Appeal From President Sri R. Keshavachar of  SreeVaishnava Sangha 
(Vishnuchitta Vidyarathi Nilaya (hostel))

Objectives of SreeVaishnavaSangha :

To uplift rural Srivaishnavas who are economically, educationally, socially
and traditionally weak(mainly from Archakas Families)  , to spread
Srivaishnavism in the society.

Activities of Sree Vaishnava Sangha :

Vishnuchitta Vidyarathi Nilaya (hostel) was started in 1989 for
poor-brilliant srivaishnava boys. This hostel provides these srivaishnava
boys free lodging and boarding facilities for studying in pre-university
courses, degree and technical courses, besides giving lessons in
AGAMA/Sanskrit, Vedas, Tiruvaimuli, Divya prabandham and other srivaishnava
scriptures. Sandhyavandanum is compulsory for the students. The Sangha and
its students celebrate Thirunakshatryams of Alwars and Acharyas and conduct
CAR festivals.

For poor Srivaishnava boys who are not into studies (about 12 students
currently), there is a Agama Patashala where students are taught to perform
Vaidika Karmas, Agamas, Pancharathragama to help  srivaishnava society.

Started with 8 students in 1989, the demand has risen at a steady pace and
now there are around 40-50 srivaishnava students from rural areas.

with 10 living rooms, dining hall and kitchen, now the hostel accommodates
around 45 students 32 are studying post metric courses and 4 are studying BE
