With global exposure and rooted in the parampara, Adinarayanan and Smrithi bring the essence of their tapasya, swadhaya and shraddha into all their program offerings.

Anaadi Foundation's Yatras and Mahabharata programs attract participants from all over the world. Since April 2020, Anaadi Foundation has reached out to more than 3000 people through their online offerings on Mahabharata, Yoga, Sustainability and Kathalaya.
For each of the Dharmic works, a chapter by chapter retelling will be offered. This will be interleaved with discussions drawing from modern science and thought process including Governance, Economics, Social Sciences, Astronomy, Health sciences etc. There will be opportunity for participants to interact with the teachers during the session and through the course platform as well.
