“Pidi ArisiThittam” was started by Sri Kanchi Periyava Sri Sri Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi on March 10, 1966. It was a scheme where every household sets aside just a handful of rice every day that would be collected once a week, and distributed to the Patashalas.
A Similar Initiative has been suggested by Sri Sri Sri Bala Periyava, our Acharya of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, and we invite all to participate and make it a grand success.
Instead of rice, devotees are requested to contribute as little as $1 per day per family member towards Veda Rakshanam. The contributions will be donated to the Veda Patashalas under the auspices of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam.
