Five Fundamentals of Educations


Means Space. It represents Freedom and Silence. This element infuses peace and tranquillity in the atmosphere where the child remains calm, composed, relaxed and happy. A serene ambience is instrumental in creating confidence and joy and serves as an important part of the overall growth of a student.


A peaceful and happy child bonds easily with others. The Vayu or Air element offers the base for connecting and touching others’ heart and soul through love. Children enrich themselves with lots of friends and loving family around them. Expressing love, compassion, respect and concern for nature and people around them, helps the child to be joyful and enthusiastic leading to effortless learning.

Art, Craft & Life skills


Agni or Fire element represents energy and alertness. Enthusiasm, curiosity and a sense of purpose instils leadership and entrepreneurial qualities amongst the young minds. Children learn to create opportunities for growth for one and all.


Jal means water which represents Taste for Excellence. Rishi Gurukulam inspires children to be active contenders, encouraging the child to give his 100 percent in whatever he does, add value wherever he goes and appreciate the beauty all around him.


Prithvi means the earth element which is symbolic of action and physical work. It represents Seva Bhav (sense of service). Being a down-to-earth individual and serving everyone irrespective of the background of people is the highest value inculcated at Rishi Gurukulam.

Saee was quite happy in the regular school. Since we came to Katarkhadak, she has discovered the joy she did not know before. This is a freedom based joy. She gets a lot of time to play with friends of all ages. She has developed beautiful bonding with all the children in the school and all the teachers. It’s like one big family. She has become more aware of her responsibilities and takes care of her and family chores effortlessly. Apart from academics, she is enjoying exploring music, dance, drama, gymnastics, pottery, farming etc without any performance pressure just for play. At Rishi Gurukulam every day is special as I see her crossing her limits every day.

We feel so fortunate that we took the decision to move to Rishi Gurukulam last year, both Kali and Shri have done tremendous progress on various fronts in last 1 & 1/2 years. They have not just excelled academically and in sports but have learnt a lot in the area of arts (music, drama, dance, singing, pottery and a whole lot more). They also got opportunity to participate in various interschool competitions and won medals at individual levels and team level. Thanks to the surroundings of Gurukulam kids stay close to the nature. As each class has limited students, each kid gets an individual attention and peer to peer learning is part of the system. Also thanks to special focus on spiritual teachings, kids have begun their journey on inward understanding and learn the real purpose of life. The well balanced daily routine and yearly plan helps kids excel in various areas and boost their confidence.

Rishi Gurukulam is truly a magical place for complete development of a child, and for parents it’s nothing short of an extended family.

Hello !

So, putting my both daughters in the gurukulam has been one of the best decision of ours. Never thought it would have been this easy to put both our daughters in gurukulam, but yes the Gurukulam sirs and didis made us more confident about everything.

We have observed tremendous changes in Nisarga as well as in Sakshi.

We have to say that the type of education in Gurukul is really high, because by the time Nisarga is in her Engineering course, she is way ahead than others.

This school also helps new students adapt to a whole different learning and requirement system, always ready to help the child overcome the hardships of the learning process as well as create conditions that help improve oneself, enables the students to participate not only in academics, but activities like Sports, Music, Dance, Drama and so on.

We parents were always kept precisely informed about our child’s accomplishments. And that’s why without any doubts we also brought our younger daughter Sakshi to join this Gurukul.
Our 11 year old daughter loved this school from the very first day, her words were ” Aaie and baba, it’s so much fun here. I feel like at home”. We think this is a great compliment from a child’s lips !

Sakshi has shown a huge shift in maturity, interest in learning various skills in just a few months.

Both Nisarga and Sakshi have developed educationally and in their own bold personalities. We are proud of their confident natures, their enthusiasm for all things, their new ideas and with their positive attitudes. We totally believe it is the combination of Gurukul and Kids that has worked so well together to help make both our daughters all rounded.

We can also tell you that we are happy with the Gurukul, it’s employees and the education they have provided to our kids.

Thank-you again the whole Gurukul team for the great time that our daughters have had and for preparing them so well for the upcoming challenges in their lives.
