Officials from Chandigarh University with ISKCON Chandigarh leadership.

Evolve Club, the Youth Educational arm of ISKCON Chandigarh, has partnered with Chandigarh University to start a Value Added Course called “Life Lessons from Bhagavad Gita” beginning this month.

“We have signed a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Chandigarh University for this value-added course that will have interactive sessions, workshops, and field activities with students based on the Bhagavad-gita,” said Naamprema Das, Temple Co-president, ISKCON Chandigarh. The course will include different aspects and challenges of youths and how to overcome them, inculcating moral values and developing a positive outlook in life.

In an official announcement, the University’s director, Dr. Ashita Chadha, stated, “This course aims to delve into the timeless wisdom and profound insights offered by the Bhagavad-gita, a sacred scripture revered for its philosophical depth and practical teachings. Through interactive sessions and discussions, participants will explore essential life lessons that are relevant across various facets of existence related to management, leadership, team building, and more.”

“The main inspiration behind the signing of this agreement was to rescue the students from different bad habits, thereby inculcating sound values in them based on the teachings of Bhagavad-gita,” said Naamprema Das. 

The key devotees involved were Akrura Nandan Das, Shastra Chakshu Das, Radharaman Dev Das, and Madanrupa Das. According to Naamprema Das, the vision is to become the most sought-after course at the university, aiming to reach all 35,000 students.

The signing of this MoU is evidence of the wonderful preaching services of Evolve Club, the Youth Educational arm of ISKCON Chandigarh. Naamprema Das concluded, “We want to be more youth-centric and constantly update the curriculum so that it remains appealing to the students. Readers can explore such training programs, especially for children and youths in school and colleges; otherwise, destructive habits are very prevalent nowadays.”
