Welcome

Our Institution values and believes our ancient gurukulam system. Gurukulam inculcates in Students the Indian cultural heritage through a rigorous curriculum in its approach to people, knowledge, values, and skills. Commitment to a one-on-one teacher-Student learning relationship is fundamental to the program. The guru-shishya parampara is a hallowed tradition in Hinduism. Other religious groups in India have adapted it into different forms that falls within their religious ideology and framework. A guru dakshina is the final offering from a Student to the guru before leaving the ashram.
