Ananthalakshmi Natarajan helps them to read the text, and explains the shlokas / text in detail. The Bhagavadgita is also studied regularly. At the end of each jnana yajna (after the study of a particular text is over), Anantham gives public discourses regarding the text at Adarsha Bhavan, Malleshwaram, Bangalore.

Every year during Dasara, this satsanga conducts Suvasini Pooja, Kanyaka pooja and Deepa pooja, after which they distribute clothings and mangala dravyas to a number of girls/ladies and feed approximately 1000 people. They also conduct Sharadamba rathayatra similar to the one being conducted in Sringeri.
