Need:

The greatness of a Nation is reflected by the richness of its culture. India has been admired the world over for its rich Culture, Traditions & Knowledge. A situation has arisen wherein our own children and youth are missing the opportunity to become aware of the depth and greatness of our Culture. What was naturally available to an earlier generation has now become rare, nor are such courses part of the syllabus in contemporary education system.

Concept:

With a view to filling this void and enabling youngsters to get introduced to different wonderful facets of our culture a treasure trove, Shankaracharya Swamigals of Shri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam HH Jagadguru Pujyashri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamigal and HH Jagadguru Pujyashri Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamigal have directed that short-term vocational training courses should be offered in various parts of our Country.

Under the auspices of Sri Chandrasekharapuram Cultural Training Centre, Kancheepuram, short-term vocational introductory courses have been formulated under the following categories. These courses will go a long way in instilling pride in us about our ancient Shastras & appreciating different arts.
