n was based on the preservation and propagation of Bharatiya Sanskriti (Indian culture) and Sanskrit, the mother of languages, the Akshaya patra: the inexhaustible reservoir. This unpretentious endeavour was backed by Kulapati Munshi's amazing pragmatism.
Over the years from being a modest Indological research institution, the Bhavan has steadily grown into a comprehensive, co-operative, apolitical, national movement with an international outlook. It seeks to inculcate a value-based life. The promotion of ethical and spiritual values in everything that it does.
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is the only comprehensive organisation of its kind in India and perhaps the only one in the world.
The Bhavan steadfastly adheres to the Vedic ideal:
"Let noble thoughts come to us from every side."
To Bhavan, Indian Culture is composite and comprehensive and includes the cultures of all religions and communities. It believes in the fusion and synthesis of the basic ideals and tenets of all faiths ... and an equal respect for all religions.
""Harmony of all faiths.
Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava."
