As one of the most important lesson learnt from our vathyar is helping the needy to fulfil the very basic needs like food, clothing, water, medicine and shelter, we take utmost care in doing all of the mentioned to reach the right people in the right time and manner.
Our NGO Family comprises of people from all sections of the society who do not mind sweating out for service to mankind so as to do what we have been trained for doing…
First task is Annadhanam…
Many would be curious to know what procedure we follow to do these…

Stage 1: The NGO members themselves do the cooking so we get up early and get the things ready for preparing vegetable brinji and kurma.

Stage 6: The We get the cooked food outside and this is escorted by our Nadhaswaram Adiyars from Thirunedingalam … Our vathyar used to speak a lot about “Mangala Vadhyam” meaning Special Divinic Musical instruments like Nadhaswaram and Thavil to escort the food vessels so that to add more spiritual flavour and to ward off evil that might cause problems while doing good activities as such.. Here is a pic of that .. Image
