Description

Sringeri Vidya Bharati Foundation (SVBF) Canada was established as a non-profit, charitable organization to propagate Sanathana Dharma in communities across Canada . SVBF Canada is an overseas affiliate of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri ,India and will promote teachings of Adi Shankara. SVBF Canada will also organize cultural programs for the community and encourage scholars to undertake research studies in the areas of interest to the community. Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya (788-820 A.D.) established Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham in Sringeri early ninth century. The organization has produced over centuries, a galaxy of Acharyas in an unbroken chain of guru–shishya tradition, right from Adi Shankara to the present Acharya of Sharada Peetham, Sringeri. His Holiness Jagadaguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal is the 36 th Acharya in the chain of guru–shishya tradition. He ascended to the throne of transcendental wisdom on October 19, 1989. No Hindu institution has survived for 12 centuries with such continuous and ever increasing splendor as the Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri, whose followers run into millions. “Vidya” is a Sanskrit word meaning learning. While spiritual education and evolution of humanity is the highest goal, as is the case with any sacred institution, Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri has inspired people for more than 1200 years to pursue academic and artistic excellence. The organization runs numerous schools as well as engineering colleges and management institutions throughout India. Members and followers of the organization are noted for reaching the highest levels of achievement in academic, artistic, business and government enterprises. SVBF Canada aims to propagate universal values of higher learning and personal development for communities across Canada based on the age old Indian traditions. It is apt to recognize that the name “Sringeri Vidya Bharati Foundation” was chosen to bring the blessings of the current 36th Acharya His Holiness Jagadaguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal and the previous 35 th Acharya His Holiness Jagadaguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Abhinava Vidya Tirtha Mahaswamigal. SVBF Canada will work closely with SVBF USA, another overseas affiliate of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri. SVBF USA was established in Pennsylvania, USA to propagate the same teachings and principles in the United States. The opportunity to promote the rich Indian culture and traditions is immense. SVBF Canada was founded in 2005 and it acquired the existing temple at 80 Brydon Drive, Etobicoke, Toronto. It also acquired the adjacent building, which is approximately 20,000 square feet. The Sringeri Community Centre was inaugurated on 13 th December, 2008 and the newly renovated temple is set to be inaugurated in June, 2010. The entire project is estimated to cost $10 million and will consist of a magnificent Sharada temple, Community Centre and Adi Shankara museum. SVBF Canada sincerely hopes to receive the participation of the GTA community in this endeavour to propagate our rich tradition. Please come and join us with your friends and families on the auspicious occasion of the opening of Sharada temple.
