Tattvaloka is a unit of the Sringeri Sarada Peetham with the Jagadguru Sri Sankaracharya of Sringeri as the Patron-in-Chief. Sringeri is one of the four pillars of Sanatana Dharma set up by the Adi Sankaracharya in the 9th century CE.
Our principal objective is to spread the traditions and values enshrined in our scriptures and as taught by our spiritual masters.

Besides our publishing offices, the complex houses spacious research facilities, a well equipped library, a modern IT and communication support, a 300-seat air conditioned auditorium, a meditation hall and pantry.

We publish Tattvaloka, the Splendour of Truth, a high quality, a spiritual family magazine in English since April 1978. In Sanskrit, Tattva is Truth, and Aloka is Splendour.
