Let me set forth The Bhavan’s aims and objectives for the benefit of new student and members, for it is necessary that they should understand it clearly and imbibe its spirit.
The Bhavan stands for the reintegration of Indian Culture.
In a world falling to pieces under the impact of an amoral technological avalanche, it tries to hold fast to the fundamental values for which our culture stands - Rita, Satya, Yajna and Tapas.
Faith in God who in-forms the Cosmic Order:
Dedication, which offers all movements of life as an offering to God;
Sublimation which purifies the body and mind and transmutes instincts, passions and emotions into things of beauty.
This. Regardless of forms and doctrines is Dharma, the three-fold aspects of which are Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram – Truth, Love and Beauty.
For these values our forefathers lived and dies. So did Shri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa, Swami Vivekananda, Gandhiji, and Shri Aurovindo, among the moderns.
They are embedded in our national outlook.
We command the respect of the world because of then.
We can look forward to the future with confidence only because they have the vitality which give the power to vindicate their validity even in this fear – and avarice – ridden age of ours.
We, The Bhavan’s family whether it is the smaller one or the larger one, must make even effort in restoring an awareness of this values in personal & collective life.
