These students generally come from Dharmatala-Panchuria Village.Both these activities are being fully managed by the students themselves and the overall impact appears to be highly positive, a fruitful experience for both university students as well as village children.

Radical Prayer

Stay Away From Anger. It Hurts only You!
If You Are Right, Then There is No Need to Get Angry.
And If You Are Wrong Then You Don't Have Any Right to Get Angry.

Patience with Family is Love.
Patience with Others is Respect.
Patience with self is confidence.
Patience with GOD is Faith.

Every test in your life makes you better or bitter.
Every problem comes to make you or break you!
The choice is yours whether you become victorious or victims.

Beautiful things are not always good.
But Good things are always beautiful.

Do you know why God created gaps between fingers?
So that someone, who is special to you, comes
And fills those gaps by holding your hand forever.

"Happiness" keeps you sweet.
But being sweet brings happiness.


Rev. Fr. John Felix Raj
125th Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's Chicago address
