Geetha Govinda Samskrita Sangha (GGSS) is a non-profit organisation established by Smt. Ananthalakshmi Natarajan in 1976, with the blessings of the Jagadguru of Sringeri, with an aim to nurture and preserve samskrita and samskriti. For the past 40 years, GGSS has been conducting shloka and sanskrit classes for students of all age groups. There is no monetary fees for classes - however, regularity, punctuality and humility are the fees that students & parents have to pay. The organisation is supported by volunteers who have been inspired by the pristine life and lofty ideals of Smt. Ananthalakshmi Natarajan. Thousands of people have discovered a better way of life under her guidance at GGSS.

GGSS aims to create an awareness of our culture and its values in children, and make them true cultural citizens of 'Bhaarata'. It coaches students for the sanskrit exams conducted by many reputed organisations like the Surasaraswathisabha (established by the jagadguru of Sringeri), Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, and the government of Karnataka. The syllabus for shlokas includes many stotras of Adi Shankaracharya, the Bhagavadgita, and portions from the epics Sankshepa-ramayanam from Srimadramayanam, Gopika gitam from Srimadbhagavatam, etc.

GGSS also conducts dharmic activities like pujas during special occasions, rathotsavas, summer camps, annual Inter-school competitions(Pratibha) at Vyalikaval Education Society - Vidya samskruthi school, Bangalore - 560003, and the like.
