It is the bounden duty of us as parents and teachers to influence the youth, and to initiate them into the Saiva cultural and social values by practices such as the singing of Thirumuraihal – Divine hymns – in our temples and homes. We propose that all Temples should consider securing the services of a resident Othuvar to promote Thirumuraihal during worship.
