The Gujarat legislative assembly unanimously passed a resolution supporting the incorporation of teachings from the Bhagavad Gita into the state's school education curriculum for students in Classes 6 to 12. This move aims to impart cultural pride and values among students, aligning with the National Education Policy 2020's emphasis on connecting students with India's diverse knowledge traditions. Minister of State for Education Praful Pansheriya introduced the resolution, which received bipartisan support, with AAP and Congress eventually backing it. The state education department plans to integrate Bhagavad Gita principles into the curriculum from the next academic year, starting in June. The teachings will be integrated differently for various classes, with younger students encountering the Bhagavad Gita through stories and recitations, while older students will learn about it through their first-language textbooks. The decision follows an earlier government resolution mandating the introduction of Bhagavad Gita teachings for Classes 6 to 12, announced by former education minister Jitu Vaghani in March 2022. Despite some initial reservations, both parties ultimately supported the resolution, acknowledging the global significance of the Bhagavad Gita.
