I bow down to him who breathes out the veda and creates the universe from it, remaining uninvolved and who is the cherished shrine of pilgrimage for all the streams of knowledge. - Sayana Rg- Veda Bhasya

    Maitreyi stays with me

    The sights & sounds of Maitreyi, of the forest & hills that cradle it, I love them all. The cooks, the maids, the guardians of mind, body & soul, I love them all. With gratitude I share their dream! That it spreads itself under terracotta red, amongst rustling coconut palms & flowerings beds. Its ups & downs all charted out, health & wealth to optimize. Beautiful birds whose names I do not know, of melodious song flit & dart in verdant trees. Blossoms & fruits in mango grooves scent the air, clear blue skies, flowers in all God's hues. Grades of green from dark to light, a feast for my eyes. Waters tumbling down the hills, a brook with cooling, rushing spray, a paradise. To this I came and am loath to go, my bags will I pack with memories, all of love given me & of Yoga in the mandapam.... My aches & pains I leave behind, a result of tortures so endured, at hands of maiden so meek & mild! Contrary to what should be, that Maitreyi be done with me, this desire to return stays with me.

About the Retreat

As the hermitages and ashrams of ancient India “Maitreyi – The Vedic Village” is situated in the pristine, pure nature at the foothills of the Western Ghats, praised in the ‘Shastras’ (scriptures) for their spiritual atmosphere.

Maitreyi is an eco-friendly, spiritual and cultural retreat locatedadjacent to the Aliyar Dam Lake in Tamil Nadu known for its scenic beauty and pleasant climate throughout the year. Spread over 25 acres adjoining the Anamalai hills, the harmonious layout of the village enhances the beauty of the place.

The agriculture here is completely organic and the delicate balance of the natural ecosystemco-existing along the boundaries of the Indira Gandhi wildlife sanctuary has been carefully preserved. The architectural layout is based on the Vedic Science of architecture, Sthapatya Veda or VastuVidya and great care has been taken to use eco-friendly building materials for construction and maintenance.

In this relaxed and blissful atmosphere of the Vedic Village the practice of Yoga and Meditation supported by authentic Ayurvedic treatments will create an overall feeling of wellbeing, radiant health and profound inner experiences.

We conduct (on bookings), inspiring classes on different aspects of Vedic Science and its art forms, or organise on special occasions cultural events like classical Indian dance and music performances. We also celebrate festivals and ritualistic performances according to the Vedic calendar at Maitreyi’s Auditorium,which gives the guest a taste and introduction ofVedic culture.

Your accommodation in any of the beautiful, traditional cottages and delicious vegetarian meals at our “Annapoorna Bhavan” will make your vacation at Maitreyi in all ways pleasant, comfortable and memorable.

Day visits to the Aliyar Dam Lake, enchanting waterfalls and ancient temples in nearby villages will give you an insight into the simplicity and naturalness of rural life in India. The dynamism of urban India can be experienced by visiting either Coimbatore or Palghat, both cities 64 km from the Vedic Village.
