Tirupati, 31 January 2014: Hindu Sanatana Dharma Prachara need to be taken up from the grass root level and to reach this ambitious goal there is need to chalk out an yearly action plan to train up the members of Dharma Prachara Mandalis, said TTD Tirupati JEO Sri P Bhaskar.

Addressing the awareness programme for the members of Dharma Prachara Mandalis who hailed from different districts of the state in SVETA on Friday, he suggested some guidelines for the efficient way of taking up Dharma Prachara even in remote villages.

As a part of it, the JEO suggested that some devotees who are willing to render selfless services to achieve the noble mission mulled by TTDshould be selected from village level. “Four or five villages should be pooled up to form a division. These members will be known as Dharma Pracharakas”, he added.

He said, one or two members from each village will be later selected to be members in Dharma Prachara Mandalis. Special training on Hindu Sanatana Dharma, festivals, norms etc. will be imparted to these members with the help of a book let – “Dharma Prachara Karadeepika” which will be distributed to them during training session.

Apart from this, he said TTD is also contemplating to organise yagas in all the distict head quarters and will be bringing out another book let “Yaga Darshini” to explain the significane of these havan.

The JEO also said, with an aim to give an opportunity to the young talented artistes to perform on Nada Neerajanam plat form in Tirumala, TTD is contemplating to conduct a competition by name “Kala Neerajanam” to select the youth.

“We are also planning to explain the significance of each and every ritual that is being performed in the temple of Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala with scholarly persons viz. Brahmasri Koteswara Rao”, he added.
