Gurukul is providing a blend of modern and vedic education to children so that children can have the best of both the worlds - spiritual and material. It provides knowledge of Vedas, Upnishadas, Sanskrit Sahitya, Sanskrit Grammar, Nyay Sashtra, Vedant, Yog, Maths, Science, English, Geography, General Awareness and more. Target is to cover Asht-vikrati education of all shakhas of Ved. As of now, there is no such Gurukul in North India. Long term aim is to cover all the shakhas of Vedas.
There are six main objectives of this Gurukul:-
- To empower children with vedic as well as modern education and build a strong character in them and ensure that they can easily adapt to the modern environment after completing education.
- To provide well educated professionals to the society who are rooted in Dharma and who, at individual level, can become idols in their respective fields.
- To become a benchmark for Gurukuls by becoming financially self-sustaining, that is, Atmanirbhar.
- To become a medium of channelising vedic-knowledge for all seekers.
- To preserve and make accessible the teachings of Ved, Upnishadas etc. and the associated knowledge and teaching systems which are becoming extinct.
- To prepare Dharmic scholars who can participate in modern scholarly debates and rebut in scholarly fashion various defamatory myths being propagated about Bharat’s ancient culture, our shastras, our deities and mahapurushas at the national and global level.

Where have we reached so far?
There are 25 students who are getting absolutely free residential education under this initiative. All these students belong to financially deprived families. They are residing inside Gurukul campus along with five teachers, two cooks and three general staff. Complete expenses for the students including education, books, copies, stationeries, clothes and food are borne by the trust.
Few months back, we started Desi Cow Gaushala (A2 dairy milk project). Purpose is to promote desi cow milk (A2 milk) and consequently generate more funds to meet prospective increased day-to-day expenses. At present, we have 12 desi cows and 9 desi calf/bull who are being treated with love like a family member and served with healthy own grown organic food.
Trust’s current funding is partially through small donation from a network of supporters and partly through selling A2 Milk to Lucknow households.
Further to add, we have been asked to vacate the current premises on short notice which has made the situation worst. Current premises was given to us on mutual verbal agreement. We were not prepared for this problem We have managed to buy land for Gurukul and now we have to raise fund to build the minimum required infrastructure else we have to shut down the Gurukul leaving our 24 kid’s education on midway
In order to expand and take more students, we have two challenges right now
- Meet increased operational expenses, and
- Have a better infrastructure.
For infrastructure expansion, we have recently bought a 1.35 lac square feet of land and want to build an infrastructure which can accommodate 125+ students in first phase of development.
We can manage operational expenses through Gaushala but for infrastructural development we need huge financial support as the target of first phase is also significant. We will develop an educational cum residential infrastructure to accommodate a team a 150+ people. Once we are done with phase one, we will build a Maha Laxmi Temple and Yagyashala inside campus.
