Srivari Seva or Voluntary Service | Sri Balaji, Malayappa Swami, Tirupati Thimmappa

Sri Venkateswara Swamy Voluntary Service:

The richness of Hindu Sanatana Dharma is that it preaches “Manava Sevaye Madhava Seva” which means “Service to Humanity is Service to Divinity”.

Illustrious acharyas like Tirumala Nambi, Ramanjuacharya, Ananthalvar many other dedicated their lives in the service of people thereby possessing the heavenly mukthi.

The concept of Srivari Seva has been derived out of this noble thought by TTD and was introduced in the year 2000 with an aim to serve the pilgrims who throng Tirumala from far flung places to have darshan to Lord Venkateshwara.

Began with just 200 Srivari Sevaks in the initial days, so far nearly five lakh Srivari Sevakuku have rendered impeccable services to the fellow pilgrims in their 14-long year of journey scince its inception.

Apart from Andhra Pradesh Srivari Sevakuku also hail from the states of Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal, Maharastra, Orissa, New Delhi, Chattisgarh and Jarkhand.

On any given day not less than 100 sevakulu will be service while during festival and vacation seasons this figure triples.
