Banasthali Vidyapith aims at the synthesis of spiritual
value of the East and scientific spirit of the West. The main thrust of all the activities
of the Banasthali Vidyapith is the development of a complete
personality. The institution firmly believes that the personality consists of
interdependent components, each being equally important requiring equal
attention and can only be developed through a wholesome education. The
‘Panchmukhi Shiksha’ which has evolved
from experimentation, attempts a balance among the five necessary aspects of education: Physical,
Practical, Aesthetic, Moral and Intellectual.
· Physical: Under physical education programme,
various activities like parade , shooting, riding, flying, girl guiding,
bulbul, swimming, yoga and various modern and traditional sports like kabbadi,
kho-kho, hockey, basket ball, badminton, long jump, high jump etc . are included. Students who have opted for a physical activity under the Five Fold Education programme compulsorily take a Fitness Assessment test.
Aesthetic : Students learn music and painting up to class v,. They can choose
either music (vocal or instrumental) or painting. Dance education is being
provided to the students of all levels.
· Practical : Under practical education sanganary
printing & dying, batique, bandhej, tailoring, embroidery, craft,
papermache etc. are included. Under domestic education, students are supposed
to perform cleaning and washing and collective Shramadan.
Moral : The aim of moral education is to
develop personality of the students, so as to cultivate in them the feeling of
respect for all religions. It is achieved by the means of weekly prayers, talks,
Veda, Geeta & Ramayana path etc. The common evening prayer and Udbodhen
program is unique.
Intellectual : Intellectual education is being given
to the students in order to avoid the relative aspects of modern education.
Natural and social sciences with languages and Maths are being taught with
sciences from the beginning . Education methods are adopted with the help of
projects related to social and natural environment.
Banasthali Vidyapith never believes in examination-based
education system. It gives emphasis on practical education.
