Tagore’s Educational Philosophy in Modern India

Suresh Malviya


Rabindranath Tagore accepted that the point of education is self-acknowledgment. He himself was a writer and a holy person, who had, through his creative mind and understanding, understood the all-inclusive soul in himself and in nature. He accepted that this acknowledgment was the objective of education. Since the general soul is the foundation of our own spirit, man s point in life is to arrive at that general soul of which all individuals are parts. The advancement of nature is intentionally or unwittingly driving us towards this all-inclusive soul, a procedure that can be helped by education. Regardless of whether it isn’t helped, the advancement towards the general soul will proceed, yet then people will be denied of self- realization. It is along these lines obvious that Rabindranath educational philosophy is a subordinate of his general philosophy of life. He accepted that each individual is one who has possibilities of advancing towards the Super person, the widespread soul. His origination of the all-inclusive soul bore clear engraving of the Gita and Upanishad ways of thinking. The objective of the paper is to analyses the educational thoughts of Tagore, his basic conception of education and its process. The paper is primarily based on secondary sources like the Books, Journals and Articles etc. The method used is historic-analytic method. Tagore was a great champion of education for international understanding.
