shravaNa: The Rashtram Podcast


Welcome to shravaNa, the official podcast of the Rashtram School of Public Leadership. The concept behind shravaNa is inspired by the threefold path of acquiring knowledge in Vedantic traditions: Śravaṇa (listening), Manana (contemplating), and Nididhyāsana (internalising to embody knowledge). Through the rashtram podcast, we enable our audiences to connect with today’s thought leaders and to listen to their ideas and experiences in deeply engaging conversations, with a special focus on Indic knowledge traditions and systems of thought. This, we believe, will set our audiences on the path to contemplating on what they have listened to, facilitating the processes of internalisation and embodiment of received knowledge. It is in this manner that the shravaNa podcast contributes to fulfilling Rashtram’s larger objective of nurturing ‘self-aware’ and ‘civilisationally-assured’ leaders of tomorrow.
