SRILA PRABHUPADA INTERNATIONAL GURUKUL

(Free Boarding School cum Orphanage)

HKFFL Trust runs a school at Udhampur by the name SRILA PRABHUPADA INTERNATIONAL GURUKUL

The Gurukul was started in the year 2005 at Udhampur under the name “SRILA PRABHUPADA INTERNATIONAL GURUKUL”, for primary classes. Its management committee was headed by H.H. Navayogendra Swami Ji Maharaj. Since then, the gurukul has been running in the most energetic, hard working and disciplined manner for the rural as well as urban generation.

To fulfil the desire of Srila Prabhupada and to alleviate the deteriorating condition of education for poor children in society, Swami Ji started an ambitious project of providing free education along with free boarding and lodging to the poor and needy ones, at Srila Prabhupada Ashram Udhampur. Soon the number of students joining this school increased. Feeling the need of a much better administrative control system, Swami Ji decided to set up a proper management committee and named the institution as SRILA PRABHUPADA INTERNATIONAL GURUKUL (Free boarding school). It is His Holiness strong ambition to make this Institution a role model for the society in providing quality education to the poor and needy ones. His desire is to provide some really good character and responsible persons through this Institution, who can do something good and noticeable for the society.

 Our Motto: 

“Nishkam Bhakti”. It is said that Knowledge should neither be sold nor should it be bought. Otherwise it becomes business. A dedicated student should submissively approach his teacher and render him service. In return the teacher will give him knowledge, without the desire of gaining anything in return. That is the ideal student-teacher relationship. Here at SPIG we are trying to revive this ancient tradition. Our volunteers render selfless service. Students study here and they do not have to pay any fees. SPIG is a free boarding school. Besides this, all the other needs of the students are also fulfilled by the Trust – books, stationary, uniform and meals are provided, besides day and night lodging.

Why SPIG:

“They will develop into perfect citizens – moral, honest, hard working, law abiding, clean and faithful to home and Country, like that. That is the unmatched success of our Krishna consciousness schooling system.” – Srila Prabhupada.

The Need of SPIG:

Today’s modern education system focuses exclusively on developing a child’s capability in his ability to earn his livelihood more and more competitively. The importance of moral values is not emphasized. The tutors themselves lack the moral values in their lives. Consequently, they fail to inculcate social and Spiritual values in their students. Lack of human values is resulting in immoral activities, violence and corruption. The professionals today are leading a highly stressful life. They have no time to think of the higher principles of living. On the other hand, those who have a Spiritual inclination seek a simpler life, based on the principle of “Simple living and high thinking.”
