Vedas and Vedic culture: what you won't learn at schools

If you want to "be someone", if you want to be viewed as doing something valuable for society, you must have an education and a job. In school we can learn many things but unfortunately not the important, existential ones. These are elaborated on in Vedas, a sort of manuals how to use this world, how to live in it as well as how to transcend it. Obviously, they should be available to everyone.
"Veda" is Sanskrit word for "knowledge". Sanskrit was the language of ancient Vedic civilization. Vedic culture, based on Vedic scriptures (sastras) called Vedas, flourished all over the ancient world with center in India, formerly known as Bharata-varsa. See the section Connections for more.
Vedas are the most ancient literary works on Earth, at the same time with the profoundest and widest scope. They cover all fields of knowledge, material and spiritual. The real treasures of the East weren't jewels, spices or exotic perfumes but the amazing treasure house of sacred and universal knowledge. This knowledge, increasingly validated by modern science, is gradually being embraced by leading corporations, professionals and leaders around the world. Our recent scientific and technological efforts can only to some extent approach the ancient Vedic material advancement while the Vedic spirituality is much more elevated than anything we can find in the West.
VEDA is one-of-its-kind resource related to the Vedas and Vedic culture. Although there are many different encyclopedias, until 2001 there has been no encyclopedia focused on Vedic culture available to the wide public (if we don't take into account several dictionaries and encyclopedias published in India and used mainly by scholars). This, together with recent increase of interest in Eastern philosophy, ancient civilizations, alternative paradigms and a lack of comprehensive online resources, inspired the creation of this site. Its four main sections, Bhakti-yoga, Connections, Vedic Encyclopedia and Vedic Library (see the upper left links), contain over 500 articles and downloadable files explaining all kinds of information related to Vedic philosophy and culture. There are also Links to many other related resources and books to buy through Amazon. The affiliate payments go to Sastra Dana USA, the program of subsidized distribution of Srila Prabhupada's books.
Because Vedas are vast and variegated, VEDA specifically focuses on Gaudiya Vaishnava Vedanta, the cream of Vedic philosophy, expounded by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, avatar of this Kali-yuga, and brought to the West by its foremost recent exponent Shri Shrimad A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. You can find more details about this site and its development in About VEDA.
We'll be glad if you put a link on your personal site, blog or social profile and spread the word. With topically relevant sites we are ready to exchange links. Suggestions, corrections, donations, etc. are most welcome - please contact us.

At your service since 2001.
