Bhavan and its Objectives
The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan stands for the re-integration of Indian Culture and re-vitalization of Dharma in its three-fold form of Truth, Love and Beauty. SATHYAM, SHIVAM, SUNDARAM
Aims, Objectives and Philosophy
Kulapati Munshijia’s vision of education based on fundamental values is the aim & objective of all Bhavan’s institutions.
Ideal education should impart knowledge, shape the character, and mould the personality of the child; it should assist hi in imbibing and assimilating the social, moral, ethical, and spiritual values so necessary for the development of an attitude of service. Effective education should help in transforming the child into what our Shastras describe as Puranapurasha.
Purpose of Education
Education would fail ignominiously in its objective, if it manufactured only a robot and called him an economic man accenting the adjective economic and forgetting the substantive man. A university cannot afford to ignore the cultural aspects of education, whatever studies it specializes in. Science is a means, not an end, whereas culture is an end in itself. Even though you may ultimately become a scientist, a doctor, or an engineer, you must, while in college, absorb fundamental values which will make you a man of culture. An engineer has not merely to build bridges; he has to be a devoted husband, a kind of father, a friendly neighbor, a dutiful citizen, and a man true to himself. He will have trials and tribulations; his heart will fail him at times; he will then need the strength which true culture alone can give.
