The Vaishnava Center for Enlightenment (founded 1994) is an organization based in East Lansing, Michigan.

  • Meeting the demands of the Narmada Bachao Andolan and halting the construction of the Maheshwar and Narmada dam projects ,
  • Promoting harmony and dialogue between Hindus Muslims, as well as opposing communalism and human rights violations.
