The Bhagwad Gita and other scriptures of Sanatana Dharma talk about getting rid of the basic ill traits of the human mind. They are kama, lust; krodha, anger; moha, avarice; lobha, greed; mada, arrogance and matsarya, jealousy. To lead a balanced and happy life, from childhood, good spiritual values need to be inculcated. Ancient education system in India emphasized the building of good character. Rabindranath Tagore said, “Education without good character is a body without head”. He added that a disciplined candlelight will illuminate the surroundings but a loose flame will destroy things around. So a basic disciplined life is the most essential quality that our educational system should insist upon to build a progressive nation.
Schools taught also good habits and clean living besides academic subjects. But increasingly, as the world turned more and more competitive, we failed to include Bharatiya Sanskriti, ancient culture, our basic foundation, in the education syllabus. By teaching good values, educational institutions will equip the child to grow up as one who can ably face the challenge of the six negative aspects we tend to give in to:
Sushant case: Bihar govt seeks dismissal of Rhea’s plea in SC
Defer statement recording till SC hears plea: Rhea to ED
Mumbai:Patna SP probing Sushant case quarantined, hand stamped
