We need your continued support to the Oduvar project which is supporting currently 24 Oduvars who are serving at various temples in Tamilnadu and are also teaching the Thevārams in their local communities. We have also initiated conducting Divya prabandha bhajans. One such event was held in Kovilpatti before the COVID-19 pandemic. This will resume soon once the pandemic is behind us.
