Messages From Dignitaries


Abdul Kalam I am delighted to know that Darshan Education Foundation is organizing a seminar on “Building Bridges through Education” on 27th Sept 2008. The seeds of peace in the world have their origin in the righteousness in the heart of every individual. Such righteous citizens lead to the evolution of an enlightened society. Education with a value system has to be so designed that righteousness in the heart is developed in young minds. That should be the mission of education. The prime learning environment is five to seventeen years of age. This reminds me of an ancient Greek teacher saying, “Give me a child for seven years, afterwards, let God or Devil take the child. They cannot change the child.” This indicated the power of great teachers and what they can inculcate in the young minds. I am sure, the seminar on “Building Bridges through Education” will be addressing the promotion of such a society through holistic education. My greetings and best wishes for all participants of the Seminar and success in their mission of promoting value-based holistic education in our society.
Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, Former President of India.

Archbishop Vincent M. Concessao Congratulations to Darshan Education Foundation on the completion of its fifteen years of service. I am glad to learn that you focus on the celebration of Human spirit, as ultimately that is what really matters. It is not enough to know more and do more and have more. All this must lead to becoming more, more human and more compassionate. Completion of 15 years is a good opportunity to ensure that goal is seen more clearly and pursued more zealously and effectively. I wish Darshan Education Foundation all the best.

I am happy to learn that Darshan Education Foundation will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary on 14th February, 2011. It is gratifying to note that the Foundation, under the able guidance of Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, has established a chain of seventeen schools in India and abroad imparting quality education by amalgamating education with spirituality. Needless to say, this kind of approach to education inculcates in young minds the good human values for which our civilization has been known for centuries.

Darshan Education Foundation has involved itself in providing purposeful, holistic education through a curriculum involving spirituality. Life without purpose is spiritless. Spirituality provides beauty of heart and a clear mind. This beauty, truth, and friendship are great virtues of life. Darshan Education Foundation aims to provide this purpose in their educational system. After all, they have the blessings of His Holiness Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, a renowned, distinguished scientist and spiritual Master. I wish the foundation great success in their mission to create young people who will contribute towards a peaceful, spiritual and knowledgeable India and the world at large.

I am pleased to know that the Darshan Education Foundation is organizing a Seminar on the theme “United and Unique – Education for a Peaceful Planet” on 26th Sept, 2009 . As the world approaches the beginning of a new millennium, it is not surprising that building a culture of peace will be a slow and uneven journey. In a way, education and transformation for a culture of peace constitutes a challenge. My greetings for all participants of the seminar and all best wishes to carry the message emanating from the Seminar and cultural presentation far and wide.

Prof. K. K. Aggarwal

Friends, every child when born, I believe, is a peace loving child. And it is we who probably spoil his nature; it is we who take him to the wrong direction from a peace-loving human being to a human being who starts believing in conflicts, believing in hatred, and so on and so forth. And, therefore, education is the means which will have to come in to correct the situation. I remember the famous sculptor of Michelangelo. He created a beautiful statue, and a friend of his said, “Out of a piece of stone you have created this beautiful statue.” The sculptor said, “This statue was already within the stone. I have not created it. All I have done is, I have chiseled off the undesirable pieces which were around the statue and which were masking the statue.” I think, friends, in the same way, a child, who is born by the kindness of God, is a peace loving child. In the name of education, we have started believing in stuffing him with more and more information, rather than chiseling him off to make sure he remains a peace loving person. If we give that holistic shift to the educational paradigm, we believe we’ll be able to do much better. And that seems to be the aim of Darshan Education Foundation. I compliment them for their effort and believe that all of us should join hands to make it a grand success.

I am glad to place it on record. To the extent of my information, Darshan Academy schools are the first in the country that have realized the need of harmony through education in today’s conflicted world and are inculcating the spirit of harmony among the school children by including the subject of the spiritual curriculum in all the schools being run by Darshan Education Foundation all over the country.

It gives me great pleasure to learn that Darshan Education Foundation which runs Darshan Academy Schools, is greatly focusing on the signs of the times having integrated approach to education and doing their best to “ Teach Peace Reach Peace”. The foundation is working tirelessly to realize the vision of the Founder Chairman with the commendable objective of promoting peace. Everybody in the world is looking for peace. Everyone talks peace yet is not at peace. Let peace begin with self and be radiated to others. Let it spread from self to family, family to society, society to country and country to the world making it a peaceful place to live in. I extend my heartiest felicitations to all the members of Darshan Education Foundation and Darshan Academies for bringing out a Souvenir on this occasion. I wish and pray that the vision of the Founder comes true in near future.

I am pleased to learn that Darshan Education Foundation is hosting its Fifth Annual Seminar on the theme “Teach Peace Reach Peace”. A very appropriate theme in the light of what is happening in the country today. It is heartening to note that Darshan Education Foundation is trying to inculcate in the minds and hearts of its students the values of peace, love, human dignity and welfare of fellow human beings. The need of moral and spiritual values in today’s world cannot be overemphasized. Our young students are the future of society and the country and I pray that they will be able to bring about a culture of tolerance, understanding, justice and forgiveness to create a civilization of love, happiness, peace and unity. My best wishes to the Founder Chairman of Darshan Academy Schools, the Management, Staff and Students in achieving their goals.

My warm greetings to the Darshan Education Foundation on the occasion of its annual seminar being held on 25th September 2015 with the theme: ‘Enlightening Minds and Illuminating Souls’. We are now well into 21st century. When we look back on the 20th century, we can see clearly that while there were important human inventions, particularly in the fields of science and technology, it was also a century of bloodshed. This painful experience came about because many people assumed that problems could be solved through recourse to violence. Learning from past mistakes, we should make this new century an era of dialogue, peace and compassion. Those of you, students of Darshan Academy are the seeds of a better future. You are the ones who can make this happen. How can we go about this? Generally speaking, we all share the same basic human nature of seeking happiness and wishing to avoid suffering. But somehow, we fail to realize that our future as human beings is interdependent and that every one of us not only has the right to be happy and to live in peace, but also has a responsibility to work for the happiness of others and actively contribute to creating a more peaceful world. As individuals what is important is that we generate peace within ourselves and cultivate close, warm- hearted feelings for others. These qualities are a sound basis for friendship and peace. We can acquire them through training our minds, which is all the easier when we are young and our minds are still flexible and clear. All we need to do is try. I also wish to offer my congratulation and prayers on the occasion of its celebrating 20 schools in 20 years within India and abroad.
