Message from the Chancellor

Dear Students,

I would like to express my appreciation for your interest in the Dev Sanskriti Vishawavidyalaya (DSVV).

Should you be accepted to attend, I believe it would result in a dramatic and auspicious change in the direction of your life, and after graduation, you would have every reason to believe that, as an important member of society, your contribution to the world’s cultural renaissance will be vital and with an identity all its own. The society at large is eager to welcome the inspired social servants who bear insignia of this university of excellence.

Unfortunately today, education is increasingly being seen as a way for students to increase their earning potential. I believe this development reflects a one-sided and incomplete understanding of the true purpose of education. The primary aim of fostering in the student a multi-dimensional personality equipped to face the challenges of practical life, and the cultivation of the hidden qualities and potentialities in the student, has been all but abandoned completely.

This is absolutely not the case at DSVV. Here the goal of applying the ancestral wisdom of India for the purpose of developing each student into a great and noble citizen, who is prepared to contribute and serve the society is our primary focus. In this regard, DSVV is a magnificent and unique creation. It is truly the manifestation of a divine plan of almighty God, executed through the Sage, Saint and Seer, Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya. Throughout his life, he was guided to pursue a vision of reviving the ancient Rishi traditions and to re-establish and uplift the current deteriorating state of Indian culture. DSVV is a crucial component of this divine plan.

Whether or not you decide to apply for admission to DSVV, allow me to say that if you can extract yourself from the attractions and illusions of the “earn and consume” mentality, it will be a step that bodes extremely well for both your future happiness and for the contributions to society that you will go on to make.

Please allow me to commend you for considering this path.

Dr. Pranav Pandya
Chancellor, Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya,
Head, All World Gayatri Parivar.
