The Veda Vidyalayam at
VKL Gayatri writes about this unique initiative in expressbuzz.com
Veda Vidya is a residential, eight-year course, and integrated post-graduation takes 12 years.
After the course, one has to take a test in yagna, yaga, aagama and mantra-related rituals.
An interesting aspect is the effort to blend the modern with the ancient. IT mingles with Vedic learning here. Thanks to a donor from Chennai who gifted systems, printer, scanner and a copier, the students are learning to use computers for astrological computing.
Women teachers lend another touch of modernity to this unique Vedic school. P Kameswari, a retired teacher with a great command of the Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Bhagavatham, is guest faculty and lectures on the Puranas.
‘Although the 12-year course is tough and quite long, it is nevertheless a big draw. Traditional pandits too are sending their children to the Vidyalaya,’ says Trust president Acharyula Veerabhadra Rao.
