The inner transformation of individuals through knowledge of Vedanta, spiritual practices and service to society, resulting in a happy world around them. We are trying in our Vidyalayas to educate the children to score in the material world following the secular syllabus prescribed by the Government, but in an atmosphere, of spiritual presence. We select, train and therefore expect our teachers to have such a spiritual balance in themselves that they can spread the grace and glory in the classroom. Under such a gracious canopy of moral and ethical charm, we find the students blooming into men and women, self-controlled, disciplined and dynamically striving with a magnificent vision.
