India's timeless spiritual culture has its basis in the Vedas - its rich heritage of spiritual traditions is carrying and spreading the essence of India’s ancient wisdom to the world.
The Vedic tradition to gain knowledge through exploration of consciousness was developed by the great Rishis
(Seers)and sages of India, who first cognized and expressed this knowledge passing it on over thousands of years in what is now the oldest, continuous tradition of knowledge in existence.
The idea for Maitreyi was conceived by a group of likeminded individuals who share a combined vision to create a place with an atmosphere highly conducive for spiritual growth and dissemination of Vedic knowledge. In the realization of the Vedic Village we - as the promoters of Maitreyi, coming from different regions of India, from the North and from the South - have been supported by a group of close friends from Europe. The Vedic saying "VasudhaivaKutumbakam" - the world is one family - expresses our hope that all of you - who will be visiting and staying at the Vedic Village - will become part of Maitreyi's family.
The truth of Vedic wisdom is by its very nature independent of time and can therefore never be completely lost: India has seen many times its revival and we feel fortunate to live at a time when the whole world is witnessing the renaissance of Vedic wisdom. Our pranams go to the Vedic Tradition of Masters, to all family traditions, scholars and acharyas of the various Vedic disciplines and especially to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who with his Vedic Science has inspired and initiated the worldwide revival of Vedic knowledge.
