Karnataka Haridasa Scientific Research
Centre (KHSRC) is the culmination of the efforts of a group of dedicated
individuals drawn from various walks of life for more than four decades.
This center was founded under the leadership of Professor Ranganath Bharadwaj, one of the leading economists, econometricians, methodologists, educationists, theatre persons in the country. The Centre has initiated many innovative programmes in such varied fields as Economics, Econometrics, Mathematics, Philosophy, Education, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Social Sciences and Arts and Culture. The activities of the Centre are anchored to the Structural School of Thought, an alternative methodology developed by Professor Bharadwaj in response to the deepening methodological crisis in sciences, including economics and education. This new approach enables one to view self, science and society in an integrated framework.
KHSRC's programmes are aimed at fusing science and spiritualism to enrich life. "Vijnana Vaijayanti" is the most important annual event of the centre. These seminars are unique events that have a common focus namely "Human Flowering".
Studies carried out at the Centre have shown that the methodology implied in the works of Haridasas and the Structural Method is congruent. In view of this and after examining this result from all aspects, the sponsors of the Trust named it as "Karnataka Haridasa Scientific Research Centre".
KHSRC is a registered Charitable Trust under the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950 bearing number E-12579 (Bombay) dated 9-1-1990. It is also registered under section 12 A of Income tax Act 1961. All donations to KHSRC qualify for deduction under section 80-G of the Income Tax Act 1961.
