Exploring knowledge systems beyond one’s perspective reveals two approaches: a spiritual one, viewing foreign insights as potential enrichments or replacements for personal perceptions of reality, and an objective lens recognising cultural distinctions. Despite being an alien discipline for nearly a century, academic psychology in India initially adopted Western models, struggling to integrate with indigenous heritage and adapt to local contexts. The need to rediscover knowledge rooted in scriptures and folk practices is evident, yet comprehensive data on the discipline’s growth and impact remain elusive. Nevertheless, Indian psychology, drawing from ancient scriptures and traditions, offers profound insights for modern understanding, particularly in bridging the gap between individual experiences and societal harmony.
