Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha
It is well known to all of you that our Acharyan is very much keen to spread the learning of Vedas by young brahmachari brahmin boys, irespective of sects like vadakalai, Thenkalai, smaartha or maadhva. Objective is to preserve Vedas and vedic tradition and encourage young boys to get attarcted to these studies. Our Ashramam with the support of many of you, gives incentives like free vedic education, accomodation and food plus monthly allowance. Besides this at the end of their 8 to 12 years Course, a lump sum amount is given, along with the certificate of course completion.
As far as the number of students are concerned, Srirangam and Tiruchanur stand at the top. At Tiruchanur around 60 boys are taking the various courses,primarily Yajur Veda and its divisions.
Last Sunday, I was in Tiruchanur and met our Ashramam Trustee Sri Chakravarthi, who was pleased to give a copy of photographs taken of the vidyarthees as well as certificate and incentive presentation by H H, who camped there two weeks back .
