On 10th March 1966, Kanchi Periyava  Sri Sri Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi started  “Pidi Arisi Thittam”, where every household sets aside just a handful of rice every day that would be collected once a week, 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 25¢ per day per family member towards Veda Rakshanam. The contributions will be donated to the Veda Patashalas under the auspices of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam.
