Let me once more set forth Bhavan’s faith for the Benefit of new students and members, for it is necessary that they should understand it clearly and imbibe its spirit.

The Bhavan stands for the reintegration on Indian culture.

In a world falling to pieces under the impact of an amoral technological avalanche, it tries to hold fast to the fundamental value for which our culture stands- RITA, SATYA, YAGNA and TAPAS.

FAITH in God who informs the Cosmic Order;

TRUTH which is in accord between mind, word and deed;

DEDICATION which offers all moments of life as an offering to God;

SUBLIMATION which purifies the body and mind and transmits instincts, passions and emotions into things of beauty.

For these values our forefathers lived and died. So did Sr. 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 age of ours.

We, the Bhavan’s family whether it is smaller one or the larger one must make every effort in restoring an awareness of these values in personal and collective life.
