Veda Nidhi

The Vedas are the repository of timeless knowledge and the wisdom of our ethos. They convey to the mankind the message of peace and compassion, the pursuit of truth, tolerance, liberation, oneness and a deep consciousness of the need for harmony between man and his spiritual, social and natural environments. In addition to being the principle source to lead us to God, the Vedas represent some of the most sublime literature.

In order to preserve, propagate and promote Veda in their pure and pristine form, Sri Avadhoota Datta Peetham has been playing a very significant role under the guidance of the Pontiff, Parama Pujya Sri Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji. Peetham has instituted an exclusive fund namely “Veda Nidhi”- primarily to Promote the study and awareness about Vedas.
