Therefore, we want to prepare enlightened and intelligent students at patanjali gurukulam. The graduates of our institution must not depend on others to search job.

Introduction

Patanjali gurukulam was inaugurated on June 3, 2017 under the kind guidance and blessings of Param Pujya Yogarishi Swami Ramdev Jee Maharaj and Shradheya Acharya Balkrishna Jee Maharaj. Patanjali gurukulam is the junction of sanatan arya knowledge tradition of vedic gurukul set up by ancients saints and modern science, technology and professional educational system of modern era.

Presently, this divine prakalp of education is being developed in three branches. First, second and third are being run at patanjali gurukulam devprayag, yogagram and patanjali yogapeeth-2 respectively where 250 students are studying in ancient vedic knowledge tradition.

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.

Achievements of gurukul

Apart from imparting education, various co-educational activities are provided for the students for their overall development like sports and exercise competition, singing songs, quiz and impromptu competition, writing competitions in three languages.

“Patanjali gurukulam is the junction of sanatan arya knowledge tradition and modern education system. At patanjali gurukulam apart from modern education, we are developing the great leadership through refinement. Earlier, great leadership were groomed at gurukul where the students had capacity to define true and false through studying shashtravidya, polity and economics apart from veda-vedang. The honest, patience and righteous people had prominent place in the family, the society and the country. Unfortunately, the country’s leadership is being groomed at convent schools, Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Massachusetts. Today, experts, leaders and intellectuals lack the sense of spiritualism, India, and self esteem. We are developing human beings filled with a virtue of India, spiritualism and self esteem through patanjali gurukulam and other educational institutions. Patanjali gurukulam will play a pivotal role in grooming the great citizen for the country.”
