India is well known for its highly cultural traditions across the globe. In ancient days the educational system of India was called “śrauta-paramparā” which is also known as “guru-śiṣya-paramparā”. The term "Upaniṣad" derives from the Sanskrit words "upa" (near), "ni" (down) and "ṣad" (to sit) — so it means "sitting down near" a spiritual teacher to receive teachings. To continue this rich cultural tradition the NMM is planning to open ‘Gurukula’ wings in 25 selected Manuscript Resource Centres (MRCs) across the country through which three scholars shall be appointed to edit and transliterate regional unpublished manuscripts under the supervision of a Guru in each Gurukula.
