Life on a Yoga Retreat Living in an Ashram in Vrindavan, India
The basis of the culture of any nation is its education center. This is the place where the future of that nation is built. One such nation builder was the ‘Vedic Gurukul’ system of our ancient India in which the child was made a complete human being.
If the present and future of a nation is to be ruined, then its education system itself will have to be attacked. This is what the Britishers did, first they attacked us. But saw that the source of our energy is our ‘Gurukul’, then they snatched that source from us through convent schools and created a breed of Indians educated in the convent who would pass on to India from generation to generation,
Even after the departure of the Britishers, they could keep them as slaves.
“And today free India is a land of slaves.”
Just think! If you had to choose between a scientist and an ordinary shopkeeper, who would you do as a teacher for your child’s education?
Scientist for sure. Then why are you ruining the future of your children by handing them over to a shopkeeper.
He can teach him to sell things but not to live life, not to buy happiness.
The aim of the Vedic Gurukulam is to convert the same slavery into freedom.”
