"Mushti Anna Seva"
Following the Sringeri tradition, there is a simple and and inexpensive way of making donation for Annadanam. Devotees can keep aside one handful (Mushti) of rice every day in their house and keep adding one handful every day. The rice set aside everyday can be donated to the Temple once every month or any convenient intervals. The rice so collected will be used in the Temple kitchen to feed the devotees at important events / special days.
SAREE /VASTRAM DONATIONS
Devotees can donate sarees for Sharadamba or vastram for other deities which will be changed every Friday of the week. Devotees can also specify the date they would like to see Devi wearing the saree/vastram they donated. Devotees can request to take back the only the saree for a small donation which will be informed by the office staff. For administrative and record keeping purposes, every saree/vastram donation should be handed over to the office staff and NOT to the priest directly.For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
