Making Value-Based Education- Valuable
With a strong foothold in school education, the Kalgidhar Society took the next step and established universities to provide higher education to children so that they chart their professional journeys. The Society has two universities under higher education, namely, Eternal University, Baru Sahib and Akal University, Talwandi Sabo.
Creating Future Through Education, Trainings & Ethics
The objectives of the university are to disseminate advance knowledge, wisdom and understanding, and to offer education of the highest standards through teaching, research, training and extension programs.
The great visionary of 20th century (Sant Attar Singh ji) had a vision that modern scientific education alone will not serve the humanity well, until and unless it is amalgamated with Braham Vidya (Spiritual Education)
‘Sanskar Nirman’ is the ‘Mantra’ which the founding fathers had proposed to be the foundation on which the educational edifice of this institution was to rest. This women’s university is ensconced in the captivating Divine Baru Valley with deep woods and fresh water springs making the ambience conducive for spiritual rejuvenation. The campus, with its beautiful diversity of students from all over the country, provides ample opportunity to young girls to express themselves uninhibitedly and evolve into outstanding human beings who have nerves of steel and at the same time possess unlimited patience, forbearance, tolerance and love for the entire humanity.
