Help Temple servants in interior Tamil Nadu fight Covid lockdown

Background:

Temple ecosystem keeps Dharma afloat in villages of Tamil Nadu. Priest, Musicians – Vocal & Instrumental, floweriest, and other practitioners ( Gurukal, oduvars, Vidhwans etc.) are integral constituents of this ecosystem. Most of the identified stakeholders are in remotest villages and non-tourist locations. They continue to serve Dharma and God despite economic hardships.Coivd  - 19 marks a period of economic slowdown in India.  The resultant lockout will affect these stake holders and the village community that supports them financially.  March – April months generally is a period of silver lining. It marks the South Indian new year. It is also the period of temple centric festivities. The pandemic has stuck them in this period of hopeful financial prospect for these people who make their livelihood by serving God.

Goal of campaign

H.Raja and his team are continuously working for the betterment of temple ecosystem in Tamil Nadu. The goal of the fund rise is to support families of deserving stakeholders and their families (list attached is not exhaustive). These families shall be given Rs. 3000/- per month over the next two months. We shall update the target amount and list of deserving stakeholders affected by this epidemic.

Dear Donors,

Thanks for supporting the campaign to help TN temple servants survive Corona Lockdown. This Campaign got very good response from around the world. Your contributions helped the Temple servants just at the right time. The Priests were overwhelmed by this gesture of the hundreds of Dharmiks who chipped in with contributions for this cause.

On15th April 2020, in over 200 temples the beneficiary priests conducted – along with their routine Pooja – a Panchagavya Abishekam in a traditional manner in various temples with the approval of Dharma Acharyas and Scholars. The Abishekam followed by archanai was conducted for Loka Kshema, Rajya Rakshana, Eradicating Corona virus from the world and wellbeing of Donors and their families. Some temples did the Abishekam today.

We were keeping the campaign open till date so that as many good hearts could derive spiritual benefit from these Abishekams and Aradhana of such scale. Donors can expect the beneficiary list by the end of the month as an update. We are closing this campaign thanking you all again.
