Vedic Education System In India - About Gurukul System of Education - Sarvajnapeetha

Revival of Vedic Education

The worldwide education web established by the likes of Macaulay and Max Muller has stripped India and the world of an education system designed for human enlightenment. It reduces the students to be a largely non-involved entity, being fed words, ideas, concepts, theories and theologies continuously. The student becomes a conduit for limited, narrow and recycled information which they process but are unable to access fresh knowledge from the depth of the cosmos for living enlightenment and manifesting new discoveries and powers.

The Gurukul system of education of ancient India was designed to give birth to enlightenment in human beings, relying on the art of transmission of knowledge, through a process of initiation that happens between an awakened Guru and a student. With this initiation, the student is enabled to effortlessly access, on demand, new forms of knowledge yet outside the human domain.

Gurukul is Education Centric

Gurukul means Guru's home - becoming a part of the Guru's family.
Gurukuls are not teacher-centric but edcuation centric, allowing students to develop and invent on their own. They are given the freedom to explore their highest creativity. Guru is the Divine guide and support for their explorations, the light in the dark and the hand that raises them if they fall.


"My Gurukul kids will not use their body as a PC that merely processes information that is fed to it. They will function as the internet, accessing knowledge from the cosmic archieves and having their own inventions and discoveries!"

– Paramahamsa Nithyananda

Reviving this lost Gurukul system of ancient India, whilst remaining firmly grounded in the Agamas of Vedic tradition, HDH is breathing life back into the verse:

auṁ saha nāvavatu |
saha nau bhunaktu |
saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

AUM. May we both (the Guru and the disciple), together be protected. May we both be nourished and enriched with knowledge. May we both work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together, illumine us both with the sharp, absolute light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. AUM. Let there be Peace (in my inner space). Peace (in the nature). Peace (in the Divine forces).


~ kṛṣṇā yajurveda, taittriya upaniṣad 2.2.2
