Sri Raju who inaugurated the five-day training class to Srivari Seva trainers at SVETA bhavan in Tirupati on Monday in his address called upon the trainers to dedicate themselves in the service of multitude of visiting pilgrims who come to Tirumala from far-flung places of country as well abroad.

There are many service organisations in our country which have become popular through their way of services. The Lord Venkateswara temple of Tirumala has a remarkable place across the world being one of the biggest Hindu Religious Institutions. Similarly in future Srivari Seva should also become one of the best voluntary service organisations not only in the country but also in the world”, he added.
