To promote excellent standards in education, dissemination of philosophical thought and promotion of ethical ways of life, A.P.S. University, Rewa established the Department of Advaita Vedanta Philosophy to educate students and enrich knowledge.
The Department of Advaita Vedanta Philosophy came in to existence on 15/01/2004. The department has established itself powerfully and effectively in the university and the region. Comparatively in a shorter span of time, the department has successfully worked in different dimension of research, teaching, organization of lectures and conducting extension and awareness programmes. We are proud to say that our department runs Rani Krishnakumari Devi Lecture series, Swami Vishnuteerth Vedanta Lecture series, Maharaja Vishwanath Singh Smriti Lecture series and Kunwar Arjun Singh Smriti Lecture series. We have continuously conducted social welfare extension programmes for students and children in collaboration with different NGOs. Apart from running the regular course of M. A. in Philosophy, we have started a self-supporting programme in Jyotish and Indian Ritual Science. The University and the society at large felt the need of studying ritual scientifically. Therefore, we have started this programme. The Department is going to organize a National Seminar on Dharma Evam Vijnan from 22-01-16 to 24-01-16.
