Acharya Shunya, who is the founder of Vedika Global, has dedicated her life to the dissemination of Vedic knowledge for the spiritual upliftment of all beings. She is a distinguished Vedic Scholar, and the living custodian of an eminent Vedic lineage from Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India that has been imparting Ayurveda, Yoga, and Vedanta teaching for generations, in the tradition of classical gurukulam education.
Acharya Shunya has the special gift of awakening hope in suffering hearts and minds. Her authoritative, verse-by-verse teachings illumine the otherwise hard to interpret ideas from abstruse texts, in pure, clear light. Her discourses, displaying the depth of her knowledge, greatly benefit all students, regardless of their background, spiritual alignment, and state of consciousness. As a teacher, Acharya Shunya exudes compassion for all beings, and demonstrates tireless dedication towards alleviating existential suffering, by dispelling spiritual ignorance and igniting knowledge of the true Self.
Acharya Shunya has over twenty years of experience facilitating Vedic education, which supports life-altering shifts in individual and group consciousness. She invites her students to live a spiritually awakened life by applying the principles, philosophy, psychology, scientific theory, and spiritual practices of the Vedas.
Acharya Shunya is considered a pioneering, leading voice in reviving the ancient Gurukulam system of education in Ayurveda and Vedic sciences internationally, and has been awarded and recognized for it, in India, as well as the United States. She has conceived of Vedika Global as an altar of transformation, enabling education in Vedic sciences for personal wellbeing and societal benefit, and the teaching of consciousness-transforming Vedanta teachings, directly from the source texts (the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita).
Acharya Shunya’s own knowledge of classical Ayurveda and Vedic Sciences stems from 14 years of rigorous Gurukulam-based training in the holy city of Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India.
