SAMA: Transdisciplinary nature of Indian Knowledge Systems (IKS)

India’s traditional knowledge system sees the individual as a whole - body, mind and spirit. Every branch of knowledge requires a deep dive into the different sciences, mastery over language, as well as an engagement with
multiple source texts. There are multiple ways of viewing the world and IKS helps to understand and experience
the world through different paths, all leading to the same destination - self-realisation.
