The Pathway for Leading an Enlightened Life

Jain (Deemed-to-be University) School of Commerce’s Department of Samskritam welcomes you to join an illuminating and informative one-day national conference on “Katha Sahitya Dwara Samaja Sudharanam“.  This event will be held on 29th February 2020 at the JGI Knowledge Campus located in Jayanagar, Bangalore.

The conference will provide a platform for teachers and research scholars to hold meaningful discussions, debates on various topics and how Vedas impart valuable insights on leading a life of contentment. From time immemorial, it is seen that stories and fables have been a medium to impart knowledge in the society, to help mankind attain enlightenment that leads to permanent salvation. Many Samskrita writers have contributed towards this through their works like Somadeva’s Kathasaritsagara, Gunadhya’s Bruhatkatha, Kshmendra’s Bruhatkathamanjari, Panchatantra, Hitopadesha, Bouddha Jatakas, to name a few.
