Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's effort in creating outstanding professionals in all fields is something unique. The Institutions under Her fold are designed not only to impart skills, but also to develop mental strength and the ability to uplift the world. This dream of bringing world-class education to the youth of India has gathered great impetus over the past two decades.
Under Her wise guidance, we have the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, with associated educational institutions for Business Management, Engineering and Medicine preparing young Indians for greater strides in their professional fields. These Institutions have become a Deemed University since 2003, a big step in fulfilling Amma's vision of 'Education for life and Education for living'.
To ensure that young children are well prepared for entry into such Institutions of Excellence, the Mata Amritanandamayi Trust has established a number of Vidyalayams. These Vidyalayams are meant to develop the minds of young students to higher standards of thinking and performance. We are all very happy that Amma has set up one of the Vidyalayams in New Delhi at Saket. This Vidyalayam at Saket is bound to be a leader in the field of modern education.
Parents today are uncertain whether to give their children a western style or a traditional type of education in their formative years. I am very happy to state that at the Vidyalayam in Saket, Amma's team has brought together the best of both Western and traditional Indian culture. The teaching methods are unique. Parents are indeed fortunate that their children have now got this rare opportunity to imbibe the best from around the world at this 'Temple of Learning'.
The team at Amrita Vidyalayam, Saket, has been putting in all their devoted efforts in fulfilling Amma's vision. It is indeed a place where every child can develop its true potential and grow to be an outstanding citizen.
