The meeting came out with some important decisions of how to take up the Dharmic activities to the grass root level to enlighten the people living remote, tribal and dalit wadas. Some excerpts:
The services of Dalits, Tribes and Fishermen who are underwent training in priesthood under TTD guidance should be utilised in a proper way in all the hamlets, coastal areas and remote villages.
Adhyatmika Sikshana Kendralu-Spiritual Training Centres should be set up in every village to propagate dharma.
The construction of new temples should be taken up in Dalitwadas to enlighten the locals.
A conference should be conducted with Maladasarulu-a sect of tribes so that their services can be utilised to enlighten rural masses.
The mike sets, idols, umbrellas and other Puja items should be given at subsidised rates to the temples in rural areas so that they can conduct spiritual activities on regular basis.
The Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad (HDPP) wing of TTD should enhance its dharmic activities in rural areas. To successfully implement all the above said activities the council opinioned to constitute an exclusive committee.
Apart from these, the council also appreciated the idea of free distribution of spiritual books in the name of “Pustaka Prasadam” by TTD and suggested to continue the same in future. “We should also give set of spiritual books on Hindu Sanatana Dharma to the popular persons who would be often touring foreign countries so that they can propagate our dharma abroad also”, the CDAC chief expressed.
The council also strongly felt the need to telecast only Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel in Tirumala so that it will act as a medium to take up Hindu Sanatana Dharma in a wide spread manner.
