Gurukuls have existed from the Vedic ages. The etymology of the sanskrit word "GURUKULA" is Gu: Darkness; Ru: Dispeller; Kula: an institution. Gurukul Vidyapeeth is a revival of that ancient tradition and takes pride in following the blend of analytical studies with the spiritual & Intellectual development that help students dispel the darkness of mind and leads to total emancipation of the individual and society at large. At Gurukul Vidyapeeth spiritual development has always been an interest of administration. Spirituality is not religion. At Gurukul, student development enriches value and beliefs, emotional maturity, moral development, spirituality, and of self-understanding in the students, and are regular features.
The present day educational system is in the process of migrating to experiential learning methods. This may seem to be a break through in the field of modern education but if we carefully observe, the ancient Vedic education model incorporated these principles. This model laid more emphasis on personal understanding and realization on part of the learner, than parrot like cramming. Apart from the subject taught, a lot of emphasis was laid on the qualification and character of the teacher and the student, which in present system is conspicuous by its absence. Its only the grey matter which matters and the result is one finds students enrolled for sophisticated curses and degrees but failing to develop a resounding character. Or on the other hand, students often fall into the vices of bad habits and complain of poor concentration, memory, grasping power etc. While relegating it to some genetic deficiency no one tries to look into these problems at the root. TheVedic system however recommended its students to be pure in their habits and thus ensured good quality students. The guiding principle was, “No one can give rapt attention who is not pure in mind. No one can be pure in mind who is not pure in action.
Another striking contrast between the two systems was in terms of the accomplishment of the students. On one hand modern academics recognizes one to be an accomplished scholar if he has something new to offer, which surpasses or disproves the previous theories. The Vedic model trains its students to be innovative while maintaining respect for their teachers and previous scholars. Vedic EducationThe ancient classic SrimadBhagavatam defines personal understanding and realization: “Personal realization does not mean that one should, out of vanity, attempt to show one’s own learning by trying to surpass the previousAcarya(Preceptor). He must have full confidence in the previous Acarya, andat the same time he must realize the subject matter so nicely that he can present the matter for the particular circumstances in a suitable manner. The original purpose of the text must be maintained. No obscure meaning should be screwed out of it, yet it should be presented in an interesting manner for the understanding of the audience. This is called realization.” Thus Vedic model laid more emphasis on developing the right character which is crucial in determining how a person utilizes his knowledge, whether for personal gratification or for communal welfare.
