Saints should take the initiative to ensure children are provided education on Dharma : Guru Maa Bhuvaneshwari Puri, Srikulam Ashram and Srividya Van Vidyalaya

Vaishvik Hindu Rashtra Mahotsav (2024) Day 3 – Indian Education System

Guru Maa Bhuvaneshwari Puri, Founder, Srikulam Ashram and Srividya Van Vidyalaya, Udaipur, Rajasthan

Ramnath Devasthan, Goa – Students learn many things, but not about Dharma. Students should be taught about Dharma at an early age. Information on matters like the correct way to do namaskar (Offer obeisance), using the japmala (Rosary), pradakshina (Circumambulation), naamjap (Chanting the name of a Deity), our national heroes, our Deities, should be instructed at an early age. Small courses (capsule courses) should be prepared to impart education on Dharma. It is essential to impart education on Dharma to students attending convent or private schools, because there is no system to provide it to them now. Apart from imparting education on Dharma, small gurukuls should be also created.

We started Gurukul with 3 children. Now parents queue up to enroll their children in our Gurukul. Today, parents choose good sanskars (values) for their children over English speaking skills. Students are in dire need of education on Dharma. All the Saints should participate in the mission to provide education on Dharma to Hindu children. Everyone should educate at least 5 people. If children obtain instruction on Dharma, the conversion activities of missionaries will automatically stop.

Only Sanatan Sanstha provides education on Dharma in a scientific language

While praising Sanatan Sanstha’s contributions, Guru Maa Bhuvaneshwari Puri said that many organisations and institutions provide education on Dharma, but they do not have complete knowledge. Most of the places have denominational information. Only Sanatan Sanstha provides comprehensive and scientific information on Dharma.
