"Union of Science and Spirituality
Religion alone will bring peace to mankind."
This sentence sums up the entire vision, mission and philosophy of the establishment of MAEER’s MIT Schools, known for imparting value based education from KG to PG for more than two decades. Although modernization, high-end technological advances and intellectual progress in these years have been a boon to this generation, but unfortunately, have not contributed entirely to the building of a great character.
We shoulder the responsibility to mould the future by training the younger generation with science and morals. We strongly believe that this is the era where we need to revive the age-old ‘Guru Shishya Parampara’ for the sake of the younger generation who will be global citizens of tomorrow. With the world coming closer to the concept of a Global Village, the advent and advancement of technology has only increased the pace of education.
An effort has to be made to make the youngsters aware of their ancient Indian culture and the deep rooted ethos of the holy soil of our country. The Gurukul system would be the perfect technique to blend the modern technological advancements and the ancient Indian culture to create a new genre of all-rounders and ‘winners’.
This age-old education system of ancient India develops an emotional, intellectual and spiritual bond between the Guru and the Shishya. The ‘Guru’ takes the ‘Shishya’ from the darkness of ignorance towards the enlightenment of knowledge. He guides the Shishya not only to pursue knowledge, but also to build character.
Today what we desperately need, more than advanced technology is men and women of strong character, self-discipline and capability of being global citizens who can make the utmost utilization of technology for the benefit of mankind.
Let’s not forget that the nation is always built by disciplined, cultured, devoted and educated individuals, with full faith in themselves and the nation. This faith and discipline is concentrated on character building and developing a sense of cross-cultural tolerance, co-operation and harmony.
With faith in incorporating all such qualities in their students to develop ‘winning personalities,’ MIT schools are committed to these ideals of making them ‘Physically strong, mentally alert, intellectually sharp and spiritually elevated’
