Vismay Foundation

VISMAY Foundation is the trust managed by spiritual minded people who strongly believe in the Prophet of the modern age Swami Vivekananda’s principles and ideology 'Serve Jiva as Shiva'. According to Swami Vivekananda,'the best way to serve and seek the God is to serve the needy, to feed hungry, to console the stricken, to help the fallen and friendless, to attend and serve those who require service'.

 Ideology of Vismay

Swami Vivekananda has said, 'Each soul is potentially Divine; the goal is to manifest this divinity within'. As the source of all things. life is divine through and through. Therefore our fundamental problems in life can only be solved when we are able to discover the centre of life, that is our hidden divinity.

In this connection Swami Vivekananda says ' Teach yourself, teach everyone his real nature; call upon the sleeping soul and see how it awakes. Power will come, goodness will come, purity will come, glory will come and everything that is Excellent will come, when this sleeping soul is roused to self conscious activity'. (The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda Volume III page 193)

Spiritual growth is stimulated by Meditation inwardly and the work done in a spirit of service outwardly. Here at VISMAY Foundation, both these aspects can be fulfilled.

VISMAY Foundation provides all of us a very conducive place for performing spiritual practices to manifest the hidden divinity.

The Trust's campus starts taking shape from February 2013, it was fort Rajgad and the beautiful mother earth who had blessed the place, its divinity inspired Shri Samir Sir to  start realizing practically  his wisdom was telling him from long time. Rajgad was the first capital fort of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who lived at Rajgad for more than 23 years.

The place selected at village Gunjavane was not an easy choice, geographically it is real remote place, far from all physical and social convince. But Shri Samir Sir took the challenge to overcome all difficulties and laid first stone of the Trust with the help of village people itself. Now it had become the place for which everyone feels like it’s their own.

VISMAY literally means ‘surprise’or ‘Wonder’. By performing little spiritual practices, one finds amazing transformation in one's behaviour, character and personality… That is VISMAY ! 

Vismay Foundation  provides all of us a very conducive place for performing spiritual practices to manifest the hidden DIVINITY.

It is a place to practice Yoga-Pranayama - Meditation, it is a place to know more about self management techniques like management of mind, stress management, time management, etc. by which one can live stressfree, tranquil and equipoise life  which is very essential in today’s turbulent world.

Maa Sarada Dnyaneshwri (MSD)

žFriends along with the value education, we  impart academic knowledge to the underprivileged kids &  youths on the subjects like Mathematics, Science, Spoken English, Computers, Accountancy, Costing, Management Accountancy, Financial Management,etc. totally free of cost.   

žThis activity we consider as a worship of Goddess Saraswati in a true sense.

Self Management, Yoga & Meditation Workshop

It is one of the most important and regular activities at VISMAY Foundation. It sees participation from many multinational corporate employees from major cities and mostly Pune and Mumbai.This activity is so famous that it seems immense participation from different places in Gujarat.   Many of senior professors and students from REC Surat regularly take part in these activities. We find major participation from students from MIT College, Symbiosis College and some other Collages from  Pune. People from different background, different cultural touch, students from different streams come, devote and spend their days in different yogic and spiritual practices based workshops on the subjects like

1) Yoga for better concentration 

2) Yoga in hectic Life

 3) Yoga for Peace and Happiness

 4) Yoga & Management of Mind

5) How to develop Contributor personality through Yogic Practices. 

The participants from Urban area  also  teach village students, take their activities based classes and even arrange enjoyable singing,dancing, drawing-painting, crafts making and science workshops for kids. 

Wisdom On Wheels (WoW):

This is our mobile unit through which we visit nearby villages, schools and make people aware of health, hygiene and literacy etc. 

Yes, people do say “Wow !!” after looking at these exhibitions which VISMAY Foundation conducts at different public places or schools or village Grampanchayat offices. 

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

Its pictorial presentation of Swami Vivekananda's ideologies, stories from his life and his mission for youth and man- making.  It is a moving exhibition which gets conducted on need- bases by enthusiastic VISMAYians. 

A future  plan includes to setting up a  mobile van which will be fully roaming across remote places and  helping to convey Swamiji’s messages. 

Apart from pictorial exhibitions, different banners and road show and street plays are used to conduct the sessions and convey the messages. 

Otherwise during off time, these artifacts are on permanent display at VISMAY campus hall. It helps to create awareness among villagers and youths. 

žMission Man Making (MMM):

Conduction of Workshops, Retreats, Seminars are especially for youths, teachers training programmes etc. on the man making & character building ideology of Swami Vivekananda. t is one of big initiatives  of all VISMAY activities. 

žBal Tirtha:

This is another VISMAY planned activity where poor needy kids can stay at VISMAY and complete their schooling. It will be residential based permanent camp for kids where VISMAY will be helping them to study and learn under VISMAY cover. Currently village Gunjavane does not have schooling facility beyond 7th standard. Kids have to walk down 5 km to attend secondary school. Whereas they have to travel more than 8 km to attend junior and senior colleges. It itself is very discouraging but the willpower of kids and students are strong and as they get motivated at VISMAY they happily complete their schooling. It had hugely helped in reducing school dropping rate.

This activity is not simple as such needs huge infrastructure and lot of financial backings.  But with strong will power we all are  totally dedicated to the cause and very soon its going to take shape.
