Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan
Founded on November 7, 1938, on the auspicious Kartik Sud Purnima, Samvat 1995, nearly a decade before the advent of Independence, with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi and co-operation and support of several distinguished stalwarts of India's freedom movement, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has grown, from small beginnings, into a comprehensive all-India intellectual, cultural and educational movement. It is totally apolitical.
Its founder, Kulapati Dr. K.M. Munshi, looked upon the Bhavan as an 'Adventure in Faith', a faith in India's past, present and future. It is also a faith in India's people who have a rich and unbroken cultural heritage. Bhavan is ceaselessly striving to carry forward India's ageless message of Faith, Self-discipline and Dedication, through its educational centres located all over the country.
The Bhavan believes that there are elements in all cultures which transcend all barriers and knits people together. Its ideal is: 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'- "The World Is One Family." Its motto is "An No Bhadrah Kratavo Yantu Vishvatah" (Rigveda 1-89-1)': "Let noble thoughts come to us from every side". During the last eight decades and more of its existence, the Bhavan has blossomed into an ever-growing, voluntary, apolitical national movement with an international outlook, devoted to life, literature and culture.
An 'Institution of National Eminence', notified by Government of India, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has about 127 centresin India and abroad. It has over 375 educational institutions including Management and Engineering. MPBIM is a proud Associate of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.
