“Do not be proud of wealth, people, relations and friends, or youth. All these are snatched by time in the blink of an eye. Giving up this illusory world, know and attain the Supreme.” - Adi Shankaracharya
One of the most important dimensions of all-around human and societal development is spirituality. To give the younger generation an opportunity to study, learn, imbibe, practice and spread the essence of the wisdom of our scriptures, rishis and God realized masters. AKS University established the “Department of spiritual studies in the year 2012 and various religious texts such as “ ‘Shrimadh Bhagwad Gita’, The Quran’ and ‘The Bible’ are taught as mandatory subjects in all streams.
We aim to develop human beings with refined social sensitivity and community awareness. The department aims at enriching the understanding of the younger generation through lectures conducted by experts in the fields of Philosophy, Indian culture, History and traditions etc.
This will not only enrich our student’s knowledge but also generate right awareness about the diverse treasures that our culture holds. Keeping in view the importance and necessity of spiritual education in India, the Gita has become a part of the core curriculum at AKSU. In modern fast-paced life and competition right from the school, there is a high time need to inculcate moral values among youngsters for building national and humanist character. AKS University is a well-known institution for installing a marvellous record of religious harmony as there are Hindu students studying the Quran and Muslim students studying The Bhagwadgita while upgrading their spiritual and moral level beyond academics.
