Centre for Sanskrit Vedic Studies

Commenced in 1997, the Centre for Vedic Studies aims at the promotion and preservation of traditional knowledge. The centre accounts to an interdisciplinary nature and conducts studies comprising Vedic Studies, other Sanskrit studies as well as Social Sciences. The Centre has successfully completed the research project of the audio / video documentation of the Kerala style chanting of Jaiminiya Samaveda. Since there are only three scholars alive in Kerala who could chant this, the Centre took upon itself the task of recording the Keraliya Jaiminiya Samaveda chanting before its extinction. Presently the Centre offers M.A. program in Vedic Studies. The Centre also organizes many short-term courses, public lectures, national seminars as well as workshops for the benefit of students.
