gurukul education vs current education

What’s the problem?

There are less than 5000 gurukuls (April 2022) in India compared to 14,94,052 schools (Sep 2020). So Gurukul Education System is nowhere near in challenging current education system on equal footing.

But Gurukul Education System is better than the current education system in every possible way. Want to know more advantages of gurukul system? click below.

Our Inspiration


Back in 2017, when we began working on promoting the Gurukul education system, we had only a vague idea of what Gurukuls do, why we should support them, and how they differ from regular schools.

Over the years, we’ve realized that the Gurukul Education System is the only solution to many of India’s problems.

Our extensive study of various education systems and hands-on experience with the Gurukul system has shown us that the ancient Indian Gurukul System of Education was unique. Its innovations and efficiency remain unmatched even today.

In recent years, especially after the Covid lockdowns, interest in the Gurukul system has surged, leading to the emergence of more Gurukuls. However, many of these are merely residential schools that don’t fully understand the true essence of the Gurukul system.

Vediconcepts is dedicated to supporting and promoting the authentic Gurukul education system and raising awareness about its benefits and functioning among the masses.
