Generally to do all kind of possible humanitarian services to mankind. They have requested for kind and liberal donations to the Trust. Cheques or drafts may be drawn in favour of ‘TAMBRAS FOUNDATION’ payable at Salem and sent to 36-B Venkatesapuram, Komarasamypatty, Salem 636007, India.

6.2  SRI SATHA CHANDI HOMAM

With the blessings of Their Holiness Sri Jayendra Saraswati Swamigal and Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal of Kanchi Lamakoti Peetam and Sri Bharathi Theertha Swamigal of Sringeri Sarada Peetam,  Athi Rudra Japa Homam and Sri Satha Chandi Homam is being planned to be conducted at Sri Rathnagiriswarar Temple, Besant Nagar, Chennai from 22nd July to 1st Aug 1999.

Eminent Vedic Scholars from different parts of India will be participating in the Athi Rudra Maha Yajnam. Elaborate arrangements are being made to conduct the Athi Rudram in a unique manner for the benefit of humanity as a whole – for all round prosperity and peace. It augurs well because the Athi Rudram is planned at the time when the country is passing though a difficult period. We need a lot of blessing to revitalise trade and economy, good friendship with neighbouring countries, amity and oneness of all the people and health and prosperity of all living beings.

Conducting the Athi Rudra with religious sanctity and serenity involved huge expenditure – to the tune of over 14 lakhs. This is the first of its kind in Sri Rathnagirishwarar Temple since its inception. In addition to Athi Rudra Maha Yajnam, a simultaneous "SATHA CHANDI HOMAM" is also being planned with the help of eleven Sri Vedya Upasakas to make the Athi Rudra Homam more purposeful and powerful.

The Temple committee has appealed for generous participation and liberal contribution of cash to the grand success of the Homam and also to reap the fruits of this sacred and great venture.

Cheques/Drafts may be drawn in favour of ‘SRI RATHNAGIRISWARAR TEMPLE ATHI RUDRAM COMMITTEE’ and sent to 6th Cross Street, Besant Nagar, Chennai 600—090, Tamil Nadu, India.
