How We Came to Be

It so happened that once a visiting professor gave some material on Hinduism to His Divinity Swami Prakashanand Saraswati when he was in Barsana Dham, USA. He casually glanced through it and was surprised to see that every aspect of Hinduism was being reproached. He called one of his devotees (a professor in New Delhi) who sent a number of books which are prescribed for post graduate study in Hinduism. They were all published by renowned publishers and written by the renowned scholars and professors of the universities of India.

Shree Swamiji says, “I read those books and I was in tears. I couldn’t believe my eyes that Bhartiya culture was being so badly derogated and misrepresented by the Indian scholars.
He was shocked to find what was still being taught in the schools and colleges of India even after more than 56 years of Independence. He further explored and discovered that the libraries of India and the whole world are flooded with such derogatory writings of western and Indian scholars. Originally these derogatory books were the outcome of English diplomacy that tried to degrade Hindu culture by all means according to their well planned scheme. In this way an enormous amount of such books were written during those days. Later on the same trend was adopted by the Hindu writers.
His Divinity Swami Prakashanand Saraswati
Shree Swamiji’s thought to do something to save India’s Vedic heritage and re-establish its Divine glory. Thus, The Vedic Foundation was established in May, 2003 to disseminate authentic knowledge about Hinduism, through its literature, educational programs and online resources.
