Words to live by 2,500 years ago, just as they are today. When you think about it, protection can come in many forms. The Outer form could look like physical protection… providing food and shelter, or financial help.
The Inner form of protection could perhaps be the understanding that in order to see a world in which everyone takes care of each other as if we were one loving family, we need to change our own individual thoughts, our perceptions, our very minds. No matter what… it requires action!
What positive thoughts did you have today that, if recognized, can begin to change your entire world? Share in the comments👇
In the heart of the ancient city of Varanasi, the Pāṇini Kanyā Mahāvidyālaya (Panini College for Girls) is preserving timeless wisdom in a distinctly modern way — through offering comprehensive Sanskrit and Vedic education to girls and young women, who historically have been excluded from the study of traditional Sanskrit knowledge systems like grammar, medicine, and philosophy.
ACIP celebrates the energy and vitality of centers for traditional learning like this in India. The Pāṇini College for Girls is a shining example of traditional knowledge systems and methods coming together with contemporary sensibilities and attitudes.
As Sanskrit pandits break with tradition to share their expertise with a new generation of women scholars, the survival of this extraordinary heritage is secured. ACIP seeks to support knowledge traditions like these in the same spirit of bringing together old and new, preserving traditions so they can continue to thrive. 🌱🌱🌱

Our South Indian Input Centers have been women-powered for over 33 years! And in some cases, a second generation is working alongside their mothers, who have been there from the beginning. How beautiful is that? ♥️
The wisdom traditions of Asia are limitless in their ability to heal and nurture the mind and body. Here’s to the work of our entire extended ACIP family! 🌈💎🌹
