Neohumanist Education

Global Association of Neohumanist Educators

Shrii 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.
