Vishwa Hindu Parishad's first University, christened as Ashok Singhal Ved Vigyan Evam Praudyogikee Vishwavidyalaya, will begin operations from its Gurugram campus next academic year.
The institution would aim to draw heavily from the ancient Vedic method of teaching, people associated with the institution have said.
Apart from a confluence of modern and Vedic curriculum, the university also aims to recreate Vedic era ambience of teaching.
To recreate Vedic ambience some of the classes will be conducted under the trees to give the feel of the Vedic era.
"The campus will also resonate with Vedic hymns. Upanishads and extracts of 'Gita' shall be broadcast throughout the campus morning and evening through public address system," stated a senior functionary in the know of the things.
A 'Vedic tower' will also be erected on the campus and each Veda and allied literature will have its separate floor with an audio-visual studio, sources said.
There would be a Surabhi Sadan (cow shelter), temple, meditation hall and Yajna Shala, they said.
The university is being constructed in a total area of 39.68 acres of land and it will be developed in multiple phases, the sources said.
"The objective is to pave the way to re-establish Bharat as 'Vishwaguru' and create a common platform for modern scientists, technologists and traditional Vedic Pandits to generate a new and comprehensive stream of knowledge of Bharat," the sources added.<br style="font-varian-Your data has been truncated
