This is the culmination of the efforts of a group of dedicated individuals drawn from various walks of life for more than four decades. This was founded by Professor Ranganath Bharadwaj, a leading economists, econometricians, methodologists, educationists, theatre persons in India. The Centre has initiated innovative programs in fields such as Economics, Econometrics, Mathematics, Philosophy, Education, Astronomy to name a few. The activities are anchored to the Structural School of Thought, an alternative methodology developed by Prof. Bharadwaj in response to the deepening methodological crisis in sciences, including education and economics. This approach makes one to view self, science and society in an integrated framework.
The programs of this centre are aimed at fusing science and spiritualism to enrich life. “Vijnana Vaijayanthi” is the most important annual event. The seminars conducted here are unique. The studies conducted here have shown the methodology implied in the works of Haridasa and the Structural Method is congruent. In view of this and after examining the result from all aspects, the sponsors of the Trust named it as “Karnataka Haridasa Scientific Research Centre”.
