Ashirvada Sabha on Sunday

GURUVAYUR: Amritabharathi Vidyapeedom, an open university and associate institute of Balagokulam which imparts cultural education, will conduct its ‘Ashirvada Sabha’ here on Sunday.

The Vidyapeedom, with its headquarters at Edappally, Kochi, and with a secondary unit in New Delhi, conducts courses on Indian culture and related subjects at different parts of the state and Delhi.

The primary course is Prabodhini, followed by Sandeepani and Bharthi. The courses would begin from April. This year, more than 5000 students had attended the examination held at 96 centres on Deepavali day.

The convocation ceremony of those who had completed the course would be held at the Municipal Town Hall here, said Balagokulam state president N. Hareendran Master at a media meet here on Wednesday.

The medium of instruction for the courses is English and the second language is Sanskrit. Any individual who is able to read and write Malayalam can be enrolled for the courses.

The registration fee for Prabodhini is Rs 20, for sandeepani Rs 30 and the fee for bharathi is Rs 50. The course material is issued free of cost and there is no separate exam fees.

Even though Amritabharathi Vidyapeedom is associated with various schools in imparting cultural education including Amrita Vidyalayas, it was not a part of Amritanandamayi Madom, Hareendran said.

The kulapathy of the Vidyapeedom is R Vasudevan Potti who took charge after the demise of Sanskrit scholar Narayana Pisharody.

Vasthu Acharyan Kanippayyoor Krishnan Namboothiripad will inaugurate the Ashirvada Sabha to be presided over by G Gangadharan Nair.
