The only God to worship is the human soul in the human body.
The Northeast region is considered the crown of Bharat and Arunachal Pradesh its crest jewel and therefore it is vulnerable to the evil designs of forces inimical to India. Bharat Ideal Social Order is a unique one and its preservation, protection and promotion is a prime necessity. This Ideal Social Order is still prevalent in living form in all the eight States of the Northeastern region. It is the responsibility of all patriotic citizens of this great land to contribute their time and energy for the purpose. Shri Eknath Ranade, founder of Vivekananda Kendra was therefore very particular that appropriate multi-dimensional activities should be undertaken here.
With this in view, Kendra is working in the region with the theme â€œDevelopment through Culture. Kendra is at present having numerous active branch centres in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Nagaland and is slowly increasing its activities to the Northeastern States.
