Kailasa Peedam Gift Fund




Bodhinatha met for an all-day conference on July 16, 2011 with 50 Sivachariyar priests and students, including 15 of the most prominent Sivachariyar of Tamil Nadu. The event started at 8:30 with the lighting of the lamp by Bodhinatha, then a short introduction to the day by Arumuganathswami and a talk by Bodhinatha on why he wanted to digitize the Agama scriptures now housed at the French Institute of Pondicherry and the French School of the Far East. Arumuganathaswami then explained the process starting in 2004 to get permission to access the collection, which finally came to fruition four years later in December of 2008. The project commenced and was completed 2 and 1/2 years later, photographing 10,000 palm leaf manuscripts for a total of 850,000 photos. The English talks were translated in Tamil since most of priest can’t understand English. Each of the Sivachariyars were given one of the hard drives.
