In an ambience of wilderness, at the foothills of Marudhamalai, (abode of Lord Murugan)embraced by mountains on three sides – as though protectively — away from the hustle and bustle of Coimbatore city, yet in the city, is located the serene cradle of ancient wisdom.
Poojya Swami Dayananda Saraswati called this establishment Arshavidyalaya, an Alaya (आलय), a place where this teaching is available today for the seeker.
The word Arshavidyalaya is composed of three words – Arsha, Vidya and Alaya (आर्ष,विद्या,आलय). Arsha comes from the word Rishi, (ऋषि)meaning Seer, (मन्त्रदृष्टा) — one who has been able to understand the reality of the Universe, of the Self and of Isvara through the verses (मन्त्राः) of the vedas. This understanding, this knowledge (विद्या) coming down from the Rishis over thousands of years in the teaching lineage, is called Arshavidya.
Arshavidyalaya was inaugurated in 2015 by Swami Sakshatkritananda, with the blessings of Poojya Swami Dayananda Saraswati for the traditional teaching of advaita Vedanta, puja and prayers, Sanskrit, Vedic chanting and, exposing children to the wealth they have been born into.
