An Appeal

Pious Bhaktha and Blessed Rasika

An appealOn behalf of Sathguru Thiagabrahma Aradhana Trust and Sathguru Sangeetha  Sabha I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your  benevolent, moral and monetary support for the successful completion and ardently religious consecreation of Sri Sathguru Thiagaraja Bhavanam. The ‘Sathguru Bhavanam’ is dedicated to Sri Sathguru Thiagaraja Swamigal and is also the holy abode of Sri Rama, Sita Devi and Sri Lakshmana along with Bhaktha Hanuman,Lord Vinayaka and Chakkarathazhvar.

This is a truly unique temple as Sri Thiagaraja composed the ‘Srirangam Pancharatnam’, the five incomparable jewels to be the musical adornments to Lord Renganatha, it is befitting that the temple sits right in the heart of Srirangam, on the banks of Cauvery. The ‘Vaidheega Pradhishtai’ of the idols has been completed and the Maha Kumbhabhishegam along with aaru kaala Poojai was performed with great pomp, splendor and religious fervor. During the four-day long consecration celebrations the Trusf had also performed the mammoth task of serving annadhaanam to all the devotees and general public, who participated in the events on all the days irrespective of caste, creed or community. The Bhavanam is also commited to the cause of uninterrupted chanting of
‘Rama nama’ and also performing seva by adhering to the ancient traditions and practices.

C_0023Apart from these crowning glories, ‘Sathguru Thiagaraja Bhavanm’ is being lauded as the only temple in all of India, where the Holy Saint Thiagaraja is worshipped and sanctified along with Lord Rama, Sri Lakshmana and Sita Devi in the same Garbhagriha.

Keeping in mind in the enduring faith you have held in our efforts to serve the cause of classical music, I would like to extend a humble request to your esteemed selves to look favourably upon the ‘Sri Sathguru Thiagaraja Bhavanam Nithya Pooja Seva and Annadhaanam Endowment Fund’. This pioneering venture is the big step forward and comes in the form of a monumental Endowment Fund we plan to create, with your help. The governing Trust has come to a consensus to create a corpus fund for the Endowment by collecting a sum of Rs. 10,000/- per individual and the daily seva shall be performed in their honour on one auspicious day of your choice, during the year.


TC_0029his fund will serve as the monetary source for performing daily seva to the deities at the temple and also the financial reservoir for the noble anna dhaanam, served in the form of prasaadam, to all devotees and visitors, with no distinction of class or origin. Every bhaktha and rasika has a stake in ensuring this one-ofits-kind Bhavanam remains vibrant in the years to come. Your generous tax-deductible contribution (Under BOG of the Income Tax Act), in the name of thyself as well as the members of your family, will allow the Bhavanam to be perennially selfsustaining and will also help the governing Trust to conduct Vedic rites and charitable tasks for the good of the society and humanity.

By Supporting the Endowment Fund this year and every year on memorable occasions, such as your b-irthdays or anniversaries, you would enable the Trust to continue this noble musical tradition which is being carried on in the name of His Holiness Sri Thiagaraja Swamigal, for many decades. As Lord Rama and Saint Thiagaraja embody the concept of kindness and benevolence, we seek whole-hearted contributions from devotees and philanthropic institutions and beseech you for your sustained support to our endeavours in the present and in future. I look forward to your generous gift and thank you for making the ‘Sri Sathguru Thiagaraja Bhavanam Daily Seva and Anna Dhaanam Endowment fund’a charitable priority this year and for joining us in upholding the eternal glory of the Sathguru and Sri Rama.

C_0025I hope that you would honour our request and offer your much-valued support in this regard and seek the blessings of  the holy deities.

Thank you very much.





With warm regards.
Managing Trustee &
The Trust Board Members
