Bhavan is guided by India's ancient concepts:
- Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam -


A Nation becomes great because of its citizens and good governance. A democracy of the people, by the people, for the people alone can take a Nation to greater heights. That is the main mission of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan was founded on November 7, 1938 by Kulapati Dr. K.M. Munshi at Mumbai and stands for the reintegration of Indian Culture. The real strength of the Bhavan is in building character, humility, selflessness and dedication, and works for building a peaceful India.
