Pune (VSK). The Indian tradition never followed the path of relying on government for everything. There are many things which have to be done by the society itself in addition to the government. It was Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay who put forth this idea, said RSS Sarkaryavah Dattatreya Hosabale Ji on Friday.

He was speaking after releasing the ‘Ekatm Manav Darshan – Glossary of Concepts’, a special compendium which explains the exact meaning of Indian concepts. Governor BhagatsSngh Koshyari Ji presided the function while Executive President of Maharshi Karve Stree Shikshan Sanstha Ravindra Dev, National Coordinator of Pragya Pravah J. Nandakumar and Ravindra Mahajan of Ekatm Prabodh Mandal from Mumbai were present on the dais.

Sarkaryavah Ji said that a vaccum was created in the world after the World War II and Cold War. Experts were saying that end of history was near. But the history cannot come to an end and every generation creates own history. Now the world is in search of real happiness and Deendayal Upadhyay showed that only Indian philosophy can give this happiness.

He said that Deendayal Upadhyay ji showed the audacity to present the Integral Humanism at the time when the country was treading the path of western and socialist ideologies. He was much derided and laughed at for this. However, the same thoughts are proving as guiding lights today. He lamented that these thoughts were not given the academic thought that they deserved.

Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari Ji said, “Integral Humanism is not just for India but for the world. Our thinking should not be limited to us or our family but according to the Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam (Whole world is our family). The world is realising today that Communism and Capitalism are not the only two ways ahead and there is a third path also. With the passage of time that third path will be the only way and that would be of Integral Humanism.

CISR Secretary Haribhau Mirasdar spoke about the aim of preparing this compendium. A few of the 30 contributing authors for this glossary of terms were felicitated at the occasion by the Governor and Hosabale. Prof. Prashant Sathe compeered the function and gave the vote of thanks.

Integral Humanism Glossary of Terms

Giving an idea of this glossary of terms, Ravindra Mahajan said, a total of 131 concepts have been covered in this compendium. In this, a detailed attempt has been made to explain the meaning behind the words as against just giving the meaning like a traditional dictionary. An attempt has been made to note as much as possible the difference in spelling of these words, which are mostly Sanskrit, from various Indian languages or from English. This compendium has been created with efforts in this direction for the last seven years. This encyclopedia has been prepared by Ekatma Prabodh Mandal of Mumbai under the editorship of Rabindra Mahajan and Nana Lele, after a 4-years long effort with contributions from 30 scholars from across the country.


A day-long workshop dwelling on various aspects related to Integral Humanism was organised coinciding with the release of compendium. Five sessions related to Integral Humanism and Indian ideology were organised in the workshop.

National Coordinator of Pragya Pravah J. Nandakumar, prominent economist Varadraj Bapat, former MP Mahesh Chandra Sharma and Prof. Aniruddha Deshpande spoke in the workshop.
