1) Shocking Developments in Srirangam Temple
With the advent of Adi Masam, (ashada) a new development has taken in
Srirangam temple,on all fridays considered holy.The Joint commisioner
has abolished Viswaroopam It is against all agamic norms. The
justication stated by the EO is to “make room for sevarthis
uninteruupted darshan from morning 6.00 AM onwards to 10.00 PM”
2) The meaning of Viswaroopam
The Lord who went to symbolic sleep the previous night, has to be
woken up formally with the relevent mantras in viswaroopam,then
request has to be made to him to shower his blessings on the devotees
The Joint Commisioner unilaterally has stopped viswaroopam seva, all
of a sudden which will take about half an hour time.
3) Lord Forced to take prasadams for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner
Similarly on all purtasi saturdays, the pradsadam offered in the
morning is known as pongal , and mid day prasadam is know as ‘peria
avasram’ and evening offering is ‘ksheera annam’ as per the norms
extant .The Present Day Executive Officer is making the lord to eat
all the Breakfast , Lunch and Dinner by five o clock in the morning
all the same in one go. The reason stated is much crowds are expected
during these months, just to have uninteruppted darshan from morning
six to nigt 10.00 Pm.
4) In Thirumala
In Thirumala more than lak of devotess throng everyday. Not on a
single day the Viswaroopa seva, Suprabhata Seva, Thiruppavai seva is
stopped. With less than 30000 devotees visting everyday, why such
rituals have to be be stopped in Srirangam, is a reflection of poor
5) Temples are not commercial vehicles;
Temple are not commercial vehicles to fill the Government coffers.

An Appeal for Funds
At the Thirukkurungudi Nambirayar Temple, in the month of June, 2004 the Siva Idol known as “Pakkam Nindrar” was forcibly removed from the sannithi, and the sannithi buildings were demolished. A civil case was filed in the Nanguneri sub-court against the Jeeyar of Thirukkurungudi Mutt (O.S. No. 288/04) to direct him to install the Idol in its original place. The sub court gave the judgement in our favour, and the Jeeyar went on appeal against the judgement delievered by the sub court, to the Chennai High Court Madurai Bench. There also the Jeeyar’s appeal was not considered and Jeeyar was asked on 23.10.2011 to construct the Pakkam Nindrar Sannithi within three months time and install the Idol of Siva.
Eventhough there is no provision in the Law for further appeal they have taken the case to the Supreme Court on some technical grounds. Sri. Venu Srinivasan of the T.V.S. is backing up the case with his liberal flow of money and legal assistance to the Jeeyar. The Jeeyar had acted against all dharmic principles and had gone against the spirit of Thiruman gai Azhwar’s Peria Thirumozhi hymn 9-6-1. by demolishing Sivan Sannadhi. The D.D.P.P.P. for the past seven years has waged the battle against the Thirukkurungudi Jeeyar and Sri Venusrinivasan of T.V.S. group with its limited resources. Inorder to meet the expenses to argue the case with a Senior lawyer, transport expenses, and other incidental expenditure, at the Supreme Court, we need Rs. 3 Lakhs immediately. The case cameup for hearing on 18th July, 2011 and postponed to 16th August 2011.
The Saiva siddhantha sabha represented by Saivaites are contributing Rs. 2 Lakhs to meet the expenditure and we have to contribute Rs. 1 Lakh. We request Sri Vaishnavaites all over the world to contribute substantially towards this noble cause. We cannot afford to lose this case at the Supreme Court as it will amount to evil prevailing over good. The Thirukkurungudi Jeeyar not only did the demolition but also had acted against the wish of his predecessors and Thirumangaiazhwar.
