Jeevalaya Institute of Philosophy (JIP), a place of philosophical learning and research in the Garden City of India, was founded in 1996. Established and administered by the Missionary Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (MCBS), a Catholic religious order, JIP is committed to a vision that lays emphasis on the interdependence of life and philosophy. Philosophy emerges out of our lived-experiences and sustains itself as a search for the meaning and fullness of life. Hence the name Jeevalaya, meaning “abode of life” and the motto darshanat jeevah, meaning “from knowledge to life.”
