Educational View of Dev Samaj
The fundamental object of the Dev Samaj is to promote a unique mission of founder Bhagwan DEVATMA i.e. propagation of truth, beauty and goodness in thought, speech and action among entire mankind. Bhagwan DEVATMA made women education and character building through education the chief planks of Dev Samaj’s contribution to social reform.
Dev Samaj as an epitome of moral and spiritual life, discharges two folded functions for new society to conserve old values by affording new scientific foundation for them and to discover new aspects by a scientific study of the natural laws of health of human soul. It contributes to the emotional development of the society.
Dev Samaj is a unique society and it believes in Deva Dharma. Deva Dharma is not only the unity, completeness and fulfilment of different religions, but also the future of religions. It helps a person in the ‘Know Thyself’ by enforcing him to see evil disposition of low loves and low hates and vikasa of altruistic or satwik feelings of love and service.
Founded in 1887, The society of Dev Samaj (Registered under the society Registration Act, 1860) has been in the service of education since 1899 when it started its first school in Moga, Punjab.
Late Shri. Hitabhilashi Sharma Ji and Late Smt. Swadesh Sharma Ji
The Great Temples of Learning like Dev Samaj Vidya Niketan Sr. Sec. School, Gurgaon are not built in a day and blessed are those who build them. Here we remember Late Smt. Swadesh Sharma Ji and Late Sh. Hitabhilashi Sharma Ji for their strenuous efforts, encouragement, inspiration and guidance.
Late Sh. Hitabhilashi Sharma Ji and Late Smt. Swadesh Sharma Ji dedicated themselves to the cause of education and pioneered to initiate exemplary institution where value based development of the children was their mission and vision.
The school flourished under their guidance. They led a very pious and inspirational life that was marked by dedication and studded with high moral values. Late Smt. Swadesh Sharma Ji was impressed by the life and teachings of Bhagwan Devatma – the founder of Dev Samaj. Rather than pursuing a materialistic career she chose to follow the noble religious path and dedicated her whole life for Dev Samaj Mission. As a life worker of Dev Samaj, she imbibed the teachings of her master in her life and became a torch bearer in all the initiative taken by Dev Samaj. Late Sh. Hitabilashi Sharma Ji believed in simple living and worked throughout his life tirelessly. He was always on the move to serve Dev Samaj Vidya Niketan with the best of his capabilities. “Saintly people do not live for themselves, they live for others”, such was Shri. Hitabilashi Sharma Ji. People like them who have served the humanity in such quiet and humble manner need to be revered and remembered for what they did and the legacies they have left behind for us.

"तन समर्पित, मन समर्पित और विद्यालय को ये जीवन समर्पित ।
आशीर्वाद मांगते हैं, देव गुरु से, यूहीं विद्यालय को करें ये जीवन समर्पित ॥"
भगवान देवात्मा की असीम कृपा और आप सबके विश्वास से जिस दिन से मैं इस संस्था से जुड़ी हूँ, तब से मेरा यही प्रयास रहा है कि मै अपने विद्यालय में सर्वागींण विकास के लिए उत्तम शिक्षा उपलब्ध करा सकूँ । निरंतर मेरा सर्वोपरि यही लक्ष्य है कि छात्रों में किताबी ज्ञान ही नहीं, ईमानदारी, उच्च चरित्र, भावनाओं का सम्मान करना भी हो ।
निसंदेह यही मेरा उद्देश्य है कि विद्यालय में ऐसे सामाजिक परिवेश का निर्माण हो, जिसमें विद्यार्थी का सर्वश्रेष्ठ व्यकित्त्व उभर कर सामने आये और वे अच्छे आदर्श स्थापित कर सकें ।
शिक्षक उस माली के समान है, जो एक बगीचे को भिन्न भिन्न रूप रंग के फूलों से सजाता है । वह प्रेरणा की फुआरों से बालक रुपी मन को सींचकर उनकी नींव को मजबूत करता है तथा उसके सर्वांगीण विकास के लिए उनका मार्ग प्रशस्त करता है |
"हर राह आसान हो, हर राह पर खुशियां हों ।
हर दिन खूबसूरत हो, मेरे विद्यालय के हर विद्यार्थी व शिक्षक का खुशियों से भरा पूरा जीवन हो ।"
Smt. Sharda Sharma - Principal, Dev Samaj Vidya Niketan
Life in contemporary times is based on the survival of the fittest. Each passing day throws up new challenges. Success has acquired a new meaning, a new dimension. Parents are hard pressed to ensure success for their children. But we at Dev Samaj view education differently. Our system of education stresses more on personality development based on caring, sharing and understanding. Our school is taking giant strides with each passing day bringing name, fame and recognition. We teach our children to be like the tree which keeps on bowling down further to the earth as it keeps on bearing more and more fruit. This is humility, which brings with it grace which is a cornerstone of our education.
Year after year, the vision of our Manager Mrs. Sangeeta Sharma has beckoned us to move forward consistently and steadfastly. Its under her able guidance that we, at Dev Samaj endeavor to provide the students with education which imparts not just academic excellence but inculcates moral values, the ability to take decision and a responsibility towards society.
We wish you all a very rewarding and successful experience at Dev Samaj Vidya Niketan Sr. Sec. School, Gurgaon.
