Naad Pargaas strives to forge a Shabd inspired culture. Conceptualization of Shabd Philosophy has remained central to our efforts to foster reflective faculties. In this age where intellectual exercises govern faculties of civilization, academic discourses and research have become the vehicles of shaping holistic understanding of mankind’s collective spiritual journeys.

To foster a civilizational model in our contemporary age, we undertake efforts to revitalize Sikh aesthetics and Sikh scholarship. We understand the role of aesthetics in enlightening our cultural vision and refining human sensibilities through creative and enriching higher vision. Simultaneously the role of scholarship remains central to engage critically in historical unfolding of religious tradition.
