Who We Are?

Arsha Seva Kendram

Arsha Seva Kendram is a non-profit organization founded to impart the teaching and attitude of Seva as given to us by our Rishis. The primary purpose of Arsha Seva Kendram is to teach Vedanta and Sanskrit, both being at the core of what is commonly called “Indian Culture”. Our Vedanta teachers have undergone rigorous studies under H. H. Swami Dayananda Saraswati. We teach the Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and numerous other Vedanta texts backed by solid knowledge of Sanskrit.

The lotus represents purity and spirituality. The lotus, which is yet to bloom, is an allusion to the hidden potential within all humans that can be harnessed only through the right education.

Books represent knowledge. Here, the book is open, representing the active acquisition of knowledge.

The lamp is a composite shape, formed by the combination of the lotus and the book. The lighting of a lamp in Sanaatana Dharma represents the movement towards knowledge, represented by the light.

Here, the designer focused on an asymmetric design, drawing inspiration from Vedic Scriptures particularly when choosing various design elements.
