THIRUKOIL THIRUKKULA KAIMKARYA PATHRIKKAI



This is with regard to a proposal on renovation of
temple tank  which is owned by Sri Srinivasa
perumal,Navalpakkam.

This tank named "Ramanuja Siras" is being used for the
daily thiruvaradhanam of Sri Srinivasa perumal.History
says that Thirumalai nambigal did the THEERTHA
KAIMKARYAM for Srinivasa perumal at Thirupathi.
Here, the kaimkaryam for the presiding deity Sri
Srinivasa perumal is  being done by the Thirumalai
nambigal's lineage .

Perumal presides over this tank during chiththirai
brahmotsavam and Thai maatham Paarvettai utsavam ,the
beauty of which cannot be expressed merely by words.
Also the tank water quenches the thirst of the people
residing at Navalpakkam village.

The tank has steps only on two sides of it.Also the
depth of the tank is decreased   and hence the
capacity to save water has also come down.

Thus it  has lead to a situation where people suffer
from water scarcity for 4 months in a year.For
Instance,this year tank did not have water for 
Chittirai Utsavam.

Hence , a proposal has been made to meet the objective
of 

1.Constucting the steps on other 2 sides of the tank
2.Removing the corrosion etc.
3.To dig 100 feet in the middle of the tank and to
support by  stone steps
to provide uininteruppted water facility.
4.To contruct a mandapam for Perumal to preside over
the tank during the festivals,Theerthavaari
and Paarvettai Utsavam

The cost is estimated around Rs.5 lacs for these
kaimkaryams.

Instead of a single person taking over the whole
project,many can extend their support to provide the
water facility ,so that everybody would get benefitted
as said in Itihasaas .

Itihasaas lists out the benefits of providing water
facility (Palangal) with regards to the services done
on specific months as follows.

Aavani Purattasi----- Punyam of performing Agni Hotram
Aippasi Karthikai-----Punyam of donating 1000 cows.
Thai,Maargazhi--------Punyam of sacrificing gold in
Yagyna,Homam
Maasi Panguni---------Punyam of performing Agnishtoma
yaagam
Chittirai,Vaikaasi----Punyam of performing
Athiraadhram yaagam
Aani Aadi  -----------Punyam of performing Ashvamedha
yaagam

Hence we request you to consider the above proposal
and extend your possible support through financing to
the extent possible and attain the grace and
paripoorna krpai of Sri Srinivaasa perumal .

Donation by MO/Cheque /DD may be made in the name of
"THIRUKKULA THIRUPPANI COMMITTEE" and sent to
Secretary or Treasurer.
