Vivekananda Kendra Academy of Indian Culture, Yoga and Management

[VK AICYAM], Bhubaneswar
Here and here alone the human heart expanded till it included not only the human, but birds, beasts, and
plants; from the highest gods to grains of sand, the highest and the lowest, all find a place in the heart of
man, grown great, infinite. And here alone, the human soul studied the universe as one unbroken unity
whose every pulse was his own pulse.
~ Swami Vivekananda
Indias culture and civilization are deeply rooted in her ancient religious and spiritual heritage. Since its
inception, it has been the concern of Vivekananda Kendra to appreciate the uniqueness of the various
communities while simultaneously nurturing the threads of harmony and unity.
Mananeeya Eknathji envisioned an institute that will bring out the underlying unity of our diverse cultural
traditions and foster better inter-community, inter-regional understanding. The Kendra thus launched the
VKIC (Vivekananda Kendra Institute of Culture), in 1996 at Guwahati for the Northeast. This being the Birth
Centenary of year of Mananeeya Eknathji, it was felt that this work should also expand to the eastern region.
To be located at Bhubaneswar, VK AICYAM is a Vivekananda Kendra Kanyakumari project to

to enrich, promote and strengthen the cultural tradition and art forms and to bring forth the unique
attributes of various communities in the eastern part of our country to nurture the commonalities

to contribute to the study of Yoga for holistic living and its application in the advancement of
Education, Health and Social integration with a modern scientific approach

to focus on the doctrines and ideas from ancient Indian scriptures which fill the lacunae in
contemporary management principles
