COVID support for temple priests in TN


During these lockdown times precipitated by the current pandemic, one particular group of Santana Dharmis are working against all odds to maintain our cultural and dharmic heritage: Shivachariyars and Sri Vaishnava Bhattars and other temple sevartis, particularly in temples that either do not attract significant crowds in even normal days and /or those in remote areas.  Indic Collective is one of the foremost highly respected organizations, run by individuals who have devoted their entire lifes for Sanatana Dharmic causes, including such outstanding Shaivaite Scholars and social service volunteers as Sri T.R. Ramesh. T.R. Ramesh is also the President of Temple Worshippers Society which took a timely initiative last year to support village Temple archakas and Tiruchendur Temple Servants.  This organization strives to pass on the entire donations to intended recipients with no administrative costs borne by donors.

If you wish to donate funds from India  directly  to this trust, please visit for details. 

This site lists the current list of intended final recipients. If you wish to donate to any particular temples or individuals who serve in those temples, which are not listed in this site, you are welcome to add such intended recipients by sending an email to

If you live in the US and wish to make tax-deductible donations to such worthy causes as helping really poor Shivachariyars and Sri Vaishna Bhattars struggling to maintain our priceless cultural heritage despite  extreme financial distress, you are welcome to send your funds to Kanchi Guruparampara Foundation: please go to

As a special request to US donors, after you donate to KGF, pl drop an email to with a note for the intended purpose.

Every small bit helps. We pray to Sri Maha Periyava, Sri Pudhy Periyava and Sri Periyava to Bless all the donors and their families with the very best for their support to this noble and most urgent cause.

Hara Hara Shankara! Jaya Jaya Shankara!
