Madhya Pradesh CM Dr. Mohan Yadav invites Swami Ramdev to establish Gurukul in state; Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said we need more Gurukuls in New India

Haridwar: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has called for setting up more Gurukuls in the country to not only provide modern education, but also protect India’s moral and cultural heritage. After laying the foundation stone of ‘Gurukulam Evam Acharyakulam’ at Swami Darshanand Gurukul Mahavidyalay in Haridwar, Uttarakhand on January 6, Rajnath Singh stated that at a time when moral values are deteriorating due to imitation of foreign culture, Gurukuls must come forward to provide modern education while incorporating moral values among the youth.

“About 1,000-1,500 years ago, there were many big universities in this country, wherein the Gurukul tradition was prevalent. After that, the country saw foreign invaders nearly destroying that system. During that time, Swami Darshanand ji established this Gurukul which has been illuminating our young generations since then,” Rajnath Singh said.

Referring to the National Education Policy 2020,  Rajnath Singh voiced the Government’s resolve to inculcate moral values in the young ignited minds right from primary education.

Rajnath Singh pointed out that Gurukuls give an impression that they only follow ancient methods of education, but in today’s times they have progressed and become modern. He exhorted the Gurukuls to advance in the areas of emerging and cutting edge technology, such as Artificial Intelligence and quantum technology, along with traditional education, in sync with today’s constantly-evolving times. 

Rajnath Singh underscored the role Gurukuls can play in the cultural development in the country. He made special mention about Yoga and how the ancient Indian practice has been followed by the entire world due to its benefits. 

Our Sanatan culture tells the glory of both Guru and Gurukul: MP CM Mohan Yadav 

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Dr. Mohan Yadav also addressed the foundation stone laying ceremony of Patanjali Gurukulam and Acharyakulam in Haridwar. Yadav said that our Sanatan culture tells the glory of both Guru and Gurukul. Lord Shri Ram in Treta Yuga and Lord Shri Krishna in Dwapar Yuga received their primary education in Gurukul. 

He said it is our good fortune that Madhya Pradesh is also known as the place of education of Lord Shri Krishna. Yogaguru Swami Ramdev has done the noble work of connecting this holy land with education by establishing Patanjali Gurukulam and Acharyakulam in Haridwar. CM Dr. Mohan Yadav, while congratulating and extending best wishes to Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev for this project, invited him to establish a Gurukul and Ashram in Ujjain or any other suitable place in the state.

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Shri Pushkar Singh Dhami, Union Minister Shri Arjun Meghwal, Rajya Sabha MP Shri Sudhanshu Trivedi etc. were present at the foundation stone laying ceremony of Patanjali Gurukulam and Acharyakulam in Haridwar.
