GURUKULAM

Location

The Sri Skandaguru Vidyalayam is located in the sacred town of Thirupparankundram, at the feet of Lord SUBRAMANYA. It is 5 km away from the temple city of Madurai.

The Course

The five-year-course teaches mainly the Veda-s, the Sivagama-s and the Thirumurai-s. It teaches also the Manuals of Rituals, Jyothisham, Yoga and Basic Sanskrit and English. All these are taught by scholars in the respective fields. Students also participate in physical exercises and games at free time.

The System of Education

The ancient educational system known as “gurukulam” is followed by the institution. The students live a very simple, disciplined and joyful life. The teaching method is Karna parampara which means ‘Oral tradition’. It equips the students to receive and memorize the subjects easily. Living in the vicinity of the Guruji moulds the life style of a student with moral, ethical, social, cultural and spiritual values. The students graduate as "Sivagama Bhaskara" after completion of the five-year-course. At present the course is offered to more than 130 students.
