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, Yagna and Tapas.
FAITH in God Who forms the Cosmic Order
TRUTH which is in accord with mind, word and deed
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.
It is for these values that our forefathers lived and died. So did Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Swami Dayananda, Swami Vivekananda, Gandhiji and Sri Aurobindo, among the moderns.
These values are embedded in our national outlook.
We command the respect of the world because of them.
We can look forward to the future with confidence only because, they have the vitality which gives 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 or the larger one, must make every effort in restoring these values in our personal and collective life.
