Sri Lankan HHE Grants for 2008

The boys of Tirunavukarasu Gurukulam, shown here on Pilgrimage in Sri Lanka, have recently received their 2009 annual grant from Hindu Heritage Endowment. The Gurukulam is fund #12. The spiritual centers of South India, the aadheenams, traditionally support Hindu organizations such as temples, orphanages and priest training schools. In ancient times, farm land or shops owned by these monastic-run institutions supplied the revenue for regular charitable assistance for local religious and social activities. In today's world, aadheenam endowments include stocks and bonds. The charitable activities of Kauai's Hindu Monastery are more global than local, and are significant enough to be responsibly overseen by a separate organization, called Hindu Heritage Endowment (HHE), which Gurudeva founded in 1994. The following organizations in Sri Lanka all have endowments with HHE and are sent yearly grants. Grants for 2009 totalled almost seven thousand dollars. The recipients are: Kumbhalavalai Ganesha Temple -- Alaveddy Pasupatheeswarar Temple -- Alaveddy Swami Vipulananta Children's Home -- Batticaloa Tirunavukkarasu Nayanar Gurukulam -- Batticaloa Yogaswami Hindu Boys' Home -- Chenkalady Mahajana College -- Jaffna Yogar Swamigal Thiruvadi Nilayam -- Killinochchi Siva Poomi School -- Kondavil Sri Subramuniya Kottam -- Kopay Yogaswami Hindu Girls' Home -- Sittandy Also receiving a grant from the monastery's charity fund is Sivananda Thapovanam -- Uppuveli.
