The Upanishads and other ancient scriptures speak of education as a life-long process; It is indeed aptly put 'Education is the progressive realisation of one's own ignorance'. To learn the process of learning is the prime goal of education. Continuous acceptance of experiences with the full placement of value over the unhindered functioning of the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual faculties of an individual is true education and is the route to divinity.
Purity of Thought, Word and Action make for a divine person. The entire gamut of human value systems goad one to harness the mind, polish the intellect and cleanse the heart thus manifesting one's innate Divine nature. A spiritually realised person has a unified view who positively influences the whole world. Such a person is an asset and in the current scenario a need of the hour. Education has to necessarily churn out such effective functionaries who can live to serve others.
quality education, inculcating in them from an early age itself a sterling character for a better tomorrow. Inspiring refinement in manners, amiability of temper, service-mindedness and good conduct alongside excellence in academic pursuits and intellectual development is the cornerstone of the educational philosophy of the Sri Ma Group of Institutions.
Orientation to one's culture and its heritage connects one to the umpteen bounties of nature and fills one with a deep sense of gratitude and supreme peace. The word 'Culture' does not mean mere folklore but the very principles of living that are spoken of in the scriptures as being facets of a Complete Individual. Principled living makes for a noble character, which is the highest virtue. These very principles that bespeak of 'Divinisation of Man' embody the education system in the Sri Ma Group of Institutions.
Serviceful in nature, compassionate towards the world, kind to all living creatures, caring towards even non-living objects with the acceptance that life is all-pervading and such other spiritual values form the character of the children that pursue their education in any Sri Ma School.
Divine Mother Sri Ma, who is the manifestation of Divinity and who is full of Divine love, kindness and compassion is, through a dedicated band of selfless workers, instilling the qualities of love, charity, discipline, dedication and determination in the hearts of the young ones. Mother Sri Ma is continuously facilitating children and is helping them to progressively uncover their inner light; the light that is present in all creation as a spark of the Divine.
Such an education system, with an integrated curriculum and holistic approach to growth of man forges an all round development of the personality upon an individual. All the constituents of this system-the teachers, students, staff, parents and the society as a whole -stand to benefit from the divine aura that encircles goodness of work and spirit, in a field of righteousness and purity. Values that are derived from ideology thus start to reflect in life practices. This makes an entire society spiritual. An environment of optimism, mutual love and co-existence comes to occupy the mental universe with health, happiness, peace, progress and prosperity reigning all around.
Hence, at the Sri Ma Group of Institutions we are ever engaged in adorning children with quality education, inculcating in them from an early age itself a sterling character for a better tomorrow. Inspiring refinement in manners, amiability of temper, service-mindedness and good conduct alongside excellence in academic pursuits and intellectual development is the cornerstone of the educational philosophy of the Sri Ma Group of Institutions.
