Government Sets up Separate Board to Promote Vedic Education

INDIA, January 13, 2019 (Rightlog): According to an Indian Express report, the Human Resources Development (HRD) ministry has accepted the proposal to establish India's first National School Board for Vedic Education- Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB). The move is expected to pacify the anger of the disgruntled section of the supporters of the incumbent government who were not happy with the Modi government because they believe that the present government has done nothing to promote Veda education and Ved Pathsalas and to curtail the over communist influence on the curriculum. There has been a long-pending demand to set up and promote Vedic pathsalas and Vedic education at large level and this seems a big step towards fulfilling that demand.

The Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Vedavidya Pratishthan (MSRVP) - a fully-funded autonomous body under the HRD Ministry- is already working for the promotion of Ved Vidya, and the very same body has given in-principle approval to establish BSB in its governing council meeting chaired by HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar in Delhi on Friday, reported Indian Express. The governing council of the MSRVP has now been ordered to come up with the Board's bylaws in a week. According to the Indian Express report, the Bhartiya Shiksha Board will be set up with the objective of standardising Vedic education. The BSB will draft syllabus, will conduct regular examinations and certificates will be also provided.

This is a good move by India that has ignored its traditions for a western style of education and life. Traditional Vedic education is a protected world heritage Inscribed in 2008 (3.COM) on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity (originally proclaimed in 2003)
