Gurukula system of education focuses more on shaping the character. The integral development of the student rather than only the intellectual development is emphasized by the Acharyas. The character is shaped when philosophy is practiced and the practice becomes the expression of philosophy.
As Acharya always says ‘it is not about what you have learned, but it is about who you are after what you have learned’. It is all about the practice of the philosophy. It is the inner exploration that takes place during the stay for seven long years.
