"Mother Veda will protect you, do not worry!"

Veda Patashalas needing our help!

Here is a list of Veda Patashalas which are in need of financial assistance. Please do call 

the Srowthigals at the numbers mentioned to get more details. My acquaintance has 

reached out to me to help spread the word. Please do your might to help out.

1) Sama Vedha patasalai

Saraboji Agraharam,


Adhyapakar: Sri Sundara Srowthigal,

Mobile No. +91 9489825418

email address: 

This Veda Patashala was earlier located in Pazhaya Gudalur, near Kuttalam, Mayuram and 

recently shifted to Thiruvenkadu. Has about 10 vidhyarthis.

Spoke to Shri Sundara Srowthigal just a few minutes back. He said he was blessed in the 

sense that his Vedas test was administered by Swamigal Himself in the year 1981 when He 

was camping in Gulbarga, Karnataka in His Satara Vijaya Yatra. Swamigal had given him 

some reward on that occasion! Sri Sundara Srowthigal's online transfer details:

2) Sri Sankara Gurukulam Acharya Vidhya Vidhya Peetam,

79, North Street, Melattur - 614 301

Tanjore District.

Adhyapakar: Sri Thiagaraja Sharma

Mobile: +91 9003428845

About 20 vidhyarthis are studying here. Both Sama and Yajur vedams are taught here. It 

seems that a donor who was taking care of the grocery needs of the Patashala to the tune 

of Rs.14,000/- a month, has suddenly stopped contributing.

I spoke to Shri Thygaraja Sharma just a few minutes back. He said after he completed his 

Veda Adhyayanam at the age of 15, his guru took him to Kanchi Swamigal and told Him 

proudly, "Only this boy in my class has agreed to teach Vedas!"

To which Swamigal replied, " I am very proud of you! Mother Veda will take care of you, 

you do not worry! You have my complete blessings!"

And he started to teach Vedas at the age of 17 to a first batch of 3 boys!

He told me that checks can be drawn in the name of ' Sri Sankara Gurukulam Acharya 

Vidhya Peetam'.

Here are the online transfer details for this Patashala:

A/c.No. 05370100004395
Bank : Bank of Baroda
IFSC: BARB0MELATT (Please note that it is a zero and not the letter O)

3) Thogur Veda Patashala

I just spoke to Shri Makarabhushanam Mama #2 in the list. He told me that Mahaswamigal blessed him to go to his guru's place and start the Veda Patashala, without seeking out money. And that he will be in 'Parama Kshemam'! He has been doing it from 1978.

4) Chidambaram Veda Patashala

Spoke to Shri Sabapathi Dikshidar. He mentioned that they started the Patashala in June 2012 and have 9 students now. He said when he went to Mahaswamigal to get His blessings for his Upanayanam, Swamigal showered His grace by giving him a Poorrnaphalam Matta Thengai and told him, "do your Adhyayanam properly and you will be blessed!".

Please write a check addressed to his father, Shri KM Ganeshamurthi and mail it to

"Had a short conversation with Shri Makarabhushanam mama of Thogur. Some useful details: He has at present six resident vedic students as per our Gurukula system. Each adhyaayi spends an average of 9 years in the Gurukulam to master the Sukthas, Brahmanas and Grihyasutras.

He maintains 11 cows - 7 of which are milk-yielding, in a traditional Goshaala. He uses the milk, dung etc. obtained from the cows tended in the Goshaala only, for all the Gurukulam's needs and doesn't procure them from outside. The cost of feeding these cows averages Rs. 12k per month."
