Sadhana Vidyalaya Annual Day School Function - 2015


Sadhana Vidyalaya, a day school for rural children celebrated its 11th Annual Day School function on 23rd December 2015 (Wednesday) with great enthusiasm and vigor. 

Every child has a unique quality inside and Sadhana Vidyalaya goes that extra mile so as to bring out that hidden talent in them. Celebrating this school day function involving all the classes of Sadhana Vidyalaya right from L.KG. till Standard X was one such step. The students being from rural village, these stage performances really helped the children to remove stage fear and also bringing confidence in them. 

The vision of the school which is to revive the ancient educational model of Gurukula system, in which students and teachers stay together and establish a personal relationship outside the academic zone as well, was very much evident on the day as both the students as well as teachers united together for variety of songs and dance performances. 

The theme for the annual day function was ‘Folk’ and the teachers along with the choreographers and students worked very hard to put up a great show. The result was fruitful with scintillating & sparkling performance of the children from various classes. The parents were very excited and proud of their children for their performances during the function.  The function also had prize distribution for various students for their academic performance and teachers & support staff of Sadhana Vidyalaya were also honored during the function. 

Block Education Officer (BEO) of Chennapatna District, Mr. Mallikaarjun was the chief guest and spoke very high about Sadhana Vidyalaya and its founders Guruji Pattabhiram & Jyothi ji. In his speech during the prize distributions honoring various students, mentioned that Sadhana Vidyalaya with its unique Holistic Education System for the rural children is the best school in the district providing Modern Education blended with traditional culture, scenic environment & moral values. He also appreciated school administration in giving best facilities to the rural children inspite of various challenges in setting up such infrastructure in the rural village.

He also awarded the first SSLC Batch 2014-15 Sadhana Vidyalaya students who have all passed out in flying colors.

Jyothi ji in her vote of thanks shared her experience of meeting a former student of Sadhana Sangama Institution in a park while she was having her morning Walk at Minneapolis, US. She felt immense joy to know that the student is now working in a reputed company as a software engineer. During the course of their talk, the student had thanked his teachers & masters at Sadhana Sangama, for imparting him the culture & moral values along with the modern education because of which he felt he could be a good human being and add some value to the society he belongs. Jyothi Ji also remembered how Guruji Pattabhiram, taking Yoga & Samaj Seva as Mission of his life, unmindful of Engineer-Career has devoted his entire life with a vision to create happy, healthy harmonious society through family values and holistic living principles imparted right at the young budding age along with the much required Modern Education. She finally concluded by stating that every student who gets quality education at Sadhana Vidyalaya, should work towards that vision by becoming a good citizen with moral values and help the society to make it a better place to live. 

Guruji Pattabhiram who attended the entire function inspite of his health issues, gave a brief talk starting with thanking Block Education Officer Mr.Mallikaarjun for greeting the function. He later added that for any Educational institutions to run smoothly and achieve its vision & mission, it needs able support from the students, their parents & school teachers & support staff. In that way, he said, Sadhana Vidyalaya is highly blessed in receiving all three along with able assistance that is provided by the philanthropist continuously in running the school for the rural children. He appreciated the parents from rural village in encouraging their kids in sending them to school for Education. Guruji then mentioned how with able support from the parents & philanthropist, the school could develop over the years with excellent infrastructure including new school building, solar lights, Quality kitchen facilities, Toilet facilities, library, Yoga & the Auditorium Hall. He shared his dream in providing even better infrastructure & facilities in the coming years and sought the much required humble support from all. He ended the speech by blessing all the school children and wished them all the best for their education. 

The annual function ended with the vote of thanks by School Administration & Academic Head Masters by thanking the teachers, support staff and Students for putting up a great show.

Winter Camp 2015

Dear Sadhakas,

Blessings from the Masters of the Himalayan Tradition! 

I am extremely happy for all the generous inquiries about my health and thank you for the support that you are providing in furtherance of the cause. This is not only encouraging for my health but has instilled in me an enthusiasm to meet you all. But, as per medical advice, I am not supposed to strain my body by travelling and conducting public programmes at least for a year. Therefore, Jyothi & I came up with the idea of an annual event Winter Camp 2015 at our Ashram over the period December 20 (from 4.00 pm) to 26 (till 12 noon). This will provide me with an opportunity to meet you all. Together we can spend some quality time doing Sadhana.

I plan to take two Sessions in a day. Sessions by Mrs. Jyothi, Mr. Srinivas Murthy, Mr. Sudheendra and other prominent guest speakers also form part of the Winter Camp. Jyothi will be taking two sessions in a day where the first session will be on Tantrik approach to Tatwa Shuddhi & the second session would be on Bahiryaga – Practical approach in Tantra. There will be separate sessions on Yogasana, Pranayama and Meditation as well.

I am sure you will also be excited to be a part of the Winter Camp 2015, as I am, and hence, this advance intimation.
Hope to meet you and your family soon.

Guruji Pattabhiram & Jyothi

Sadhana Vidyalaya School Update

Dear Friends,

Sadhana Vidyalaya has been evolving from a humble beginning to be a school that delivers quality education with a vision and purpose. We have established several unique infrastructure facilities in alignment with that vision and purpose. We would like to share some of the infrastructural developments that have taken place in Sadhana Vidyalaya recently.

- We have completed the construction of 4 new classrooms marking the completion of the larger school building. 

-  A new dedicated multi-purpose play ground with a walking trail is nearing completion.

- Environment friendly, water-less urinals and toilets separate for boys and girls are to be made operational soon.

- Creation of an audio-visual room is underway to make the learning interesting and engaging.

Many more activities are ongoing to make Sadhana Vidyalaya a leading school in the area in line with our vision of offering contemporary education blended with spiritual values. Some of the work in progress pictures are below for your view:

Friends, Sadhana Vidyalaya also reached a milestone when it delivered 100% passing results with its first batch of 10th standard(grade) students. The school received accolades in local community and media for this accomplishment thus raising the popularity of the school in surrounding villages and towns. This success would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the school staff and above all the continued overwhelming support from our Sadhakas. 

Thank you all

Let's hear from our school - Sadhana Vidyalaya school update


NTPCL Visit to our Ashram:

Chairman and Managing Director of NTPC Ltd Shri Arup Roy Choudhary visited our School on 17.07.2015. He was accompanied by his wife Smt. Sharmila and some senior members of his team. NTPC Ltd, thru their CSR [Corporate Social Responsibility] has supported the school with donations for the construction of 4 classroom in our new building and also for setting up Solar Plant for the street lights. He was very happy to see the four class rooms that are now fully functional. A small program was also organized by Sadhana Vidyalaya School Management to welcome Shri Choudhary. Below are some of the pics taken during the day:

Motivating the teachers and Children:

a. Mrs Karandikar asked teachers to involve children of all classes from 4th Std to 9th Std to organize an exhibition. Class Teacher of 6th Std, Miss Sukanya took the challenge and organized the exhibition in her class room without taking support from any other teacher and involved 30 children spanning over 4th to 9th Std. This not only gave her the satisfaction of accomplishing a task single-handed but also motivated other teachers to come forward with proposals for several activities. Children enjoyed the exhibition and are now eager to do something creative.

b. Shri Kiran, a young entrepreneur who has worked in the field of organic farming, representing an NGO called School Gardenia has involved children in a project where he guides them in farming of Organic Vegetables. It was proposed to setup 20 beds but the work got disrupted by heavy rains. Children are locally guided by Shri Dhanush Narsimhmurthy and have four vegetable beds in place. Out of these four the first one has started giving results with spinach growing rapidly. The idea behind this project is to act as a nucleating agent that will encourage the mostly village children of the school to start vegetable farming in their fields.

c. Poultry farming has been started; this activity will introduce children to another vocation. It is hoped that children will learn from the experiment being conducted by Shri Dhanush N. and profitably start their own poultry farm in their village.

3. Panch-Kosh based learning system is being implemented in the school. The program is being introduced in small steps so that teachers and children can assimilate the ideas with ease and can whole-heartedly practice the steps. The first step of the program has three parts: Primary School children are taught shlokas as before but they are now encouraged to participate in singing and dancing also. Children from Middle- and High School are taught different Pranayamas and Asanas and encouraged to participate in sports. Teachers are given exposure to the Panch Kosha System and taught Pranayama. To realize this plan we have identified first period and dedicated it to this project. Primary School children are handled by Primary School teachers guided by Shri Santosh, Middle and High School children are guided by Smt. Shailaja K and Smt Kavitha N.Teachers are guided by Shri Laxman K. Everyone is enjoying the project.

Thanks all again for your continuous support & love. Hoping to see you soon with next update on our School. Till then, Vande Guruparamparam

- Shri Laxman Karandikar
