In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions and none will be imposed. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as God gives to us. - Swami Vivekananda

Our Vision is development and growth of Bharat, in all fields of human endeavour - cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual - culminating inSwasth- Samarth-Sanskarit Bharat i.e. physically, economically and morally strong India.
Our Mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty.
Aim of most NGOs is socialization where public service is merely a cosmetic affair which has no deep impact on society. However, fellowship in the Parishad is only a means to an end and not the end. Activities of Bharat Vikas Parishad are comprehensive and aim at multifaceted development of the society combining equally both sanskar and sewa aspects with capacity building of those served. .
