While welcoming you to our university I take this opportunity to define education as I have conceptualized and practised over last 5 decades. Education is to “Know Thyself”. It is a process to discover oneself for actualizing the innate potentiality. I am convinced that each one of us is in the mould of godliness and it is for us to transform this potentiality in to actuality.
The process that we have evolved in the University in keeping with the philosophy of our first chancellor his holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is summed by me in five letters KSUPG meaning thereby Knowledge, Skill, Understanding (of the situation ,of the people ,of the social system), Peace based on inner poise manifested in outer behavior and Gentlemanly Conduct. These five enable the individual to transform himself into a wisdom worker. Thus the education that we impart in our university makes the individual useful to himself first, then to the family, then to the s society, then to the country and finally to the entire world. All this is founded on the concept of creative intelligence.
