India is one of the most educationally advanced countries in the world, where spirituality and science established its essence over education since- aeons. Based on the principle of logic and experimentation, the founding pillars of education relied on proof and practice. This amalgamation of aspects to come up with a form of education is Vedic Science which since its inception personified the true meaning of spiritual education. When one speaks about Vedic education, there are three underlying pillars which give a true sense of how everything functions in the universe - Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology.
Yoga or the Yogic Science looks into the aspect of developing a thoughtful mind that allows unbiased perception of truth to enter the mind without refracting from its actual meaning. By learning to control one's own body to the forces of nature, individuals can have a better understanding of subatomic and supergalactic matters of the universe. Through a clear understanding of 'Yogic Sciences, one can also have a clear understanding of one's self along with the universe. Comprising of various practices such as asana, pran vipassana, and meditation among others, one can control all physical, metaphysical, and cosmic aspects that send our mind, senses, and consciousness to various unexplored corners of the universe.
While it is important for everyone to explore the spiritual corners of the universe, one must also seek contentment by imbibing well-being to fellow human beings and nature as a whole. Vedic sciences ensure that a perfect harmony is balanced between the body, mind, soul and the universe. Ayurveda shows us how we can find well-being all around us by understanding and preserving the intricacies of nature. Through Ayurveda, we can also understand the forces of nature and how they influence the consciousness of our mind and the world around us.
The conscious universe is governed by various stars, planets, and other heavenly bodies. Vedic Astrology helps us understand the correlation between these heavenly bodies and our own physical and mental ones, which together decide the destiny of the universe as a whole. Through Vedic Astrology, one can understand the influence and consequences that are channelled through sun, moon, and planets of the solar system. While astrology has no defined scientific explanation, one must open their minds to understand concepts that go beyond the realms of time, space, and physics.
Considering these three facets along with numerous other aspects that are prevalent in Vedic science education, individuals of the present age can consider it to be one of the most unique yet relevant forms of education.
