Nov’ 22-Sri Periyava Kainkaryam: Annadhana Seva Update – Around 1000 meals served

‘பரோபகாரம்’ என்ற வார்த்தையும் ஒரு தினுஸில் தப்புதான். பரனுக்கு (பிறத்தியானுக்கு) இவனுடைய ஸேவை உபகாரமாக இல்லாவிட்டாலும்கூட, ஸ்வயமாக இவனுக்கே சித்த பரிசுத்தியை உண்டாக்குவதால், இதை ‘ஸ்வய உபகாரம்’ என்றுதான் சொல்ல வேண்டும். – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீசந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகளின் அருள்மொழிகள்

Even the word “Paropakaram” which means Philanthropy is a wrong word when viewed from a certain perspective. Para means others and Upakaram means service.  Even if   a person’s   service is not of any use to the others, it cleanses his own mind. Hence it must be called not Paropakaram, but Swaya Upakaram or service to one’s own self. – Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal


Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – By Sri Periyava Krupai and all of your support, we could provide around 1,000 meals last month (Nov ’22) to roadside poor people, orphanage/old/destitute, and special children homes.

Posting a few pictures of our Annadhana Kainkaryam below.
