Please Help the Vedic Students
According to the Vedic philosophy of Karma (action), whatever good or bad karma we do, will yield a similar result in our present life and future births to come.
Any good, prosperity or adverse things we come across in our life is the result of our own past actions or karma.
Therefore, please Sponsor a Vedic student and invest for your future karma. By sponsoring a student, you help one individual to learn and live well, and you also help preserve the most revered and upheld “Vedas.”
According to the most famous Sanskrit saying “Vedo Rakshati Rakshitah,” one who helps save Vedas, will be saved too (from calamities).
