The Shyamdas Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to the charitable purpose of preserving and advancing the legacy of Shyamdas, who dedicated his life to the music, literature, and people of Braj, a sacred region of North India. The foundation aims to preserve, publish and distribute his writings, translations and music. As Shyamdas was a talented and prolific linguist, the foundation will continue his legacy by advancing the study of Indian languages, including Sanskrit, Hindi, Gujarati and Brajbhasha, classical Indian and temple music, yoga, and Indian religions and spiritual practices. Lastly, the foundation works on environmental issues, such as reforestation, in the Braj region.

Quotes

“When the deer hear the rava, the sound of Hari’s flute, the fire of divine separation (ra) arises in them and then they are showered with nectar (va). They imbibe the divine rava and are mesmerized. Captivated by the sound, they realize their positions in God’s playground. It draws them close to Krishna and they sit near Him, determined and obsessed like a person who has taken a vow to fast until death. Those deer are like us: totally engaged with Krishna. He glances at them with the same loving mood with which He looks at us! They have attained the Gopis’ devotion!” — Ecstatic Couplets
