I just realized that this is my 1000th post. As always, the number does not mean much – as long as these posts have impacted all of us in some way.
Incidentally, this post is of an important project that is happening in Nochiyam, Trichy. I already posted about this project and mami, who goes by a slogan “Periyava Paathuppa”. Literally that is how she started this Mahaswami Thapovanam – a dedicated temple for Goddess Raja Rajeswari and Mahaperiyava on the banks of Cauvery. I see similarity between Sri Pradosham mama and this mami in this one factor. I have been talking to Nochiyam whenever I find time….They keep me posted on the developments. The project has come up well – thanks to several great donors. Even from the blog some of you have contributed in the past.
Now the project is getting into the last stage of completion. Mami wants to do kumbabishekam by Mar/April. They are really in need of funds to complete this. Hindu has once again given some coverage to assist fund-raising…. I also got lots of photos from them…
Here are the links to them…..
Please contribute, however small it may be, to be part of a great initiative.
Here is the article from The Hindu::

“Funds are steadily flowing in and work is progressing at a brisk pace,” says septuagenarian Rajalakshmi Vittal, who thanks all the devotees of Paramacharya, spread across the globe, for their contribution. “Construction has reached a crucial phase and with more funds the shrines can be completed and Mahakumbabishekam performed,” observes Smt. Rajalakshmi.
Samrajaya Pattabishekam of Sri Lalitha Parameswari (Raja Mathangi) is her ultimate aim.
It was two years ago that she started the project, which includes a Veda Pata Sala, gosala and residents for senior citizens as a monument to Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati she worships. Articles in this supplement have helped her generate money for her dream complex.
