Manuscript Preservation

This is a project dedicated to the protection and preservation of rare and ancient manuscripts, and publishing unpublished manuscripts.

Preservation of Adi Sankara Nilayam

Adi Sankara Nilayam is privileged to be the very birthplace of Adi Sankaracharya. The 1200 year old property must be preserved for generations to come for it embodies the very spirit of Vedanta.

General Donation

A lot of what CIF does is very research intensive. This is exactly in line with Pujya Gurudev’s vision, that CIF shall create an environment for purposeful research and knowledge discovery. General donations are a one-time gift made at any time.


Your help, however meagre it may be, will be a kindly thought of love from you. We respect all such small donations, and consider them as holy.
Love Love Love

-Swami Chinmayananda
