We have three core values that characterize the way of “Simple Living and High Thinking". This is our tenet and we live it through Upasana - which gives us strength through prayers, Sadhana - which makes individuals vigilant through swadhayay and develops inner strength, and Aradhana - which leads our Karma towards selfless service. These values drive us to achieve divinity and spiritual awakening, and guide us towards pure knowledge and the righteous path.
