TIRUMALA, AUGUST 27: “Vedas are the basis of Hindu Sanatana Dharma and have a universal outlook, embracing all that is noble and sacred and with this core principle our country will soon lead the world to lead a pious life”, said TTD Trust Board Chief Dr Ch Krishnamurthy.

While addressing the Vedic Students in Dharmagiri Veda Vignanna Peetham in Tirumala on the occasion of 123rd Convocation Ceremony of the ancient vedic institute run by TTD on Thursday, the Chairman of TTD Trust Board said, “Vedas are the valuable treasure house of universal knowledge which emphasised that man will be truly human only when he lives up to human values and practises the good life. They have proclaimed the concept of oneness and taught to face joy and sorrow with equal serenity”, he maintained.

Later he called up on the vedic students to take up the noble mission of leading the world on righteous path preaching the knowledge embedded in Vedas. “Today I have learnt from the authorities that over 650 students are undergoing vedic studies in this great institute in the abode of Lord Venkateswara. I am sure that this figure develops ten times in future and we are ready to offer you all sort of help to encourage and spread vedic knowledge. I urge the outgoing students to keep up the reputation of the institute across the world by disseminating the vedic knowledge across the globe’, he added.

Earlier the Principal of the institution Sri Kuppa Venkata Siva Subrahmanya Avadhani briefed the Chairman the history of the 131 year old great institution, about the 17 departments currently available in the Peetham, students and faculty details, about the stipend and other benefits given to the successful pass outs etc.

Later the Chairman distributed certificates and medallions to 68 students who have passed out of the institute after the completion of 12year long Vedic and 8year long Agamic studies.
