There was an article about the President's inauguration of the Tirupati complex of Sri Ahobila Muth in April or May. Mani raised a question as to whether non Brahmins are allowed in this complex. I spoke to Sri Devanathan today who is the secretary to the Jeer as well as the in charge of the Mutt facilities in Hyderabad, Tirupati and Ahobilam. He confirmed that caste is no factor in deciding who can reside at the complex. Anyone is welcome to stay at the Mutt facilities. At the present time guests are not allowed to cook in the mutt facilities. Plans are still being finalized about the method to provide Prasadam to visitors. Currently they have to rely on restaurants or Tirupati temple Prasadam. Jaganath.
