Selected Opinions about the Bhavan's Activities
"The word' Dharma' has no equivalent in English.
It is an entirely Indian concept comprising innumerable virtues like charity, justice, fairness, honesty, one's duty, righteous conduct, straightforward behaviour and others. The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, has been during the last sixty years, propagating 'Dharma' among people irrespective of Region, Caste and Creed. It has spread the message throughout our country through its Kendras and Schools and has carried the message to materially advanced countries like Europe and North America.
Its extensive publications of ancient scriptures combining with it modern computer education free for the weaker sections of the society makes the Institution unique and unparalleled.
"One can hardly find words of adequate expression in the whole library of English literature to acknowledge the invaluable contribution to humanity that Kulapati K.M. Munshi has made by founding such a unique institution."
- R. Venkataraman, Former President of India
"Dr. K.M. Munshi was a great scholar, a practical idealist and a visionary and if the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has sustained itself for 60 years and has grown from strength to strength during this period, it is because of the wisdom and imagination behind this institution. Of course, he had great successors who have sustained this institution with equal wisdom and imagination. The Bhavan has made a crucial contribution to the advancement, in the younger generation, of education and to the cultivation, in the younger generation, of ethical and spiritual values of our civilisation."
- K.R. Narayanan, Former President of India
"The Bhavan has served Indian Culture with ability and perseverance and has made truly remarkable progress in many aspects of Indian Culture.
The Bhavan's past record gives assurance that this progress will continue in the future also and the Bhavan will create fresh records in the service of India's culture. A very fine institution which deserves every encouragement and support."
- Shri Jawaharlal Nehru, Former Prime Minister of India and Bhavan's Founder Member
"The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has to its credit achievements which older institutions may well be proud of.
May this institution become the nursery of torchbearers of a composite civilization, taking just pride in all that is best in the past, imbibing all that is noble in the present, shedding light and glory wherever they go and moulding the life and destiny of a great nation."
- Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Former Dy. Prime Minister of India and Bhavan's Founder Member
"The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is a unique institution. I am fully aware of the excellent services the Bhavan has rendered to the people of India and to the world within a short period. Any amount of praise will be inadequate for it. I pray that the Bhavan should keep on progressing and should continue its services to culture and learning as also to the country and the world."
- Loknayak Shri Jayaprakash Narayan, Bhavan's Hon. Member
