As regards the practical use of Nyaya Sutras, it is important to note that for Indians, theories and philosophies were not purely of academic interest. They were applied in many practical sciences. For example, practice and treatment in Ayurvedic medicine is extensively and elaborately based on Nyaya and other systems of Indian philosophies.

"VEDIC RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT & ANALYTICS NETWORK [VeRDAN] वैदिक अनुसन्धान, विकास एवं विश्लेषणात्मक तंत्र”

VeRDAN is Research and Development wing of MVIVVU. It has been established for re-developing indigenous Vedic research methodology for ShodhGranth (Thesis) writing. VeRDAN provides research guidance to the doctorate students.

It also recognizes distinguished persons accross the world and award them with honorary doctorate for their contribution in spreading and strenthening of Vedic Hindu Culture.

Under the visionary leadership of Dr. Chakradhar Frend, VeRDAN has develped Indigenous Thesis (ShodhGranth शोधग्रन्थ) format. This new Thesis format contains 9 sections and 18 chapters. Further details will be launched in booklet.

Traditional Knowledge Research on VEDIC MICROBIOLOGY

Department : Rishi Kanva Vedic Microbiology Research Institute

Projects : 1) To find out the degree of microbiological knowledge existent in the ancient Sanskrit and other non-Sanskrit Indian languages/ texts; 2) Collection of microbiological terminologies, verses (Slokas) in Sanskrit and its Hindi & English translation; 3) Evolving out how Vedic Microbiology can further assist for studies in Vedic-Ayurvedic and Modern life sciences-Microbiology-Biotechnology; 4) To evaluate the potential of Vedic Microbiology in giving new dimension to Ayurveda (role of Vedic microbiology in ‘marketing’ the Ayurveda in India and abroad), and 5) Identifying the Veda-Ayurveda prescribed antimicrobial agents and immuno-modulators to curb multiple / extensively drug resistant microorganisms.

Outcomes : Books (dictionary), Softwares etc

Rishi Kanva Vedic Microbiology Research Institute (RKVMRI) was established in the year 2005 in Gujarat (India). RKVMRI is an exclusive Vedic organization dedicated for research and development of Microbiological knowledge mentioned in the ancient Scientific Sanskrit texts (known as Vedic Microbiology) besides highlighting the potential of Vedic microbiology for indigenous--sustainable development and well-being.
