Anna Chatra has been constructed to prepare food for the participants. A reception office has been opened at Mangaluru Railway Station. Bus arrangements have been made to ferry the participants to the venue.

Necessary security arrangements are in place for the event. A full-fledged parking facility has been arranged at the venue. A team of 1,000 volunteers will be at work to ensure the smooth conduct of the programme. 

Dharma Samsad is being organised on account of decennial celebrations of pattabhisheka of Sri Brahmananda Saraswathi Swami of Sri Gurudeva Mutt. The resolutions passed in the Dharma Samsad will be sent to the government, said Brahmananda Saraswathi Swami in a separate press meet held at Ujire. 

The seer said just like the way Parliament discusses on the national issues, the seers, saints and the religious leaders will discuss the issues pertaining to the Hindu religion.

He said, the seers, sages from all akhadas, Natha panth and Bairagis will be brought under one platform. There is a proposal to form “Rashtriya Loka Kalyan Manch.”
