Keynote Address by His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda

The spiritual founder of Self Enquiry Life Fellowship and head of the Hansavedas Mission will offer an inspirational Keynote Address. He will present how the Nonprofit is executing various aspects of the Sanskrit-based curriculum and is building a legacy of an authentic Sanskrit heritage in the West. Video footage from our sister institution in India will be shown to share how a Vedic chanting class of village children matures into Indian classical music recording of the highest standard.

His Holiness is an ordained Himalayan Vedic monk, who hails from unbroken lineages of the combined heritage of rishi sages and nath meditation adepts. He is among the very few available outside of India who has been awarded the degree of Mahāmahopādhyāy (DLitt et Phil) by the university system in India, due to his interpretation of Sanskrit literature.
