Gujarat Govt Introduces Supplementary School Textbook On ‘Bhagavad Gita’

| Updated: December 23, 2023 20:07

The Gujarat government has launched a supplementary textbook on the ‘Bhagavad Gita’ for classes 6 to 8 from the next academic year to foster a connection between students and India’s cultural heritage.

Minister of State for Education, Praful Pansheriya, said the State Education Department has decided to include the spiritual principles and values from the ‘Shrimad Bhagavad Gita.’ “This decision aligns with the principles of the National Education Policy introduced by the Union government three years ago,” he added.

Expressing gratitude to Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel for this decision, the Gujarat Education Minister emphasised that through this academic move, students would develop a sense of pride and a stronger connection to India’s rich, diverse, ancient culture and knowledge traditions as conveyed through the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.

He also highlighted that the supplementary textbook, based on the revered scripture, would instill moral values among students. He mentioned that this textbook, the first part intended for classes 6 to 8, would soon be distributed to schools nationwide. Two additional parts for students of classes 9 to 12 are also in the works.

Pansheriya said, “This decision, taken under the ‘National Education Policy 2020’ under the guidance of Prime Minister @narendramodi ji, will play an important role in improving values among students.”

In March 2022, the Gujarat government had announced in the state Assembly that the Bhagavad Gita would become a part of the school syllabus for classes 6 to 12 throughout the state.

This decision aimed to align with the NEP 2020, which emphasises introducing both modern and ancient culture, traditions and knowledge systems to help students develop a sense of pride.
