Very happy to see your interest in the rama nama bank activities. Crores and
crores of ramanama are being written by devotees - the note books are distributed
free (being donated by others) and those written are submitted back to the bank.
The bank collects these nama books bundles and arranges them ( by putting vasambu
and other herbs powders so that the books will not get infected by termites
etc. then these books are stored in steel cubboards namely "NAMA PETTAGAMS".


Every 100 crores thus collected is kept as darsana pradhishtai in various places
all over India. The collection centre is in Chennai and so the devotees take
these namams to the places by Padha Yathra. They have done the Darsana pradhishtai
in GOVINDAPURAM (a place near Aduthurai - where Sri Bodendra Sadguru Swamigal's
Jeeva samadhi exists), in PARANUR (Sri Sri Krishna Premi Swamigal's Ashram and
near the Baktha Kolahala sannadhi), in PANDARPUR and the last in BADRACHALAM.
All these places are always given by the Agnyai of Sri Sri Anna. 

It is with his guidance and kataksham now, they are planning for the Pancha
Sthal Padha Yathra - reaching Chithrakootam, Prayagai, Kasi, Ayothi and Brindhavanam
on completion of the sahasra koti rama nama legana yagnam. This yatra is starting
from chennai on Nov 2001 and is the yathra is bound for 145 days.

All this has been possible by our Guru Kataksham and by ardent benevolent devotees.
