Vision of Paravidya Gurukulam

Building society on vedic vision

Civilization can only march ahead with the holistic vision of Vedas. Hence, preservation of Vedic Knowledge gains immense importance. The Vedic Knowledge can be preserved only through the practice of Dharma (What has been propagated by Vedas) and not through any sort of documentation or other methods of preservation. As the Vedas themselves confirm, the practice and propagation is the utmost Responsibility (Kartavya) of mankind.
