GURUKUL – OUR VISION
The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in an individual’s life. In ancient India Gurukul system prevailed to take lessons of life practically in the guidance of Guru. Disciples used to reside with Gurus in ashram and spent their prominent growing period of life in the Gurukul with strong moral values, ethics and co-operation. Basics of human life and “art of living was taught by Gurus with equality and disciplined natural environment. Gurukul system thrived on virtual bonding between Guru and shishya, which was way beyond the normal student teacher relationship. Students after completing their studies with the permission of Gurus leave Gurukul to face the world with their own vision, perceptions and courage. In the modern India Gurudev Ravindranath Tagore started school at Shantiniketan modelled on the lines of ancient gurukul system. Taking forward the same legacy of Gurukul system, with broader and unique vision, Anand Vishwa Gurukul & Jr. College came into existence.
In the era of science and technology the basic value based education is diminishing gradually and attributes of an individual like morals, ethics, respect, patience, honesty have become bookish words. There is a dire need of enthusiastic, energetic youth to think differently and attributes like affection, passion, patriotism should be inculcated in them. Anand Vishwa Gurukul is an institution which has it’s ideology structured for holistic development of the student. Respect, responsibility, strong work ethics and moral human values are the pillars of institution. Education is the knowledge of how to use the whole of oneself. Education fails if the school spectrum does not ultimately lead to the preparation for living, understanding and preparation for participation in problems involved in the making of a better world.
