About Tṛtīyam Viśva Veda Vijñāna Sammelanam (VVVS)
Today, in spite of tremendous strides in science and technology as well as economic development, the world is facing enormous environmental, ecological and ethical challenges that are threatening the very survival of human kind. Some thought leaders and distinguished scientists have gone to the extent of stating that this will be the last century for humanity unless we shift our concept and paradigm of development and progress.There is an urgent need of changing our world view through the harmony of man, machine and nature.
It is widely believed that the insights of future development are rooted in the Vedic perspective (Indian Knowledge System) that sees the whole world as one family and in fact enunciates oneness of the whole universe.
It is in this context,the Vijnana Bharati (VIBHA) has taken major initiative of organizing World Congress of Vedic Sciences since 2004.

The second Congress of Vedic Sciences was organized in collaboration with Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in Varanasi in February 2007. Now, the Vijnana Bharati (VIBHA) is organizing the 3rd World Congress of Vedic Sciences with the Deccan College Deemed University from 10th - 13th January 2018 in Pune
