About Us

VISION -

Bharata, or India is known for its rich heritage of some of the world′s most ancient texts on science and knowledge systems. It is the land where the sacred Vedic aadhyatmayoga, spiritual knowledge originated and is being practiced, preserved and propagated from time immemorial. As children of this holy land, we consider it our duty and responsibility to transmit the vast treasure of this Vedic knowledge to our future generations.

With this noble purpose in mind, the Janaseva Trust, known for its relentless service in the field of education for over 45 years, achieved another important milestone by formally establishing the Veda Vijnana Gurukulam based on the traditional pattern in the month of Jyeshtha in the Eshwar samvatsara (1997) on the auspicious occasion of Janaseva Trust’s Ardhamandala (silver jubilee) celebrations.

OBJECTIVES OF THE GURUKULAM -

  1. To preserve the tradition of the Vedas, the Shastras (Vijnana) and Yoga in their original form.
  2. To perpetuate the Gurukula tradition in the modern world.
  3. To cultivate a social-outlook and spiritual insight in the youth.
  4. To prove that the Rishi parampara is still relevant in this modern age.
  5. To teach the Shastras through the right medium i.e. Samskritam and to propagate samskrita conversation.

THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THE GURUKULAM -

The "Shashtra Parampara" (Tradition of Shastra) of Bharatavarsha is held in high esteem all over the world. We believe that this Parampara can flourish only through the Gurukula tradition. Moreover, with the growing influence of Western consumerism in this land of Bharatha, utilitarianism has mushroomed and the young and energetic men and women, solely dedicated to preserving our tradition as their life’s mission, have become rare. In this context, we consider it necessary that the youth take up the responsibility of such a mission in the modern age.

Furthermore, we firmly believe that Vedic and Vedantic scholars must also cultivate a scientific temperament as well as become conscious of their social responsibilities. Scholarliness must shine in good nature. Kshatrabala (Dynamic power) must be well grounded on the Brahmabala (Spiritual might).

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE GURUKULA EDUCATION -

  • The education is for developing the personality and not for gathering information alone.
  • Students learn from their Acharyas in a friendly environment.
  • Study and research are done under the keen guidance of learned scholars.
  • The competence of the students is examined by many sabhas like Ganapati Sabha, Vijaya Sabha, Sankranti Sabha and Yugadi Sabha adopting Shalaka and Pravachana systems.
  • The medium of instruction and communication is Samskritam.
  • The education system is five faceted viz. Veda, Vijnana, Yoga, Krishi (Agriculture), Kala (arts) for total development of the students’ personality.
  • The development of social concern in inculcated in the students through social activities like Nityashakha, Gramasamparka, conducting Samskrita camps and festivals.
  • Regular education is provided to the students without any caste discrimination. And at large, knowledge dissemination is undertaken in the society without any kind of discrimination of caste, gender or age.
  • Students undergo modern education in different universities along with their study of the Veda, Vedanta and Yoga.

Social Work

One of the objectives of the Gurukula is to inculcate in scholars the attitude to serve the society. Towards achieving this end, students of the Gurkula are encouraged to take up social work. Social activities that are taken up by the Gurukula-

Samskara-kendra-s

To develop cultural values and also to instill patriotism in children Gurkula has adopted five neighboring villages and through the students conducts daily cultural sessions. The sessions will include teaching of Patriotic songs and narration of stories. The students of Gurukula celebrate festivals like Rakshabandhan with the people of the villages.

Veda-saptaha

Attracted by western life style people are seldom aware of our own culture. So to spread the message about the values of our culture, Gurukula organizes week-long programmes on the Veda-s in the months of October and April. Students go to various villages. Reside there for a week. Chant the vedas in the forenoon in temples and explain the message of the veda-s to the people of the villages in the afternoon

Personality development camps

In the months of April and October students of Gurukula organize personality development camps for school students. In the week-long residential camps the students of Gurkula instruct about the steps of personality development based on Indian culture. Samskrita classes and daily Pooja methods are also taught here.
