ANANTAPUR: TTD executive officer A.V. Dharma Reddy observed that Vedas have continued to impart in-depth knowledge on 190 subjects, including aerospace, mathematics, health and yoga, over thousands of years.

Speaking after inaugurating the unique Vedic Heritage Corridor on the premises of the TTD-run SV Vedic University, Dharma Reddy lauded the efforts of SVVU in propagating ancient knowledge among younger and future generations.

He released two volumes titled "Some facets of Indian knowledge systems" and "Essays on Indian knowledge systems" penned by vice chancellor Acharya Rani Sadashiv Murty.

Speaking on the occasion, the VC said Vedas and Homas must not be viewed as just cultural and religious elements. These impart useful knowledge for the well-being of society even today.

Rani Sadashiv Murty said the Vedic heritage corridor focuses on the link between present-day society and ancient knowledge. The corridor also has photo exhibits and is open to all for enlightening themselves.

Later, Dharma Reddy reviewed the progress of the TTD’s manuscripts project. He suggested that an MoU be signed for digitising the manuscripts available with TTD, individuals and institutions around Tirupati. The EO expressed happiness with the pace of digitisation, oiling, scanning, cataloguing and storing in lockers of available manuscripts, a project undertaken jointly by the TTD and Sanatana Jeevan Trust.

Dharma Reddy suggested that access be given to these documents to all those who are interested in studying or researching them.

JEO Sada Bhargavi, Sanatana Jeevana Trust president Sridhar, deputy EO of Manuscripts Project Vijayalakshmi and SV Vedic University registrar Radhe Shyam were among those present.
