HYDERABAD: In the good old days, children were put in 'Gurukuls' to develop a systematic way of learning under the able guidance of Gurus. The kids' devotion resulted in them gaining wisdom, discipline and enlightenment. This practice of Arsha Vidya Parampara (the knowledge tradition handed down by sages) developed individuals into healthy and intellectual citizens endowed with timeless knowledge.
In the modern era, in many if not all instances, our education system falls short of including the necessary teachings of our ancient traditions and the value system, which forms the very foundation of every human being.
To fill this gap, Maharshi Dayananda Saraswati Kriya Yoga Samsthan is organising summer camps that blend modern-day activites along with teachings of Vedas.
Founded in 1999 and celebrating two decades of conducting annual summer camps, Kriya Yoga Samsthan's vision is to help children achieve their full potential in academic, creative, personal, physical, intellectual, moral, psychological, emotional and spiritual areas.
Its mission is to become a unique institution of choice that recognises the motivational and learning needs of students and empower them to become lifelong learners and productive citizens of the global society.
It also aims at the overall personality development of the student by infusing practical knowledge through activities and programmes for the furtherance of latent talents.
Discipline, code of conduct, ethics, dignity, excellence, honesty, respect and tolerance are its core values.
This year, Kriya Yoga Samsthan is holding its 20th annual All India residential summer camp where children aged between 8 to 16 years can take part in a three-week programme, scheduled from May 1 to 20.
Also, a day summer camp is being organised where kids between 5 to 16 years can participate. The duration is from April 20 to May 20.
Fitness, Yoga, Vedic hymns and chants, personality development sessions, etc. are part of this programme. Other activities include Vedic Math, arts and crafts, swimming, rifle shooting, archery, horse riding, etc.
Highly skilled professionals, coaches, artistes, sports personalities, adventure trainers, doctors, etc. would be on hand to ensure the participants are looked after properly and trained professionally.
