B.Sc. in Integral Psychology participants

“My experience in the college has been very good and satisfying. I am glad that I am sharing my views about this program and the college. The level of teaching is great and the method followed is not conventional. This program gives freedom to explore the world with a different perspective, which will surely make the student a better person. It is a platform where knowledge goes hand-in-hand with morals. The program focuses more on individual development. Many co-curricular activities such as Gita sessions are held. During these sessions, students not only recite shlokas, but also understand their meaning in context of psychology. I am privileged to be a part of this college.”

“The experience during the first year itself was very good. We have started working on our self, with the help of what we have leant till now. Gita sessions are also very effective and help us a lot in our development.”

—Aparna Gawande

“This program is the first of its kind and very brilliantly crafted. While designing it, the creators have thought of students at every point. I feel grateful to have got a chance to undertake this program as I have learnt and understood things, which I wouldn’t have known anywhere else. One of the best things are the Gita sessions, which we attend every Friday. Here we read some shlokas from Gita, which are related to psychology and their practical application.”

—Harsh Zope

“It’s been a great year in MITSVS till date. We all have seen a lot of changes taking place in ourselves through the B.Sc. in Integral Psychology program. I have personally progressed a lot. This program has lots to offer in the present moment as well as in terms of future career paths. We study Vedic as well as modern psychology, which no other school offers. Gita sessions are changing our perception for the better. It’s something I always have been looking for.”

SELF Workshop participants

“The workshop allowed us to look within our self. It helped in prioritizing values so that I can focus on my targets. I am also able to spend more time with my family. I have started listening carefully to others and have improved my patience. My students feel free to discuss their personal problems with me.”

—Priya Kale

“The workshop was totally activity-based and there was not a single dull moment. Taking ownership, inculcating empathy and living authentically is the key. I can now keep my emotions under control and use them more effectively. Students will benefit from this workshop in terms of better acceptance of self, self-awareness, managing successes and failures and becoming more resilient.”

—Sagar Vidwans

“I will now appreciate and enjoy small events which give joy and will keep an optimistic view towards life in general. I will take others’ perspective into consideration before giving feedback or taking any action.”

Participants of online certificate course – How to study Indic Shaastras?

“Although many benefits come to mind about the value of this course, I am listing 3 important lessons from that big list, viz. Persistence, Objectivity & Respectability, and Curiosity.”

—Sathya Atreyam

“I would like to appreciate and highlight the Samskrit-1 prerequisite course conducted by Tilaka Rao, which is as much interesting as the main course. Kudos to all the faculty and organizers.”

—Subrahmanyam

“Prof Varakhedi, through his apt examples was able to explain even the most complicated of topics in a simple manner. The topics discussed in the course have helped me look at some of the Shaastras I had already read, in a different light. This also helped me to remove certain misunderstandings that arose during my readings, earlier. I can now relate to many things, which I found to be illogical earlier.”

—Jayapradeep Jiothis

“This course is a must to come out of the colonial mindset. It helps to change our perspective. It enables us to get clarity, removes prejudices that we have about Indic knowledge and inspires us to take up further study. I thank all the organizers for all the hardship they went through to envision this.”
