Delight-based Pedagogy

सा विद्या या प्रोमोदिनी

That is Education which gives lasting Delight

According to Vedic wisdom, the primary pursuit of all creation is delight. The obstacle to delight is limited perception and power. Removal of limitation can only come from knowledge of the tattva (essential nature) of things behind appearances also called as dharma. Hence, dharmic perspective means awareness of the true tattva and action in accordance. The purpose of education is to delve into the true tattva of things and hence, it is the only path to lasting delight. Vedic knowledge provides the most comprehensive and self-consistent understanding of the tattva of the universe (both matter and consciousness). While the western knowledge aims to achieve the same its conception is not as comprehensive.

Effective education requires acquiring the following meta-learning skills: grahana (keen observation), dharana (retention and recall), karana (execution: ability to make things happen), tattva vicharana (scientific inquiry: grasping the inherent nature behind appearances) and samvedana (sensitivity and empathy: resonating with the feelings of others, to understand other perspectives). Modern education has no direct method to teach these skills whereas gurukula education explicitly hones them.

Effective education requires acquiring the following meta-learning skills: grahana (keen observation), dharana (retention and recall), karana (execution: ability to make things happen), tattva vicharana (scientific inquiry: grasping the inherent nature behind appearances) and samvedana (sensitivity and empathy: resonating with the feelings of others, to understand other perspectives). Modern education has no direct method to teach these skills whereas gurukula education explicitly hones them.

The objective of this project is to develop a novel method of pedagogy that brings back the positive aspects of the gurukula approach in modern conditions and bring back joy in learning. To do so we cater to the demands of various aspects of human self, called the koshas. We focus on inculcating the following traits in the student: curiosity, self-learning, summarization, competition, application and teaching. Each trait gives a different kind of joy. We augment the pristine gurukula approach with additional traits drawn from the best of modern education to make education enjoyable and effective.
