Self Enquiry Life Fellowship is a nonprofit organization with worldwide outreach guided by the monastic wisdom of the Hansavedas Mission. The Nonprofit, with its headquarters in California, preserves indigenous knowledge from the Sanskrit heritage, including: extant literature on spiritual philosophy that is meaningful to modern inquiry; spiritual practices of Vedic antiquity that bring about peace in our communities through mindful participation; Himalayan yoga-vinyāsa and Ayurveda that promote wellness and mindfulness in daily living; and Himalayan meditation techniques of unbroken lineages which bring about mental clarity and compassion through self-empowerment, ultimately guiding the meditator to liberation.

The organization is enriched with extraordinary guidance from several Vedic monks of ancient monastic orders. It is rare for reclusive Himalayan monks, who have penanced in Himalaya, to become available to seekers or devotees and serve by disseminating precious streams of knowledge. His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda, who is one such ordained Vedic monk of the Giri monastic order, is the spiritual head of the Hansavedas Mission and the spiritual founder of the Nonprofit.

We are committed to the highest level of ethics and have earned the Guidestar Platinum Seal of Transparency. See our profile: We have also been honoured as a Top-Rated Nonprofit for several years in a row on
