Sathyanarayana Tours and Religious Services

Dear Yathrighas:

We at STARS wish you all auspiciousness throughout the Manmatha Varusham. Let us pray to Divayadampathis to shower their choicest blessings to you all.

As you are aware, Akshaya Thrithiyay 2015 marks the beginning of our Eleventh year of operations (successful completion of a Decade) , since the day of April 2004, when we started our maiden Divyadesa Yathra visit to Chozha Naattu Thirupathigal.

At the outset, we would like to thank you all for the confidence and trust you have reposed on us and without your confidence in our services, our story would not have been so successful in these 10 years of operations.

Through the years, we have continued to appreciate the goodwill of Yathrighas such as you and it is the time to recognize and thank the valued Yathrighas who have expressed confidence in us.

You all have travelled with us as part of STARS family and at times corrected us; shared your concerns; and your needs with us. You have also passed our name on to your friends, relatives, neighbours and colleagues. How could we ask for more? And for that, we owe you a great deal of appreciation. Once again thank you so much for contributing to our success.

As we move into next year, it seems appropriate to take a pause and reflect.

The contribution from Yathrighas like you helped us to carry out the various kainkaryam such as –

1. Vastrams to Patasala Students, Teaching & Non-Teaching Staff of Srirangam Srimad Andavan Ashram Patasala (8 Branches);

2. Swami Dayananda Saraswathi Agama & Veda Patasala (Kodavasal & Manjakudi);

3. Kainkaryapara (Bhatters & Office staff) of Ahobila Shetram

4. Distribution of Mangalya Saradu at 10 different Divyadesams and 6 kshethrams around Chennai at free of cost.

5. Rice / Provision for various utsavams at Temples.

The above mentioned kainkaryams are done primarily because of the active support of the Yathrighas and abhimanis of STARS and would like to thank them for their continued support.

Infact, we would like to distribute vasthirams to the Vidyarthis and teachers of many other Agama / Veda Patasalas across the Country. We would be able to achieve the noble task and let us wish & pray the almighty to give us strength to engage in greater kainkaryam to Lord in the year ahead.

As regards this portal, this was started with the idea that we want to give more information on Divyadesams & Sampradayam related information and we shall update you with the free flow of information in the coming days.

We strongly believe that there is still plenty of room to grow; we will keep on listening to your needs, as we will never forget, that your ideas have helped keep us on target. We pledge to you our continued efforts to improve our service to you. That is our commitment to your interest and support.

As you all aware, we will be entering in to the 11th Year of Service and would like to widen our services by including more programs, which will be liked by you all.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Yathrighas, Volunteers, and various other agencies that have helped STARS to go from strength to strength over the past 10 years.

We do hope that you enjoy the travel and company of us. Should you have any comments or suggestions, you can always get in touch with us at - starsindiaorg@gmail.com

With your support, we plan to keep on growing to serve you better.

Sarvam Sri Krishnarpanamasthu !!!
