History of the trust

Under the high vision of Purani Shree Narayanpriyadasji, Founder of The Gurukul Campus, Bhavnagar and the tenet of Lord Shree Swaminarayan, the foundation stone of the Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul Campus was laid down on 18th Feb, 1978 by the former Chief Minister of Gujarat Late Shree Babubhai Jashbhai Patel.

In ancient times, the education was provided by Rishis and Munies. As the time passed, the Ashram based education faded and became almost nil during the time of Lord Shri Swaminarayan and there was a chaos everywhere.

Lord Swaminarayan suggested that schools should be established for imparting good, positive and pious education and students should be taught the Principles of the Shiksha Patri, since education is what makes a full fledged human being from a child.

Hence, under the SATSANG SHIKSHA PARISHAD, GANDHINAGAR the Swaminarayan Gurukul was established at Sardarnagar, Bhavnagar with the following objectives.....

  • To materialize the principle "Sarvjiv Hitavah" – for the welfare of all beings.
  • To provide the students with quality education and teach them good conduct and thoughts and hence make them patriotic and religio
  • To combine the principles of spiritualism and worldly things to lead people towards Knowledge, Religion and God.
  • To impart education to instills discipline and character imparted by calm and pious devoted saints and make the child blossom
  • Children are educated with the emphasis on becoming polite, self-disciplined, devotee and obedient to parents through learning religious literature.
  • To propagate the principles of good character and education, Shri Swaminarayan wrote the Shikshapatri to make the human life more

“Intelligence Plus Character is the goal of true education”
