Vice-Chancellor's Message



Welcome to Abhilashi University at Chail-Chowk, District Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, a venture in higher education by Abhilashi Educational Society. Situated in a serene  environment surrounded by Gohar and Balh valleys and nature's paradise of green lush fields, oak and pine forests make Abhilashi University an ideal institution to associate with. Abhilashi University is an institution which rears its students in their mission of literacy and education. 

University means center of higher education. It nurtures the individual's ability to interpret, to distinguish between right and wrong, to enhance the appetite for curiosity and to discover the answer to hidden unsolved problems. Education is manifestation of perfection already present in man. The main focus in learning should be to make the hidden ability of learner manifest. As Vivekananda said,what a man 'learns' is really what he 'discovers', by taking cover off the human soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge. According to Vedanta philosophy, knowledge is inherent in human being, like a spark in a piece of flint and all that is needed is the strike of suggestion to bring it out. Real education is that which enables one to stand on one's own legs. Education must be considered as a continuous and lifelong process. Teachers and designers of education system must always keep in mind the Vedanta idea that whatsoever good or bad impressions a mind carries, a human being is essentially pure and divine and repository of immense possibilities. Everyone should get equal opportunity to learn and grow irrespective of one's financial abilities. Discovery is the main focus of universities. Universities are to solve the unsolved issues, to answer the unanswered questions, to encourage the innovative and imaginative ideas, to nurture a state of mind that is flexible and alert and to educate the individuals about modesty and humanity. Abhilashi University is synonym with this.



We at Abhilashi University educate our students and prepare them for a life time of responsibility with dedication through creation of knowledge by learned and efficient faculty, well equipped laboratories and library. Abhilashi University is established with a vision to make quality higher education within reach to aspiring technocrats and to disseminate knowledge to them in their ability to be job providers instead of job seekers. I assure the young minds joining Abhilashi University that you will certainly achieve satisfaction in your academic pursuits to attain future endeavours. Academic environment is imperative to education of naïve technocrats to excel in their skills and Abhilashi University is a lighthouse, well-equipped to impart versatile training in disciplines to ensure maximum on-campus placements of its graduates. My best wishes to students & parents who are associated with Abhilashi University.
