DAV philosophy is that in the process of moulding our children, we not only accept the best that the western education has to offer but also integrate it with the basic values of our ancient cultural heritage. We have set a trend to harmonize the school ambience with the ‘hawan1 or Vajya’. The efforts are towards making Yajya1 an integral part so as to generate a pious and pure way of living.
By doing hawans, we rejuvenate the chastity of the atmosphere. The recitation of the ved mantras help us to recuperate from all the hurries and worries of life. Listening to the sermons of great yogis and purohits help us to grow into compassionate human beings. Thus, we realize the importance of a saying which goes like this: “Be nice to all human beings, you are still one of them.”
