Swami Vivekananda had defined Education as the process of the manifestation of Perfection already in all. To achieve this, he proclaimed

“Each Soul is potentially Divine. The goal of life is to manifest this Divinity within by controlling nature External and Internal. Do it by Work or Worship, Philosophy or Psychic control; by one or more or all of these and be Free” Based on this, we have adopted the expanded definition of Yoga consisting of four streams: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, Karma yoga and unity in diversity. And tracks all the five Koshas ( annamaya, Pranamaya, Moanomaya, Vijnanamaya and Anandamaya) of the individual and the whole creation.

Essentially all the UG, PG and Ph D courses are run in residential mode housed in the beautiful Residential Campus called Prashanti Kutiram. Now able to accommodate nearly 2500 students, faculty, etc. Known for its research, we have published more than 500 research papers in peer reviewed National and International reserach Journals fo repute and have been running IJOY and IJPPP technical Journals apart from Yoga sudha a popular monthly.
