 Kanchi Acharyas

As Lockdown continues, there is not a section of the population, which has not been impacted by the inactivity it has necessitated. While the Government and private organisations are taking care of the basic needs of the underprivileged to keep hunger at bay, there are certain categories, which do not come under the mainstream umbrella. These relate to temple activities and people performing various roles in the practice of Sanathana Dharma. Led by Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswati, 70th head, Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Pitam is making efforts to address the lacunae by providing relief on several fronts to those deprived of their livelihood during this unprecedented situation.

With generous support from donors, Sri Pratyaksha Charitable Trust could disburse Rs 1,000 each to 1,350 Archakas belonging to North Arcot, South Arcot, Chengalpattu, Kanchipuram, Puducherry, Tiruvarur, Kumbakonam, Nagapattinam and Ramanathapuram districts. It is noteworthy that among the beneficiaries were those in villages and remote hamlets. Support was also extended to those who are performing pujas in temples and Adishtanams belonging to Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Pitam. The Trust plans to continue the gesture in May as well. Those who wish to support the Trust may send the money to Sri Pratyaksha Charitable Trust, A/c 049001000645148, IFSC CIUB0000049, CUB Anna Salai Branch, Chennai.
