“Sacred education is a God given right of each person that begins prior to birth. Our mission is to deliver this inalienable right thereby facilitating our ultimate purpose, to know God.”


All bonafide institutions of learning are built upon knowledge. It is ‘to perfect the acquisition of the sacred sciences attained at the feet of qualified teachers distinguished by an authentic chain of sacred transmission that stretches unbroken all the way back to the divine origin’. This objective is the basis for the preservation of sacred knowledge as well as for the spread of the Sacred Law amongst humanity such that it requires formal acquisition alongside a connection with the chain of transmission. This is attained by reading selected texts that vary in their degrees of difficulty upon scholars of repute.
