Addressing the valedictory session of the 27th Veda Agama Sastra Vidwat Sadas in Dharmagiri Veda Vignana Peetham on Thursday evening, the EO said, TTD being the custodian of country’s richest temple of Lord Venkateswara is committed towards bringing the past glory to the immortal sacred language of the world.
SEVEN TOPPERS GIVEN BENEFITS OF VEDA PARAYANAM SCHEME
“Today I have come to know that out of 219 students who took part in the Vidwat exams, 146 passed out of which 90 stood in first class and the rest in second class. I appreciate all the students of different categories of vedic studies. As a token, We have decided to provide financial aid to the toppers of Divya Prabandha, Rigveda, Adharvana Veda Koutuma sakha, Krishna Yajurveda Maitrayaniya, Krishna Yajurveda Taittiriya, Sukla Yajurveda, Sama Veda divisions under Veda Parayanadar Scheme and also will utilise their services as faculty in respective areas in future”, he added.
