Born out of a unique vision of the Chief Patron Vedmoorti Taponishtha Pt. Sriram Sharma Acharya, the University is an educational institution, which could mold its students into noble and enlightened human beings: selfless, warm-hearted, compassionate and kind individuals. Under the flagship of the mother institution Shantikunj as a part of Shri Ved Mata Gayatri Trust activities, a man-making spiritual academy & Head Quarter of All World Gayatri Pariwar, the foundation of the University was laid down in 1999. The vision became a reality in the month of April 2002, when the University was duly recognized by the University Grants Commission. Unlike most, it caters to all aspects of its students’ lives—academic as well as cultural, spiritual, and social.
Along with an excellent domain focused approach, sectoral excellence and a widely knitted outreach connect, we try to build individuals with Spirituality as their locus of control and help them excel as holistic people through our meticulously designed curriculums and dedicated faculty. The lush green 84 acres campus located at the lap of Great Himalayas and the bank of river Ganga, offers a truly world class spiritual ambience for developing talent of very highest caliber.
Within a short span of time since its inception in 2002, the University has taken rapid strides towards achieving its goals and has become a leader in imparting Contemporary Education (Shiksha) with Spiritual Wisdom (Vidya).
