From this weekend, you can request a priest at Sri Kapali Temple to recite prayers for the archanai in Thamizh.
This facility was launched formally on Thursday at the temple and signalled the start of similar services at over 40 state temples.
Of course, this is not really new in the real sense. The current DMK government seems keen to popularise it.
“A set of 14 different ‘potris’ have already been prepared, and the booklets have been distributed to the identified priests. The facility will be expanded to other temples if there is popular demand,” said HR&CE minister P K Sekar Babu at the function in Mylapore.
