Educational Institutions of Sri Lalitha Mahila Samajam
Welcome to “Sri Lalitha Higher Secondary School” which is situated inside the divine ashram namely “Sri Lalitha Mahila Samajam”. The ashram is at the foothills Thirueengoimalai Village near the adjacent town Musiri. The village is religiously important for so may divine reasons, such as the mountain, west to the ashram is having the temple for Lord Shiva, called as Sri Maragathachaleswarar.
Sri Lalitha Mahila Samajam was founded in the year of 1947, then registered by 1954 by the Guru Poojyasri Advayananda Swamiji (who is the disciple of Sri Great Sivananda Guruji) and then the successor Sri Mathaji Yogini Srividyamba Saraswathi has taken over the charges as Guru Matha for the Ashram.
Ashram – A Home to the helpless Children
An orphanage was established for the orphaned female children in the year 1980. This home takes care of even the blind and handicapped children. We started the orphanage with 25 children and now we have more then 150 children residing in the home. The classes are from 1st to the 10th standard and only 50 children receive the aid from the social welfare department. The rest of the 100 children are given free food, clothing, education, accommodation, books and all the other things annually by the samajam. Those who wish to study further in the higher secondary schools are encouraged. To and fro transport facilities are given to them within a distance of 5kms..
Every month a doctor comes to the samajam to check up the children with medical problems. The students are taught stitching and weaving. Good moral stories are told to the children, bhajans and keerthanas are taught to them in addition to yoga and meditation. On Saturdays and Sundays only they are allowed to watch Television shows, and the children play games. Once in a year the children are taken on excursions to different places. To maintain and cook for the children we have appointed 1 supervisor 3 house mothers, 2 cooks and 3 helpers. There are 2 more cleaners to keep the hostel neat and clean. Social service to the humanity is the fountain of joy to the yoginees. We are building an additional residency hall for Nikethan children.
Who ever wishes to educate and support one or more children are kindly requested to do the needful. We would be grateful if good generous souls extend their helping hands for this noble social cause, cost of sponsoring each child per year is given below.
