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. It, therefore, becomes his bounded duty to give back to society what he receives from it. It will indeed be a wasted life if he cannot pay back this debt to society, albeit in little measure, during his lifetime. This can be done if man 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 made it our life’s mission to provide just one family with the basic necessities of Anna, Akshara and Arogya, food, education and health. But engaging one-self in social services is no mean task. It should not be indulged in for the sake of fame or fortune. Social service 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.

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 are taking the institution to mountainous height, for betterment of nation as a whole. I beseech Lord Kalabhyraveshwara Swamy and His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Padmabhushan Dr. Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji to bestow best possible 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 to rejoice. Today, children are born with multiple talents which needs to be nurtured by parents, teachers and society. In the school especially, these talents have to be identified and opportunities 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 staff, students all the best in working towards this noble goal.

Education is a liberating force, and our age is also a democratizing force, cutting across the barriers of caste, creed and class; smoothing out inequalities imposed by birth and other circumstances. At BGSIRS, we insist on a true International education which crosses all the boundaries of a mere academic curriculum. If fact, the all-round education offered in the classroom, the dormitories, the playground and the surrounding neighborhood would encapsulate a training to young people to be a true citizen of the new millennium. Certainly the young people from around the world learn to acknowledge their responsibilities towards others at BGSIRS. Life at BGSIRS would expose young pupil to a broad range of culture and belief, and help them as they approach adulthood to show tolerance and patience. The students of BGSIRS would not be of one pattern, it will be diverse in interest and versatility of thought. But they will have one thing in common; a shred energetic approach to life, and good habits which will serve them well in their lives. BGSIRS aims to provide an exciting all-round education at the first stage. This would be personally fulfilling and socially useful. Young people need to be excited about the world they live in.
The world is a complex and sometimes confusing place, but the fundamental aim of our School is that the students are given an opportunity to make good sense of the world and realize their place in it. This involves building up more than a body of knowledge; students need to have the skills and attitudes to be successful life-long learners. The education system, besides providing an all-round education intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically, also offers guidance in critical thinking, openness, and purposeful research. Students at BGSIRS would be given equal opportunities to develop their own talents and by being aware of the national and global issues, contribute to the healthy development of the needs of their own school campus and community.
At BGSIRS, every student would be cared for at all times. In addition, teachers would not only care about their subject area but would also consider the student’s ability to cope with the day-to-day situations. The system of caring would be based very much on the lines a family, where parents constantly look after their children and are worried about their needs. The system would cultivate in the community a respect for all nationalities and all cultures of all the students and the staff. The school ethos would include elements that promote integration and appreciation. The children at BGSIRS are encouraged to look beyond the walls of the classroom and develop a global perspective on life that has become the hallmark of National Education. BGSIRS would like to be a pioneer or a leader in Education that would constantly keep in touch with the development of education in imaginative, creative and positive ways to bring out the best from students of difference learning and performing abilities.
