Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), an independent trust which manages the world famous Tirumala Venkateswara Temple at Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh in India, on the request of scores of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) announced that it will soon be taking up classes on Hindu Sanatana Dharma to the children of NRIs, said Tirupati Joint Executive Officer Sri B.Lakshmikantham.
During a recent visit to Abu Dhabi, the JEO received numerous requests from NRIs in Middle East state to train their children in Sanatana Dharma.
Sanatana Dharma is the term used to denote the “eternal” or absolute set of duties or religiously ordained practices incumbent upon all Hindus, regardless of class, caste, or a section.
Lakshmikantham addressing the media said: “So we are chalking out some action plan on this. In the months of June, July we will send our expert scholars to foreign countries to train our NRI children in tenets of Hindu Dharma, Chaturveda, Ramayana and Mahabharata epics.”
The JEO also said he will try his best to solve the issues pertaining to all 48 temples present across the country under the umbrella of TTD by visiting all of them.
The temple is visited by about 50,000 to 100,000 pilgrims daily, taking the count to 30 to 40 million people annually on average, while on special occasions and festivals, the number of pilgrims shoots up to 500,000, making it the most-visited holy place in the world.
