ACPR is the brain child of Gurudev Dr. R. D. Ranade. Initially known as Academy of Philosophy and Religion and established in 1924 in Pune and then sifted to Belagavi in the year 1952 which is registered as Academy of Comparative Philosophy and Religion, Belagavi, Karnataka, India. ACPR is a global platform for the call of “Awareness of Unity” and a global gallery echoing the eternity ever whispering the tune of our philosophical, spiritual, cultural and historical heritage. ACPR is not a mouth-piece/spokesman of any one Religion, Faith, Sect, Cult or Sampradaya. One God, one World, one Humanity theme is the unity mission of ACPR.

If the proposed Academy will only teach self-criticism and good humoured tolerance in matters religious, it will have achieved something of permanent value, even if it never catch that will-o’-the-wisp, the ultimate Reality underlying all religious and philosophies, which has mocked and lured on human reason through countless ages.”
