What Bharatiya Vidya stands for

  1. Bharatiya Shiksha must ensure that no promising young Indian of character having faith in Bharat and her culture, Bharatiya Vidya, should be left without modem educational equipment by reason merely of want of funds.
  2. Bharatiya Shiksha must be more formative than informative, and cannot have for its end mere acquisition of knowledge. Its legitimate sphere is not only to develop but also to shape natural talents so as to enable everyone to absorb and express the permanent values of Bharatiya Vidya.
  3. Bharatiya Shiksha must take into account not only the full growth of a student's personality but also the totality of his relations and leas him the highest self- fulfillment of which he is capable.
  4. Bharatiya Shiksha must involve at some stage or other, an intensive study of Sanskrit or Sanskritic languages and their literature, without excluding, if so desired, the study of other languages and literature, ancient and modem.
  5. The re-integrating of Bharatiya Vidya, which is the primary object of Bharatiya Shiksha, can also be attained through a study of forces, movements, motives, ideas, forms of art and creative life- energy through which it has expressed itself in different ages as single continuous process.
  6. Bharatiya Shiksha must stimulate the student's power of expression, both written and oral, at every stage in accordance with the highest ideal attained by the great literary masters in the intellectual and moral spheres.
  7. The technique of Bharatiya Shiksha must involve:
    1. The adoption by the teacher and the Guru attitude which consists in taking a personal interest in the student; inspiring and encouraging him to achieve distinction in his studies; entering into his life with a view to form ideals and removes psychological obstacles; and creating in him a spirit of consecration; and
    2. the adoption by the student of the Shishya attitude by the development of:
      1. respect to the teacher,
      2. a spirit of enquiry,
      3. a spirit of service towards the teacher, the institution, Bharat and Bharatiya Vidya.
  8. The ultimate aim of Bharatiya Shiksha is to teach the younger generation to appreciate and live up to the permanent values of Bharatiya Vidya which is flowing from the supreme art of creative life energy as represented by Shri Ramchandra, Shri Krishna, Vyasa, Buddha and Mahavira and expressed in modem times in the lives of Shri Ramkrishna Pararnhansa, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Swami Vivekananda, Shri Aurobindo and Mahatma Gandhi.
  9. Bharatiya Shiksha, while equipping the student with every kind of scientific and technical training, must teach the student, not to sacrifice ancient form or attitude to an unreasoning passion for changes, not to retain a form or attitude which, in the light of modem times, can be replaced by a truer and more effective expression of the spirit of Bharatiya Vidya.
