The ancient Vedic order is a vast spiritual heritage rich with the esoteric sciences of prayer, meditation and monasticism. It is our goal to preserve the nonsectarian teachings of the authentic Vedic tradition, including that of the mystical Himalayan yoga lineages and to research the sacred Sanskrit scriptures, texts and manuscripts. We wish to create awareness through cultural exchange, introducing ayurvedic principles, Vedic arts, rituals, ceremonies and music to the Western culture while being a model of sustainability, living in harmony with nature.

I am really blessed to come to know about Self Enquiry Life Fellowship organization and be part of it. I had the opportunity to participate in the free Hansayogin workshop provided by Swamiji himself and every individual was taken care with so much of love and care that the joy is there for ever. In spite of a huge crowd, everyone felt like a one on one teaching with so much of attention given to individuals to follow the methods correctly. This organization is truly one of the kind with emphasis on way of life, preserving the nature and leading a meaningful, joyful healthy life.

I have had a very good experience with SELF. I attended about five to seven of their events in the Chicago area in the fall of 2015 and I had a very positive experience from attending them. I am very satisfied with the content of the lectures and the Yoga and Pranayama exercises. I look forward to seeing more such events organized in the Chicago area and benefiting from the attendance. I wish Self Enquiry Life Fellowship much success going forward.

Self Enquiry Life Fellowship is very noble in teachings, and professional in service. For those who are genuinely seeking purity in body and mind, and better understanding of the purpose of their life, it is highly recommended to listen to the discourses of His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda Giri (a rare Guru) . I am fortunate to have found Self Enquiry Life Fellowship about a couple of years ago, and now I am a volunteer. I sincerely thank SELF for helping change my life for the better.

Self Enquiry Life Fellowship works very hard to serve the community in exactly the way they state. I have seen first hand how dedicated everyone involved is to the mission of the organization, which is to disseminate spiritual wisdom and knowledge in an authentic manner that preserves the essence of its heritage. Anyone who is interested in their events is welcomed to participate, regardless of their financial circumstances, something I know firsthand as a student with limited income. I felt so welcomed by them, and am amazed at how much love is put into every detail of what they do!

The Self Enquiry Fellowship held some of the very best events I have been to in a very long time. And, even better, they were absolutely free to the public. Every person that I encountered in the organization was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and caring. What a great experience.

This Non-Profit is devoted towards dissemination of traditional knowledge that predates the modern era. It focuses on quality and understanding of the knowledge by contextualizing techniques with the thought process behind the techniques. In the world where small snippets of experiences/knowledge/facts/news are growing in digital media at a rapid pace, CONTEXT, INTEGRATION,AUTHENTICITY are at a premium and this Non-Profit singularly focuses on that. Wellness, Spiritual realization and Self-examination had been the focus of the Orient and the Himalayan region has been both the source and a pristine repository of the same. By making that knowledge available with purity , this non-profit provides us tools to deal with modernity in a sustainable way....

SELF teachings are a sublime combination of authentic Vedic insights and mindful living. As a young parent and family it gives us the right foundation and environment in which to raise children. Their teachings have inspired us to look at every aspect of our modern day life and make the necessary changes so we are more deeply connected with nature and our environment. The teachings have helped us in setting up a framework for nutrition and how to motivate children towards greater learning and focus. I sincerely believe we are a more sensitive and vibrant family because of our association with SELF.

The Self Enquiry Life Fellowship provides a loving nonjudgemental environment that facilitates spiritual growth. The meditation and talks faciltate introspection about the purpose of human existence. Hopefully you will like the transformation you see in people around you - you will likely hanker less for materialistic possessions and care deeply about the planet.
The annual retreat is a great way to charge your arteries and renew your committment to your new lifestyle. Very practical and useful for families as it covers many aspects of life from raising a family, the appropriate diet, mental and physical fittness and balancing work and spirituality.

I had the Godsend opportunity to attend a Self Enquiry Life Fellowship program in july 2015 ,conducted under the able guidance of Himalayan Monk, Swami Vidyadhishananda. The highlight was exposure to Kriyayoga lineage and meditation practices applicable to house holders. The experience of collective chanting, singing, music and blessing of participants individually by Guruji was indeed unique. The introduction to Vedic knowledge strengthens the belief that man is more than the visible physical self and encourages a journey on this noble path of self discovery.
