Message from the Chancellor
India has had outstanding position in education, wisdom, literature, music, art and culture for time immemorial.
स्वं स्वं चरित्रं शिक्षेरन् पृथिव्यां सर्वमानवाः।। ( मनु-2/20 )
Or all nations across the globe used to come to India to take spiritual initiation and learn knowledge.
Till eighteenth century, India had standing position from educational, economic and social perspectives. India had 18 percent partnership in world market and used to contribute twenty seven percent to total global income. Literacy rate was 27 percent whereas 7,32,000 primary and secondary Gurukuls were actively educating as substantiated by German scholar-Max Muller, English scholar- W. Litner and documents of recent British government. There were more than fourteen thousand higher educational centers imparting education on at least 18 different subjects-Mathematics, Astronomy, Astrology, Cosmology, Physics, Geology, Metallurgy, Philosophy, Surgery, Medical science and Technology, Management etc.
Outside political forces played a dirty game to enslave India for centenaries by destroying her glorious and prosperous knowledge tradition. Presently, we have 450 universities, 15 thousand colleges and 13 lakh primary and secondary schools in India. She has world renowned educational institutions imparting education on science and technology and management but they are unable to produce cultured, socially empathetic and self-managed youths.
We wish to incorporate Yoga, life management, divine culture, good manners, Vedic rituals, history and other streams of indigenous knowledge as an inseparable part of teaching learning. We hope to establish indigenous educational system and mould youths as role model and successful persons of the world by instilling universal values and awakening their hiddendignity and divinity.
University of Patanjali will serve as an ideal Gurukul of Vedic Sage Tradition and is firmly determined to develop professionally competent, self managed and socially empathetic youths.
