Prayer and Pledge



A Note

The College prayer is an universal prayer without reference to any deity and its chanting initiates the students into the spirit of true religion. 'May our learning be illumnative', wishes the college prayer, and it incorporates Swami Vivekananda's definition of education as perfection - 'Lead me from darkness to light' entreats the prayer. Swami Vivekananda's equivalent of education is 'assimilation', for, education is not mere acumulation of knowledge but it is absorption into the body politic so that it may enlighten the working of the mind. Information, knowledge and wisdom are steps of the ascending stair of education.
