A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty... We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.

BHARATIYA INSTITUTE OF HUMAN EXCELLENCE
"Knowing others is wisdom. Knowing the self is enlightenment."
- Lao Tse
Among the mountains, I am the Himalayas.
We are guided by knowledge, inspired by examples and mould our life through social values. While our natural instincts are blind, I call it a faultline of evoluation, and the only purpose of it is to continue the specie. Unless this instinct is controlled by intelligence and social & cultural values, we tend to faulter. There are many people who not only conduct themselves with wisdom, but also direct the society, government and industry towards a brighter future and lead the evolution to its higher goals. They are the leaders. They only infuse values to life, bring about changes through scientific innovations, exploring the true nature of human beings, defying the rule of nature, creating new paths towards fulfillment of human lives.
Our limitations are many but possibilities numerous. Our natural insticts keep us bound and we strive to go out of these limitations. This struggle and aspiration combined with hardwork and intelligent direction make a commoner a great one. When we continue to strive, we may fail at times, but it is impossible not to succeed most of the times.
At this institute we would like to set in motion a process by which the dormant fire lying in us could be ignited and made dynamic.
Do not forget we are all spark of that infinite power that brought us to the planet earth.
Igniting fire in you.
The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects it to change.
The leader adjusts the sails.
- John Maxwell
