An earnest appeal from Dr. Justice AR. Lakshmanan
“ I ,as the chairman of the Renovation Committee and the Founder Trustee/ President of the Ariyakkudi Srinivsa Perumal Trust earnestly make an appeal to all devotees of Lord Venkateswara to donate liberally to this noble cause, the Consecration of this temple scheduled to be held on Monday the 26th march 2018.
A few words for your consideration: The HR & CE the arm of the Tamilnadu Government to look after the affairs of the Hindu temples prepared a chart of the olden temples in Tamilnadu. After examination of historical records they have found that Ariyakkudi Srinivasa Perumal temple was built in the 17th century. The Archeological Department of India by carefully examining the historical evidence has fixed the date of this temple to be more than 200 years ago. Whatever the date of temple be, I bring to your kind notice that it was built by a single and single-minded person in those olden days who put in all his might to build a temple to Almighty Srinivasa Perumal.
His birth as a Saivite did not deter his zeal to worship Venkateswara of the just opposite Vishnu tradition and more to build a huge temple for him. The fact that the hamlet is called Ariyakkudi meaning the aboard of Hari might have had an impact on his ardent devotion. His devotion to Thirumala temple was duly recognized by the Thirumala temple authorities.
They donated the Utsav Moorthy worshiped by the great Saint Ramanuja himself and the sadari to this temple. Such was the bakthi and devotion of the man. I am reminded of the quotation of Dr. Einstein, the greatest scientist “The history of mankind written with a western beginning should have an eastern end”. He means we have to turn all our heads to the east, finally , to bow before God. Temples are the places where He dwells to bless His devotees.
With these few words I once again appeal to all the devotees to donate liberally. The donations are exempted u/s 80G(2)b of the Incometax Act.
