System of Purusharthas

System of Purusharthas

Suresh Padmanabhan

If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India!

—Romaine Rolland

Purusharthas means the individual’s objectives to living. The individual has to adhere to a system so that she/he has a meaningful life.

The four pursusharthas are dharma, artha, kama, and moksha.

Let us put the above technical terms into practical livable truths:

Dharama means righteousness and duties, i.e., well-thought-of rules and regulations for harmony of self and nature.

Artha means material, money, and wealth.

Kama means desires.

Moksha means liberation or enlightenment.

The beauty of the system is its timelessness. Do look at the chronological order which is the most relevant part of the system.

Ancient India: 10,000 Years Plus of an Dazzling Civilization and Modern USA

Ancient India: 10,000 Years Plus of an Dazzling Civilization By Suresh Padmanabhan


India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India.
—Mark Twain

I have always admired India especially Ancient India. Such an advanced civilization. It only pains me that we as Indians have lost the legacy which was passed down by our Masters. Here is a brief synopsis of Ancient India which we all need to be proud of. Do share with the younger generation who are supposed to take India back to its glorious days.

For me USA symbolises the West. I admire the spirit of USA. What Indians did in the Ancient past, USA did it all in the last few hundred years. There are many things which one should learn from USA.

Learn about all the Outer achievements from USA and Learn about all Inner achievements from Ancient India.

Anyone who can synthesis both the outer and the inner will become Evolved.

Marriage of ideas between USA and India can make the world a unique place.

Request to one and all to pour your heart and soul to make it happen.
