The Digital Age, From a Dharmic Lens

THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION

The digital age has transformed our world, truly turning it into a global village. Technology’s march forward has touched every aspect of society, enhancing various aspects of human life.

DOUBLE -EDGED SWORD

While digital technology is often hailed as a miraculous tool, it brings its share of challenges: privacy concerns, the digital divide, and ethical dilemmas mark today’s hyper-connected society.

THE ROLE OF DHARMA

In the midst of diverse ideologies grappling with these issues, Dharma based models and theory promises to offer a multifaceted understanding and solutions to challenges faced.

Dharma and Digital Technology

THE ESSENCE OF DHARMA

Dharma, the foundation of Indic civilization and philosophy, offers principles that support both individuals and society. Yet, its application in addressing digital age challenges remains to be fully articulated.

BEYOND TECHNOLOGY

Advancements in technology alone cannot solve these challenges. A blend of human consciousness, social responsibility, and spiritual evolution, alongside technological innovation, can provide deeper insights.

Reimagining Technology vis-a-vis Culture

QUESTIONING TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSALITY

Is technology culture-specific, or does it transcend cultural boundaries seamlessly? This conference seeks to explore how the Dharmic framework can inform practical strategies for the digital era.

INTERFACING TECHNOLOGY AND DHARMIC PHILOSOPHY

We aim to foster dialogue on integrating technology with Dharmic principles, focusing on ontological, epistemological, and axiological aspects.

Explore and Contribute

We welcome research submissions exploring the intersection of technology and Dharmic philosophy. This call is open to various themes that align with the conference’s main focus.

Join us in this exploration to redefine the relationship between technology and culture through the lens of Dharma.
