Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence (VIHE)
Concerned about the gradual erosion of moral and spiritual values in every sphere of life and activity, Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad, felt the urgent need for starting an institute to impart the age-old cherished ideals and values aimed at providing, what the great patriot-monk Swami Vivekananda had said, ‘life-building, man-making, character-making and nation-building’, education and training.
The result is the establishment of the Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence in the holy precincts of the Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad, which was inaugurated by Srimat Swami Ranganathanandaji Maharaj, then President, Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, on 10 September 2000.
The chief aim of the Institute is to instill faith in oneself and impart nobler values of life and life-giving strength, to raise individuals to higher levels of strength and felicity with spiritual, moral, ethical and eternal values of personality development and human excellence.
Various programmes are intended for the aspirants coming from different cross sections of society, like the youth, students, teachers, employees of Government departments, public sector undertakings, corporate bodies and professionals like engineers, doctors and others.
Since the inception of the Institute, more than 6,00,000 candidates have been trained in different courses.
