The weekly online course led by Sri Jijith Nadumuri Ravi, a distinguished academic, writer, and former ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) space scientist will provide an in-depth exploration of the historical and geographical aspects of Rigveda and the Vedic people. Students will have the opportunity to delve into the ancient knowledge of Vedic civilization and culture, uncovering many unanswered questions about the Vedic worldview.


Sri Jijith Nadumuri Ravi, Former Scientist, ISRO “Most of the impressions about Rigveda are shaped by secondary information, and they seldom delve deep into the Rigvedic verses. This is a geographical journey into Rigveda with the Rigvedic rivers as our primary guides.”


We are excited to introduce this unique course on Rigvedic Geography, which offers a rare opportunity for learners to understand the historical and geographical context of Rigveda. Through this course, we aim to promote and preserve India’s rich cultural heritage while making education accessible to learners worldwide.” said Dr. P.
