Kulpati K.M. Munshi
Founder Bharatiya
Vidya Bhavan

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is a comprehensive national organization with an international outlook towards almost all segments of life. Primarily and essentially an educational and cultural organization, it has grown from small beginnings into an all India cultural and educational movement.Kulapati K. M. Munshi founded Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in 1938 with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi.

The Bhavan has its roots firmly embedded in the Indian soil but its spreading branches reach out to encompass the best of the modern world in the fields of science, technology, economics and management.

Sh. P.D. Kumar
Founder Chairman

Bhavan’s Amritsar Kendra was started in 1987. Late Sh. P.D. Kumar, a saintly and divine soul, donated his property worth lakhs of rupees to Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and was instrumental in the establishment of Amritsar Kendra. He very reluctantly consented to be the first chairman of Amritsar Kendra. Emulating the Gandhian ideology, he led his life based on the principle “Simple Living and High Thinking”. The Kendra is working on the road-map drawn by late Sh. P.D.Kumar and is committed to fulfill his vision.

The Kendra is expanding and diversifying its activities under the inspiring guidance of its present chairman Sh. Avinash Mohindru. Under his dynamic leadership, the Kendra has already initiated a large number of programmes and activities such as organization of value-based lectures and talks, organization of Yoga camps, establishment of Sh. P.D. Memorial “Gyan Deep School”, and Gandhi Institute of Computer Education.

Dr. Manmohan Singh
Prime Minister, India

Our Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has recognized the services and role of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and its Kendras in the following words:

The Bhavan is a unique institution because its feet are firmly placed on the solid foundation of our rich heritage and culture, while its head has soared into the skies to embrace all that is new and modern. The Bhavan has spread its wings and flown into new areas of education. It is valued institution across the country. It is, therefore, only natural that the Bhavan has branched off into the teaching of information technology.

I compliment you on your unceasing and untiring efforts to remain relevant to the needs of our society. I salute the patriotism and the humanism of all those who have helped build the Bhavan and continue to help in its manifold activities. I wish you well in your noble endeavours. I assure you that I will always be here to support and encourage the good work of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.
