There are regular classes at the Ashram on Upanishads, Sanskrit, Bhagavad Gita and Shat Darshananas (six schools of Indian philosophy) like Sankhya, Mimamsa etc. and others conducted by the resident Acharyas. These sessions start at 7am and go on till 5pm with breaks in between. Essentially there are around 5-6 hours of classes which are attended by the resident students as well as seekers coming from other Ashrams and places.
The teachings are carried out in the traditional method and the Acharyas are available outside of class timings to take queries from the students and guide them in the best possible manner.
The day starts with Bhashya Paranayam and ends with evening Arati at the Shankara Hall.
Vidyashankari: This is an educational/medical aid project started by the Peeth in the aftermath of 2013 floods. After the floods the Peeth trust organised relief material for the flood affected families and Sadhus. Since the education of the children residing in the area was affected, the trust decided to help them by sponsoring their education with the help of generous donors. There are about 50 children who are getting educational aid from the trust. The Peeth trust is also supporting Kashika, an organisation aimed at facilitating better education for Himalayan kids, in its efforts.
Publication of Complete works of Adi Shankaracharya: The Vidyapeeth is supporting Arsha Vidya Prathishtanam, Kerala for avery special academic project called the “Sri Sankara Sarasvata Sarvasvam”.

In 2016, the first set of 5 volumes in Malayalam was brought out and the work is on for the remaining ones. This project is carried out under the guidance of our resident Acharya Swami Haribrahmendrananda Teertha ji. For more information on the project, you can visit arshvidya.info
