Dear US readers,
As you all know, through the blog, we have been supporting veda and gho samrakshanam for the past few years. I have been doing this service along with you, in a personal level. While we were able to achieve certain objectives, a lack of proper organization had caused some operational issues – primarily for you – you were not able to do tax deduction on your contributions. This is important particularly if you are contributing anything more than few hundreds of dollars.
With the blessings of Kanchi Acharyas, we have received IRS’ non-profit status for Kanchi Guruparampara Foundation (KGF). On an auspicious day like today (Mahashivarathiri), we would like to share this with you all. Please visit (http://kgpfoundation.org) to know more.
The intended focus for this continues to be on the three specific areas:
- Supporting vedic education
- Preventing cow slaughters by supporting cow-adoption
- Support renovation of dilapidated temples
One of the miracles that happened in the process of getting the approval is that it took just 7 days to this organization approved by IRS. So far in my life, I have only heard it takes at least six months to one year for approval! I think ummachi thatha knows that I am too impatient and can’t wait for a long time – so He made this approval come through quickly.
I am excited. I am sure Periyava will give us all motivation and direction to continue our satsang through this blog and do these kainkaryams without losing focus. Through this organization, let us join hands to support these noble causes. Please spread the word to your friends and ask them to join this cause.
Please stay tuned for more news on approvals and other updates.
Om Nama Shivaya!
Mahaperiyava Paadham Potri!
