Ashram resumes classes after three years

Myagdi, April 30

The Shaligram Gandaki Veda Bidhya Ashram has resumed classes after remaining closed for the last three years.

The Ashram established 50 years ago shut down in 2013 owing to the paucity of students who were attracted more towards learning English language.

With the beginning of the new academic year in 2016, the school resumed its classes with a new curriculum that includes both Sanskrit and English subjects.

The Ashram, which runs largely under the fund collected from the offerings the devotees offer at Galeshwor temple in Beni Municipality 9, provides free hostel facility, uniform and meal for the students, said Chairman of Galeshwor Shivalaya Area Development Trust Chairman Rudra Bahadur KC.

Six students from Myagdi, Kaski and Mugu have already been admitted to the Ashram in the new academic year. The Ashram plans to enrol a total of 15 students.

Of the total of 800 marks, Sanskrit and English collectively carry 500 marks. Other subjects taught at the Ashram are Mathematics and Nepali, KC elaborated.
