As Bull suggests, the school education is designed in such a way that ultimately helps the kids to realize one or the other principles of education - personal liberty, democracy, equality of opportunity and economic growth (Bull, 2008). There is hardly any attempt to impart elements of spirituality to the children in a formal setup. In this paper we highlight the importance of spiritual education essentially from the Indian perspective and corroborated from the current literature from the western perspective. Through this engagement, we like to argue that spiritual education needs to be imparted through formal education system.  Keywords: spirituality, formal education, curriculum, Spirituality is considered as an important element of human life in promoting internal peace and social harmony. Many a thinkers, spiritual practitioners have emphasized the need of spiritual orientation amongst the humans because it leads to a harmonious life by giving people a meaning to their own existence and their existence in a society (Roger & Dantley, 2001). The present educational system in India is becoming mechanistic and concerned more with the machineries that can transmit the structures, contents and processes of knowledge rather than creating ideological situation that respect the cultural, religious and spiritual heritage of India. The purpose of education in ancient India was to attain three supreme values of life- Truth, Goodness and Beauty. These are like guiding lights of human life and can be achieved through spiritual and moral knowledge (Venkataiah, 2007). It is not only the classical understanding of education, but even the contemporary Indian thinkers like Tagore, Gandhi, Vivekananda, Aurobindo are talking about the importance of spirituality in human life. For these thinkers spirituality is an aspect of human life. Without spiritual knowledge human being cannot attain the highest goal. Rabindranath Tagore understands spirituality in terms of people‘s harmony in feeling and action with all other creatures of the world. Science gives us knowledge and  power, spirituality gives us joy which is the result of union with other. Highest goal in the life can be achieved through the harmonious relationship with other things. Mere intellectual knowledge cannot help people in achieving this end. Spirituality is necessary in maintaining a harmonious relationship among people. Spirituality gives perfectness to the human character. It helps to realize the inseparable relationship among the creatures in the world and leads to a peaceful living through harmony. There is an eternal spirit among all creatures and if people realize this truth then he can live peacefully and harmoniously in the world. He writes, ―When he meets the eternal spirit in all objects, then is he
