A brief introduction

No other country has been the home of as much effort for Self-realization as this sacred land of India. Constant in their search for the Self, the Seers of India were the first to discern the treasure of Vedas. Adorned by Upanishads, this treasure of Vedas is vast and deep as the oceans. On the basis of the Upanishads the dictum of One-ness of Atma (All beings in the Universe are of the nature of One Atma, the Paramatma. This multivarious universe is that One.) established as Shaankara Darshana is an invaluable contribution to the World Vision. The purpose of Vedantabharati institution is to take this Vision to everyone.

The Jagadguru Paramapujya Shri Shri Bharati Theertha Mahaswaminah, Dakshinamnaya Shri Sringeri Sharada Peethadhishwara, whom titles like Shrimatparamahansa extol, benevolently guides Vedanta Bharati as the Grand Patron. Paramapujya Shri Shri Shankara Bharati swaminah guides the institution as the Patron.
