Training of non-Brahmins for priestly work in Tamil Nadu

The MK Stalin government of Tamil Nadu had recently ordered the appointment of non-Brahmin priests in Hindu temples in the state.

Under the Ministry of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment (HR&CE), 200 non-Brahmin families will be appointed in the Hindu temples of the state in the next 100 days.

The Stalin government of Tamil Nadu will conduct a course called “Shaiva Archaka” for non-Brahmin people, under which non-Brahmin people will be given training in priestly work in a 100-day course.

Apart from this, Stalin will also train the government and women to become priests who are willing to perform priestly work in temples. Minister VK Shekhar said that just as all Hindus can become priests, women can also become priests.
