Motto & Mission:
Motto and mission has been stated in the College Emblem as “असतो मा सद्गमय” i.e. “Lead me from untruth unto truth”. What type of truth? The truth which is beauteous and welfare oriented. How can it be beauteous and welfare oriented? It may be possible only through dissemination of knowledge, since there is no such eye at par with “knowledge” and there is nothing pure and sacred as “knowledge”. Knowledge refines human being and makes it useful for mankind because knowledge is the manifestations of perfection in mankind. As per the Indian tradition, knowledge is of two types namely, Apara (materialistic) and Para (Spiritual).
The materialistic knowledge is based upon the rational principle of cause and effect relationship. Seen in this perspective, knowledge gives humility and sobriety which lead to eligibility. Eligibility thus attained helps in accumulating riches and ethical values, which lead ultimately to real prosperity. On the other hand spiritual knowledge liberates the soul [सा विद्या या विमुक्तये].
