Unveiling the Origins: A Journey of Knowledge and Spirituality

The fascinating story begins with the profound influence of their father, Shri J.B. Shastry, on the lives of Acharya Suryanarayan and Acharya Srinivas. Guided by his wisdom, the two brothers embarked on a transformative journey early in their lives. Shri J.B. Sastry, a pragmatic individual, recognized the value of firsthand experience and believed it was essential for his children to immerse themselves in the teachings of great gurus, exploring the depths of Sanatana Dharma.

To manifest this vision, he enrolled Acharya Suryanarayan & Acharya Srinivas in a gurukulam (veda paathshaala) situated in the serene Anantavaram village near Tenali, Andhrapradesh. Under the tutelage of B. Sri Vishnubhatla Srikrishna Ghapathi, this transition from an English medium school in Hyderabad to a gurukulam presented them with a unique opportunity. Initially unfamiliar, they wholeheartedly embraced the rigorous routine, emphasizing discipline and responsibility. Their days commenced at the break of dawn, as early as 4:30 AM, and extended until 8:30 PM, filled with veda memorization, anushthana practices, and integration with the village's residents. Alongside their veda adhyayanam, they actively participated in various responsibilities, such as gathering flowers for puja, maintaining the cleanliness of the pathashala, and organizing cultural events like Ganesha Chaturthi. This meticulously designed routine fostered their personal growth, honing their lifestyle management skills and enhancing efficiency. Although their time in the gurukulam was interrupted due to illness after studying some aspects of Krishna Yajurveda Samhita, their spiritual expedition was far from over.

Undeterred, their parents took a bold step by enrolling them in Acharya Khandavalli Lakshmiranjanam Andhra Prachya Kalashala, a Telugu oriental college affiliated with Osmania University, Hyderabad. This strategic decision ensured a seamless continuation of the profound samskara they acquired during their gurukula education. At this esteemed institution, they delved deep into our rich cultural heritage, guided by a meticulously crafted Telugu language curriculum. Simultaneously, they also pursued their education at the English & Foreign Languages University in Tarnaka, Hyderabad, exposing themselves to a diverse array of students hailing from different cultural backgrounds.

Motivated by their exposure to modern education, they yearned to delve further into the realms of shastras. Fortunately, fate brought them into the presence of Brahma Sri Ambadipudi Radheshyama Sharma in Tirupathi, an extraordinary teacher in search of ardent students eager to explore the depths of shastras. This serendipitous encounter prompted them to make the courageous decision of discontinuing their Bachelor's program, dedicating themselves to formal Gurukula Adhyayanam of Tarka Shastra under the guidance of their newfound Guruji in Kancheepuram. Immersed in this profound learning experience, they revisited the foundational teachings acquired in their earlier gurukula years and swiftly completed their study of Tarka Shastra.

Their stay in Kancheepuram became a transformative chapter in their lives. As they diligently pursued their studies and fulfilled their daily responsibilities, they had the opportunity to interact with eminent personalities associated with Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt. Attending the revered tradition of 'Guruvara Sadas'

Emerging in the era of the internet, they possessed the expertise to navigate modern technology as it had been an integral part of their educational journey. Recognizing its potential as a tool for acquiring and sharing knowledge, they were motivated to make their wisdom accessible to future generations who showed a keen interest in the Indian Knowledge System. Their aspiration was to become a vital component of this remarkable virtual realm of intellectual pursuit. Hence, the establishment of this foundation stands as a testament to their unwavering determination, relentless drive, and resolute willpower.
