What Bhavan Believes

The Bhavan firmly believes that revitalizing ancient values and reintegrating them to suit the changing needs of modern times alone will give people the strength to assimilate whatever is good in the new, without being swept away from their traditional moorings.

The Bhavan believes that there are elements in all cultures which transcends all barriers and knits people together. Its ideal is: Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam: "The world is One Family." Its motto is Aa no bhadraah kratavo yantu vishwatah: "Let noble thoughts come to us from every side."

In furtherance of its aim of carrying India's message to the world over, the Bhavan set up Centers in London (U.K.), New York (U.S.A.), Lisbon (Portugal) and Durban (South Africa). Plans are afoot to start Centres in Geneva, Switzerland, Singapore and Tokyo.

The main purpose of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is to provide a modern bridge to span the past, the present and the future, built on the strong foundation of the fundamental values of life.
