The Institute is blessed by the splendid and divine thoughts expressed by Gurudev Swami Omkarananda
in His own words:

Brahmavid Brahmaiva Bhavati

Brahmavid brahmaiva bhavati. The knower of the Brahman becomes the Brahman. Here knowing and being are one and the same. You not only know that you are infinite Consciousness-Bliss, but you become this infinite Consciousness-Bliss. To know Truth is to be the Truth. All Knowledge should and will ultimately lead to Knowledge of Brahman.

Pursue Knowledge passionately with all the love of your heart, the attention and concentration of your intelligence, with all the energies of your will. Knowledge builds character. Knowledge is power. Knowledge is light. Knowledge unfolds various abilities, capacities and brings you, when these abilities and capacities are put to use, immense wealth. Knowledge leads you to God-experience. The ultimate aim of every form of Knowledge is experience of the supreme Happiness, supreme Peace, infinite Knowledge, and supreme Perfection.

Obtain the highest Knowledge, the Knowledge of your inner Being as the ultimate Reality, the absolute Life, the source of all Perfections.

Gain a Knowledge that is all-independent, self-sustaining, all-perfect, unconditional and eternal. Guided by Wisdom all forms of Knowledge lead to the Knowledge of all Knowledges, the Supreme Knowledge. Brahmajnana is Brahma-Anubhava, the Knower of Brahman becomes Brahman himself.
