WELCOME TO INFINITY FOUNDATION
Infinity Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Princeton (USA), focused on research and education. It specializes in the field of civilization studies applying the Dharma lens to examine a broad range of topics. It disseminates its unique research findings through books, videos and public events.
The foundation seeks to create dialogue that breaks out of the dualities of anti- and pro- globalization forces, of the right vs. the left, of secularism vs. religion, of science vs. spirituality, of economic growth vs. ecological preservation. Globalization can be a positive force but it cannot simply be translated to Westernization of the planet – in cultural norms, in academic frameworks, in knowledge systems and in definitions of progress and patterns of development. To do so has enormous ecological implications in both biological and cultural terms. To create a global family, a “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, requires that indigenous non-Western civilizations get a seat on the table as equals in crafting the frameworks of discourse, rather than simply being used as exotic artifacts to be plugged into an overall Euro-Centric framework. Revitalizing the Indic discourse and helping India find its own voice in this dialogue is a key part of the mission.
The foundation has given over 400 grants for research, education and philanthropy, including grants to leading institutions of higher education, specialized research centers, as well as grants to many individual scholars. It has also organized several conferences and scholarly events in USA and India to bring out a balanced view of the many positive contributions from the Indian civilization.
The foundation has published game-changing original research that is widely disseminated through books, blogs and social media. It has a defined set of themes and goals in which it strives to be the leading think tank.
