The National Education Policy - 2020 highlights the importance of holistic development of the learner. Authentic study of rich heritage and Indian knowledge tradition is imperative for this purpose. No history can be written without a chronological understanding of glorious traditions of India. However, history written in the past has been prejudiced by the colonial perspective and European chronology. While the method of chronology has greatly influenced the progression of all the ancient civilizations of the world (Egypt, Babylonia, Indus Valley etc.). It has ignored or rejected the historicity of Indian ancient texts. In the ancient Sanskrit literature, there has been a subtle interpretation of various aspects of 'time'. Indian sages have not only studied the events of nature from the perspective of chronology, but have also made ‘time’ the base of their refined studies. Even in the modern era, both philosophy and science have analyzed this element of time from their own point of view.

In this Certificate Program, scientificality and authenticity of all the Indian concepts and calculations of time will be explained. Further on the basis of questionnaires, the science of time calculation will also be analyzed. Authentic evidence of historical chronology of India will be presented to prove the advancement of ancient Indian astronomy. This program will further be able to add new dimensions to the study of Philosophy, Theology, Astrology, Vastushastra, Sanskrit, History, Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy, etc.
