The Vedanta claims that there has not been one religious inspiration, one manifestation of the divine man, however great, but it has been the expression of that infinite oneness in human nature; and all that we call ethics and morality and doing good to others is also but the manifestation of this oneness. - Swami Vivekananda

The mission of India has been to guide the humanity in the path spirituality, help humanity in spiritual evolution. India alone can do that as She has the vision of Oneness — Akhandamandalakaram, Ekatma Manava Darshan- expanding (evolving) man is a family, expanding family a community, expanding family a society, nation and expanding nation is a whole universe thus we are all interconnected and therefore interdependent.

Man is not a sinner but potentially divine and goal of life — to manifest divinity.

She developed the Dharma (The duty of man to maintain the harmony around of the enlarging samshti) based society so as the each one is taken care of and is provided opportunities to grow and evolve.

Our national ethos: longing for Mukti, for realization of that divine nature, for that pursuit of Dharma — Purushartha — Dharma has been the life Prana of our nation.

Present paradoxical situation: What are the indications of the manifestation of Dharmik life? Not just going to temples, Katha Kirtanas. But traits that develop in a God-ward society, Dharrnik, spiritual society are purposeful living, discipline, character, truthfulness, fellow-feeling, fearlessness, subordination of the self and a zest for works of public good.

Distorted Conception of Religion, dharma, and spirituality is the Root Cause of Our ills. Therefore, Swami Vivekananda's lectures in Madras in February 1897. We have to rebuild India on Spiritual lines —jewels from Vedas, Upanisads and Bhagvad Gita should be scattered across the length & breadth of Bharat — made available to masses in modern languages.

As god is everywhere, the real spiritual life means experiencing the presence of God in one's own self and in the world. That makes one conscious of the divine within and urges him to work for its unfoldrnent and enables him to grow spiritually. Simultaneously, it generates in him a sense of oneness with God's creation and, consequently, an intense fellow-feeling for the members of his own species — the human race — and prompts him to work with zest for human welfare and progress. This is what Swami Vivekananda insisted by exhorting us to serve man serve God, Faith in yourself etc.

Late Mananeeya Eknathji took inspiration from the message of Swamiji while compiling 'Rousing Call to the Hindu nation'. He realized that as Dharma is the Prana of Indian Nation, its dynamic and vibrant meaning shall invigorate the nation. He felt that the

Need of the Hour was to launch a two-pronged Movement. He said :

“The remedy for the ills of our country, therefore, lies in launching a mighty movement of right thought sweeping the entire country. It has to be a two-pronged move. On the one hand, it is to be aimed at (1) transforming our people's inherent God-wardness into the right spiritual urge rising out of the teachings of the Upanishads, namely, (a) each soul is potentially divine and (b) faith in God, in turn means faith in one's self, i.e. in one's potentiality to rise to divine heights. On the other hand, it is (2) to convert the spiritual fervour thus released into works of national reconstruction"

Thus he launched Vivekananda Kendra. The most effective science and methodology to awaken the divinity in man and to channelise it for national reconstruction is Yoga.

Yoga is non-sectarian. As Vivekananda Kendra wants to be place where all can come to gather, Yoga is the best medium.

Yoga is the solution for all the present problems of man-kind like disintegration of families, social systems disturbed, mind because of that ailments, violence, ecological imbalance etc. The mission of India is to guide the whole world, Kendra is working to establish India as Jagadguru, therefore the Yoga in Kendra is not presented as yoga therapy but a way of life, which would bring paradigm shift, which would change the present reductionist way of life and bring Integral — holistic- way of life.

Today for national regeneration work we need to bring the eminent, elite and established persons of the society to our Vedic thinking. For that Yoga is the best medium. This class gets easily attracted by Yoga. So it is a best medium for us to approach people.
Therefore Eknathji established Yoga as the core of Vivekananda Kendra. Yoga meant by Eknathji is not just for physical, therapeutical, individual benefits & salvation but also to "Bring together the scattered spiritual forces for National Union" — Rashtra Nirman. — Process of Man making for Nation building.

Yoga is not a physical exercise, a therapy, an other worldly affair but a way of life in which integration of body, mind and intellect as well as integration with the samashti around is achieved.  Yogabhyas in Yoga Satras and Vargas or the yoga modules should not be therefore focused only on Asan-Pranayam and Kriyas but should be designed to develop and cater to the needs of all the Pancha Kosas and should integrate a person with the Samashti. It should be samagra yoga.

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…


Rediscover Bharatham!!! Our Father of Nation Mahatma's dream was "Ramarajya in BAharatham". The word secularism may oppose the term used 'Ramarajyam', the term means a land of TRUTH AND VALUES. The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
