- Shri C. Rajagopalachari, First Indian Governor General of India and Bhavan's Founder Member
"The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has been doing excellent work all these years in getting our generation back to its roots. In the noise and intensity of modern life the youth are wandering bewildered.

The record of Bhavan's achievement spreading over the last 42 years speaks volumes about fulfilment of this objective. It has grown into a movement with diverse activities and its roots have struck deep into the soil, like a banyan tree, spreading its influence ever wider and wider ......
The Bhavan's main objective of cultural reintegration of the Indian people in perfect synchronization with the continuously evolving patterns of knowledge and understanding should not only be preserved but also propagated throughout the world."
