Vasudhaa Chaitanya founded the Viva Vedanta Foundation, a religious, charitable, non-profit organization, on 4th May 2013, with the objective of spreading ancient Indian wisdom to create an evolved society. The Foundation is centred on the principles of listening, learning and living, so as to spread the knowledge of our rich and ancient scriptures. Through the learning and contemplation of scriptures and all-round self-development of every individual, the mission is to show the way forward for wholesome living and inner peace of mind.This is done through the learning and contemplation of scriptures and a holistic understanding of the Self.
Vasudhaa Chaitanya is a dedicated teacher of Advaita Vedanta. When the call to explore the mysteries of the Universe and its function grew in her, she dedicated herself to the studies of Vedanta and learned under the enlightened exponents of Vedanta in Arsha Vidya Gurukulam (Coimbatore) and Sandeepany Sadhanalaya (Mumbai). She is now an accomplished Guru.
Through her lectures in lucid English and explanations, she decodes the wisdom in Advaita Vedanta, Upanishads, Bhagawad Gita and other texts and shows how to put it to practice in daily life. Her style of quoting examples and relating it to our day to day life makes it explicable even to the layman. She conducts lecture sessions and workshops that help one overcome emotional blocks and thereby enhance the potential within. These workshops immensely help to recognize and understand the true nature of our Self. She travels regularly within and outside India sharing her knowledge of the ultimate truth with spiritual seekers, thereby helping to make the world a much better and happier place.
The Foundation, under the guidance of Acharya, has served as a platform where individuals irrespective of caste, gender or ethnicity have come together for meditation, discussions and spiritual enlightenment. Located in the lush green and tranquil surroundings of Parsik Hill, Navi Mumbai, the Center conducts Vedanta courses, regular lectures, workshops and residential camps.
