On the third day, of the five day seminar on "Writing of Indian Philosophy on Modern Perspective " a number of intensive topics were contemplated at Sanchi Buddhist-Indian Knowledge Studies University on Thursday.
Opening a dialogue with the audience Dr. Rahman Ali, a historian and member of the Indian History Research Council, discussed the "Origin and Development of Architecture of Indian Temples". Describing the plans of temples in Vedas, he highlighted on their description of the elevation (horizon) and how their decoration (beauty) has been done. He also mentioned that Vedas have been so precise about the pillars, halls and circles of temples that on the basis of divine knowledge, people are teaching everyone of this period to build a temple.

During his speech, Dr. Rahman Ali also displayed pictures of 32 temples in the country and explained that there were similarities in his architecture and construction. “Architectures show an accurate mathematical accounting, geometry and logic. They say that an inch of measurement has been described from the foundation to the summit. All this is written in Vishnu Dharmoortha Puran,” he said addressing the gathering. He also displayed pictures of the temples built in Nagar style and told that for decoration of such Bhandarda temples, there are pictures of the members of the Shiva family in all four directions. The summit is compared to Kailash Mountain.

Dr. Asha Mukherjee of Santiniketan presented the concept of religion of Nobel laureate Master Rabindranath Tagore. Dr. Mukherjee said that Tagore presented the philosophy of humanism in his book ‘Religion of Man’. According to her, the humanism which Tagore presented through this book is close to  Advaita Vedanta philosophy. Tagore always said, “As soon as I separated from God, I became free to worship God". Dr. Asha said that Swami Vivekananda was also impressed with this statement of Tagore. Vivekananda also followed the philosophy of this humanism. Swami Vivekananda always said that, “I am the servant of Lord who is called ignorant people”. According to Dr. Asha Mukherjee, Rabindranath Tagore used the term "Sadhana" first and presented the immediate social solution through Vedanta.
According to Dr. Asha Mukherjee, people consider Guru Rabindranath Tagore as a great poet while he was also a great philosopher, musician and also a painter. The concept of Tagore was that there should be a central body called Bharatiya Darshan Parishad in India which would work in the field of all Indian Philosophy and work to compile it. It was not possible for Tagore to be made but later on this concept ICPR Indian Philosophical Research Council was formed. Although Rabindranath Tagore was made the first President of the Indian Philosophical Congress According to Dr. Asha Mukherjee, Rabindranath Tagore had worked on experimental evidence in philosophy and he believes that his efforts are of all time and universal. All of Tagore's works were based on Krishna and Arjun's dialogues in Kurukshetra.

Dr. Paneerselvam, Mahatma Gandhi, During the second session, Prof. Godavaresh Mishra presented the views of Shankaracharya to Gautam Buddha.
