Chairman’s Message

Welcome to Vishwas!

In the following pages / links you will get to understand Vishwas as an organisation and what we have been able to do over the last 21 years.  There is not much I can say as Chairman of Vishwas except that it has been our privilege to be associated with an organisation whose sole purpose has been to reach out to people who need emotional support and can seek comfort and clarity in an absolutely confidential and caring environment.

We are also extremely happy and proud of the fact that in all the years we have been around we have stuck to our basic tenet ?to offer free services who come to us and NEVER charge a fee  and that all people who work with us are all on a voluntary basis who have never taken a rupee for their time  and expertise.

We commit ourselves to continue the work we have been doing to create a emotionally happy Bangalore city.

Thank you once again for visiting our web site. Please feel free to get in touch if you need our assistance.

Best regards
Ramesh Venkateswaran

Vishwas is for a mentally healthy and emotionally happy society. We will provide high quality, free counselling services to people in emotional stress. Our members are volunteers who offer their services on an honorary basis.

Vishwas respects every individual who comes to us. We will not knowingly engage in any action or activity that discriminates on the basis of race, colour, gender, age, disability, religion, nationality or sexual orientation.

Vishwas will also proactively reach out to conduct activities that meet the objective of creating a mentally healthy society and for generation of resources to sustain such activities.

“Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me. Neither the Bible nor the prophets — neither Freud nor research –neither the revelations of God nor man — can take precedence over my own direct experience. My experience is not authoritative because it is infallible. It is the basis of authority because it can always be checked in new primary ways. In this way its frequent error or fallibility is always open to correction.”
