Vivekananda Nidhi, a Public Charitable Trust , was established in February 1980 by the late Swami Yuktananda, a monk of the Ramakrishna Order. Since 1981, when the then Prime Minister Smt Indira Gandhi, delivered the Keynote Address in the first ever national seminar on ‘Value Orientation in Human Problem Solving’, the Nidhi has been working in the field of Value Orientation, Environmental Education and Ecological Ethics. All its activities—researches, seminars, workshops, panel discussions, courses, programmes in search of excellence—are geared to make people aware of values and condition actions accordingly. Vivekananda Nidhi focuses on the traditional concept of oneness of Indian wisdom for creating a sustainable community which is now condoned by modern science and ecological ethics. Although centred in India, the Nidhi has a worldwide vision.
