Selected Opinions about the Bhavan's Activities
"Through its activities, publications and the educational institutions it runs, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has been doing impressive work to enable our people to understand their heritage. My good wishes."
- Smt. Indira Gandhi, Former Prime Minister of India
"The Bhavan has done useful work in India and in many countries throughout the world. I am glad that its U.S. Centre has succeeded in projecting different facets of India's Culture and civilization.
I send my best wishes for the continued success of the Bhavan."
- Shri Rajiv Gandhi, Former Prime Minister of India
"For more than five decades the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has ceaselessly been striving to spread the message of Indian Culture - the message of the oneness of human kind, of peace, creativity and mutually supportive action. The Bhavan serves as a bridge connecting diverse cultures, historical experiences and perspectives of the future. Universal values and ideals central to human societies the world over are promoted and safeguarded by the Bhavan's work."
- Dr. Shanker Dayal Sharma, Former President of India
"The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is doing a yeoman's service to the cause of education and you find that the value system it is trying to build is something any country, any society can be proud of."
- Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao, Former Prime Minister of India
"The Bhavan is a unique institution because its feet are firmly placed on the solid foundation of our rich heritage and culture, while its head has soared into the skies to embrace all that is new and modern. The Bhavan has spread its wing and flown into new areas of education. It is a valued institution across the country."
- Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minster of India
"Of the many institutions that were born in the ferment of India's struggle for Independence, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan occupies a unique place for its vision, activities and its continuing contribution to the realisation of the fundamental goods of the Freedom Movement" The Bhavan has also been unique in attracting men and women of exceptional calibre and character decade after decade since its inception in 1938. This speaks for the power of the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi which it had received at its birth and also for the farsightedness of its founder, the late Dr. K.M. Munshi.... It is only instruments like the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan which can guide the society along the desired path by radiating the light and wisdom of our ancient and modern seers. There can be no two opinions that the Bhavan has been in the forefront of transmitting the knowledge and wisdom of the great minds of India both within the country and through its branches abroad. In doing so, the Bhavan has truly lived up to its Rigvedic motto: Aa No Bhadraha Kratavo Yantu Vishwataha: Let Noble Thoughts Come To Us From Every Side. The Bhavan has blended all the spiritual and intellectual streams of India and the world - and for this, too, it deserves to be heartily commended. I join millions of my countrymen in wishing the very best for the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's noble endeavours in the coming decades."
- Atal Behari Vajpayee, Former Prime Minister of India
