SVB is a Public Charitable Trust working for the past two 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. Presently the Vedic literature is facing the threat of extinction. It is our sacred duty to preserve it.The four Vedas were said to have 1131 sakhas(branches) earlier.But now only 7 are being taught in Vedic schools. Thus we are left with less than 1% Vedic knowledge only... And hence the urgency.
SHRI VEDA BHARATHI WORKING FOR THE SOLUTION
SVB was established in 1994 as a historical necessity for preserving the available Vedic knowledge in audio and multimedia form in CDROMs/ DVDs..
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 mode is in progress which is funded by TTD.
SVB has recorded the Vedic chantings for more than 1000 hours, of Rigveda and Yajurveda, The list of our CDs brought out so far is furnished at the end.
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
• Upanishad Ratnavali (11 Upanishads)-Set of 4 books-(English and Telugu) etc.
SVB recognized the need for creating awareness of India’s spiritual and scientific inheritance among the educated youth and students to inculcate the values. The lectures on “Vedic Mathematics” (130 episodes) repeatedly telecast in Bhakti Channel and “Vedic Sciences” (75 episodes) telecast in TTD (SVBC) Channel 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 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.
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. This is visited by thousands of students, teachers, researchers and devotees everyday.
HONOURING THE SCHOLARS OF VEDAS & SASTRAS
SVB has been organizing Veda Sastra Conferences, for the past several years, and honouring outstanding Veda -Sastra Pandits and Sanskrit scholars.
Some of the Pandits honoured so far are :
• Mahamahopadhyaya Sri Dongare Veereswara Krishna Sastry,

We are also happy to submit that Shri Rameshwar Thakur, the then Governor of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, released our first book on Vedic Mathematics in 2007 at a meeting of SV Vedic University at Tirumala. In July 2003, the Government of India awarded the patent rights to us for the Design of Multilingual Multimedia Vedic Database.
