Annadanam

Traditionally offering food to spiritual seekers was considered of the utmost importance which is known as Annadanam. This ancient practice is a spiritual process in itself, and many beings down the ages have attained to wonderful states by offering food to one and all.
You can be a part of this tremendous offering even if you are not able to attend in person – food can be offered on your behalf with your contribution for Annadanam. You can also invite your family and friends to participate in the Annadanam process. Your generous donation will be tax deductible.
