Who We Are
Srirangam Srimad Andavan Ashramam is an institution that is over three hundred years old, and belongs to the Sri Vaishnava tradition. It follows the teachings of vishishtadvaita, as propounded by Bhagavad Ramanuja and Srimad Vedanta Desika.
The main spiritual headquarter of the Andavan Ashramam is in Srirangam, where most acharyas of this lineage have spent their saintly lives.
The institution has over 35 centres spread across India and the US. The institution also runs the Andavan Arts and Science College, several veda-patasalas, and goshalas.
The main symbol of worship in the Andavan tradition is the divine sandals of Sri Ranganatha known simply as Rangantha-padukas.
What We Do
The Acharya of the Srimad Andavan Ashramam awards initiation to the fold of Srivaishnavism through a ritual called samashrayanam, and conducts sacramental surrender known as bharanyasam.
The institution runs the Srimad Andavan College for Arts and Science to cater to students from rural and backward areas. It also runs several veda-patasalas or seats of traditional learning.
We celebrate several festivals (utsavams) and holy birthdays (thirunakshatrams ) related to the Lord or our acharyas. Thousands of disciples and well-wishers participate in these to seek divine blessings.
The Andavan Ashramam runs many charitable trusts for providing education, preserving the Vedic tradition, publishing books, renovating temples, providing free meals to pilgrims, and protecting cows.
