Philosophy of ‘patanjali gurukulam’
It aims at developing enlightened and capable souls. Its main objective is to develop the family, the society, the nation and the world at physical, mental, intellectual, spiritual, social, economical and political level.
Patanjali gurukulam and our plans
1) Vedic scholar building scheme- To develop authentic scholars in context of subjects like – grammar, philosophy, upnishad, veda, vedic literature, Indian authentic History and rajdharma.
2) National leadership building scheme of modern India – intellectual and national leadership must be developed to set new record in various fields like- technology, management, arts, music, drama, agriculture, crafts, research and industry. We are instilling glory, utility and attraction of both the schemes in the mind of children. Pujya Swami Jee Maharaj is of view that as per age, the children start to lose possibility of one percent improvement and gain one percent awakening. Through knowledgeable efforts, we can increase this awakening from one percent to 10 percent at physical, intellectual and spiritual level.
