Propagating the vision of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the Guru Ki Kashi Akal University is the ideal center for education located in the heart of Talwandi Sabo, Punjab. Advanced technological facilities and modern infrastructure makes the Akal University the perfect education destination for students imparting value based education along with a safe & secure environment for all its students. With the blessings of Baba Iqbal Singh Ji and support of the Kalgidhar Society, Baru Sahib, the Akal University has been established as a center for State of the Art Education. With 5 colleges offering a diverse range of courses in Humanities, Science, Commerce, Religious Studies and Languages the aim of the university is to ensure a complete and comprehensive approach to instill the values of Sikhism and religious secularism through its courses. The divinity centre at the university will train scholars to translate Sri Guru Granth Sahib in different languages and carry the message of the Guru to the outside world in different languages to raise awareness about Sikhism in the world around us.
Our endeavour at Akal University is to develop in every student the ability to express himself/ herself in English. Good communication abilities are among the most important life skills critical to achieving success in any field. No matter how brilliant you may be, or how knowledgeable about a subject you are, if you can't get the words out in a compelling, convincing, or coherent way, your thoughts are of limited value. This is why teaching effective communication skills must serve as the cornerstone for any program preparing young people for the 21st century. At Akal University, English will not only be the medium of instruction but also the only means for all communications and at all levels.
Truth is higher than everything; but higher still is truthful living. -Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, p 62 Our endeavour at Akal University is to help the students to discriminate between the valuable and the superficial in life. To help develop the critical ability to distinguish between essence and form, or between what is of value and what is superficial, in life – this ability is to be developed not for a narrow area or field of study, but for everyday situations in life, covering the widest possible canvas. To help students develop sensitivity and awareness; leading to commitment and courage to act on their own belief. It is not sufficient to develop the ability to discriminate, it is also important to the able to act on such discrimination in a given situation.
One person (like the bartender) brings the intoxicant, another takes a cup from it; by drinking it he loses his power to think and acts as if mad; he is unable to distinguish the good from bad and is pushed away from the Master; by drinking it the Master is forgotten and one is punished in His court, Do not take such a drink if it is within your power. (SGGS, p 554). Punjab represents a sacred portion of our country. The rich history of this ancient land has given its people a sense of native pride. Punjab is a blessed region of India that once stood witness to countless victories and triumphs. Preserved by martyrs who gave their lives to sustain the people and culture, this land was once hallowed by saints. The state is a special place and is close to the heart of India. Once known for its life, unparalleled fertile land, joy, and vibrancy—Punjab used to set the example. But the Punjabi youth are tragically now turning their backs on their state’s legacy. As a result, the tornado of illegal drugs sweeping across the border from Pakistan and Afghanistan is sucking Punjab into an epidemic. The drug menace has intensified in Punjab over the last few years, and currently a large percentage of the Punjabi youth are severely addicted to drugs. Recognizing the drug addiction menace in Punjab Akal University will have zero tolerance for the use of drugs and alcohol. All necessary steps will be taken to keep environment at the campus drug free.
"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages." - Thomas A. Edison "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." -Albert Einstein Vegetarianism is an inalienable feature of a healthy lifestyle. A vegetarian diet reduces the risk for chronic degenerative diseases such as obesity, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and certain types of cancer including colon, breast, prostate, stomach, lung and esophageal cancer. Also, medical studies indicate that that a human being's body was not made to be carnivorous (for example; humans have no fangs or claws) and because our digestive system was not made to digest meat, a vegetarian diet is much easier and healthier for our bodies.
