Bhubaneswar, Jan 20:
The Central government has decided to make Indian tradition based moral education a part of the curriculum, RSS Sarsanghchalak (organisational head) Mohan Bhagwat today said in Odisha’s Puri.
Addressing a public gathering held on the occasion of idol installation ceremony in goddess Bimala temple inside the Govardhan Peeth premises of Puri, Bhagwat said, “The Central Government has decided and is consulting teachers who provide moral education to design a curriculum that will have moral education based on Indian tradition as a part of the syllabus, I have been told.”
Similar sentiments were echoed by Shankaracharya of Puri Govardhan Peeth Jagadguru Swami Nischalananda Saraswati and Puri King Gajapati Dibyasingha Deb as well.
“There is a need to look into a curriculum that promotes the spiritual and moral education in our country,” said Deb addressing the audience today.
“The main motive of current education system is to make money. There is no religious significance in it that once made India the greatest among the nations. Without spiritual knowledge, the social values have hit a rock bottom,” the Shankaracharya had said yesterday.
