5:26 PM, Wednesday, October 20th, 2021

KukkeSubrahmanyaMangaluru:  Kukke Sri Subrahmanya Temple, which witnesses a large number of footfalls, will observe Swachhata Day on all Ekadashis.

Under Swachha Mandira Seva Abhiyana, the temple management will carry out swachhata (cleanliness) drives in the afternoon on all Ekadashis with the support of devotees, the temple committee, staff, and NSS/ Scouts units of nearby institutes. More than 1,000 volunteers will clean the temple and the premises of the temple town on Ekadashis in future.

Temples abhiyana was aimed at creating awareness on cleanliness among devotees. “We have launched this scheme by involving the temple staff, students of educational institutions, and other organisations.

Devotees will also be given the opportunity to participate in this swachchata drive as a seva (community service) during Ekadashis. We have already released a calendar of swachchata events to be taken up on Ekadashis till March next year. At least two Ekadashi days are there in a month. On those days, the drive will be held between 2pm and 3.30pm.

At present, devotees offer ‘urulu seve’ at the temple as part of their vows, he said. “In future, this swachchata seve can also be a part of their seves. Besides keeping the temple premises clean, it will also provide an opportunity for devotees to offer voluntary service. The response to the first swachchata campaign, that was held recently, was good. Fisheries minister S Angara and Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar were part of the first drive.
