About the Sabha

Singapore Dakshina Bharatha Brahmana Sabha (SDBBS) was formed in 1924 to fulfill primarily the religious needs of the small Brahmin community. The Sabha also provided an avenue for the members to interact socially. The Sabha was formally registered in 1949 under Societies Act when its activities were revived after a brief period of disruption during World War II.

Sabha's Sadhabhishegam was celebrated during the period 2004-2005.

SDBBS has been one of the pioneer organizations of its kind to be established in this part of the world. The Sabha has regular events all round the year, engaging in promoting Vedic culture amongst people all over the country and abroad. Activities include organising pujas for various festivities and occasions, conducting Veda classes, promoting arts and involving in public services by rendering assistance to several organisations and temples. Sabha is also building the spirit among the young to carry on the legacy and safeguard the culture.

It is heartening to note that from a humble beginning with a handful number of members in Singapore, Sabha has witnessed a steady increase in its membership all these years. The steadfast support from the members has kept Sabha's activities growing in multifarious ways. There is always a great demand from the many temples in Singapore to provide assistance to their religious events like Laksharchana, Koti archana, Maha Rudram, etc.

The Sabha employs well-qualified Purohiths from India to assist the members in performing various Poojas, rituals or ceremonies either at their residence or business premises or in a public place. The purohiths also conduct regular Vedha and Sloka classes, which are quite popular and are now being held at various centres in Singapore. The purohiths also provide Vaideeka assistance to members residing in neighbouring countries such as Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia

Major events of the Sabha are Sastha Preethi - held ususally on January 1st every year, Chandi Homam and Krithika Mandala Vedha Parayanam. Aadi & Thai Velli Poojas, Pournami poojas, Surya Namaskaram on Aavani Sundays, Sri Rama Navami, Maha Sivarathiri are some of the other regular events held. The Krithika Mandala Vedha Parayanam is hosted and conducted at the residences of 44 members, every year. Under Education Merit Award Scheme, children of the members who have achieved excellence in the landmark examinations, such as PSLE, GCE-O, GCE-A, Polytechnic or University level, are honoured at the annual Sastha Preethi function.
