Welcome to Bodhi Vidyalaya
Bodhi Vidyalaya, a first of its kind located in the heart of suburban Mulund, is a space where children are provided a wholesome and balanced education rooted in values that not only preserve the cultural fabric of our diverse society but also involves a spiritual evolution of the self. Here, children use their head, heart and hands as tools for learning. Bodhi integrates the philosophies of Rudolf Steiner and Sri Aurobindo to ensure that learning remains an organic process.
Bodhi Vidyalaya is born out of the need to revive and inculcate the core values of gratitude and reverence towards self, the other and the environment in education. Two mothers, Mital and Bijal conscious and aware of the experiences they wanted to bring to their children and soon to as many others as possible, sought answers to difficult questions like, ‘How do we learn?, Why do we learn?, what roles does the environment or parents or educators play in the education of a child?, How are the values inculcated through education?...and many more. For this they trained themselves in different philosophies, studied various school models and found mentors to answer their questions. Their journey brought the insight that knowledge cannot be taught. It already exists in each individual.
As they deliberated, persevered and delved deeper into education, they reached out to others through various workshops for parents, educators and children. However, this wasn't enough. The only way spread their knowledge and build a like minded community that works together towards making education organic and value oriented would be to start a school. And this is how Bodhi Vidyalaya was initiated.
