Sri Sankarshana Wodeyaru is the first saint to write commentary on Harikatha amritha saaraa and its the most extensive tika.He had taken avatara specially to write a tika on the Harikathaamritha saaraa. The brindavana of this holy saint is at Polur in Tamilnadu.
My relative&well wisher Sri.N.L.Thirumal Rao(Secretary of Sri Sankarshana Wodeyaru Moola brindhavana seva samithi,Polur) had sent me an appeal which is attached with this post.
Request you all to come forward and do contribute for this noble cause.
Kindly note the below UPDATED information regarding the appeal:
Even now there is a small room where Sri Sri Sankarshana Wodeyaru was in penance. Several parts of the choultry are in damaged condition despite the best efforts taken by the samithi and the individuals to upkeep it. They have exhausted all financial sources.Recently after the aradhane on the 16,17 and 18th December 2012 the roof of the kitchen of the choultry collapsed due to the rains, about a week back. The kitchen was used to prepare Teertha prasadha to the devotees on the Aradhane days. In olden days this was used to prepare food for the disciplies of Sri Sri Sankarshana Wodeyaru whose diet was only puffed rice only.
The renovation work for the kitchen and linked areas only would cost around 4 to 6 lakhs (750 sq) and the renovation for the entire building would cost Rs. 25 lakhs. To meet the expenditure the samithi made an appeal (enclosed word file) to the devotees who came to the aradhana by giving the handouts. This work will be started by April 2013 or even earlier.
I request you to kindly pass on this message to your madhwa relatives and friends with a request to contribute their donations to the account given in the pamphlet. We are interested in retaining the building where the saint lived and was in penance and in no case the building goes to ruins. His contribution to the Madhwa society is priceless. Expecting your valuable help.
APPEAL FOR ALL DEVOTEES TO CONTRIBUTE TO RENOVATE THE CHOULTRY.
