Vedic civilization stands on three core foundations:
The seat of knowledge and philosophy that preserves the Vedic wisdom e.g. MahanirvaniPeetha, Madurai Adeenam.
Sacred Arts and Architecture e.g. temples, kingdoms.
The seat of language – the perfect, most refined linguistic expression of the Truth. e.g. Kashi in North India (Samskrit) and Tamil Sangam in South India (Tamil).
Whenever there comes danger to any of these core foundations, the All-knowing Spiritual Seat of Knowledge or Sarvajnapeetha, through its presiding Master, descends as the ‘Jagadguru’ to revive, protect and radiate Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism for the whole of human civilization.

“Whenever and wherever there is decline in spiritual
practice, O Bharat, and a predominant rise of irreligion
– at that time I descend Myself. To enrich and deliver
the pious beings, to annihilate the miscreants, and to
re-establish the sacred principles of cosmic truth, I myself
appear, age after age.”
~ bhagavad gita, 4.7-8
