The Brahma Vidya Yoga Society (BVYS) was founded in 1993 at Rose Belle by the Master Dr Raaj Ittyandeo APPIAH. BVYS is a charitable, educational and philosophical institution which has the primary objective of fostering the true essence of humanity.
Regular classes including chanting, music and questions and answers sessions were initially carried out at the master’s residence at Marie Jeannie Rose Belle, every Friday evening. Spiritual gatherings were conducted at a member’s residence every last Friday of the month. Kirtans and bhajans were an integral part of the spiritual programs to create a conducive and meditative atmosphere. Spiritual discourses cover different aspects of all spheres of life for the inculcation of basic human values.
Later on, classes were held at the Marathi Oopkaree Sabha Hall of Mont-Fertile which warmly hosted the activities of the BVYS for some five years. Simple and basic aspects of meditation were eventually introduced. Occasionally, a spiritual retreat day was organized in a remote location in nature, near the seaside or a natural reserve. Yoga, breathing exercises, questions and answers and music sessions were common activities that formed part of the event.
Finally after much hardship, the BVYS managed to acquire a portion of land at Rose Belle in the vicinity of the Centre Commercial du Vieux Moulin. Thereon the construction of the Centre of Learning and Wisdom was undertaken.The National Corporate Social Responsibility Committee (NCSRC) enrolled the BVYS on the list of Approved NGO and the respective Accreditation Number is N/1465.The BVYS ultimately embarked on a journey to fulfil its most cherished dream: that of securing a piece of land of its own in order to meet its objectives and spread words of wisdom throughout the country.
