The inspiration of this project came from when I visited Baru Sahib, HP, India in 1988. What I saw there was unique and transforming experience to me personally. Young children being given education which was a blend of modern scientific curriculum and spiritual training i. e. Value – Based Education. Two Charity Organizations namely, ” The Kalgidhar Trust and The Kalgidhar Society ” established this Spiritual Education Center called VALLEY OF DIVINE PEACE.
From five students and one room Akal Academy ( 1986 ) this Mission has mushroomed into 130 Akal Academies ( spread over seven states of North India ) and two fully accredited universities with a total student strength of 60,000 plus. The graduates of these institutions have excelled not only in academics, but also have high moral values with compassion and love for Fellow Man and sense of service to humanity. They are trained to be catalysts for spreading Guru Nanak’s message of Universal Brotherhood of Man towards BRINGING PERMANENT PEACE IN THE WORLD.
Inspired and motivated with this concept of education, I came back to USA and started Nonprofit Corporation namely, The Kalgidhar Trust (US) in 1992 to pursue the same objectives as above and instill that spirit of love and service to youngsters and population at large of Sikh Community in USA as well as other seekers of Truth. This organization was also granted 501 (C) ( 3 ) status in 1993. and it has been carrying its mission diligently ever since its inception.
After providing service to the Sikh Community and other Seekers of Truth for more than 20 years in North America vis-a-vis student exchange programs, spiritual and cultural tours, summer camps, seminars, lecture series, divine music concerts, etc. last year the Management decided to move this Mission to the next level and Establish University, namely ” ETERNAL GLOBAL UNIVERSITY ” under New Mexico state laws as nonprofit corporation and acquired tax exempt status from IRS.
The university then developed expanded curriculum suitable for Distance Education Mode, enabling it to serve much larger audience in US, Canada and around the globe. Eternal Global University has also established an extensive
Library of books, journals, CDs, DVDs, Teaching Material, pertaining to courses being offered relative to Gurmat, Divine Music, Sikh History, Sikh Philosophy, Sikh Culture, Punjabi Language and other languages of Holy Scriptures and books pertaining to other major religions of the world. This collection is probably one of the largest private collection and will stand in good stead towards university’s Mission.
Eternal Global University has the following Schools / Colleges:
* The School for Guru Granth Sahib Studies
* The School for Divine Music and Spirituality
* The School for Comparative Religious Studies
* The School for Sikh Ministries and Management
* The School for Pastoral Care / Counseling
* The School for Value-Based, Sikh Youth Education.
These Schools will offer Certification, Master of Divinity, Doctor of Divinity degree courses starting January 2016, initially via Distance Education Mode. For more information visit our website: www.eternalglohaluniversity.education
The Gurmat, Sikh Culture and Punjabi for children and the youth would be a complimentary service to the Sikh Community Worldwide. The Eternal Global University will have highly qualified faculty from renowned universities around the world. IT has academic collaborations with Eternal University, Baru Sahib and Akal University – Guru Kashi, Talwandi Sabo (Punjab).
Eternal Global University is established as public charity organization as 501 ( C ) ( 3 ) corporation with tax exempt status from IRS. The costs of running these courses will hardly cover the revenue generated from its academic activities, The university is primarily established as a community service.
