"Getting together is beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is success." Rg-Veda.

I am Dr. Ramakrishnan Srinivasan(S.Ramakrishna Sharma), a 52 year old male Indian hailing from the state of Karnataka. I live in the coastal suburb of Suratkal about 18 kms from Mangalore. I have been teaching English as a second language since 1991 in a governement aided college managed by the Academy of General Education, Manipal, Karnataka. I hold Ph.D degree in English Literature (1998) and a Ph.D degree in Sanskrit (2007). I am multilingual and apart from English, I am proficient in Sanskrit, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam. As the Director of the Centre for Spiritual Resource Development (CSRD), I am involved in research studies in Traditional Disciplines such as Ayurveda, Yoga and Tantra. I am one of the founding members of the Project Mind Foundation for realizing Accelerated Thought (as constituted by David S. Devor, Israel).

I discovered the country page for India on WikiEducator and enlisted myself as a WikiAmbassador on 13 April 2008. The following day, I registered for an online Learning4Content workshop. My mission is to share with the world our rich heritage of India, that is Bharat, and this will help fulfill my vision of realizing global human identity as revealed in the living Vedic tradition. I believe that the wiki environment is conducive to achieving the ideals of being human globally.

Paper on WE in the UGC sponsored seminar in Karnataka

UGC Sponsored State Level Two Day Seminar on New Vistas in the Teaching-Learning of Communicative English was organized at Sri Mahaveera College, Moodbidri, Karnataka on 26-27th Sept. 2008. I have presented a Paper titled "Towards Greater Teacher Empowerment" in which he highlighted the relevant role of WikiEducator Community and it was well received.

"A computer literate, internet enabled teacher is better equipped to create nation-building generation" This slogan inspired me to create a WikiEducator related topic for the doctoral thesis titled ELT Specific Computer Literacy and Internet Enabling : A Study and Survey. The candidate, Sri Naveen( Thenavina ) has registered this title in Dravidian University, A.P., under my guideship.

Global Citizen is one who has the awareness of being human globally and is called Vipra in Sanskrit.

Proper study of the Vedas elevates one to the status of Vipra. So too, a true WikiEducator becomes a Vipra in the above sense.(vishwaprajnavan viprah.)

Marriage as Shakti Worship.jpg
Hindu Marriage is such an occasion in Bharat

Manu Smrti says that "Wherever a woman is adored as Shakti, there all the Devas revel in ecstasy"

"May you be the lamp of the house you enter and may your husband be the fire in you."

A friend is called suhrit, meaning good hearted. Many are my such friends

Lemon is called a magic fruit because it is a panacea for many an illness.

during the academic year 2009-10. The maximum period permitted is 18 months.

Other Resources and Activities

Recently, the former President of India, His Excellency Bharata Ratna Dr.A.P.J Abdul Kalam visited Sringeri, Karnataka. He inaugurated the Vijnana Utsav (Science Exhibition) in our college. During the occasion I presented a Capsule of Breakthrough Insights into Sanskrit as Research Tool to him. Indeed, Sanskrit ought to be declared as the National Heritage Language of India, that is Bharatam .

Interdisciplinary Studies and Research in Sanskrit

This spiritually rewarding pursuit was started academically in 1991. That was with the maiden Paper presentation on the topic "The Role of Fire in the Sacramental Rituals:Fire as a Metaphor."

My Online Presence

Beyond the product and performance is the Performer, the living conscious spiritual being. Expansion of consciousness through spiritual resources begins with Heritage Awareness.

This Group is an online initiative of CSRD.

"Heritage Awareness makes one an Enlightened Citizen."

India is not merely a geographical area. For those who have the cultural sensitivity and spiritual sensibility, India that is Bharatam reveals the inner spiritual land/mind/spirit/scape. And the scientific heritage of Bharatam belongs to the humankind. Be a global citizen by joining this group.

[Many an article and resources are under preparation.]

My last question: Hey teacher, are you a member of WikiEducators Forum in your region? If not, why don't you? If you don't have , why don't you start one?
