Our methods are that which allow a harmonious blend of science, art, humanity and spirituality. We run several programmes to help, guide and support the society and community. As a special effort, we run courses on yoga and meditation. Our concern is the individual and the society, so we are apolitical. We believe in the dictum that there are many paths for liberation — the final goal of every religion. We were among the pioneers of education to women, to poor, to tribals and to the underprivileged. Our university has several off-campus centres for different specialisations. Last but not the least, we need your active help and charitable instinct to run our programmes.
