Background

Sri Chakra Mahameru Peetham is the seat of Mahameru and Sri Chakra worship established in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. The peetathipadhi of the Matham, His Holiness Sri Sri Sacchidananda Tirtha Mahaswamigal is a Advaita Sannyasi in the lineage of the Shankaracharya tradition. He has taken Sannyasa Diksha from HH Sri Sri Ishwarananda Tirtha Mahaswamin and is a devotee of The Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham.

Swamigal has established the Sri Chakra Mahameru Peetham in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh State 20 years ago. He is affectionately referred to as ‘Bilaspur Swamigal’ by his devotees.

His Holiness Sri Sri Bilaspur Swamigal, has personally sought the assistance of our donors to assist the Patasala run by the Matham. 

Let us support these children who are the future custodians of our dharma.

Significance of this cause

Veda Samarakshnam is one of the foremost duties of the society. The prime purpose of study of Vedas is Loka kshemartam (well-being of the world). While tomes have been written extolling the Vedas and the need for preservation of the same in our Dharma, protecting those who sacrifice their lives to study the vedas is our duty in every right. 

In the older times, kings and the entire society considered it their duty to protect those who study they Vedas.

Unfortunately, we as a society have failed to impress upon ourselves that this is the highest forms of education. One that involves atleast 12 years of study of the most evolved of subjects. It is an education which students undertake with no assurances of a well-being for the life of a Vaidika is one of regimen and sacrifice.  All these children have the easier option of taking up mainstream education, earn degrees and thereby an assured livelihood. 

But they have chosen to study the Vedas and they should be supported, extolled and revered by our entire society. While that clearly is not the case, the least we can do is ensure that Veda Patasalas financially well-provided to.

Kindly request our donors to contribute towards this very important cause. 

Details of this campaign

This campaign which will be run every month looks to generate to meet the operational expenses of the patasala  There are 70  students in the patasala besides the Vedic pundits.  We will first target a meagre sum of Rs. 60,000 per month {Rs. 5000 per student per month for 12 students) to start with. 

Their requirements are much larger and we hope our donors will help scale this campaign.
