Welcome To Our College


Mahadevananda Mahavidyalaya, a co-educational day College, originally affiliated to the University of Calcutta was founded in Monirampore, under Barrackpore Sub-division of North 24 Parganas, West Bengal, by Late Swami Jyotirmoyananda Giri Maharaj, in the sacred memory of his preceptor Late Swami Mahadevananda Giri Maharaj, on the auspicious day of Janmashtami, and the Independence Day, the 15th of August, 1968. The 15th of August being a holiday, the 16th of August has been officially declared as the Foundation Day of the College. This college accredited by NAAC at A grade. The vision of the Founder of this educational Institute Late Srimat Swami Jyotirmoyananda was to spread Science Education initially among the boys and girls and to that end, he founded this co-educational Degree College, a temple of formal higher education, to later the needs of the local people particularly the people of the industrial belt of North 24 Parganas and to satisfy the national needs at large. As the successor of the founder monk, we trust (our Mission)in the wider connotation of “Education” and we believe that education is the training for a meaningful life and a continuous process for making of a complete human being enriched in “Value Education”. As this institution was founded by a group of spiritual monk, we always concentrate our effort to imbibe among the students a sense of sacrifice, social awareness and respect for the proud Heritage of India. So our objective is:
  1. To convince our pupils that success in formal education can be worthwhile only when personal achievements are combined with social commitment and responsibility.
2. To instill and enhance confidence, consciousness and ability of our pupils to face an overhanging world.
3. To develop a temper of honesty, discipline and an undying sprit of success among the pupils.
We believe in the age old Sanskrit sloka:
  “Om sahana Bhabatu
Om Sahanau Bhaunakti
Om Saha Biryang Karaba Bahai
Tejashwi Nabadhitamastu
Ma Bidisha Bahai
Oh Shanti ! Shanti! Shanti!”
  i.e. may the supreme power protect us both (students and Teachers) May he empower us to enjoy the fruits of knowledge. May he empower us with vibgyor to attend the wisdom, through our teaching let there be no dislike between us (Student and Teachers). The above visitor, Mission of the institution is also reflected through our emblem. In the emblem the following water signifies, ceaseless selfless and uninterrupted flow of effort and endeavour (Karma), the lotus signifies, devotion and dedication (Bhakti), the conch shell below and announces, the devotion and dedication (Bhakti), the Conch shall bellows and announces, the inevitable victory of virtue over vice, the noble over the mean, Om invokes the awakening of eternal and endless Power within. All these, when combined together, herald the dawn of enlighten and wisdom (Jnana), signified by the rising Sun. The sloka attached to emblem “Tamaso Ma Hyotirgamaya “Signify” Lead us from dark to light” i.e. from formal knowledge to wisdom. The above vision, Mission and objectives are communicated to teachers, student, staff and stakeholder through our prospectus and through Academic Calendar published by the College & it is also directly communicated to the students through a few class lecturers at beginning of new session .
