INTRODUCTION

Shri Veda Bharathi (SVB) is a Public Charitable Trust working for the past two and half decades for preservation and propagation of Vedic Knowledge and carrying out Research works related to Sanskrit and Vedas.

URGENCY FOR PRESERVATION OF VEDAS

The word ‘Veda’ means wisdom of highest order. Earlier the four Vedas were having 1131 branches, and now only 13 branches are traceable, 7 with teachers and 6 without teachers. Thus we are left with less than 1% Vedic knowledge only. As the causes for the colossal loss are still prevailing and continuing, there is a danger for these branches also. Hence the urgency is felt for immediate preservation of the remaining portions of Vedic knowledge.

SHRI VEDA BHARATHI WORKING FOR THE SOLUTION


Formation of Shri Veda Bharathi (SVB)

Shri Veda Bharathi (SVB), which was conceived in 1992 as a historical necessity, commenced the work of preserving the available Vedic knowledge in audio and multimedia form in CDROMs/ DVDs. It was registered as a Public Charitable Trust subsequently (1994).

ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR

To meet the above objectives, SVB took up several projects. Recording of rare chantings of RigVeda for the benefit of posterity, with the help of latest technologies, is one among such works which is taken up on high priority because of fastly reducing number of pandits who can chant Rigveda in all 11 modes. While three modes of chantings are already completed, our recording work related to Sikha and Danda modes is in progress. SVB has recorded the Vedic chantings for more than 1500 hours, of Rigveda, Samaveda and Yajurveda, The list of Vedic DVDs and CDs brought out by SVB so far is furnished in the website.

RESEARCH IN SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS OF VEDAS & SASTRAS

SVB is conducting research studies with respect to Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Spectroscopy, Space science, Cognition etc. The findings are brought out in the form of books titled as follows:

• Science and Technology in Vedas and Sastras
• Computer Science in Vedas (Vedas and Computers)
• Vedic Mathematics-both in English and Telugu
• Vedic Mathematics in Braille-for visually impaired students and youth
• Predictability of Earth Quakes using the knowledge of Jyotisha Vijnan


TEACHING PROGRAMMES

SVB recognized the need for creating awareness about India’s spiritual and scientific inheritance among the educated youth and students to inculcate the values. The series of lectures on “Veda Ganitam” (Vedic Mathematics), “Veda Vijnanam”(Vedic Sciences) and “Viswa Vijnanam” (Knowledge of Cosmos) etc., telecast by several channels, for about 700 episodes, are appreciated as highly educative. It is heartening to note that the Veda Ganitham programme received “Golden Nandi” Award from the Government of Andhra Pradesh (combined state) for the year 2008.

INTERNET BASED TEACHING OF SANSKRIT

The foundation language for all the Vedic Literature is Sanskrit. Unless the usage of Sanskrit is embraced and more and more people use the language, the hidden treasures of the Vedas cannot be unlocked. Towards this, SVB has begun offering courses in Sanskrit through the Internet Medium for the benefit of enthusiasts and vast majority of our students to learn the language in an accelerated way. A portal also is created with a series of Sanskrit lessons, with English as the metalanguage, for getting proficiency for the students.

CONSTRUCTION OF SUN DIAL AT DWARAKA TIRUMALA

With a view to demonstrate the greatness of our ancient Vedic Sciences in general, and of Jyotisha in particular, SVB constructed a Sun Dial system in the premises of Sri Venkateswara Temple at Dwaraka Tirumala, West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh.. This is visited by thousands of students, teachers, researchers and devotees everyday.
