Shri Maha Sasthru Seva Sangam was started by a group of youngsters who met at a single point - Devotion, under the able leadership of Mahasasthru Priyadasan Shri. V. Aravind Subramanyam, with the blessings of Gurunathar Shri C.V.
Srinivasa Iyer. We have been conducting various Poojas and Sampradaya Sastha Preethi Utsavams in praise of Lord Ayyappa, since 2009. What started as a half a day Pooja has manifested into a 3-day Grand Event, bringing Sabarimala to Kovai, during
our 10th Year Celebrations in 2018. Each year, a special Pooja is conducted along with Sastha Preethi. Poojas like Maha Sastha Ashtotra Santharpanai, Maha Sastha Bhuvaneshwara Samrajya Pattabhishekam, Kiratha Maha Rudram, Ashta Sastha Pooja, Maha
