|“||Education is not the amount of information that we put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. 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.||”|
|“||Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man.||”|
The primary goal of the university is to spread the knowledge acquired by the humanity through time freely.
... And to add to the knowledge store of human kind.
An underlying belief that value based education is integral to any academic enterprise.
Our methods are that which allow harmonious blend of science, art, humanity and spirituality.
And not less importantly, we have taken up the neglected areas of heritage studies.
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 for education to women, to poor, to tribals and to the underpriviliged.
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.Donations
