A Yajur Veda Patasala in Mylapore, Chennai, that houses 15-20 vidhyarthis (students) along have requested for support. Our donors have been kindly supporting the patasala’s electricity and cook expenses for a couple of years now.
The patasala has grown in terms of number of students but the entire family of Shri.Chandru Ganapatigal and over 15 students are living out a very cramped space. Shri.Chandru Ganapatigal has reached out for support for construction of a patasala in the neighboring street in Mylapore which can help the patasala grow and flourish.
Shri. Chandru Ganapatigal has requested our donors to support with cement bags, sand, jelly and cosntruction materials.
They were also impacted by the floods which is indicated in the video. Kindly request our donors to continually support the Patasala, in the great Mylapore kshetram in Madrapuri (Chennai aka Madras).
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.
Shri. Chandru Ganapatigal has requested donors to support construction efforts and permanent support. His initial requirement as mentioned to us was Rs. 2.38L for cement and steel bars and construction materials.
