The work of the Vedanta Institute is inspired by Swami Parthasarathy, the internationally eminent philosopher widely regarded as the greatest living exponent of Vedanta. Over the past fifty years, Parthasarathy’s outstanding contribution to humanity has been the translation of subtle philosophical themes into practical techniques of living. The institute is dedicated to the study, research and dissemination of Vedanta through public lectures, classes, retreats, youth programmes and corporate workshops. Graduates are based in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town to facilitate education in Vedanta.
The Vuka Institute is a workshop and retreat centre that marries the inspirations of Mind to the demands of Matter in an African context. Rooted in a sacred valley in the Maluti foothills, in a place that’s been revered by healers and seers for millennia, the institute looks beyond dogma to where indigenous wisdom and progressive science meet. Our purpose is to explore and understand what it means to be human, and to seek alternative solutions to our shared environmental, economic and social crises.
The institute is located at Eagle Valley Farm in the Eastern Free State, on the R26 between Ficksburg and Fouriesburg.28°43'17.3"S
