Other than Maharishi's Movement, the Vedic Life Foundation is the largest Vedic yagya organization in India. Around six thousand people across the world have received Vedic yagya services from our organization. The yagyas are performed by expert Vedic Pandits who were initiated into yagya technique at the age of 5-7 years. They chant the Vedic mantras with absolutely correct pronunciation and rythm. All our Vedic pandits have the traditional degrees of Shastri and Acharya.

Many clients from USA, UK, South America, Germany, New Zealand and Australia visit the yagya center and stay in the guest cottage on the premises. They meditate with the pandits and participate in their own yagyas. These guests are provided free accommodation and pure vegetarian food by the Vedic Life Foundation. Anyone who may travel to India is welcome to visit the yagya center. Clients are afforded free accomodations and meals for a few days.

Also, the Vedic Life Foundation organizes yoga and meditation courses for our foreign guests. Clients can learn yogic exercises (asanas) and meditaion techniques with expert teachers. Clients may study Vedic Astrology and learn Vedic mantras like the Gayatri and Mahamrityunjaya mantras at the Foundation.

There are several other yagya/yagna services on the internet which give out these mantras. They even provide recordings of the sounds of the mantra being chanted. We avoid this as the slightest mispronounciation by the inexperienced sadhana/seeker can lead to negative results from the chanting. Mantras are best taught in person by a qualified guru or teacher so that the pronunciation is as perfect as can be from the beginning.

The Pandits of the Vedic Life Foundation

This image was taken in early 2005 in front of the new Homa site with its traditional thatched roof. These dedicated gentlemen are highly trained Brahmins, able to maintain focus on a mantra all day long.

This next image was taken in January, 2008. One hundred and fifty pandits of the Vedic Life Foundation pose on the lawn next to the flower garden.

Most of them were trained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his meditation movement. They trained about 10,000 Pandits. They were trained starting from the age of 5 years old. This is the normal tradition for the training of a Pandit. In 1991, the yagya program which employed these men contracted and most of them were sent home. They had been taught to chant mantras but not to administer their own temples.

Applicants to the Vedic Life Foundation staff of Pandits are reviewed by a board of senior Pandits. New Pandits currently being hired are solely from this elite group of meditation practicing Brahmins trained in the 80's. Peer review maintains an extremely high level of competence in the Temple.
