Relevance of Swami Vivekananda's views in the 21st century's education


Dr. Md Afsar Ali

The main focus of our education is human resource development. Emphasis is only on Cognitive domain, which stores only some factual information. Thus, the learners fail to perceive and to form clear conception. Education should be a balance of the three major dimensions viz. cognitive, affective and psychomotor of human development. The ultimate aim of education can’t be achieved unless social reform, based on cultivation of spirituality is achieved. Thus, character, efficiency and humanism should be the aim of all education. The teacher should be a ‘Tyagi’ i.e., a selfless devotee to the cause of humanity and the Gurukul system should be the methodology of education, where the learner will be able to follow the teacher in his/her practical aspect of life instead of only observing the theoretical, polished side of teacher’s life demonstrated purposefully before the others.

The aim of women education should be to make women strong, fear-less, and conscious of their chastity and dignity. Swami Vivekananda advocated for mass education as an essential condition for real progress. Ideal education can only eliminate all social conflicts and establish peace and tranquillity a pre-requisite for any development.
