Stiftung zur Förderung 
des Vedischen Weltkulturerbes

Foundation for the Promotion of Vedic Cultural Heritage

Dear Friends of Vedic Culture,

Since 1992 we have been operating our Maharishi Ayurvedic Health Center in Bad Ems, Germany, and thousands of patients have experienced the great benefits of this most ancient system of Health Care – Ayurveda. This profound and timeless knowledge of Ayurveda comes from Veda and Vedic Literature which has been preserved in the ancient Vedic cultures of India and Nepal. We are therefore honored and privileged to be able to contribute to the protection, preservation, and dissemination of this precious cultural heritage through the German Foundation, Stiftung zur Förderung des Vedischen Weltkulturerbes.

In deep appreciation for the Vedic culture, we have established this foundation as a platform to provide financial means to allow the custodians of this Knowledge, the Vedic Pandits, to have proper schools and facilities that will enable them to continue their precious training and duties.

The Foundation, Stiftung zur Förderung des Vedischen Weltkulturerbes, has been recognized by the German Finance Department as a charitable Foundation according to Paragraph 51 ff. AO and is able to provide tax-deductible receipts for donations. Close cooperation with a foundation set up specifically for this purpose in Nepal ensures transparency of the funds used.

“In 2011, on the occasion of a stay in Nepal, I was invited to attend the Vedic recitations by the Pandits in the Pashupatinath Temple. This experience has touched me deeply and inspired me to establish, together with friends, a charitable organization in Germany to provide a much-needed contribution to the preservation and promotion of this unique cultural heritage. I am convinced that the Vedic recitations create a powerful influence of peace and harmony not only for Nepal, but for the whole world.”
