Simply Vedic was founded in Naperville, IL on November 20th, 2006. It began with inspiration from local families to serve the community with a quest to understand the demanding educational needs and provide needed support. In December 2008, we formally got incorporated and applied for nonprofit status.  We begin our nonprofit status in February 2009 and subsequently received federal and state recognition with 501 © (3) status. Although we do not have any formal membership requirement or fees, we do have support of over 60 families who serves as volunteers for our noble cause.

We are committed to continuously promoting educational and cultural programs for the betterment of our community.

The tenets of the Vedic way are based on non- denominational principles prescribed in the Vedas – ancient texts originating in India. The essence of the Vedic principles applied to modern day life is ‘simple living and high thinking’. Simply Vedic is based on the eternal Vedic principles of compassion, generosity, ahimsa (non-Violence), and oneness with nature. These principles translate into our programs to support the needy, strengthen families, and provide access to health, education, and wholesome food.

Simply Vedic invites you to take part in improving the lives of potentially vulnerable neighbors. Several human and cultural services programs run by Simply Vedic help children, seniors, and the community at large. You can change the story of a neighbor in need by volunteering or donating to a specific program.

 “Acts of sacrifice, charity and penance are not to be given up; they must be performed. Indeed, sacrifice, charity and penance purify even the great souls.”
