Samskriti: About Us
Samskriti is the cultural wing of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri Campus. The primary objective of this association is to inculcate the still relevant traditional values among the students. Samskriti aims to promote awareness of the Indian identity and foster integration and unity among our students.
"Spirituality is the core of Indian culture. If we imbibe our culture properly, we will find that it contains solutions to all of our problems as individuals and as a society. That is why Swami Vivekananda constantly extolled the youth to develop a heartfelt bond with their country and its culture. At the same time, they need to develop an independent intellect and an open mind. They should find the courage to accept the good and reject the bad wherever they may find it.
Only if we lay a strong foundation can we erect a tall building. Similarly, only if we have knowledge and pride in our forefathers and heritage, can we create radiant present and future.
There is one fact that each Indian citizen should remember. Our heritage is incomparable. We should adopt the good from other countries while remaining firmly rooted in love for our own country and its culture."
Extract from Amma’s booklet "Cultivating Strength and Vitality"
Under the inspirations of our beloved Amma, Samskriti has been taking the initiative to inspire the student community in understanding and experiencing our culture through a wide range of programs, such as Indian festival celebrations, cultural performances, art workshops, lecturer series, heritage tours and a quarterly student journal, as well as diverse projects collaborating with various art and cultural organizations, schools and renowned artists from India and abroad.
