Ekalavya, due to his lower stature compared to a Pandava prince like Arjuna did not have the privilege of being under Dronacharya’s constant tutelage. Undeterred by Dronacharya’s inability to accept his as a student in his school, according to the epic, Ekalavya sought Drona’s blessing and walked into the forest, built a clay statue of Dronacharya, worshipped it as his guru, and practised archery diligently.
Later on when chance would allow Ekalavya and Arjuna to meet, even by Arjuna’s own admittance, he felt that Ekalavya was superior to him in archery.
In our Ekalavya course, we haven't left it to just divine inspiration as it were in the epic. Our Ekalavya courses have the same course, content, reading and practice material as in our Arjuna cohort classes. Ekalavyas also have access to online discussion forums where they can pose questions to our Dronacharyas and other Ekalavyas like themselves. But these courses do demand that like the hero Ekalavya, these learners take self responsibility for their own learning.
