VASA – Vedic Academy of Sciences and Arts
We are deeply appreciative of all our students and supporters. This past year, many of you have contributed your time and energy to VASA. One of the things Jeffreyji really appreciates is your steady creative input into the many global projects on which we are working. Your diverse ideas and energetic involvement sustains and inspire us.
Thank you for your devotion – it inspires us to new levels of service.
Jeffrey Armstrong, Sri Kavindra Rishi
Thank you to our everyone who contributed at 2014 Guru Puja – we raised just over $5000 which is enough to get the graphics, and BVG book layout to the next level! Funds are still required for the first hard cover printing and we will be coming up with a creative incentive for that portion of the project…All donations are recorded and your continued support of this worthy project is greatly appreciated.
We can give you a receipt for a monetary “GIFT” donation.

How to help...
Jeffrey’s only desire is to spread the Vedic knowledge and you can help in a number of ways.
OUR MAIN PROJECTS THIS YEAR…
Preparing for the book launch of THE NEW BHAGAVAD GITA Timeless Wisdom for a Modern World.
We are very excited about the release of the NEW Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive and we thank you for your financial support and enthusiastic dedication to our vision of bringing the healing tonic of Vedic knowledge to the world.
The book is in “final text edit” with the cover artwork and graphics to be decided. Our hope and dream is that the hard copy will be placed in every hotel room in North America and the UK over the next 2-5 years. This is a huge project and requires substantial funding at various levels. We are currently at the prospectus stage and are seeking a joint venture partner or someone to assist in the management of the whole project.
BVG E-BOOK & Audio Versions: We require a special interactive e-book program that allows the ACCURATE definitions of the original Sanskrit to “appear” as one places their cursor over the word. Studio time to record Jeffrey speaking the BVG.
Marketing and distribution of all versions: Develop and fund the marketing plan
PROJECTS: updated Dec 2015
Upgrades to our ja.com web sites and pages: * Mostly completed! Thanks to Barry at iceandfire.ca
We have a new webmaster and you are currently on the NEW site – many of the plug-ins disintegrated on the old site and this was one of the reasons we were able to be hacked this spring. We are still recovering data base info and trying to steady our financial platform – it was very disruptive to say the least.
Webinars: (taken a backward step – on hold) We now have an integrated YouTube channel for Jeffrey’s lectures and are beginning to produce an on-going webinar series to promote the existing classes on the website.
Marketing of the VASA Affiliate Program on the ja.com website:
Students, yoga studios and/or teachers can now enhance their philosophical learning and subsidize their income by recommending VASA classes on their websites. Check out our affiliate program – its growing!
Additionally, our food outreach program (now in it’s 17 year) www.SpudPatrol.com needs a volunteer web person.
