VEDIC MASTERS PROGRAM

We at the American Institute of Vedic Studies have offered four globally respected Vedic certification courses over the last forty years,  sharing Vedic knowledge worldwide. Now we are offering greater certification options for our students.

Many of our students have taken more than one of our four online courses, which relate to interconnected aspects of Vedic knowledge. We have now decided to honor these students with greater certifications, particularly those who have taken or wish to take all four of our certification courses.

If you as our student have already completed one or more of our courses, you can already be given credits toward our advanced certifications.

In addition we are encouraging new students to take more than one course in order to gain a more complete Vedic Education.

The American Institute of Vedic Studies is an online educational center providing a broad range of courses, resources and publications for an international audience. It focuses on Vedic knowledge systems of Ayurveda, Yoga-Vedanta and Vedic astrology, along with the background system of Hinduism or ‘Sanatana Dharma’. It emphasizes bringing together the greater Yoga tradition in an integral manner with regard to its Vedic origins.
