DJVP is a place to experience community life in a creative manner where all experience the love and care for each other. And learn from each other’s creativity. Since the seminary is located in a rural area, we are explored to the realities of so many social issues like ill treatment of women and discrimination, casteism, farmer’s struggles and poverty. We are challenged to learn theology that has relevance in Indian context. Seminary equips missionaries to serve people and realize once calling.

Dharma Jyoti Vidya Peeth is the place where I started my journey to recognise God's will in my life. It nourished my visions, perceptions and world views. It built my affection to love and care nature and set my goal to enter into His Vineyard.
Rev. Maju Mathew
I am a product of Dharma Jyoti I’m really thankful to the Lord almighty for granting me an opportunity to live in and to learn from Dharma Jyoti Vidya Peeth . Dharmajyoti gave me enormous opportunity to find myself and it made me an entirely renewed person. The spiritual and physical atmosphere really made an impact on my life. For me, every engagement at Dharma Jyoti was a learning engagement. I believe that the ‘spirit of Dharmajyoti’ is the real motivating factor behind my mission endeavours. It is the place of unity, harmony and the place from where the mission grooms. It unites the spirit of being together, ignites the minds to serve the needy, provide opportunity to experience different cultures of the nation. The lessons from Dharma Jyoti guide my daily moves, thoughts, and my devotions. Still I carry my seminary with me though I am out of it. So I feel so proud to say “ I’m a product of Dharma Jyoti”
Rev Shibu Thomas Skariah
