Need for a Memorial?

  • It’s a pity that till mid. 2013, a Memorial did not exist for

Sri Purandara Dasa, the all time great Saint Composer, Social Reformer and Philosopher.

  • Memorial - a necessity to preserve and propagate the PURANDARA philosophy because of rapidly eroding Human values.
  • For Renaissance of the great values the great Saint practised & preached.
  • SPDMT succeeded in building a memorial in 2013 with great resolve & concern, the one & only one of its kind in the World.
