Welcome to Anaadi Foundation

Founded by Shri. Adinarayanan and Smt. Smrithi , Anaadi Foundation is a Socio-spiritual organization dedicated to Self-Unfoldment of individuals . Anaadi in Sanskrit means "beginningless". It represents pure consciousness which has neither beginning nor end. Anaadi Foundation is named so as the organisation does not have a "characteristic" beginning. It flowed as a natural next step in our lives. Anaadi Foundation offers a platform where those connected with us can experience their beginningless nature and lead a life of happiness, fulfillment and selfless service.

Focus Areas

Exposure to the Indian tradition and principles from our culture can help lead a self-reliant, successful and happy life. We have designed a number of programs, deep rooted in Indian principles, offered in a very contemporary manner.
