Talk:Educational Systems and Institutions

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

The indigenous ideal of education has always been to treat it as a sacred process. That process activated the individuals inner growth, which could only be achieved by means of constant and close contact between the pupil and the teacher where the teacher's personal touch and constant vigilance counted the most in the pupil's education. Education was taken in its literal and true sense to cultivate and develop the latent capacities, potentialities and the personality of the pupil. It was therefore treated as a process of scientific development and not as a mere mechanical process operating on the basis of collective drill and training.
