The Jnana of Gurudev is seen through CIF's research activities, Bhakti through the temples which CIF tirelessly preserves, and Seva through the various lectures, seminars, workshops, camps, and programs it conducts. The activities of CIF are predominantly research and knowledge intensive. Do contribute to Gurudev's lofty vision and tireless service embracing the whole world and support for the projects of CIF. CIF will continue to excel and to serve with your support and strive to fulfil the vision of Pujya Gurudev and the cause of Indian Knowledge Traditions (IKT).
