Parama Poojya Jagadguru Padmabhushana Sri Sri Sri Dr.Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji
Man cannot live in isolation, however great he may be. He depends on society in every walk of life. Then it will become his bounded duty to give back to society from what he has received. It will indeed be a wasted life if he cannot pay back his debt to society, albeit in little measure, during his lifetime. This can be achieved only if he is constantly tuned to the wants of the less privileged. Today the world is boiling cauldron of social ills like illiteracy, ill health and poverty, compounded by natural disasters like earthquakes and floods. If only each one of us takes up cudgels against just one issue and make it our business to alleviate the problem. How wonderful it would be if each one of us has our mission to provide just one family with the basic necessities of Anna, Akshara and Arogya i.e., food, education and health. Social service should not be indulged in for the sake of fame or fortune. But it must be done with the spirit of doing ones duty, and not as dispensing a favour. One should indeed feel blessed that he has been given an opportunity to serve the needy.
Sri Sri Sri Dr.Nirmalanandanatha Mahaswamiji President of Adichunchanagiri Shikshana Trust
Education is a very important tool for everyone to succeed in life and get something different. Knowledge gained throughout the education period enables each and every individual to develop confidence in them. It opens various doors to the opportunities of achieving better prospects in life, and hence promotes career growth. Education is the act of learning things around us. It helps us to easily understand and deal with any problem and balance throughout the whole life in every aspect. It is the first and foremost right of every human being. Without education, we are incomplete and our lives are useless. It helps us to set a goal and go ahead by working on that throughout the life. Education improves our knowledge, skill, confidence level and personality. It empowers us intellectually to interact with others in our life. It brings maturity and teaches us to live in society with changing environment. It is the way to social development, economic growth and technological development. Education is an effort of the senior people to transfer their knowledge to the younger members of society. It is thus an institution, which plays a vital role in integrating an individual with his/her society and in maintaining the preservation of culture. It is an essential prerequisite of modernization. It enables people to know the world beyond their own surroundings and transforms them to become humanist in outlook and world view. School is the center, where children would learn to serve the society. Teachers are like deities inside the temple. Never in the past, mere infrastructure made institution’s great. The strength of any institution is its teachers. They are the real builders of the system. Hence, the responsibility of teachers along with the Principal is quite significant. Promoting the values in the life and ethics in the work is very important. With this value and understanding, we hope our teachers of BGS International Residential School, Nithyanandanagar, Bengaluru will take the institution to mountainous height, for betterment of the nation as a whole. I beseech Lord Kalabhyraveshwara Swamy and His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Padmabhushan Dr. Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji to bestow his choisest blessings upon one and all.
Sri Sri Dr.Prakashanatha Swamiji Managing Director, BGS Group of Institutions
The BGS International Residential School was established in the year 1997. Over the last two decades the school has made rapid strides in various fields from academics, co-curricular to sports. This remarkable progress is a matter of rejoice. Today, children are born with multiple talents which need to be nurtured by parents, teachers and society. In the school especially, these talents have to be identified, fine-tuned and opportunities to be given to bring out the best in them. Children should also be given an opportunity to achieve all round development which can be channelized later for the service of society. Reading and writing alone don’t make a complete personality. The nation needs children with proper education and good character to serve humanity with dignity, honor and pride. I wish the members of staff, students all the best in working towards this noble goal.

The Time Is Always Right To Do What Is Right – Martin Luther King. The greatest gift you can give anyone is your time because when you are giving your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.
It is time to open the doors and remove all barriers to allow stress free learning, time to learn what is relevant, time to connect tender minds to the diversity of culture, time to build characters appropriate to the global platform and above all, time to make individuals responsible for the environment they live in.
Education that is often practised today, lays a lot of emphasis on the understanding and recall of content. In the process, taking ownership of actions and creating solutions for varied problems, invariably takes a back seat. Educational institutions need to anchor the responsibility of creating an environment to think beyond and ponder over possibilities of exploring deep application of concepts. Socrates, the philosopher once said, “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.” When a child learns to think, he actually learns to wonder. And ‘wonder’ is the beginning of ‘wisdom’.
A monument of learning must uphold the spirit of questioning, which allows young minds to accept or reject any school of thought. It is proven that when the freedom is given to choose, a child develops the courage to state his opinion freely which bestows self esteem in the personality. Learning, in its stages should encompass decision making, problem solving, effective communication, distinction between right and wrong and thereby social responsibility.
The four strong pillars of BGS International Residential School –
- The Highly Motivated Team – Teamwork is the key to the success of any organisation. However good the infrastructure, it is the sincerity and dedication of teachers who make successful students. A leader is as good as her team.
- Student Teacher Rapport – The teachers provide an environment conducive to the learning of students without any inhibitions. The school is a home away from home in the real sense of the phrase due to the bond between the teachers and students.
- Support of Parents – Our parent fraternity is highly supportive of all our endeavours towards the teaching learning process of their ward. Their valuable feedback and suggestions is solicited and worked upon in the best possible manner at all times.
- Dynamic Management – The strong and experienced Management is a matter of pride for all of us in the esteemed organisation. The proactive attitude and long term vision is the wind in our sails. Under such able guidance, the institution has reached great levels of excellence!
