THE PANANDIKER’S GOVIND PURUS TRUST

APPEAL TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW TEMPLE AT KAVLEM

Warm greetings to all Panandiker’s  and may all be blessed by the grace of our Kuladevi  Shri Shantadurga and Mul Purus Shri Govind Purus.

Last year, a group of Panandikers came together in order to address the concerns of our Purohit Shri. Vinubhat regarding the condition of the current “sthan” (place) situated at Vinubhat’s residence.  It was learnt that the current “linga”(symbolic stone representation of our Purus) and the temple itself were indeed in need of immediate renovation.  An attempt was made to contact and inform all the Panandikers about the condition of the temple.  A large number of Panandiker’s attended the meeting called for by the group, and expressed their concern over the plight of the premises and “linga”.  An action committee was immediately formed to address these concerns and thus the work of deciding the future of our Purus temple began.

We were indeed ecstatic when our Kuladevi gave a decisive “Kaul Prasad” to relocate the temple to a new site. We were further elated when we were granted a “Sthan” next to the water tank by the then existing committee and all the Mahajan’s  of Kavlem Devasthan.  A Trust was formed with 20 settlors, and 8 members were enrolled.  Plans were drawn, permissions were attained in a record period of time.  We now eagerly await the speedy development of the new temple and commence the regular “seva” of our Mul Purus.

Following is the Budgeted/Estimated cost of Construction and Maintenance of the New Govind Purus Temple.

Construction of Temple: Rs. 4 Lakhs

Construction of a part of the Retaining Wall of the tank: Rs. 4 Lakhs

Corpus required to Maintain and Perform regular Pooja : Rs. 6 Lakh

Expenses for Purchase of Linga, Utensils, Lamps including installation costs: Rs. 2 Lakhs

Grand Total: Rs 16 Lakhs

Total contributions received so far from the Panandiker Families is Rs. 4,54,002/-. The shortfall is Rs. 11,45,998. We urge all the Panandiker Families to donate generously to ensure the early construction of the temple.

Regards,

Panandiker’s Govind Purus Trust
