About Us

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan was founded by K.M.Munshi with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi in 1938 when the country was engrossed in the struggle for freedom. While country’s freedom was the top national priority, serious thinking had started on National Reconstruction and Rejuvenation that was to follow the independence. Under the guidance of enlightened thinkers and visionaries like Shri.C. Rajagopalachari, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Dr.S. Radhakrishnan, Pandit Nehru, Sardazr Patel and others the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan aimed to revitalize the ancient values and reintegrate them with the changing times

Under the guidance of enlightened thinkers and visionaries like Shri.C. Rajagopalachari, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Dr.S. Radhakrishnan, Pandit Nehru, Sardazr Patel and others the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan aimed to revitalize the ancient values and reintegrate them with the changing times
During the last 75 years, the Bhavan has been steadfastly endeavouring to hold fast to the fundamental values of life and from a humble beginning , it has grown into a national movement, voluntary, ever-growing, apolitical and solely devoted to life, literature and culture. To-day, the Bhavan has come to be recognized as a symbol of the intellectual, educational, cultural, ethical and social values of India.
The Bhavan functions through 90 Kendras spread in different parts of India as also 08 Overseas Centres in London, New York, Toronto, Lisbon Mexico, Australia, Kuwait, Doha, and Abudabi. The Bhavan has also 150 Constituent units imparting training from Kindergarten to Post-Graduate studies and Research in subjects ranging from Sanskrit, Ayurveda, Indian Classical Music, Dance, Drama, Science, Engineering Technology, Journalism, Advertising, Media and Mass communication, Computer Technology and foreign languages like French, Spanish, Russian, German and Japanese.
The Bhavan opened its first Kendra in Kerala in Kochi in the year 1970. With Kochi Kendra serving as the spring board and model, the Bhavan founded ins second centre in Kerala Thrissur in 1978, followed by Kendras at Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Kannur, Irinjalakuda, Palakkad, Ponnani, Tirunavaya numbering 30 Kendras in Kerala State. Bhavan’s Wayanad Kendra is the first rural Kendra to be established in the year 1991. With an idea to extend its thrust in backward and rural areas, where the need to light the lamp of learning and open the windows of culture is paramount, the Bhavan has started a Kendra in the rural district of Wayanad at Sulthan Bathery.

Let me once more set forth the Bhavan’s faith for the benefit of new students and members, for its 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 an amoral technological avalanche, it tries to hold fast to the fundamental values for which our culture stand – Rita, Satya, Yagna and tapas :
FAITH in God Who in-forms the Cosmic Order ;
TRUTH which 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 into things of beauty.
This, regardless of forms and doctrines, is dharma, the three-fold aspects of which are SATYAM, SHIVAM, SUNDARAM – Truth, Love and Beauty.
For these values our forefathers lived and died. So did Sri.Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Swami Dayananda, Swami Vivekananada, Gandhiji and Sri.Aurobindo, among the moderns.
These values are embedded in our national outlook.
We command the respect 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 age of ours.
We, the Bhavan’s family, whether its is the smaller one or the larger one, must make every effort in resorting an awareness of these values in personal and collective life.

Yoga and Meditation Class at Bhavan’s Wayanad

In the modern world of new generation students and fast food habit of life, no wonder people are struck with incurable illness both mental and physical. As a panacea for all the incurable illness and inevitable stress based life style of the modern world, Yoga has a great role in this Yuga-the Kaliyuga. Yoga should be understood in the real nature. Yoga is not a magic or feat of any kind, physical or mental. Yoga is based on a sound philosophy and deep psychology. It is an educational process by which the human mind is trained to become more and more natural and weaned from the unnatural conditions of life. In Yoga we study ourselves, while in our Schools we are told to study objects. Not the study of things but a study of the very structure of the student is required by the system of Yoga, for the ‘known’ is not totally independent of the ‘knower’.
Yoga is essentially a study of self by self, which initially looks like an individual affair, a process of Self-investigation (Atma-Vichara) and Self-realization (Atma-sakshatkara). While the psychology of Yoga comprises the functions of the internal organ, and its physics is of the five great objects or Mahabhutas, the philosophy of Yoga transcends both these stages of study. Yoga is, therefore, spiritual, superphysical or supermaterial, because materiality is shed in its achievement, and consciousness reigns supreme. This is the highest object of Yoga, where the individual and the universe do not stand apart as two entities but come together in a fraternal embrace.
The aim of Yoga is to raise the status of the individual to the cosmic level and to abolish the false difference between the individual and the cosmic. Yoga is search for Truth in its ultimate reaches and above its relative utility. Adequate preparations have to be made for this adventure. We have to become honest before Truth, and not merely in the eyes of our friends. This openness before the Absolute is the meaning behind the observance of what Yoga calls Yamas, as a course of self-discipline which one imposes upon oneself for attaining that moral nature consistent with the demands of Truth.
A Yoga student is always happy, and is never worried or vexed. Yoga prescribes Santosha or contentment in whatever condition one is placed. Many of our illnesses are due to discontent. Contentment follows as a result of the acceptance of the wisdom of God.
If God is wise, there is nothing to worry about, because in His wisdom He keeps us in the best of circumstances. Many changes have taken place in our lives, and many more may take place in the future. We have to be prepared. God’s omniscience permits of no complaint. Man should be contented with what he has, though he may be discontented with what he is. Honestly felt needs will be provided where contentment and intelligent effort go together. Meditation also has an equally important role and is the seventh stage in Yoga. It is like striking a match which produces the flame. The flame must be there if the striking is properly done, and the matchstick is dry. But the manufacture of the match is a long process, and it takes time, though the striking of it is a second’s work. That the effort of meditation does not bring satisfaction in many cases should show that the preparation is not sufficient.
Meditation is a flow of consciousness, not a jump, a pull or push of consciousness. The foundation is never seen when the building on it is seen. But we know how important the foundation is for the building.
Asana is the third rung in the ladder of the practice of Yoga. If the Yamas and Niyamas are the foundation of Yoga, Asana may be regarded as its threshold. Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi are considered as the internal and true Yoga, while everything else is an external accessory to it. Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama and Pratyahara constitutes the external (Bahiranga) Yoga, while Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi are the internal (Antaranga) Yoga.
With the aim of training the students by giving a proper insight into the above said things, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Sulthan Bathery, Wayanad has taken the first step of initiating the students into the world of Yoga for a more disciplined and contented way of life.
Bhavan’s Wayanad is blessed with a beautiful ambience for learning Yoga and the construction of the new Meditation cum Yoga hall adds to its etiquette. A Yoga crash course was conducted successfully in the month of May from 12th to 18th during the summer vacation 2014-2015. All the students who have participated in the Yoga class got benefitted by learning different Yogasanas, praanayaama, meditation, surya namaskaar, Sookshma vyaayaam etc… All the sessions have been documented for the student’s future benefit and are available on demand.
Yoga classes are an integral part of Educare program in Bhavan’s wayanad since last academic year and will continue to serve the students incessantly in future.

Some speakers are born; but rest are made! In this highly competitive world of modern education just being first in class and exams are of no use until unless a student is able to express all his knowledge orally to a third person without pause and punctuations. And when it comes to the situation of addressing an audience the situation worsens even more for a student if he or she doesn’t acquire the art of public speaking. Public speaking is an art and that art should be learned using correct shades like that of any other art form. The different colours which make the art of public speaking fabulous are body language, maintaining proper eye-contact with the audience; extricate oneself from the clutches of stage fear, courage, confidence, modesty in dressing, control over the subject etc… Iinorder to achieve the above said qualities, the student’s should be trained from the school level itself so that when they grow up they can become good speakers and can reach the pinnacle of success in their future. As a foundation stone for building the mansion of public speaking art, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Sulthan Bathery started a public speaking forum for all the students who are really interested in the art of public speaking and the first training session was conducted during 2014-2015 summer vacation in the month of May as a one week crash course. From this year onwards the service of Public Speaking Forum will be available for all the students who are interested in public speaking throughout the academic year and also during summer vacation in the month of May
