Once upon a time India was described as a land of heavenly life…; every man and woman who lived here was equivalent to divine beings. The mention of 33 billion manifestations of Gods in the Indian scriptures refers to these inhabitants of ancient India. It is a country of golden heritage and glorious past. All branches of knowledge and civilization are said to have emanated from the Indian Philosophy and Culture which were disseminated across the globe through the dedicated altruist endeavors of the Rishis. India was supposed to be the eminent guide of the entire world in pre and post vedic age. The scientific and socio-economic development here was so advanced those days that India was often referred as a “Dimond Bird” – a symbol of immense prosperity. The periphery of the Indian culture was so vast that practically the whole world was lying in its domain of influence until several thousands years ago.
 
A large number of scholars and researchers of world-history, oriental culture and intellectual evolution have elucidated different aspects of ancient India and on contributions of India to the entire world. Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya had reviewed the foundation and expansion of the culture and civilization of India and had prepared a comprehensive research document The authentic information compiled by him in 1972-73 during a voyage oversees is like a concise encyclopedia which is published as “ Samagra Vishwa Ko Bharat Ke Ajastra Anudaan”.
He provided details with evidential information and references on the global expansion and historical contributions of this most ancient culture to the civilization and cultural development of the rest of the world.

Be that religion, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, archeology, sociology, art, architecture, science, technology or any other horizon of civilization and culture, the seers and sages of India had generously bestowed their knowledge, guidance and creative help to the rest of the world. In fact many of them had gone to remote corners of the earth to elevate the status of life and culture there… In this effort, many of them had eventually resided in the foreign lands for ever…
Authentic proofs and references available in the above regard are still available with respect to India’s contributions in different countries ranging from – North America (USA), Latin America, Mexico, Germany, Egypt…..etc to South Africa…, Kampuchia, Laos, China, Japan, Russia and Australia... Similar details are cited here for small countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Mauritius, Indonesia, Fiji, Korea, Mongolia, Burma, etc, where the influence of Indian Culture is quite evident even today.

Once again, the revival of the glorious era of Indian cultural values and philosophy of life would be seen across the globe through the creative endeavors of those who have realized the divine origin and worth of the Indian Culture – including ancient religion, science and philosophy.
Today when the very survival of the human race appears to be facing the unprecedented risk of extinction, the danger of suicidal end of the ‘advanced’ civilization cannot be avoided without empowering the force of humanity. Refinement of the value system and purification of the external and internal environment of life have therefore become necessary….. The Indian cultural system has all elements required for the sustenance of progressive life and rise and culmination of human values up to divine heights. Its resurrection therefore appears to be the best option in the current scenario. Great visionaries see this as a certainty….
 
 
Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - Global Village

Because of its sound footing on the in-depth knowledge of human psychology and science of spirituality, the Indian philosophy adequately deals with unlimited expansion of different aspects of human life including those at the most personal to those at the global levels. Because, Nature and every form of existence has also been treated here as a manifestation of universal consciousness, the materialistic domain of the world and the nature, functions and activities of the gross body too fall within the consideration of this philosophy. The original structure and relevance of the Indian culture is therefore regarded as universal.

Lasting Peace and Prosperity

Indian culture also has been always the mother guide for the rest of the world till date. Even in the current context, India is highly regarded as the future Knowledge economy, and will show the right path to the rest of the world. The contribution runs down way back to the Vedic periods when Ayurveda, Yoga therapy, Yagya, Spiritual way of living were taught by our Rishis. Each of these famous Rishis were research scholars of their respective knowledge field.
 Our culture taught to the rest of the world, the basis of life, the way to live and to improve it by giving them the 3 fold path of spirituality-
 1) Sadhana-- Worship
 2) Upasana – Self discipline
 3) Aradhana – Selfless Service
 
Values :

Share and care is also one strong dimension which was rare in the rest of the civilizations and has been instrumental in the survival of Indian civilization. That’s why, even Britishers observed when they came here for the first time. The conclusion was- India is a self sufficient country and every one here is happy. Rich- poor, Good – bad, all live in peace and harmony.
Prayer was a concept unique to our civilization and is the most primordial, fundamental and important language humans speak.
 
Holistic Management

All the management terms and concepts of psychology used today in the advanced corporate world are rooted in Indian civilization somewhere or the other. The concepts of Intelligence quotient, Emotional Quotient, Spiritual Quotient had all been derived from this. Researches have proved time and again the glory of this mother culture.
