St. Vivekanand Millennium School believes inspiring students to become successful and responsible citizens. The curriculum is delivered through an innovative combination of classroom and activity-led learning. It is our mission to blend our strong cultural fundamentals of the Gurukul heritage and other traditional systems with advanced modern learning tools, thus providing a new direction in education. We not only believe in imparting mere education, but also indulge in spiritual learning.
Namaste is the integral part of our routine. The word Namaste is been originated from the Sanskrit work Namah means "I bow" and te means "to you" Namaste means "I bow to you" This tradition is been taken in our school to greet each other. At SVMS, our mornings start with chanting of Gayatri mantra, which is said to remove all obstacles in our path to increase wisdom and spiritual growth and development. After chanting of gayatri mantra, students come out of their classes for health run. Studies have shown the health benefits of runnings to be tremendously reducing the chance of common cold to cancer, which helps them to improve their fitness and stamina. It also increases bone density and considered to be best aerobic exercise for physical conditioning of the heart and lungs. Health run is followed by meditation with 'OM' gunjun.
Students are made to sit in meditation for concentrating the mind in a spiritual ideal, to be one with it and the thought process dissolving in the consciousness of it, which helps them to improve in three fields i.e. Pratyahara or withdrawl of the mind from the outer objects or attention to their memory, Dharana- patience and Dhyana i.e. concentration. Meditation helps to inculcate in students the power of concetration, which helps them to learn things faster and vividly.
At lunch break, the students chant Bhojan Mantra,"Om Brahmarpanam Brahavi-Brahmgano Brahmnahutam Brahov Ten Gantavayam Bramkaram Samadhina" which is recorded and run on School's System. According to Hindu way of life, food goes beyond just a means of body nourishment. It is also believed to influence our mental and spiritual development. This mantra gives the scientific explanation of the relation between food and energy.
At the end of the day, we have the silence period. After blow of "bigul", silence is observed to enable the students to reach out their inner self and thus they are able to detach from the material world and are able to find their true self.
