*INDIAN INSTITUTE OF INSPIRATIONAL LEADERSHIP FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT (ILRD)*
(Affiliated to Karnataka University, Dharwad)
Guruji Shri Rishi Prabhakarji has created and designed this degree course with the aim to blend best of both Eastern & Western worlds – by integrating ethnology and methodology with the Indian cultural ethos, along with development of traditional, spirituality-based value system.
ILRD’s objective is to bring prosperity in harmony with ecology and the person, ushering a new era in Indian villages. This is a 3 years integrated course.
The course of study is interdisciplinary in nature. Faculty from various departments, eminent social workers and environment experts are invited to train the students in specific areas.
Today’s modern, educated youth can imbibe this knowledge and take up the leadership for rural development as their life-work for uplifting Indian villages.
At present many villages are affected by the Greed-Grab-Consume-Exhaust approach for short gains for a few, as followed in the urban industrial culture. The new era will be Need based – Resource conserve – Regenerate and yet enjoy through giving, so that everyone prospers in the long run.
ILRD emphasizes on developing entrepreneurial skills in individuals, enabling to generate hundreds of jobs around them wherever they are in the world, empowering them to be job creators rather than job seekers.
