Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Sanatan Dharma Vidyalaya, Azad Nagar, Kanpur is based upon the principles of the Great patriot, intellect,educationist and inspiration- Swami Vivekanand.
Education is the system of refining man's life experiences. Each experience of life is called education. In fact "the whole life of a man is education and education is life". Whatever behavior that widens the knowledge of a man, deepens his insight refines his reactions, excites his passions and actions or other ways, is called education. The aim of education is the balanced and complete development of man. Education is the all round development of man's inner powers, mind and body.
Brahma created this universe with a wish of 'unity in diversity.' He created 'Deities', who, after reaching the peak of religious and spiritual development, indulged in luxuries. Then he gave birth to 'Demons' who indulged in destruction. Realizing his incompletion of creation, he started creating something unique and exclusive. In this way, he gave birth to a creature which was more powerful than Deities and Demons. He was the 'Man'. This man was thoughtful, innovative and learned. He enlarged his family and formed a society. He acknowledged the meaning of Vedic Mantra- "ऋते ज्ञानान्न मुक्ति:" means there is no salvation without knowledge. Thus, to acquire knowledge he went to Rishikuls and Gurukuls which are called school s or colleges today.
The Acharya, Guru or teacher has been the center point of the Rishikuls and Gurukuls or school and colleges of present time. Acharyas or teachers are the main source of invoking high ideals in them. He is the one who affects the students and the atmosphere of school with his conduct. He is the first step in making the school atmosphere ideal. He is not only the teacher but friend, well-wisher, philosopher and guide of the students. The student decides his way of life by following the path showed by his teachers. That is why a teacher is called the 'Nation Builders'. According to Dr. P.S. Kothari of Kothari commission – “The destiny of India is being built in the class-rooms of its schools and the creator and conductor is the 'Teacher'.” A worthy teacher is a Torch Bearer under guidance of which the students come out of the school being dutiful and responsible citizens.
Our vision aligns with shifts in the global economy, society, and environment, which animates our mission and our values:
- Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the status quo will affect what and how we teach and the intellectual ambitions of the school itself.
- Social engagement should orient students' academic experiences to help them become critically engaged citizens, dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.
- Possessing strong value system to remain good human beings.
History is witness that schools have produced the students according to the need of time. Nobody was born great in the history but they became great being in contact of their teachers and by following their great ideals. There is a glorious chain of this beautiful relationship of teacher and taught in the history. Acharya Vashishtha, Vishwamitra and Dron who attained the designation of Brahmarshi and who were able to establish 'Ramrajya' and fought against 'Adharma' and Injustice. The heavenly personality ' Krishna' was gifted to the society by Acharya Sandeepan. We are committed to provide a stable, caring and supportive family-like environment, where students can receive mature guidance through daily interaction with able faculty and become accountable, productive, and ethical citizens with the skills to think innovatively, reason critically, communicate effectively, and respect all peoples .
