Veda Class in progress

Students here learn Samhita, Pada, Krama, Jata and Ghanam in this patasala, in that order. Ours is one of the the important centres for vedic learning in South India offering Jata and Ghana patams in Krishna yajur Veda. At present we have around 5 students undertaking vedic studies in our veda patasala premises.


As we are completing the construction of the Veda Gurukulam we are still in need of Rs.4 lakhs and are confident we can achieve it with your continued support.

Hence we appeal to everyone who believes in the preservation of our ancient scripts and tradition, to contribute towards this noble cause to their might.


It is manifest that chanting of the Vedas protects the Universe, irrespective of caste or creed.



The wealth we may accumulate and bequeath to our descendants will in no way compensate the loss it will be causing, if proper support is not given to the study of Vedas.
