Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati Veda Vidya Pitha

Knowledge has no precincts. It is a sea with infinite depths and its waves can liberate the soul. And take one beyond the ordinary. Vedic literature has been a pearl in the ocean of knowledge, as the Vedas have long been acknowledged as the repositories of all religious and secular duties. It is an intellectual understanding of the nature and blossoming of the human life.

SIES has always been conscious of the fact that there is a need to promote, perpetuate and propagate our ancient culture in tune with current needs. The SIES Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati Veda Vidya Pitha is one of the major institutions in the country combining modern education with vedic studies. The vedic school named after the Paramacharya of Kanchi, the 68th Sankaracharya of the venerated Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam was set up at the sprawling campus of the Society at Nerul, Navi Mumbai at a cost ofRs.35 million. The Vidya Pitha enrolls students at an early age of 5 and takes them over a twelve year period through 10+2+3 education system as well as complete study of the Vedas. The entire boarding and lodging is free. The students are admitted to the State Bank of India Officers Public School (SBOA). This initiative of providing the students with a strong bond with the Indian roots is bearing fruits. The early results are outstanding and the students are able to cope with both the systems of study. The Society is confident that its experiment of dual system of study would transcend the mundane education system and combat all materialistic barriers.
