Siddha Vidyarthies should come to the Siddha Vidya Abhyasalayam daily and practice Siddha Vidya. For practicing it, no special day is necessary. But if it impossible for them to come daily, they should come and have the practice whenever they get leisure. At any rate everyone should come to the Alayam daily except those who are seriously bedridden by the attack of some disease or those who have to live in distant places, away from their permanent residence. But who are tied down by various urgent affairs, should come to the Alayam at least once in a week and have the practice there. Those who are unable to do so, should not be admitted into the Alayam. Those members who are not coming and having the practice at least once in a week should be dismissed from Siddha Vidya Abhyasalayam. But there is no Admission fee and Subscription in order to get admission into the Alayam. If any expenditure is to be met, it should be fulfilled by raising according to the ability of each members as determined in the Alayam. Siddha Vidya Abhyasalayam is established in order to Avoid bad conduct, bad speech, bad company etc., inherit good conduct, good speech, good company etc., make to get upward motion ( Urdhvagathi) to Jeeva, attain all good qualities and become good Visesha Jnanis ( Men of Divine Knowledge ). Those who are saying objection or obstruction to do so are people who dislike to do Iswara seva and who are devoide of the grace of God (Isware preethi).
