Even without formal gurukul education,some of us will walk on path of आत्मसाक्षात्कार. Don’t you see many around? Don’t you have many examples from last century’s history? From Swami Vivekananda to Aurobindo! So many examples!
Then why Gurukul education?
Ask yourself, is mere Individual’s journey, a goal of education? No!! It is about sustaining the civilization by fine-tuning at mass level, for their birth proclivities and essential non-destructive contribution to the world!!
Mere spiritual journey is not the goal. (As many sects’ run schools promote).
Mere bread-earning skills is not the end goal as modern education imparts.
Education is for man-making. Exceptions don’t count much.You take birth with X type of कर्मिक् and संस्कार baggage, our education system is powerful enough to help you contribute to वैश्विक यज्ञ. That is the power of Vaidik Education!
