RaviKumarKotti
Are there no fixed Pricing system imposed by Temple authorities like in many South Indian Temples to aversion among Hindus on the great rituals of sacred Hindu Dharma just because of those unruly and unethical Pandas. What is a near realistic price for performing the Pinda Pradaan with full devotion and satisfaction (Pandaas not compromising in the performance of sacred ritual). Please guide us to have an idea before one coming to the Sacred Vishnu Pada to perform the Pinda Pradaanam) Regards Ravi Kumar Kotti
