The foundation stone for Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham’s 200-acre campus at Amaravati, was laid by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Sri. N. Chandrababu Naidu on 7th February 2018. Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, President, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham on this occassion said, “Amma says education should enrich students both internally and externally. Collecting information from the world, books, and instructors is only a part of it. For real education to happen, the student’s heart must open up. This cannot be gained by merely increasing one’s intellectual capacity. Nurturing this is the ultimate goal of Amrita.
