The tide of mindless globalization, excessive consumerism, the throwaway counter culture and rapid economic as well as political changes have created insecurity all over the world. People are frustrated with dogmatic political ideologies, craze for consumerism, rock and roll and reality shows.  Human Mind cannot   find solace and happiness in such sensational trivialities. The search for a stable moral world order is already on way. India is the destination for all such men. The world has also realized that India will become a super power with a difference- economically viable and also spiritually enlightened.

At the same time we should   not forget that various forces in and abroad are working against our country and its culture. Recurring bomb blasts, religious conversions, spread of counterfeit currencies, virulent abuse of Hindu gods and goddesses, violation of traditional values and ethos, minority appeasement and cross border terrorism are some of the visible symptoms.  For the sake of not only India but also for the sake of humanity’s future, this threat has to be dealt with at all levels.  

Many political leaders, alienated intellectuals and subservient academicians are conspicuously silent in the face of the total assault upon our country, culture, education, art, literature, and social institutions. The wanton assault on our cultural institutions, education and philosophy has particular implications for our national existence and identity.

People all over the world are looking at Bharat for necessary guidance with rising expectations. The myth that India is only a land of snake enchanters and pagan gods has already become part of an irrelevant past. Instead they realize that India is a treasure house of knowledge and wisdom, of Sanathana Dharma.

Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram was founded in the year 1982. It was established as an intellectual-educational –cultural institution to take up these challenges effectively, through in-depth studies, research, and education. The Kendram has  functioning units in all academically important centers of Kerala.

It is a “Centre of studies and Research for National Reconstruction” which addresses itself to an in depth study of the multi-dimensional achievements of India with a view to substantiate their validity in the present context.

“The Indira Gandhi Open University” and “ Maharshi Dayanand Saraswathy University ” have accredited Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram. We offer Masters Degree and research degree in Philosophy, Economics, Sanskrit and a host of other subjects.

We envisage developing full-fledged research center of Sanskrit and Indian studies, developing a documentation center and data storage facility. Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram offers foundation course on Indian History (one year course) journalism course, short-term Sanskrit courses, Yoga classes and seminars on culture, philosophy and current events with a nationalist perspective. Our ultimate aim is to create a world class University for Indological studies.                                                                  

We are addressing this letter to you because you are one of the esteemed professionals who might be genuinely interested in promoting such a noble and worthy Hindu cultural cause.

As you may know, while there are a number of good Hindu organizations out there doing useful work, it may not be possible for them to be active in every aspect of deserving areas.

As proud concerned Hindus, Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram would like to take the idea of : –

Preserving protecting and promoting our intellectual-cultural-scientific-and philosophical heritage one-step further.  Our goal is to connect local, national and international educational and cultural organization, through our message and mission.

In an effort to meet the growing needs of Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram, we solicit your solid support.  We have made every effort to trim our expenses without jeopardizing our program and must now look to our friends’ abroad to bridge the budgetary gap.
