This is not the past, but the present…

Where the soothing sounds of Upanishadic mantras
resonate divinity through the air...
Where timeless teachings of the scriptures
are revived and relived...
Where students are immersed in modern and ancient wisdom
in their journey towards comprehensive development...

The Aim of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanskrit Mahavidyalay:

The Mahavidyalay aims to present society with a generation of youth…
Who not only hold a degree, but have a creative intellect,
Who not only have talent, but possess character,
Who not only possess information, but also deep understanding,
Who are not only capable, but have the enthusiasm to match.
The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanskrit Mahavidyalay is situated in Sarangpur and was established and inaugurated in 2013, by world-renowned and universally respected guru Pramuk¬h Swami Maharaj and is currently nurtured under the guidance of Guru Mahant Swami Maharaj. The Mahavidyalay was designed to be more than just an institution of higher education. It is also a place that moulds the lives of students by fostering a values-centric environment.
In the Guru’s divine presence, the time spent during his periodic visits become lifelong memories for Mahavidyalay students. Through Mahant Swami Maharaj’s encouragement and personal care, they naturally advance along their academic journey. Through their commitment and his blessings, students are inspired to advance towards a brighter future.
