The Gurukul tradition, which has been affected by the lockdown, has also turned to online education. Students studying in Gurukul through mobile and laptop are acquiring knowledge of Vedas and Sanskrit language through scholars from Dharm Nagri Kashi.
Varanasi. The lockdown in the world’s oldest city of Kashi has struck a deep blow on traditions. The practice of starting the hundreds of years old Gurukul system has intensified. In fact, the closure of the school college is impacting the education system of the students. However, with the help of technical service, efforts are being made to remove the barriers in education. Online education is imparted to students, which these days remains an important source of education for students. In such a situation, the Gurukul tradition, which has been affected by the lockdown, has also turned to online education. Students studying in Gurukul through mobile and laptop are acquiring knowledge of Vedas and Sanskrit language through scholars from the religious city of Kashi. Now Guruji is engaged in shaping his future by teaching his disciples Vedas and knowledge science.
Mr. Ram Narayan Dwivedi, Professor of Sanskrit Department of Kashi Hindu University, has started working with great care to ensure that children’s education is not affected. For those children who have gone to their house in lockdown or students who are trapped in the monasteries, online education is being arranged from Gurukul itself. Students studying in Gurukul through mobile and laptop are taking knowledge of Vedas and Sanskrit language.
Pro. Dwivedi said that the education of Vedas is continuing in Kashi Hindu University. When education stopped completely due to the lockdown, then resorted to online education. He says that he did not have knowledge of this modern black board, but because necessity is the mother of innovation, she took the information of the video and connected it to the students living abroad.
Students’ difficulty became easier
This arrangement being done by Gurukul brought smiles on the faces of the students living in Kashi as well as abroad. Many students studying Vedas and Sanskrit language are also able to complete their studies in lockdown. This need of education of Vedas coincided with the two ages, in which modernism is now being combined with the ancient method.
