It was in the year 1997, that Dr. S.C. Vats, founder of Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (VIPS), met Swami Jitatmananda Ji, an eminent educationist, management expert, author of books on Modern Physics & Vedanta and Indian Ethos in Management, an active social worker and the editor of Prabudh Bharat (Awakened India), a journal started by Swami Vivekananda.
As the destiny ordained under a silver oak tree at ‘Advait Ashram’ in Mayawati in Pithoragrah District of Uttaranchal, vibrating thoughts were flowing from Swamiji’s lips in the balmy aroma of the dense pine and fir forest and he almost gave a diktat to Dr. Vats to set up an Institute, for higher learning in the capital city of India, in the name of Swami Vivekananda, a prophet and a path finder.
It was a gigantic task that fell upon Dr. Vats’ shoulders. But resolved as he was,he returned to Delhi and in a couple of months’ time sold his ancestral house and from the sales proceed of that house seed capital was created, which was so very important for establishing a new Institute with high ideals.
In order to materialize Swamiji’s dreams, Dr. Vats rolled out a road map. As a first step, he held brain storming session with eminent scholars and people from academia along with some legal luminaries and retired civil servants.
