Welcome to Gurukulam

||श्री गणेशाया नमः|| ||ओं महात्रिपुरासुन्दर्यै नमः||

The main pillar and architect of GURUKULAM, DOMBIVLI, as we see today, is our respected Guruji Shri K. S. Viswanathan (alias) Raju. Though he is employed in a leading Company in Thane, he wanted to create awareness among Hindus in general and  Brahmins in particular about Vedas and Vedic Chantings. In the year 2005, he started devoting a few hours after returning from his office and on Sundays, Holidays, etc., imparting the knowledge contained in the ancient Vedic texts to all those who yearned to learn the same, free of cost. Initially there were only a few students and the classes were held at the place of Shri N. G. Chudamani

But gradually the number of disciples started increasing and now this institution is known under the name and style “GURUKULAM, DOMBIVLI“ (A School for Vedic Studies). It is worth mentioning here that as of now, it is a "NO PROFIT NO LOSS" group; but certainly there are GAINS to Guruji and Shishyas as it is a known fact, a real and devoted teacher/guru feels that by imparting his knowledge to others, his knowledge is only enhanced – thus it is a GAIN for him and naturally his disciples also GAIN knowledge from the Guru.

It is an ancient system of Indian Education wherein the “SHISHYAS” (students) reside with the “GURU” or “RISHI” (teacher). It is an institution for the traditional study of Advaita Vedanta, Sanskrit, Astrology, Ayurveda, Yoga, etc. It is a holy place where students learn the knowledge imparted by the “GURU” or “RISHI”. The shishyas are trained using real life and practical solutions.  They study, play and eat together. As “GURUKULAM” Dombivli does not have resources and a place of its own, it is unable to follow this method.

GURUKULAM provides an opportunity to the residents in and around Dombivli to study profound spiritual knowledge of the Vedas, Upanishads, Suktas, Brahmasutras, Rudram, Chamakam, Devi mahatmyam, Sri Lalitha Sahasranamam, Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam etc.

The Gurukulam is raising many talented people, who are able to participate in many pujas, homams, divine functions etc
