Anna Danam in Jaffna, Sri Lanka


On the full moon day in May of 1949, when Yogaswami initiated Gurudeva, one of the things Yogaswami told to Gurudeva is "you will feed thousands!" Inspired by Yogaswami's instructions to his successor, the Sri Subramuniya Kottam conducts Anna Dhanams, mass feedings, during festivals and holidays. The following photos were taken during the Maha Sivaratri festival this year.
