Exemplary Role of the EducatorsShrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar inspired the establishment of the global network of Neohumanist schools and institutions. In 1990 he founded Ananda Marga Gurukula (AMGK) as the Board of Education for Neohumanist schools and institutes around the world.

VISION OF ANANDA MARGA GURUKULA

The Sanskrit word “Gurukula” (pronounced gurukul) has the following etymology: Gu: darkness; ru: dispeller; kula: an institution. Gurukula is an institution which helps students dispel the darkness of the mind and leads to total emancipation of the individual and society at large.
Ananda Marga Gurukula is engaged in creating an international network of Neohumanist Schools and Institutes to hasten the advent of a society in which there is love, peace, understanding, inspiration, justice and health for all beings.

OBJECTIVES OF ANANDA MARGA GURUKULA

  • To serve humanity with neohumanist spirit and to acquire knowledge for that purpose.
  • To establish a strong base in Anandanagar and around the world in order to carry on the legacy of its founder for the benefit of future generations.
  • To provide a sound and conducive environment for students for their physical, social, intellectual, creative and spiritual well-being.
  • To promote ethical values in individuals and implement these values in the management of projects, schools and institutions.
  • To establish and maintain schools and special academic institutions around the world as well as a cyber-university.
  • To initiate teacher education programs to improve and upgrade the quality of education on all academic levels.
  • To promote Tantra, Neohumanism and PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory) as the foundation for building a universal society.
  • To initiate intellectual dialogues and research for all-round renaissance of society.
  • To facilitate the placement of volunteers across cultures to help build meaningful relationships and to support community and social change projects.
  • To support the building of a global eco-village network (Master Units)
  • To encourage the development of micro-enterprises for sustainability of social service projects.
