An Appeal – From the Governing Council

Founded by H. H. Srimad Sudhindra Tirtha Swamiji, Head of Sree Kashi Math Samsthan, in the revered memory of H. H. Srimad Sukrtindra Tirtha Swamiji, this institute is the only one of its kind under Kashi Math Samsthan, Varanasi, and hence has very great scope. Efforts are being made with the blessings of Swamiji to elevate the Institute to the status of a Centre of Excellence in the field of Indological Studies. For this, a substantial Corpus Fund of 2 to 3 Crore rupees is required. Plan for Scholars’ Residence  in the presently available landed property is ready. This can  materialize only if generous persons come forward to donate liberally. The Library (books as well as Palm Leaf Manuscripts) has also to be expanded. It is also planned to establish a museum of antique material peculiar to GSB Culture to preserve this heritage.

All disciples of Sree Kashi Math Samsthan, well wishers and philanthropists are requested to contribute liberally towards this noble cause by offering funds, books on Indological /Oriental importance, manuscripts and other articles peculiar to GSB Culture. Donations are exempt from IT under section 80G.
