Legacy - MIT PUNE's Vishwashanti Gurukul



Dr. Vishwanath Karad at MIT Gurukul 'Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man'

- Swami Vivekananda

This single phrase sums up the entire vision, mission, and philosophy behind the establishment of Vishwashanti Gurukul, an IB World School. MAEER’s MIT is known for imparting value-based education from KG to PG for more than two decades. Modernization, high-end technological advances and intellectual progresses, unfortunately, have not contributed to the building of a great character.

We shoulder the responsibility to mould the future by training the younger generation. We strongly feel that this is the era to revive the age-old Guru Shishya Parampara for the sake of the younger generation, who will become the global citizens of tomorrow. As the world is increasingly turning into a global village, the advent and advancement of technology has only increased the pace of life. An effort has to be made to make the youngsters aware of their ancient Indian culture and the deep-rooted ethos of the holy soil of our country. The Gurukul system is the perfect way to blend the modern technological advancements and the ancient Indian culture to create a new breed of winning personalities.

Yoga Session at MIT Gurukul This time-tested education system of ancient India develops an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bond between the Guru and the Shishya. The Guru takes the Shishya from the darkness of ignorance towards the enlightenment of knowledge. He guides the shishya not only to pursue knowledge, but also builds character.

Today what we desperately need is not advanced technology, but men and women of strong character who are self-disciplined and capable of being global citizens making the utmost use of technology for the benefit of mankind.

Let's not forget that a nation is always built by disciplined, cultured, devoted and educated citizens who have full faith in themselves and the nation. This faith and discipline can be best imbibed in children at a tender age which will compel them to concentrate on character building and develop a sense of cross-cultural tolerance, co-operation and harmony.

Vishwashanti Gurukul, an IB World School is committed to these ideals and aims to incorporate such qualities in its students to make them physically strong, mentally alert and spiritually elevated.
