Chaudhary Charan Singh University Meerut, Uttar Pradesh will include Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and yoga guru Ramdev as a part of their university curriculum.

According to the university officials, the syllabus will educate students about “ancient cultural heritage” and “architects of such rich culture”.

‘Hathyoga Ka Swaroop va Sadhna’ by Yogi Adityanath and ‘Yog Sadhna va Yog Chikitsa Rahasya’ by Baba Ramdev will be introduced in the syllabus of the first year, second semester undergraduate course of philosophy.

This subject can be opted by the students of other courses as well.

“The Board of Studies on philosophy has decided that the works of Yogi Adityanath and Ramdev would be included in the syllabus. The two books have been recommended by the state government and endorsed by the Board of Studies of the university”, Clarion quoted pro-vice-chancellor of the university, Prof Y. Vimla, as saying.

The decision by the university was taken after the recommendation from the state government to the University Grants Commission (UGC).

According to the syllabus “Study and practice of this course will provide a stressless and effortless life, expansion of consciousness, regulation of the nervous system, etc,” as the philosophy course recommended by the state government to the university.

As per the New Education Policy, the UGC has allowed state universities to decide 30 percent of the syllabus for each course. This 30 percent of the syllabus can include books related to the regional history of the state.

The two books have been added to the newly designed syllabus chosen from a list of seven suggested readings, the others being ‘Gheranda Samhita’, ‘Patanjali Yoga Sutra’, a book by Swami Satyanand Saraswati, and two by Paramhansa Yogananda.

Prof Vimla said, “The concept of the New Education Policy is that students must first be apprised of their ancient cultural heritage and taught about the architects of this heritage. For instance, when it comes to botany, we need to teach students about the ancient sages who developed Ayurveda and the contributors to its evolutionary process”, Clarion quoted.
