‘Let friendship be the religion’

“ The Flame of one candle can light thousands more ”

Life Changing Centres

Bihar, the land of Bhagwan Mahavir and Lord Buddha, is where Veerayatan initiated its work in 1973. Despite many struggles, Veerayatan Bihar has now grown into a beautiful centre providing eye-care and education amongst many other activities.

The work of Veerayatan started in Kutch after the terrible earthquake of 2001, which affected the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people. With the blessings and vision of Pujya Tai Ma, Veerayatan has created a revolution in the educational field in Kutch.


Recognising the importance of working towards the upliftment of humanity in the pious land of Palitana, the city of hills and temples, Veerayatan has set up the Palitana Centre focussing on education, health and spiritual upliftment.                                   

Veerayatan has created beautiful schools providing good quality holistic education to the disadvantaged children in Rajasthan.

Veerayatan International

Veerayatan has centres worldwide, inspiring thousands of people to make a difference in their own localities and beyond, and by doing so contributing enormously to uplifting humanity.
