Biography

Swami Sharad Puri is the founder of the Shivedale School in Haridwar, one of the best holistic educational institutions of the country. Ever since a young boy, he received training by Guru Mahamandaleshwar Santosh Puri Geeta Bharati, a renowned lady saint and scholar. In order to understand the plight of people and possible solutions for dispelling ignorance, he went on a pilgrimage to all the holy places in different parts of India. Swami Sharad Puriji’s passion for knowledge, inspired by the Divine within, opened a new but novel vision of serving the people through the education of young minds. He says “As education is the search for knowledge and the Vedas are aimed at the highest education of the Self (the Brahman or Absolute), both modern and Vedic education must be combined to train the young for the future of India and the world.” Swamiji not only believes in, but also puts into practice the dictum of vidya dan—charity of knowledge, as the greatest of all. A born problem-solver and an incarnation of patience, his life is totally dedicated to education and serving the poor.
