For Students

“Education is the Manifestation of the Perfection already in Man”.

Swami Vivekanda’s idea of Education was very clear and holistic, as is evident from these famous words of his.  An individual’s education is not complete unless he realizes and learns to use his true potential.  Our Vedic education system was based on these ideals and hence India could produce great minds like Aryabhata, Sushruta,Bhaskara etc.

But slowly our traditional systems were eroded and  corroded by the colonial ideas of education as a means to get job in the British India.  A report from Lord Macaulay on Education system in 1835 reads like this..

“I propose that we replace India’s  old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”
By embracing the western Education System blindly, we have been rolling out millions of unemployed and unemployable youths year after year, as it does not empower an individual on the moral and spiritual aspects of life which form the core of any healthy society.

Swami  Vivekanada’s fight against such harmful practices is still continued in Divine Park through programs such as Vidhyashree , Vidyarthi Deepa and Raja Sangama.
While Vidhyarthi Deepa is conducted by the local Divine Spark s near you,  Vidyashree and Raja Sangama are conducted at Divine Park,Saligrama under the auspicious presence of Shri Guruji and Poojya Doctorji.
