"Vivekananda Educational Society (VES) has now established a separate Trust called Vivekananda Vidya Kala Ashram Trust for the purpose of running a residential school under Gurukulam System of Learning realizing the fact that the wholesome development of children depends on the role models, namely the Gurus with whom they could come into direct contact, live with them and experience their influence rather than on any amount of theories they taught in class rooms during their student life. The Trust has now acquired nearly 25 acres of land in a village 40 km off chennai city, a location with serene atmosphere ideal for effective learning for life and living"

"What we want are Western science coupled with Vedanta, Bramacharya as the going motto and also Shraddha and faith in one's own self...What we need, you know, is to study independent of foreign control, different branches of the knowledge that is our own and with it the English Language and Western Science; We need technical education and all else that may develop industries so that men, instead of seeking for service may earn enough to provide for themselves" Swami Vivekananda
