  • Pujyashri Mathioli Saraswathy has returned to Her divine abode

    It is with profound grief, and a deep sense of loss, that we inform you that Pujya Shri Mathioli Saraswathy, "Akka" and "Amma" to many, Founder and Chairwoman of Nandalala Mission and Founder of the Nandalala family of organizations, departed this world for her divine abode, on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 at 9:18am IST in Chennai, India. Her family, devotees and all those who were touched by Her compassion offered their respects at her Chennai residence,  "Jayamalar", located at 1 Visveswarapuram Street, Alwarpet, Chennai between noon to 4. The cremation was on the same day during Pradosham time ( 6:30 pm IST). She has been our beacon and guiding force all these years. She has worked tirelessly to make life better for one and all. She has selflessly provided solace and comfort to everyone in need and taught us there is strength in humility. Conversations with her provided us devotees with an insight into her humor, kindness, linguistic and artistic skills and her knowledge of topics ranging from the vedas to modern science. Despite being an ocean of knowledge, She was a student for life showing us that we are never too old or too knowledgeable to learn. She was a prolific author and provided guidance on a wide range of topics through her books. She loved children deeply, She herself was like a child - curious, energetic, ready to explore the whole wide world and its people. She believed in children as the torchbearers of her legacy and started a children’s club - Nandalala siruvar sangham which has since then blossomed into numerous Nandalala endeavours serving the community in multiple avenues. She was steadfast in continuing her mother Jayalakshmi Patti’s legacy in providing food for all. Through example, She inculcated in us all, a drive to love and serve everyone around us. Many of you have had the opportunity to experience Her grace, compassion and motherly love during her many visits to the US. We hope you will cherish those experiences and treasure those memories in the years to come. We thank you profoundly for your prayers and well wishes over the past few weeks, during her stay in the hospital. The void caused by Her departure cannot be overstated. However, we shall strive to keep Her alive through everything we have learnt from Her over the 77 years She spent in our midst. A "Reflections & Remembrances" event was held in her memory on May 20th, 2018 at "Thulasi" in Santa Clara, CA.  Read more about the event here Please also take the time to read through Pujya Shri Mathioli Saraswathy's promise in the experiences section.

  • Nandalala Youth Concert- By Harish

    The Nandalala youth concerts by Nandalala mission is the first one I have seen in Bay Area which encourages a budding artists and young learners. This is the most valuable platform a learning child artist could gague his/her learning by singing before a moderate audience. The ambience and the stage provided by Nandalala is the right size for a child who wants to start on a musical journey. There is scope for the children to make mistakes and more importantly recover from those mistakes and finish the concert too. What a wonderful platform!!. I have seen many concerts of young children who gave a concert for an hour or more and who later went onto become confident performers in bigger audiences. I have seen more than 10 such kids who reaped the concert beginning benefits. The organizers are very friendly and instill confidence/trust in the young children by their soothing talk and all-familiar-home-kind ambience. The children also get to know about 'service' to human kind through various schemes like school bag drive, lunch packing initiatives to older citizens etc. May Nandalala keep on blessing this organization!!
