Rebuilding Takshashila in the 21st Century
Inauguration of Rishihood University

2000 years ago, India was the global seat of higher learning. Universities like Takshashila not just attracted learners from all over the world, but created some of the finest leadership and scholarship in human history, including leaders like Chanakya and Chandragupta, and knowledge systems like Ayurveda and Arthashastra. The hallmark of such education was the emphasis on achieving one’s full potential.

One century ago, Swami Vivekananda called this vision ‘rishihood’, the state of being a rishi. Today, we give a shape to that vision in the form of Rishihood University, an effort to rebuild Takshashila for the coming centuries. Please join us in reimagining education, rejuvenating the legacy of Takshashila, and rebuilding Bharat. 

We take this opportunity to invite you to the Inauguration Ceremony of Rishihood University in the esteemed presence of the Hon’ble Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu ji.
