Sri Sri Ravishankar, the iconic spiritual guru and founder of the internationally acclaimed Art of Living spiritual lifestyle system, will personally inaugurate Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir school at Woodsville, Moshi (Pimpri-Chinchwad) on January 15, 2012.
The inauguration and ‘bhoomi pujan’ ceremony will take place at 2.30 PM on January 15 at the school’s venue in Woodsville, a residential township project at Moshi in PCMC. Anil Pharande, Vice President of CREDAI Pune Metro and Chairman of leading township developers Pharande Spaces, will also be present as Shri Shri Ravishankarji conducts the ceremonial blessing of the school and addresses his followers and the school’s staff.
“The arrival of SSRVM in Pune’s Pimpri Chinchwad area is a landmark event in the history of a city which is known as the Oxford of the East,” says Anil Pharande. ”We are indeed honoured that Guruji has selected Woodsville as the place in which to launch this unique school, which will be a blessing to parents and children.”
The renowned spiritual leader, a staunch supporter and advocate of sustainable living, has personally selected Woodsville as SSRVM’s venue on the basis of its ecologically friendly configuration. Woodsville is Pimpri-Chinchwad’s most talked-about self-sustaining residential township.
The SSRVM educational model is a proven process of self-learning that builds life skills and nurtures leadership. It is staffed by highly qualified teachers who receive special orientation and training at Sri Sri Teachers Training Academy. In the words of H.H. Sri Sri Ravishankar, “Every parent would like to have a child whose personality shines wherever the child goes. It is the personality that is appreciated everywhere. Such pleasing personality is the main aim of this education.”
The educational system developed by Sri Sri Ravishankar employs an innovative and compassionate system of learning which features a curriculum for all-round development of its young students. The school’s syllabus is customized to NCERT guidelines and includes Sanskrit, Yoga, Karate, Sports, Dance, Music and Arts, which helps the child to blossom in all aspects of life. SSRVM is an initiative of the Art of Living Foundation, which has centres in more than 150 countries and enjoys a special consultative status with the United Nations Economic & Social Council of United Nations.
