The rising sun of the swamiji schools

With yoga, transcendental meditation, Indian spiritual wisdom and cuisine having won themselves global reputation, India's gurus who had kept their faiths and spiritual traditions alive in remote rural trusts seem to have acquired sufficient self confidence to spread their wings. Dilip Thakore reports

A silent revolution is transforming the contours, especially the cultural context of Indian education, investing it with the rich and hitherto largely ignored spiritual wisdom and values of ancient India. Across the country education institutions promoted by charitable trusts headed by Hindu seers and saints are mushrooming, drawing students from all sections of society.

For example, the Mandya (Karnataka)-based Sri Adi Chunchanagiri Maha-samasthana Math (trust) headed by the revered seer Sri Sri Sri Balaganga-dharnath Swamiji has promoted over 375 education institutions dispensing primary to tertiary level education mainly in rural Karnataka, but latterly in Bangalore as well where it has established an ayurvedic college and the state-of-the-art BGS International School at an estimated cost of Rs.15 crore.
