Selected Opinions about the Bhavan's Activities
"The Bhavan had set its lamp of auspiciousness. It has not left any avenue of programme unexploited to the maximum in serving our culture. The impossible has been made possible; the incredible has been made credible ...... I will only pray for greater services by the Bhavan in the future years to come."
- Swami Chinmayananda, President, Sandeepany Sadhanalaya and Bhavan's Hon. Member
"As Patron-in-Chief of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, U.K. Centre, I was glad to be present when the British Prime Minister officially opened the new building of our Institute of Indian Culture in London on 19th July 1978. It was a most thrilling and memorable occasion and there is no doubt that the Institute is already playing an important part in community relations in this country. I know how thrilled my dear friend Gandhiji would have been with all the Bhavan is doing to create greater understanding."
- Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma
"I need hardly say how much I admire the work which this great organisation is doing. I send all good wishes for the future."
- Rt. Hon'ble Mr. Harold Mac Millan, Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Patron and Bhavan's Hon. Member
"..... It has been true to India's age-old ideal that "the World is one Family." In promoting racial harmony and understanding, it has given a stern rebuke to those who have sought to foment racial discord. In its role as the propagator of the values of India's immemorial culture, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has acquitted itself creditably."
- Lord James Callaghan, Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Patron of Bhavan's U.K. Centre and Bhavan's Hon. Member
"Years ago we were delighted and greatly honoured when you decided to establish here in London the first cultural centre outside India. Today you are taking a splendid further initiative... I would echo the phrase you have used "The Majesty of the Moral Law."
- Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom (while inaugurating the Bhavan's New Home at West Kensington, London, on 19th July, 1978)
"The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan was started at a time when Indians were gradually getting wasternised and our thinking and approach were moving to that direction. India must not lose its soul. The Bhavan is spreading Indian Culture, philosophy and spirituality in India and abroad and helping India to make its humble contribution to the world for peace and for better international cultural relations."
- Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, Former Prime Minister of India
"I was a witness to the founding of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. It was conceived in the year 1937. The Bhavan has developed into a unique institution for which I can see no parallel. I wish the Bhavan all success, continuous success."
- Shri Morarji Desai, Former Prime Minister of India Bhavan's Hon. Member
