I am associated with JJK Gurukulam right from 2003.
As suggested by his spiritual guru, late Swami Dayananda Saraswati, JJK Gurukulam was started way back in 2003 by Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati in a building donated by one of the disciples of Swami Dayananda. The aim of the Gurukulam is to give education and shelter to the students belonging to the economically poor section of the society. Admission for classes 5 to plus 2 is being given. Deserving students are identified and admitted. The ambience of the Gurukulam is very pleasing. Nice accommodation and healthy vegetarian food are given to the students. The students are admitted in the nearby Govt. school. The uniforms, fees etc are provided by the Gurukulam. Students found weak in any subject are given tuition. For the health care of the students a tie up arrangement is made with a local hospital. Extracurricular activities of the students are also taken care of. Sanskrit and yoga are also taught at the Gurukulam. I am glad to note that some of the students of the Gurukulam could get decent jobs. In my opinion JJK Gurukulam is one of the best gurukulams in Trivandrum as it is well equipped and run efficiently. I wish the Gurukulam all success in its endeavours.
