Because Bliss is for Everyone
The Vedic Times Foundation’s mission is to empower and enlighten all spiritual seekers to become stronger and holistically independent.
We’re manifesting revolutionary, caring and self-sustainable projects developed from 2015 to 2019 by Ana Lucia Alves (aka Aradhana dd), after she co-founded and successfully ran another Charity.
We’re also making movies with Yoga~Maya Entertainment (YME), so join us today.
The VTF projects are:
The Healing Arts ~ Starting with YME movies, to benefit all
Sadhu Huts ~ For your healthy retirement
Self Sustainable Eco-Villages ~ For spiritual growth & departure
Holistic Clinics ~ For you (the soul), your body and mind
Retreats Centers ~ To give knowledge & preventive medicine
The Master Plan:
In our Eco-Village Projects, funding can also be generated from our Holistic Clinics, Educational efforts and our cottage industries ~ our Sadhu Huts ~ and from its organic farming, honey sales, khaki cloth spinning, and other crafts.
Barter and exchanged services is also a paradigm of service we wish to exemplify. The residential village will be a vibrant place where events, workshops, kirtan, support groups, healing arts, and films with Yoga Maya Entertainment will be a mainstay.
Our Projects in more detail:
We look forward to developing these projects in different locations because this will assist the healthy growth of our wonderful ‘Spiritual Community’.
1. We aim to create employment to build, secure and maintain each community.
2. In each location, to have a VEDIC TIMES holistic clinic with first class treatments, free for local ‘spiritual seekers’ and paid for everyone else.
3. Retirement for devotees with our beautiful SADHU HUTS. This means income during its production and more employment for our ‘spiritual community’, because these ‘first class, healthy little homes’ will also be produced for selling outside.
4. Hospice Services (employment for carers, nurses, doctors, etc).
5. Out-Reach services (free and paid aid for the local population).
6. Holistic Education, free and paid, including religious education.
7. Preventive Health Care education (removing drugs, alcohol, etc). 8. Micro-Farming – Permaculture – Education (free and paid for).
9. Production of other “organic products” e.g. honey, dry fruits and flowers.
A ‘NEW WAVE’ FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
As physicists try to uncover the base structure of matter, Yoga-Maya is working to uncover the profound psychological nature of cinema.
Historically, ’emerging’ technologies (eg. sound, color, CGI) have caused many evolutionary paths in cinema to be prematurely abandoned, leaving its true potential largely undiscovered.
This focus on technology – rather than movies – has left audiences uninspired and studios relying on marketing rather than content.
Cinema’s renaissance is about the magic of cinema; conceiving, producing and experiencing it. Yoga-Maya is all about this 21st century ‘New Wave’.

Presenting CHANTING YOGA

THE PRACTICE AND BENEFITS OF ‘CHANTING YOGA‘
Chanting Yoga is a sublime and simple process by which one can attain peace of mind, bliss and everlasting happiness. From the vedic age came the idea of meditating with a mantra – a word or sound repeated to aid concentration. “Man” is mind and “tra” is to liberate. Therefore chanting of mantras frees the mind from entanglements.
Chanting Yoga combines two of the ancient processes of yoga – meditation (dyana) and repetition of mantras by concentrating on sound vibration. Chanting yoga offers a practical solution to the pressures of our time.
According to the vedic calendar, we are now in the age of Kali which has also been called the Machine age or the Iron age. It is a time when it is practically impossible to practice traditional meditation because we are constantly exposed to noise – traffic, mobile phones, music – which has become an integral part of our existence.
The nature of the mind is to be restless and this makes it extremely hard to concentrate on what we are doing let alone sit in tranquil meditation. Plus the pace of life makes it hard to find any time for our self.
Chanting Yoga is perfectly suited to this modern time of stressful and busy lifestyles:
- You can chant anywhere and anytime
- You can chant alone or in a group
- You can chant at work, while travelling or at home
- You don’t have to wear anything special
- You don’t have to sit in a particular position
- You don’t have to carry out any gymnastics
Chanting yoga is based on the concepts of self-regulation, relaxation, and holism. If one wishes, these concepts can be extended metaphorically to create a philosophy of living, encompassing diet, health, lifestyle and relationships with others and the world.
