Currently, more than 300 students have participated.

2. Vaastu

Vastu is a wing of the Indian arts that deals with proper house construction. For all householders there is a need of a right house and in a location suitable for material enjoyment and yogic experience. This is possible if the householder has a basic knowledge of the earth’s properties and the impact of structural variations in architecture. Students will first focus on the properties of the land, directions, slopes, and will also learn the beneficial signs of residing in certain areas. Later students will learn how to design a proper home including the orientation of each room, placement of doors and windows, ideal measurements and how to determine the correct day and month of the lunar calendar to inaugurate projects. This knowledge will help one to build a house in which internal and external wellbeing will be experienced.

3. Yoga

Today, the most attractive ancient science in the whole world is yoga. It is the duty of every individual to understand at least the basics of yoga. In order to impart this fundamental knowledge, the Institute has conducted classes to introduce yogic limbs, such as asana, pranayama, shatkarma, etc. So far, hundreds of students have benefited from these courses.
