Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Taliparamba

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is an Indian educational trust. It was founded on November 7, 1938 by Dr. K. M. Munshi, with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi.[1] The trust's programmes, through its 117 centres in India, 7 centres abroad and 355 constituent institutions, cover "all aspects of life from the cradle to the grave and beyond -- it fills a growing vacuum in modern life", as Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru observed when he first visited the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in 1950. Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Taliparamba Kendra (BVB Tpba) is a senior secondary school affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi. It is a part of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, a group of India's premier educational institutions and is situated in Mahatma Udyan, Taliparamba, Kannur District, Kerala. Ideals

The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is a totally apolitical organisation. Munshi looked upon the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan as an "adventure in faith", a faith not only in India's past, present and future, but also in India's people who have a rich and unbroken cultural heritage. The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan believes that there are elements in all cultures which transcend all barriers and knit people together. Its ideal is Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, which means "the world is one family"

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's motto is "Let noble thoughts come to us from every side", a quote from the Rigveda. The constitution of the Bhavan lays down the qualities that everyone connected with the Bhavan should develop for the Bhavan's consolidation and sustained growth. They are:

  • An understanding of the aims of the Bhavan and a sense of identification with them, expressed in continuous efforts to realise them in every field of activity.
  • A spirit of dedication to the Bhavan which will prompt everyone to ask, not "what can I get from the Bhavan?" but "what can I do for the Bhavan?"
  • A faith in the culture of our land, particularly in the Epics and in the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.
  • The habit of daily prayer, in private and in congregation and the practice of invoking the grace of God before any work is begun and to so do it that it is fit to be offered to Him.
  • A passion for the Sanskrit language, to study it oneself and to popularize it among others.
  • The development of a healthy mind that is neither petrified by custom nor capering at the call of every fancy, but which is rooted in the past, draws sustenance from the ennobling elements in the present and strives for a more radiant future


Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Taliparamba Kendra was founded in 1999 on 8.5 acres of land in the heart of Taliparamba Taluk. The school functions under the purview of the Taliparamba Kendra of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.Sri. P C VIJAYARAJAN is the Chairman of the Kendra.

School motto

The motto of the school is "Aa no badraaha kartavyo yanthu vishwatahah" (devanagari: आः नो भद्राः कर्तव्यो यन्तु विश्वतः) which translated to English means "Let Noble thoughts come to us from every side".
