The Vedic System
The Vedas, like any other scriptures, are eternal inspires. They inspire us to lead higher lives.

The Sandhya is recited on Thursdays and on Fridays the students participate in the Havan. They learn to chant OM, the Gayatri mantra with its meaning and how to meditate into themselves.

Our mission is to empower students and teachers with yoga-inspired exercises to promote lifetime wellness and so that students and teachers develop body-mind awareness and the ability to nurture their own well-being.

THE TEN PRINCIPLES OF THE ARYA SAMAJ

१. सब सत्यविद्या और जो पदार्थ विद्या से जाने जाते हैं, उन सबका आदि-मूल परमेश्वर हैं।

  1. The first (efficient) cause of all knowledge and all that is known through knowledge is Parameshvara.

२. ईश्वर सच्चिदानंदस्वरूप, निराकार, सर्व-शक्तिमान, न्यायकारी, दयालु, अजन्मा, अनन्त, निर्विकार, अनादि, अनुपम, सर्वाधार, सर्वेश्वर, सर्वव्यापक, सर्वान्तर्यामी, अजर, अमर, अभय, नित्य, पवित्र और सृष्टिकर्ता है| उसी की उपासना करने योग्य है।

  1. Ishvara is existent, intelligent and blissful. He is formless, omnipotent, just, merciful, unborn, endless, unchangeable, beginningless, unequalled the support of all, the master of all, omnipresent, emminent, unageing, immortal, fearless, eternal and holy, and the maker of all. He alone is worthy of being worshipped.

३. वेद सब सत्यविद्याओं की पुस्तक है। वेद का पढ़ाना – पढ़ाना और सुनना – सुनाना सब आर्यो का परम धर्म है।

  1. Vedas are the scriptures of all knowledge. It is the first duty of an Arya to study them, teach them, recite them, and hear them being recited.

४. सत्य के ग्रहण करने और असत्य के छोड़ने में सर्वदा उद्यत् रहना चाहिए।

  1. One should always be ready to accept the truth and give up untruth.

५. सब काम धर्मानुसार अर्थात् सत्य और असत्य को विचार करके करने चाहिए।

  1. One should do everything according to the dictates of Dharma, i.e. after due reflection over right and wrong.

६. सँसार का उपकार करना आर्य समाज का मुख्य उद्येश्य है, अर्थात् शारीरिक, आत्मिक और सामाजिक् उन्नति करना ।

  1. The primary object of the society is to do good to the whole world, i.e. to look after its physical, spiritual and social welfare.

८. अविद्या का नाश और विद्या कि वृद्धि करनि चाहिए।

  1. One should promote vidya (realization of subject and object) and dispel avidya (illusion).

९. प्रत्येक को अपनी ही उन्नति में सन्तुष्ट नहीं रहना चाहिए, अपितु किन्क सबकी उन्नती में  ही अपनी उन्नति समझनी चाहिए।

  1. One should not be content with one’s own welfare alone but should look after the welfare of all.

  1. One should inevitably follow the altruistic principles of promoting the welfare of society, but is free to follow the path of individual welfare.

Meal Time Prayers

Before starting eating, students should put their hands together and recite the following mantra with devotion. Their family members should join them. At the last word ‘Shantih’, all should bow their head.  Food should be accepted and eaten gracefully with gratitude.

“Family that prays together, eats together, stays together”.

ॐ अन्नपते अन्नस्य नो देह्यनमीवस्य शुष्मिणः,

प्र प्रदातारं तारिष उर्जं नो धेहि द्विपदे चतुष्पदे।

ॐ शांति: ! शांति: ! शांति: !! — यजुर्वेद 11.83

Om Annapate annasya no dehyanamivasya shushminah,

Pra pradataaram taarish urjam no dhehi dvipade chatushpade.

Om Shantih, Shantih, Shantih ! — Yajurveda 11.83

हे भगवान हे अन्नदाता! ऐसी कृपा करो की हर जीवनधारी को अच्छा बलवर्धक पोष्टिक आहार प्राप्त हो जो सबके लिए जीवनदर्शक साबित हो और सब सुखमय खुशहाल हों.
हम इस क्षण उन किसानों का ह्रदय से आभार प्रकट करते हैं जिनके अकथनीय निष्काम परिश्रम से प्राप्त इस अन्न से अपना पेट भर रहे हैं.
हम उन सब प्राणियों के आभारी हैं जिन्होंने अपने निष्काम सेवा भाव से कार्य करके इस अन्न को हमतक पहुँचाने में अपना अमूल्य योगदान दिया।

O Lord Giver of nourishment. Bless us all with the wealth of pure and life-giving food.

We remember with gratitude at this moment, the farmers who have toiled to bring us this food to our table. Spare them O Lord! from any hardship or unhappiness.

May the animals of the farmyard, who have worked by their side be given strength to carry on their selfless service, so that we may grow in strength.

The Gayatri Mantra

Recitation of the Gayatri mantra is preceded by oṃ (ॐ) and the formula bhūrbhuvaḥsvaḥ (भूर्भुवःस्वः), known as the mahāvyāhṛti (“great (mystical) utterance”).

 

ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः।

तत्सवितुर्वरेंयं भर्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि।

धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥

 

Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ.

संगीतमयशान्तिपाठ

शान्ति कीजिए, प्रभु त्रिभुवन में,
जल में, थल में और गगन में,
अन्तरिक्ष में, अग्नि पवन में,
औषधि, वनस्पति, वन उपवन में,
सकल विश्व के, जड़ चेतन में।

गुरुजन के उपदेश वचन मे,
वीरों के द्वारा हो रण मे,
धनिक जानो के होवे धन में,
कर्मयोगियों के कर्मण में

शान्ति राष्ट्र, निर्माण सृजन में,
नगर ग्राम में, और भवन में,
जीवमात्र के, तन में, मन में,
और जगत के, हो कण-कण में।

O Lord, Creator of the Universe, bless us all with the gift of peace
Peace be on Thy Earth, Thy waters, Thy sky, Thy eternal space
Peace be in fire, in wind, be it in all herbs, creepers, plants and trees
Peace be unto all.

May peace be the essence of the words of elders
Be it the clarion call of the brave in the battlefield
May peace reside in the wealth of the king
The toil of man be an endless search for peace.

May peace pervade the building of nations
Be it enshrined in every city, town and hamlet.
May every home be an abode of peace
Peace be unto all.
