The Thanthra Vidya Peedham – A Unique institution

Inherited from great sages, the Kerala Thanthrasasthra was practiced and passed through generations of devout Acharyas. When scholars in the Sasthra became scarce due to deterioration in spiritual and scholarly standards of later generations, Thanthra Vidya Peedham was started to revive and sustain this branch of the ancient body of knowledge.

The vidyapeedham was founded in 1972 by the late Madhavji, a leader of social and spiritual renaissance in Kerala. The institution started functioning with the active cooperate of renowned Acharyas and blessings of Sri Sri Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peedham.
