MITK Tagline Definition

These two statements from Taitireeya Upanishad summarize the entire teachings of all the scriptures in all religions. These are the parting advice given during the Vedic times by the enlightened masters in their Gurukulas to their beloved disciples.

True education inspires us to lead a virtuous life, to serve, to love and to sacrifice. With such education the individual is transformed, the family is strengthened, and the nation is resurrected. This alone can lead to peace and harmony in the world.

Hence educational institutions have a major role to play in molding the character of the individual and thus creating a better world.
