ISKCON’s shrine of Vedic knowledge
The Vedas are the most senior available literature of India that teaches us the values of life. The four Vedas – Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda, and Atharva Veda – comprise teachings that will help us lead a sustained and satisfying life.
Being the oldest layer of Indian literature in Sanskrit and consisting of the oldest Hindu scriptures, the Vedas lay down the path leading one towards intelligent and happy life.
At ISKCON, we have created a library that houses various literary texts on the Vedas, including these books’ teachings. We believe that going back to our roots and learning what the sages and gurus of the Vedic ages have left for us is an enlightening way of leading our life.
We, at Iskcon, have initiated a concept of Vedic Library that stretches 1800 sq ft in area. It is an ample space for many students to learn the real values of life with peace.
Benefits of learning from the Vedas
In Mahabharata, we get to know that Lord Brahma created the Vedas. The Vedas are believed to be on a higher pedestal, meaning it is considered godly or out worldly.
Learning from the Vedas gives us a more in-depth insight into life, which helps us attain wisdom later. The education that we receive from this can provide salvation to the soul.
Resources available in ISKCON’s Vedic Library
Our Vedic Library caters to every person’s needs to help everyone read, understand, and gain Vedic knowledge in a simple, efficient manner.
We house all the necessary books required to acquire Vedic education and provide the most authentic knowledge. We have the Srimad Bhagwatam, which was spoken thousands of years ago by Sri Sukdeva Goswami when King Parkshit was cursed to die in mere seven days.
We also have the essence of all Vedic scriptures, the Srimad Bhagwat Gita, which the Supreme Lord Krishna himself spoke about 5000 years ago on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
Many other Divine scriptures like Upanishads and the Puranas will help you make your human life successful by reading and understanding them.
The Vedic Library also houses books for children of all age groups. Books with pictures and morals are available for the kids to enjoy. There are also books on daily life problems, professional problems, parenting, and so on.
How can you help?
You can help by visiting and bringing others to our library. We were hoping you could utilize the well-curated resources we offer and involve yourself with our library activities.
The other way of helping us is by making small donations to expand our resources and knowledge on the Vedic texts. It will also help us reach out to more people looking for the truth and life’s wisdom.
Even your most minor contribution will make a big ripple in the lives of many.
