The journal that brings together the studies of interdisciplinary domains, science and spirituality, Indic and modem streams of learning is again presented from Dev Sanrkriti Vishwavidyalaya. Born out of a unique vision of the groundbreaking scholar and great visionary, Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharaya, Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya is an educational institution to mould its students into noble and enlightened human beings; selfless, warm-hearted, compassionate and kind individuals. Along with excellent domain focused approach, categorical excellence and a widely knitted outreach connect, the University aims to build individuals with spirituality as their locus of control and help them excel holistically through meticulously designed curriculums and dedicated faculty.
One of the primary objectives of the University is to provide education and conduct research in the disciplines of Vedic Culture (Dev Sanskriti) and to provide a proper blend of science and spirituality.
Every time, through our Journal, we present you a collection of research papers and studies that addresses and expresses the new dimensions of interdisciplinary research. In this new year, we wish all our readers a wonderful and bright future and bring together a fresh attempt with the 5th volume of DEV SANSKRIT!: International Interdisciplinary Journal.
The Journal carries not only some research studies, but also tries to convey a strong message; we all are researchers in some way or the other, finding answers to the unsolved mysteries of life, figuring out the ultimate purpose of our life and all together evolve from the present state of consciousness to the next higher up. In this journey those who are keen observers and have an observer's eye, progress faster.
This issue caters to a variety of interdisciplinary combinations ranging from Ideal Leadership to Leninism, from Yoga to Ayurveda, from Thought revolution to Quality of Life, from Yoga to Women Entrepreneurship, from Environmental issues to the present state of mother Ganga and the solutions offered as Thought Transformation by Yugrishi Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya.
While Onkar N Tiwari presses the pulse of environmental sustainability and very touchingly expresses his concern on conservation of natural resources and the hazards being created due to human intervention and therefore proposes a theological implication of environmental ecology, especially at a time when the external regulatory mechanisms have failed to deliver any result, Devendra P Mishra takes an intersting dig in the conceptual understanding of poisonous and non poisonous leeches in Ayurveda. A rare attempt has been done by Vikrant Sehgal in studying the famous writing of Arundhati Roy, 'The God of Small Things', where he strikes the notes of Leninism and Collectivism.
Restraining and protecting the adolescence age from actions induced by libidinal impulses is not only an important study but also a noble contribution. What kind of results can be achieved through yogic intervention was studied by Parul Agrawal under the guidance of Dr. Pranav Pandya.
Women entrepreneurship is an important area of effort and therefore the journal offers space to Tejvir S. Tomar's effort on studying the diversity in women entrepreneurship. Our international contribution comes from the efforts of Carly Carritore from the USA, who shares her grief towards the environmental injustice towards mother Ganga an offering a Vedic solution to it.
Pragya Singh and Deepak Singh explored the present day problems and examined the root cause behind them. They derived that the fall in the thinking and values are at the base of each problem and therefore proposed 'thought transformation' to be the solution.
Gayatri Gurvendra and Amrit Gurvendra studied the effect of Om chanting and Nadishodhan pranayam on the mental health of students while Amal Kr Dutta and Yogendra Singh studied the effect of yogic interventions on Drisht-vaishamya (Astigmatism). Authors Krishna Jhare and Megha Pal studied the leadership capabilities of Yugrishi Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya and the impact being created by the movement he has stirred up through changing the thoughts of people.
We heartily congratulate and thank to the reviewers and all the contributors. Hope, this issue of Journal will inspire and generate interest among researchers, educators, policy makers and professionals to understand the significance of Indigenous Knowledge in present era. We also thank all the readers and seek your feedback to make the journal a more effective vehicle in the field of Indigenous knowledge. Enjoy reading and enrich yourself. Have a wonderful year ahead.
