Noted singer Sri SPB donates his house to Kanchi Matam for vedapatasala


Shastras say that we all should give dhanams even if it is small and it also says that it should be secretive and not for publicizing. Unfortunately for these celebrities even if they want to do it quietly they can’t due to their popularity. That’s the price for their popularity. Regardless, there are great souls in film industry like Sri SPB who do lot of kainkaryams with pure intent. Salute to you Sri SPB Sir!

He invited Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swami of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham and formally handed over the house on February 11, 2020 to complete the formalities.

Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swami which said, the house would be used to run a Vedic school and he appreciated the singer’s generosity. Meanwhile, Balasubramaniam said that he was feeling very happy that Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham is going to turn his house into a Vedic school. He said Peetham had given him an opportunity to utilize the premises for a noble cause.

Shripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubramaniam (SPB) was born on June 4, 1946, Kannettamma Pettah, Nellore district. Later, he emerged as an iconic singer and settled Chennai in 1960. He has sung over 40,000 songs across 16 languages films includes Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.

  1. A great Soul besides being a great Singer.Reached God’s Abode.

  2. Balu a great singer, now he has proved that he has a noble humanity too.

    He has proved that he has a noble heart ♥ too, Great.

  3. Excellent gesture by SPB. His paternal home is to be filled with vedic vibrations.

  4. Our Dharma may say we need to keep donations private, but I believe our actions have the power to influence, and therefore publicizing them is not a bad thing. I donate in a very small way. But what got me started was my neighbor in Bangalore who was very vocal about his charity work. He continues to inspire me. Likewise, I tell the parents of the students I tutor that the money is being given away. I do this because I hope my students and their families get inspired in their turn to give. By doing this, if my “punniyam” gets reduced, so be it.

  5. Jaya Jaya Sankara, Hara Hara Sankara. All said and done, celebrity Shri SPB could have done anything with his ancestral house but his thought to donate to the Holy Kanchi Sri Matham for Veda Patashala is indeed noble. May he and his family be blessed. Certainly Maha Periyava, Pudu Periyava and Kanchi Peetathipathi would be pleased to bless this gentle man.

  6. Although celebrities’ small contribution also made bigger (SPB contributes liberally to religious matter) in Media, it is still welcome, because these things will attract public attention and inspire people to contribute to such purposes.

    May Maha Periva bless him and his family endless Anugraha!

    Jaya Jaya Shankara…. Hara Hara Shankara….
