Welcome to the maternal home of Adi Shankaracharya, the great spiritual luminary, and the torchbearer of the renaissance of Vedanta couched in reason and logic. It is fitting that this is the Headquarters of the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth. Set in an extensive compound of 10 acres in Kerala’s lush, green country-side, amidst temple shrines and lily ponds, the Chinmaya Eswar Gurukula (CEG) campus offers a serene ambience that attracts aspirants who come in search of peace and solitude from the world over.
Programmes at Eswar Gurukula: This campus offers programmes, not only in the field of Sanskrit, but also addresses the needs of current day education in areas such as Society, Commerce, Management and Psychology. Our goal, here, is to empower students with a sound understanding of Ancient Indian Knowledge Traditions and their practical applications, along with relevant modern subjects.
The path ahead for a graduate from these courses is as follows:
Gain an in-depth knowledge of Sanskrit and Ancient Indian Knowledge Traditions leading to PG and PhD level degrees in the respective domains, and to eventually become a torch bearer of Ancient Indian Knowledge Traditions through teaching and research.
Broaden one’s skill set in modern-day subjects of Management, Psychology, Commerce and others by pursuing PG programs before taking up employment.
Join Public or Private Sector enterprises to contribute to self-development as well as nation building.
Be an entrepreneur in the social or business domain by contributing to the economy.
