The VIHE in Vrindavan was established to fulfill Srila Prabhupada's desire for an educational institute in Vrindavan. The VIHE in the holy dhama provides an ideal facility and atmosphere for an enriched spiritual experience where you can improve your sadhana, develop your devotional qualities, engage in serious study, associate with senior devotees, receive spiritual training and live and take shelter of Sri Vrindavan dhama.

The VIHE also aims to preserve and disseminate standards Srila Prabhupada set for acting in Krishna consciousness and to deepen devotees' understanding, realization and appreciation of Srila Prabhupada's teachings and movement. Thus, the Krishna conscious culture and values that Srila Prabhupada gave us can be passed on to successive generations.

All courses are well researched and taught by senior devotees who have a deep understanding of the subject.
