SrimathE GopAla DEsika mahAdEsikAya nama:

Sriman Varadhan:

It is very nice of you to come up with a proposal to support our divya dEsams.
adiyEn would like to share some of schemes already followed in some of the
temples in
South India that adiyEn knows of.

In Sri Lakshminarasimhan temple in PonviLaintha kaLathur (near OtthivAkkam),
there is a nithya ArAdhanai scheme where each AsthikA sets aside a fixed amount
as suggested by the temple (committee). The devotee picks the day for the
The earned interest is utilized to sponsor the nitya ArAdhanai for that day. The
may be of importance to the devotee, the day may be a birthday, wedding
anniversary or
someone's ninaivu day (in memory of). There is also sponsorship for the entire
mAsam pujAs. You could extend this to nitya viLakku kaimkaryam. adiyEn is one of
the many many participants in the temple.

Once the deposit is made, the kaimkaryam can go on.

There are other temples that are following similar schemes.
