Culture can be defined as “the set of attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors shared by a group of people, communicated from one generation to the next.”
Cultural Heritage is an expression of the ways of living developed by a community and passed on from generation to generation, including customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values. Today, we consider the tangible heritage inextricably bound up with the intangible heritage.
DAVIM imbibes Vedic culture which teaches us to show gratitude to God for bliss of life and channelize everyday life activities.
Arya Samaj ("Noble Society") is a monotheistic reform movement that promotes values and practices based on the belief in the infallible authority of the Vedas. The samaj was founded by the Swamy Dayanand Saraswati on 10 April 1875. Members of Arya Samaj believe in one God rejecting the worship of idols. The Vedic culture occupies the most prominent place in Indian history and its impact is widely prevalent on modern India.
Hawan, also called Yajna, is a Vedic ritual
in which people provide herbal sacrifices to the holy fire along with chanting of mantras. Science behind Hawan
is that the fire destroys the offering and has a purifying effect on the devotee and the environment. The chanting of mantras and offering to fire create a revitalizing and rejuvenating effect for both, the body and the mind.
Hawan is regular activity performed in the premises of the Institution, where all staff members and students sit together to take blessings from the almighty.
