In today’s context, people identify themselves with their profession, religion, race, nationality, language, region or sex. Rarely do they identify themselves as human beings. This narrow sense of self-identity leads to myriad schisms in the world. Spiritual knowledge, that is beyond all religions, rituals, and dogmas, effects an elevation of the consciousness, leading to the embracing of Universal Values and an expanded self-identity.
Such knowledge brings about a change in the outlook of people and makes them see divinity in every aspect of life. Jagadguru Kripalu University will, therefore, aim at making students look beyond narrow geographical barriers and consider the entire Universe as their own family (vasudhaiva kutumbakam). Such lofty ideas were embedded in the ancient Indian system. The education at Jagadguru Kripalu University will be a happy blend of both the ancient and the modern, which will help students develop into global citizens.
The organization is in the process of establishing a University to achieve the objective of raising the standard of education and research in certain specialized areas such as Yoga, Meditation, Spiritual Sciences, and Naturopathy. Jagadguru Kripalu University shall help to fulfill the large void of inadequate spiritual education in the country, and also meet the educational requirements of the region as a whole.
