Vision
We envisage chinthanaloka as an institution that caters to the "integral development" of the student: mature in relationship with fellow human beings; rooted in a solid religious vision of god, man and the world; competent to dialogue with people in a multi-religious and pluri-cultural context and committed to one’s own responsibilities as a god-fearing citizen.
Mission
Chinthanaloka leads the mind and heart of the student to explore the world of thought expressed especially through philosophy, religion, humanities and education so that he/she acquires:
  • The human qualities that empower him/her to be free in his/her love and service to all by engaging in mature dialogue with all men;
  • The religious qualities that open his/her life of faith and trust in god and enable him/her to live by his/her religious convictions;
  • The intellectual qualities that empower him/her to access knowledge and to contribute to knowledge-creation for a more culturally advanced and prosperous humanity;
  • the spiritual and salesian qualities that enable him/her to become a father/mother, friend and spiritual guide of youth like don bosco.
Motto
Is taken from the gospel of St. Luke 18:41 on the encounter between the blind man of Jericho and Jesus. The yearning of the blind man to “see” reflects every human person’s insatiable search for meaning. This search reaches its zenith in that realm where the “seeing” becomes an experiential awareness of the totality of reality. The formation that chinthanaloka offers is geared towards the realization of this insight into the mystery of reality and thereby paves the way for an active participation in the establishment of the Reign of god on earth.
