Psycho-culturology is a science of grasping human beings from the angle of both the culture and psychology and a further study of comparing literate civilization. From the perspective of psycho-culturology, “The Hierarchicus” model describes the human constant of Hindus, as the clear orientation of living state of Hindus from the system of human beings, which could be referred to a subgroup of the “whole human” model. Centering on the “psycho-social homeostasis”, this model is a system supported by four dimensions of the human constant, including the group, social exchange, cultural mechanism of emotional control and self-cognition, and dominated by the motive power of behavior and leading force, with inherent operating rules. As for the view of Indians from the perspective of psycho-culturology, “The Hierarchicus” model inherits the theory proposed by French anthropologist Louis Dumont and Chinese-American anthropologist Francis L.K. Hus. Besides, Chinese scholar Shang Huipeng supplemented and perfected its connotation. This theory reflects behaviors of Indians and the underlying culture from the dimension of “human-psychology-culture” and comparison of heterogeneous civilizations, which is a brand new perspective and dimension, as well as a research approach meeting the characteristics of Indians. Although psycho-culturology has made beneficial and creative attempts at the explanation of the view of man and established a scientific model of “human system”, it is still a discipline under development, with a huge space for the perfection of theories and subject frame.
