Vishwa Jyoti Gurukul (VJG), the Institute of Philosophy and Religion of the Indian Missionary Society (IMS), traces its origin back to 1944 when philosophy was taught at Christnagar for the first time to the candidates of the newly established Society. In July 1985 the Gurukul opened its doors for the first time to students other than its own. Thereafter the Gurukul has been admitting students every year from various dioceses and religious Congregations according to the availability of seats. The Gurukul has a capacity for a maximum of 85 students and in recent years there are students from around 25 dioceses and a few Religious Societies besides the IMS.
