COVID Support for bhattachariars in sholingur lakshmi narasimha Temple

₹88,902 of ₹94,000 raised

Details of the campaign

Background

The priests of the Sholingur Narasimha temple are facing the brunt of the lockdown. Their livelihood was sustained by the offerings of the devotees who visited the temple. The only means of income has been severely impacted due to the present lockdown. 

The Doddachariyar Swamy Shri. K.K.C. Rajaswamy reached out to Shri.Ramakrishnan for help.  Shri. Ramakrishnan is well-known to Sethubandhanam users as one who regularly helps supply oil to various Paadal Petra temples in Tamil Nadu.  Please watch the video to understand from him about this. 

This campaign focuses on providing dhaanam to 17 individuals in the temple – Rs. 3000 or 2000 per head for the next two months.  This includes:

  • 6 Doddachariyar Swamy
  • 6 Bhattachariyar
  • 4 Parcharakar
  • 1 Devasthanam Prohidar

 Let us support the true bearers of dharma! 

Significance of this cause

The COVID-19  lockdown has impacted several people and events across the country. The Sholingur (Kadigachalam)  Narasimha Swamy temple’s bhattars will be provided with support through this campaign. 

Why support this cause? 

The bhattars have only one stream of income – the offerings of devotees who visit the temple. With the lockdown extended and that crowds to temples will take a while to restore, the COVID crisis’ impact will be felt even after the lockdown is lifted. Thus a support of ₹3,000 per head, albeit small, will go a long way for the bhattars. 

Our donors had supported the Bhattars of the temple during last year’s COVID lockdown as well. Details here. 

Let us support the true bearers of dharma!
