Proclamation 100116 of September 28, 2021
KAILASA celebrates the International Day for Universal Access to Information on September 28, 2021, to highlight the relevance and importance of the right to information which is an integral part of the right to freedom of expression to empower and enhance the livelihoods and contribute to the social and economic development of all communities. This day marks KAILASA’s achievement of the knowledge repositories that have evolved for the last 26 years through intense determination to collect, maintain and preserve sacred Vedic sciences for the distribution of authentic information to one and all.
The great Hindu civilization comprising of 56 nations, 200 states, 1700 provinces and 10000 sampradayas (spiritual and religious traditions) has been a source of a phenomenal volume of knowledge repositories about 100 million scriptures that gave birth to numerous advancements in fields including health, governance, law, banking & accounting, architecture & civil engineering, performing arts, medicine, surgery, botany, chemistry and metallurgy, music, agriculture, astrology, shipbuilding, manufacturing, food sciences, etc.
Over the last few centuries, much of the sacred knowledge, education system, lifestyle, and original fabric of Sanatana Hindu Dharma was diluted, lost and destroyed by the combined forces of anti-Hindu elements and their political upheaval, colonialism and religious persecution that systematically ended millennia of Hindu Swarajya or self-rule. This movement was motivated solely by annihilating the local indigenous Hindu cultural fabric of Indians which inevitably roped the enlightened-centric knowledge. Myriad scriptures were burnt away in ashes out of which 20 million sacred scriptures were protected and saved by our brave ancestors.
These 20 million Vedic scriptures and Sciences are being revived in KAILASA for escalating the science of Enlightenment to humanity and imparting the experience of superconscious breakthrough through free access to information.
The celebration of International Day for Universal Access to Information is a reminder to protect sacred knowledge and awakening to work towards the revival of the Enlightenment-centric knowledge of Hinduism.
The International Day for Universal Access to Information provides the platform to internalise and realize the tremendous progress we have made by adhering to the principles of Sanatana Hindu Dharma and awakened us to revive other fragments of the Vedic knowledge that comprises of many indigenous spiritual and traditional information for the peaceful coexistence in the world. KAILASA has played an integral role in empowering and facilitating citizens around the world to their right to information and knowledge in Hinduism, and its principles through the provision of a phenomenal volume of Hindu peace literature in the physical and digital forms abiding by the cosmic law that everyone has the right to seek, receive and impart information for progressive and inclusive knowledge societies.
We reaffirm that free, fair, and authentic information is essential to driving intellectual growth and ensure the unbroken chain of Vedic knowledge is passed down for the prosperous future of humanity.
