Here we are to critically understand the relevance of the ancient Indian education system in modern times. The modern education ethos helped to understand Indian society. Would we like to become novel thinkers or stay in the current system, which deceits mediocrity? India has to think carefully about how much the foreign education system helped her. Time has come back to high-level education that will create ideas.
Indian education is based on learning and understanding. After countless invasions, they only remembered. India is the richest nation in the world in ancient times. He felt that exploitation of natural resources was just as necessary as is necessary. Excessive use of natural resources has not been and has not encouraged. In India, people love nature: plants, wind, fire, water, sun, etc. This proves the respect given to Earth by all living plants and animals. In the Hindu religion it is said that the exploitation of the sea should avoid what is called "samudramantan". Education was regarded as a noble job, the teacher was solemn duty and could not expect to receive remuneration from students. One teacher was committed and accepted the teaching as a mission.
Scientists have also helped reform societies. We may recall the contributions of the major economists of the Takshashila and Nalanda Universities; Chankaya, who realized that the economic development of the region needed to create an undivided nation: India. He helped Chandragupta to create the Mauryan Empire, which directed the entire subcontinent and beyond. This empire has recently introduced the system that has given us the ethical standards that the Indians still appreciate. The level of education was high and people came from far away to study all the topics in India here. The Indians also worship the goddess goddess of "Saraswati". They celebrate even today with great celebration.
Hindus have a function where children need to be led to learning, and this is India's culture. Indian society is based on education. People in education receive the highest position in society called the Brahmins. In ancient times, it had to work very hard to be brahmin. At that time it was not born. It was his profession to become brahmin. The brahmin was unable to raise money for education. Education in ancient India was free for everyone. The kingdom would finance education. India is a country with low literacy but high education. People know about life, nature, plants and their importance, and so on.
The Indian education system was based on the principle of full development; mind and emotions. The Indian system placed great emphasis on the development of the ethical base and therefore introduced the brahmacharya system. During this period, the student must only learn. The Indian system has placed emphasis on learning in practice. It was indeed based on religious practices and religious acts. One must be aware that religion at that time was only a lifestyle and did not interfere with education. One had to follow a strict lifestyle that he still had to follow. Athavaveda is an ancient book detailing the educational section; the system and methods to follow.
However, there are bugs. Education was limited to those who deserve it, not everyone. Second, Guru (pedagogist) is centric, that is, all the things that the guru had to depend on and his knowledge was perfect. Buddhism democratized education, enabling everyone to learn. This has helped to educate the education and institutionalize the formation of universities. Buddhism does not deviate from Hindu education systems, but has made it more widespread. Here, too, the teachers and students were religious people and had to follow strict rules. Even here he was not completely free from the old Guru System. Even Buddha said, "Buddham saranam gachchami" (Come to Buddha to enlighten). Remember, in ancient times, the great saints searched for their own and advanced knowledge that was contrary to what Buddha said. However, he concentrated his knowledge concentration system with some hands. This has diluted the quality of knowledge, but this has improved the general understanding of people in India.
This has also created a bond between people living in India who keep the country together. This is the secret of universe in India's diversity. A diverse country has become a population with the same principle of life as the achievement of mokshya (eternal happiness).
Indians have always attached great importance to education, which would improve the ethical standards of the population. The resilience of the ancient Indian educational system has been repeatedly and again proved. Since the early stages of the foreign invasion, India has lost all the material riches of India, but not the Indian level and superiority of our Indian culture. This is because of the foundation of the Indian education system. Others talk about ethics, but the Indians are practicing through education.
The purpose of the Indian system, as I think it is:
1. The immediate goal was to force every student to become a useful member of society to be faithful to all the other ashrams of life.
2. The goal was to create a solid and good character through moral values.
3. The Indian education system differentiated between mere scholarship and full education.
4. The purpose of the system was to develop a complete personality.
5. Thereafter, civilization and social tasks were reinvented. In ancient times, India was a society that was mainly governed by social laws that gave us strength. It is the only society where the social system of business activity was so strong and independent that we survived despite foreign invasion and rule.
6. Indian education has promoted social efficiency and happiness. We all know that there are examples in our ancient book that help society.
7. The ancient education system taught the preservation of national heritage and culture, so we still have a culture that differs from other societies. This is our strength, and in a few days we will be able to recreate our national pride. This has been continuing since the ancient times. The strength of our ancient education is that we live as a nation.
Then the question is what made a mistake? Our education system was embedded in shell because it had to be protected from foreign influence. The violent massacre of the culture of foreign invaders has made us extremely introverted. The openness of our society is lost, and formal education has become less. This has ruined the ability of our scientists to expand knowledge. The burning of well-established educational centers was scared by people. The crowd lost the desire to learn because it did not appreciate the home knowledge. People drifted from the formal learning process and allowed all kinds of raw practice in our society. Indian society has lost its basic ability to acquire and exploit the benefits of knowledge. The body of knowledge became stranger, which was only a rare commodity, only the rich could afford. The British rule exploited this deficiency and introduced a system that meets the requirements of the empire. The system did not encourage copying. This practice still exists in the Indian education system. It does not support boys to make their own opinion on a topic.
We stopped learning and considered all of our ancient texts as part of religion. We must renew our education system, which contains the most important theory of our old system tested up to the time. We need to re-introduce the concept of self-control that was in society. This will prompt our people to evaluate the need for ethical norms. Yes, let's return to our relationship between education and society, which was determined by our system that we have examined. Some 2500 years ago or so high quality books are so high that today's people can not write. This was the level of our original research, why and when we lost this ability, it is still a cause for concern. This must be renewed and the educational system in India needs to be restored, as we want it to; the full development. Copying the West has not helped and does not help in the future, it must be acknowledged at the same time. We believe in the ethical values of society and in no way jeopardize it. Society has lost thousands of years and do not waste any time on Indian education.
