Vision of Swami Vivekananda and our inspiration

“Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life.”

“Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man.”

“We must have life building, man making, character making assimilation of ideas.

If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library…”

“ The spiritual impact that has come to Belur [Math] will last fifteen hundred years, and it will be a great university. Do not think I imagine it;    I see it. ”

RKMVERI aims to actualize Swami Vivekananda’s educational vision of life building, and character-making education by combining the best elements of the East and the West
