Who we are

Arsha means "from the Rishis (Sages). Vidya means knowledge. Parampara means tradition/lineage. Hence Arsha Vidya Parampara means "The knowledge tradition coming down from our Sages/Seers".

We are a non-profit organisation conducting online classes and residential courses to enable people from around the world benefit from the timeless knowledge of our Rishis, primarily Vedanta (Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads), Hatha Yoga & Sanskrit. The classes are conducted by Swami Sarvananda Saraswati, a disciple of Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati (1930-2015), along with a few others. We belong to the Advaita parampara (teaching tradition).

The trust has been created by Swami Sarvananda Saraswati, Swami Prajnanananda Saraswati & Sri Jithendranath Vaidyanathan.
