Learn Vedic Chanting

from a living South Indian lineage

Learn to chant important Vedic texts

with consistent, long-term study.

The vedas are the world’s oldest spiritual literature. They are preserved and handed down from teacher to disciple over millennia through śruti parampara, or oral tradition. Strict rules of recitation are observed, requiring complete concentration during the practice. The Vedic hymns were revealed to the great sages of ancient India in deep meditative states. The mantras of the Vedas hold symbolism which through recitation, study and meditation, reveal themselves to the practitioner, resulting in personal growth. Vedic chanting has been declared by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity.

Veda Studies follows the tradition’s strict rigour as taught by pundits in South India, and makes these teachings online and accessible to all committed seekers around the world. Whatever your knowledge level, cultural background, or previous experience with chanting, Veda Studies offers you a clear learning path with step-by-step guidance and multiple learning resources.

Learn Vedic Chanting From Home

Study Veda chanting online as if you were there

Besides the chanting lessons directly with the teacher, you can listen and watch recordings from the live Veda classes we teach weekly in Brussels.

This way, you can practice your Veda chanting as if you were with us and observe some best practices and how to overcome common mistakes made by students.

Step-by-step teaching

All our training is highly structured and taught step-by-step so that learning is effective and you can monitor your progress easily. For example, a hymn that takes about 3 minutes to recite has been broken down into 5 lessons – each with multiple learning resources.

Audio, video and text materials

Each course comes with video introductions and explanations, audio lessons for chanting and downloadable text for meaning so that you can learn using the medium that works best for you.

Assignment and feedback system

An important element of studying chanting is to receive feedback. To maintain the rigor of the study you can submit a recording and receive comprehensive feedback so that you can keep improving your practice.

Learn correct pronunciation with the Veda Studies System

Over the years, we developed our own method for accurate understanding of Vedic phonetics. This will help you best understand the sounds in the way they are transmitted in the oral tradition by Vedic pundits.
