Preservation of Adi Sankara Nilayam

Adi Sankara Nilayam is privileged to be the very birthplace of Adi Sankaracharya. The 1200 year old property must be preserved for generations to come for it embodies the very spirit of Vedanta.


A lot of what CIF does is very research intensive. This is exactly in line with Pujya Gurudev’s vision, that CIF shall create an environment for purposeful research and knowledge discovery. General donations are a one-time gift made at any time. It shows your generosity and support for the work accomplished by Chinmaya International Foundation. By making a general donation, you contribute to Gurudev's lofty vision and tireless service embracing the whole world. CIF is the confluence of Gurudev's Jnana, Bhakti, and Karma. The Jnana of Gurudev is seen through CIF's research activities, Bhakti through the temples which CIF tirelessly preserves, and Karma through the various lectures, seminars, workshops, camps, and programs it holds. CIF will continue to strive, to excel and to serve, inspired by Gurudev's vision and tireless service embracing the whole world.
