Srirangam Srimad Andavan Ashramam

Srirangam Srimad Andavan Ashram was established nearly 325 years back for the propagation of the Vasishtadhvaitham philosophy as propagated by Sri Bhagavad Ramanuja and Sri Nikamantha Maha Desika. There have been eleven peetathipathies adorning this Ashramam (including the present Andavan Sri Rangaramanuja Maha Desikan also known as Srimushnam Andavan). The ashramam is engaged in many activities like renovation of old temples, publications of granthas, feeding poor people, offering Annathanam to pilgrims at various temples. In addition to this the ashramam runs Vedapatasalas for impacting Vedic knowledge and preparing Acharyas and Pandits in Vedas, Aaghamam, Purana and Sastras.
