====================================================================

Education is the way to Enlightenment - Fiat Lux. 
Swami Vivekananda used to say that education is the panacea of all social evils.He said, 'We must have life-building, man-making, character-making assimilation of ideas.' And added 'What we want is that education by which character is formed strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one's feet.'
RKM , endeavors to educate the students in its charge according to the best traditions of the country, while instructing them in all directions – physically, mentally, intellectually and spiritually. As it prepares the students so that they may become strong and healthy citizens of the country rooted in sound moral principles, learn to respect the higher values of life and become conscious of their obligation to the society and its people.
The concept of self-education propagated by Vivekananda is being recast in modern day theories, where we talk of students as independent learners. The teacher being facilitator and the child learning through a spirit of inquiry lies within what he said,
"The teacher spoils everything by thinking that he is teaching. Within man is all knowledge and it requires only an awakening and that much is the work of the teacher." His concept of educating the poor, rural masses is as ensconced in Right to Education (RTE).

"Let there be light
“Om Asato maa sad-gamaya;        O Lord Lead me from the unreal to the real.
tamaso maa jyotir-ga-maya;           Lead me from the darkness to light.
mrtyor-maa amrutam gamaya.       Lead me from death to immortality.
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih.  May there be peace, and perfect peace”

Progress Report - 12-2-2014 - Working with Divine Ideals.

Vision of Vivekananda – Vision of Oneness …
– Realization & Manifestation of Divinity Within.
‘My ideal indeed can be put into a few words, and that is: to preach unto mankind their divinity and how to make it manifest in every movement of life.’
Mission of Swami Vivekananda
for the salvation of our individual self and for the well-being of all on earth.
Motto   Two-fold aim of service activities  - the ideology of Ramakrishna Math and Mission.

Men with Divine Ideals, harnessing goodness in them & in others, do service for the welfare of all.

Men of Asuric-Diabolic Nature exploit weakness in others to achieve their selfish ends impelled by ignorance, self-aggrandizement, hatred, etc. They exploit & oppress all their fellow beings, as also the Lord who is immanent in all.
Therefore let the scriptures are your guide in determining what should be done and what not. Understand the injunction of the scriptures first and then set yourself to work.                                                                                                                                                (Gita 16.24)

Message of Vivekananda - message of Freedom.
"My whole ambition in life is to set in motion machinery which will bring noble ideas to the door of everybody, and then let men and women settle their own fate. Let them know what our forefathers as well as other nations have thought on the most momentous questions of life. We are to put the chemicals together; the crystallization will be done by nature according to her laws. Keep the motto before you "elevation of the masses without injuring their religion” - swami Vivekananda
