Bhavan's Faith


Let me once more set forth the Bhavan's faith for the benefit of new students and members, for it is necessary that they should understand it clearly and imbibe its spirit.

 The Bhavan stands for the reintegration of Indian Culture.

 In a world falling to pieces under the impact of a moral and technological avalanche, it tries to hold fast to the fundamental values for which our culture stands- RITA, SATYA, YAGNA & TAPAS

 FAITH in GOD informs the Cosmic Order.

 TRUTH which is accord between mind, word and deed.

 DEDICATION which offers all movements of life as an offering to god.

 SUBLIMATION which purifies the body and mind and transmutes instincts, passions and emotions in to things beauty.

 This regardless of forms and doctrines, is Dharma, the three fold aspect of which are SATYAM, SHIVAM, SUNDARAM Truth, Love and Beauty.

 For these values our forefathers lived and died. So did Sri Ramakrishnan Paramahamsa, Swami Dayananda, Swami Vivekanada, Gandhiji and Sri Aurobindo among the moderns.

 These values are embedded in our national outlook.

 We command the respects of the world because of them.

 We can look forward to the future with confidence only because they have the vitality which gives the power to vindicate their validity even in this fear-and-avarice-ridden are of ours.

 We, the Bhavan's family, whether it is the smaller one or the larger one, must make every effort in restoring an awareness of these values in personal and collective life.
