Amrita Vidyalayams’ vision is to instill in our students a strong sense of our cultural and spiritual values, along with imparting the best in modern scientific education.
We provide a rich learning environment where students can excel fearlessly in all facets of their personality – physical, mental, intellectual and aesthetic. This foundation will enable self-fulfillment of their professional, personal, family and social lives.
While maintaining the traditional values of the Guru-Shishya Parampara, we have created a path-breaking paradigm in school education. We aim to meet the needs, hopes and dreams of the children of the 21st century, by harnessing to the greatest extent possible, all that present day cutting edge educational and information technologies offer.
To provide value-based education and mould the character of the younger generation through a system of wholesome learning, so that the earnest endeavor to achieve progress and prosperity in life is matched by an ardent desire to extend selfless service to society, one complementing the other.
We strive to provide the best possible education to the students; one that ensures their holistic development and prepares them for life, resulting in good leaders and responsible citizens.
Provide the best possible education. Amma wants the children to have an education that helps them to develop physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. It is also crucial that they are exposed to India’s vibrant, ancient culture, and are made aware of their inner potential.
Provide an education that ensures holistic development and prepare students for life
A good education equips children to face life’s challenges and remain calm in all adversities. As Amma says, “Gaining mastery over the mind is the real education.” Children are the world’s wealth, and how we guide and train them will make or mar their future.
In ancient times, students were taught what life was really about. They were taught how to live their lives and how to conduct themselves in the world. They developed strong minds and could easily withstand hardships or face obstacles. They were dedicated to Truth and were not afraid of death.
Create good leaders and responsible citizens
Amma wants to transform the youth of India into “lion cubs.” With this in mind, Amrita Vidyalayams all over the country ensure that children develop into their fullest potential. This is made possible by providing students with a positive, stimulating, and caring environment that encourages the fulfilment of individual potential and the growth of self-esteem in academic, social, and personal areas.
Nothing can match the blessedness of being an Amrita child, under the care of Amma’s infinite love and compassion. Amrita Vidyalayams are schools based on Amma’s ideology, that in their formative years, children should be allowed to evolve naturally and spontaneously.
No experience a child undergoes is inconsequential; each experience leaves a long-lasting impression on its psyche. And to be receptive, the child needs to be relaxed in an ambience of love and affection.
Amma Says, “There are two types of education: education for a living and education for life. When we study in college, striving to become a doctor, a professional, a lawyer, or an engineer – this is education for a living. On the other hand, education for life requires understanding the essential principles of spirituality. This means gaining a deeper understanding of the world, our minds, our emotions and ourselves. We all know that the real goal of education is not to create people who can understand only the language of machines. The main purpose of education should be to impart a culture of the heart – a culture, based on spiritual values”.
“The future of the world lies in the hands of the younger generation. Our children are the flowers of tomorrow. They should spread their fragrance and beauty throughout the world. But everywhere, these flowers are in danger of falling prey to worms before they can fully blossom. Tempted into addictions of every kind, subject to pressures on all sides, they wither and even destroy themselves.” – Amma
