“SRIVARI SEVAKULU ARE BLESSED VOLUNTEERS OF LORD AND GODDESS-TI
November 2014: Describing the Srivari Sevakulu as the blessed volunteers in the divine service chosen by none other than Lord Sri Venkateswara and Goddess Sri Padmavathi Devi, the Tirupati JEO Sri P Bhaskar called up on the volunteers to make use of this God-given opportunity in rendering impeccable services to the multitude of pilgrims with devotion and disciplene.
Addressing the Srivari Sevakulu who came to render voluntary service to the pilgrims for Karthika Brahmotsavams of Goddess Padmavathi Devi at Asthana Mandapam in Tiruchanoor on Wednesday, the JEO said, it is great to see you all to come from far off places to render week-long free services to the visiting pilgrims at your own expenses. “The Srivari Seva has established very well in Tirumala and now we are contemplating to spread this service to all the other shrines located under the purview of TTD. After Tirumala temple, the Tiruchanoor temple occupies the next pride place and there is dire requirement of your selfless services since the pilgrim rush to this famous temple has increased by many folds from the past four years”, he maintained.
The JEO also said, TTD is also contemplating to construct a separate building to accommodate men and women volunteers separately even in Tirupati also on the lines of Tirumala. “We are planning to construct the accommodation centre for women in Tiruchanoor and for male volunteers in Tirupati”, he added.
In his address, VGO of TTD, Tirupati Sri Ravindra Reddy said, Srivari Sevakulu has now become a part of TTD with their outstanding voluntary services. “In future your responsibility may also increase in the wake of recent incidents that are taking place in Tirumala. Every Srivari Sevakudu should become vigilant and should inform the Vigilance office immediately if they come across any suspicious person in Tirumala or in any other TTD-run temple. Protecting Hindu Dharma is also your prime duty apart from rendering free services to pilgrims”, he said.
Meanwhile over 500 srivari sevakulu hailing from the Southern states and also from Maharastra took part in this programme. Special Grade Deputy EO Smt Chenchu Lakshmi, PRO Sri T Ravi were also present.
