Arsha Vidya Center has been formed to introduce, promote and establish study of Vedanta for students and seekers in the San Francisco Bay Area in a traditional way through an unbroken sampradaya, that began with Lord Dakshinamurti, uplifted and maintained by Veda Vyasa and Adi Sankara, now handed directly to us by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati.

Shri Vijay Kapoor, a disciple of Pujya Swami Dayananda, established the Arsha Vidya (Knowledge of the Rishis) Center

This is the center for traditional teaching of Vedanta, Bhagavad Gita, Meditation, Sanskrit and Vedic Chanting in 2001.  All his lectures are in English, and are free of charge.  Various Arsha Vidya Swamis continue to visit the Bay Area and bless us with in-person teachings.
