To educate the general public in the principles of Hindu dharma, the Veda Niketan formed study groups in different areas. Such groups were formed in Durban Central, Reservoir Hills, Pietermaritzburg and Stanger in the eighties. Swadhyaya should form a very important part of the activities of the affiliated institutions of the Sabha. The publications of Veda Niketan form a useful part of the library of religious books of every Arya Samaj. Today the most active Swadhyaya or Study Group is the Vedic Study Circle which offers a graded study on the more philosophical and abstract aspects of Sanathan Dharma.
