Sant Shri Asharamji Gurukuls and Public schools are Institutes inspired by his holiness Asharamji Bapu with the divine aim to build a blissful society by presenting the students with time tested wonderful psychological and physical techniques discovered by saints along with the regular studies of modern science.
Gurukul system of education is TRANSFORMING the way we impart education and as well as the education that is being imparted.
Pujya Bapuji has told many a times in his discourses “An educated person can do much good to the society compared to the uneducated. However educated people can also do more harm than the uneducated if human values are not instilled in them.”
In this 21st century when most of the people are driven to the lure of money, status, desires and lust, Sant Sri Asharamji Bapu Gurukuls are demonstrating a picture of austerity, self discipline, benevolence, sincerity, simplicity, veracity, nobility, magnanimity, humility and purity.
With the divine grace of Pujya Bapuji, the vision of India- a super power will be a reality soon and Students of these Gurukuls will play a significant role in that.
What is the need of the hour? What kind of citizens would be ideal for our society looking at its present state of matters? And who are going to be citizens tomorrow, who are going to lead us in future? So many questions all point to a same answer. Children of today are citizens of tomorrow. This is the time to present them with ideas of morality, incorruptibility and nobility. Not just to memorize but to bring it in practice. With this view, Gurukul system of education has expanded itself to several dimensions to provide the right mix of these within the education.
Every child has the potential to become world revered personalities like Swami Vivekanand, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad , Lal Bahadur Shastri or Einstein among others. However the current ‘education’ and ‘examination’ system which is completely based on Macaulay’s thinking makes most of them mere servants & slaves of materialism. Obedience, Respect for elders, Selfless service, Moral Character & other social values are touching a new low every day with crime rate among teenagers on rise. And it is not just illiterate teenagers who are committing crimes but last few years we have seen students belonging to high socio-economic status families getting educated in reputed institutions falling into the trap of illegal activities.
Gurukuls have been setup to bring back the lost system of education of ancient India to create radiant yet humble personalities who can drive their own destiny along with that of the nation & the world itself while achieving the ultimate goal of human birth, “the realization of self as a soul supreme”.
