Almost five decades back, Yug Rishi Pt. Shriram Sharma 'Acharya' dreamt of a Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya that would infuse new life in education system and produce saplings for Divine Era. India has had a tradition of Vishwavidyalayas that were supposed to mould better citizens for the country and the whole world. "New life was always infused in Vishwavidyalaya. New era was always carved in Vishwavidyalaya. Whenever, mankind was transformed or divine virtues were induced in personality it was done in the Vishwavidyalaya. But these Vishwavidyalaya's were not like present day Universities. The true knowledge was infused in the minds of adolescents. They were gifted with divine qualities. Healthy stout saplings of mankind were thus raised in these Vishwavidyalaya's, which produced renowned personalities, sagacious geniuses, outstanding men, and eminent citizens of global repute. Infact, the magnanimous men were always nurtured in the nursery of Vishwavidyalayas. Nalanda & Takshshila were of this kind. The establishment of a Vishwavidyalaya of this kind is my solemn dream which may impart education of ethical ways of life rooted in the divine origin of humanity. It may revive the divine culture founded by the angelic vision and spiritual acumen of the Vedic seers, sages and Rishis".
