Adiyen (Dr Sreeram Jaganathan) has been teaching (santhai ) the stotras of Swami Desika at home for more than a year now. With the blessings of Lord Hayagreeva and Swami Desika and my Gurus Dr.S.Padmanabhachariar, Srikaryam Swami, Sri Ahobila mutt, and Sri E.S.Mukundachariar of Secunderabad, Sree-Ramanuja-Vidyalaya was inaugurated at our gruham on the 26th of January 2018. The focus of the Vidyalaya is two fold – one is to teach Sanskrit, Stotras, Prabandham and Sampradaya (by adiyen), and Carnatic music (vocal and violin by Smt Anusha Sreeram, adiyen’s dharmapatni).
Though we have been teaching for sometime without any banner or name, the idea of starting Sree-Ramanuja-Vidyalaya occurred sometime last year. It was formally inaugurated by Adiyen’s Guru Dr.S.Padmanabhachariar with his address to the kids. The Kids recited Sri Goda Stuti as a ghoshti and obtained his blessings. The kids who won the competition on Sri Goda Stuti, which was conducted by adiyen earlier, received their prizes from the Srikaryam Swami.

A Trust in the name Sree Ramanuja Vidyalaya was formed on 26th July 2019 by Dr.Sreeram Jaganathan (Managing Trustee), Dr. S.Padmanabhan (Trustee) and Sri. E.S.Mukundan (Trustee) with an idea to reach out to many more kids and adults and to run the classes on a full-fledged basis in a more organised manner. A fulltime modern patashala (for boys) combining Vedic education with modern education has been functioning since the 8th of October 2019. There are two full time students and three part time studnets. Some more full time students are expected to join in April 2020. Next step would to be to extend the patashala for girl children without compromising on the Sanatana dharma injunctions.
Planning is underway to rope in many professionals and teachers to impart education on a variety of topics including ancient Indian languages like Tamil, Sanskrit, Telugu, Kannada etc. A bank account has been opened in the name of the Trust and funds are being collected from noble minds.
