This fund is strictly for the upkeep and maintenance of the Pathupatheeswara Temple in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, its pujas, festivals and immediate grounds, at the discretion of the trustees of Saiva Siddhanta Church. Should the temple have been destroyed during the Sri Lanka war, then funds will be retained and reinvested until such time as the temple is rebuilt.
Inpah is here in Alaveddy with her aunt and uncle at the Pasupateeswarar Sivan Koyil that is on the Subramuniya Ashram Land in Alaveddy not far from the Kumbhalavai Ganesha temple. The temple is on the land where Gurudeva started his first mission years ago after meeting Yogaswami. The Subramuniya Ashram buildings did not survive the war, but we still hold the land and have supported pujas at this temple for decades.
Our dear Mrs. Sivayogam, former trustee of Saiva Siddhanta Church, Sri Lanka, passed away in 2010 and the tall lady in the back, Mrs. Padmanathan is the new Sri Lankan Trustee for Saiva Siddhanta Church, Sri Lanka, and oversees the temple activities.
