Singapore Dakshina Bharata Brahmana Sabha

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.
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.
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.
