Nithyanand Gurukul starts advent of a new era which is incubator for enlightened beings. It is beautifully flowering with 55 students from all over the world. Gurukul is a Sanskrit term that implies membership in the extended family of the ‘Guru’ or master. It is a type of school where the students reside on site as equals, irrespective of their social standing and learn with direct influence from an enlightened master. Gurukul has a long tradition dating back to the Vedic age. It was designed to awaken from an early age, the extraordinary dimensions in a child through all areas of growth – physical, mental, emotional – and to nurture the child naturally and effortlessly to the peak of his potential into an enlightened being.
Extensive studies on human cognition show that genius takes place when both the right and left sides of the brain are active and working together. This is a rare phenomenon. Children are born with both sides of the brain alert and open for the purposes of gathering information. Standard education and social conditioning only nourish the left-brain, leaving the right-brain to languish. By age seven, most children have lost this right-brain connection, closing down almost completely these activities and rendering the seeds of potential genius dormant.
In Nithyananda Gurukul, traditional teaching is the basis for the enlightened learning imbibed at Nithyananda Gurukul, which nurturs the students to become independent intelligent beings living in tune with life and its fundamental principles of integrity, authenticity, responsibility and enrichment. These practices create beautiful and powerful people devoid of any suffering. The teachings allow children to learn to let their mind reside within itself.
