About Us

Origins - Jnana Prabodhini 

Jnana Prabodhini is an organization which works for bringing Swami Vivekanand’s ideas into Practice. It is a multifarious institution working in the fields of Education, Research, Rural Development, Women Power, Youth Organization, National Integration and Health, with a view of Motivation Building and Attitude Formation of every person in all age groups to Change the Face of India for Better. 

The Inspiration, The founder of Jnana Prabodhini, Late Shri V.V. alias Appa Pendse was an Educationist, Social organizer, Patriot and an Active ideologue. In 1962, he envisioned an organization for putting into practice the thoughts of Swami Vivekanand -- his inspiration -- of changing the face of the Nation, through Man-making Education. Traditionally, this effort follows the concept of ‘Dharm-Sansthapana’ i.e. societal resurgence and reconstruction, a cyclic phenomenon propelled by our ancient heroes and saints. Centuries ago, this was advocated by Saint Ramdas and reiterated in the recent past by Maharshi Dayanand, Swami Vivekanand and Yogi Aurobindo.
