From a feudal, quiet sleeping society, our country is today marching into the modern, fast, electronic age with our heads flaming with material ambitions and our hearts shrunk into ugly selfishness. The overemphasis of materialism has made individuals twisted and ugly in their essential cultural grace.
The politician, the economist and the scientist cannot see anything beyond the material world when they shouldn’t be so. Their job is to organise and create a rich, prosperous and peaceful world around, with technology contributing to the comforts and achievements of the members in the society. The educationists have to bring about enhancement in the performance of man, the result of which will be a cultivated inner discipline and larger vision.
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.
