The volunteers of Vedic Vidyalayas are reaching out to Hindu families across the country and briefing them about Vedas, Vedic knowledge, traditional education system and Vedic education tradition.
The move aims to promote Vedic tradition among children in Hindu community and to set up more Vedic Vidyalayas in each district of the country. Focus is being laid on making people aware about the right and traditional method of studying Vedas.
The samiti recently organised a webinar on Vedik Gyan Vigyan to promote Ved, Vedic culture and Vedic adhyayan parampara.
Acharya Pankaj Sharma, principal of Maharshi Bharadwaj Ved Vidyalaya, Prayag, told TOI, “We have been connecting with Hindu families to promote Vedic gyan and vigyan and telling people about Vedas, Vedic culture and traditional education system.”
We tell them the difference between old and current education systems and are promoting Gurukul parampara and laying stress that every child should know about Vedas, their importance and meaning in daily life, Sharma said.
“Since we have started the campaign on social media, over 42,000 people have liked the page and are connecting to know more about Vedas and Vedang,” he added.
Two vedic vidyayalas — Maharshi Bharadwaj Ved Vidyalaya (Kesar Bhawan) and Maharshi Bharadwaj Ved Vedang Shikshan Kendra (Mahavir Bhawan) are being run by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
The state government has assured setting up Vedic Vishwavidyalaya at Prayag at the earliest.
