Tirupathi Sri Srinivasa Perumal at Thiruvallikkeni - nearer Vijay Avenue

For a Srivaishnavaite – thinking of Him, praising Him all the time, going to temples of His, doing services to His bhakthas and associating oneself in any form with various kainkaryams to the  Bhagwan Shri Maha Vishnu are the only real things.   

                    Thirumala Thirupathi Temple – the  sacred and most reverred temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak – Venkatachala hill of Tirumala.  The Lord stands tall as bestower of all boons and lakhs of people reach here to have a glimpse – a few seconds darshan of the Lord.   The holy Thirumala ~ ‘ Seshachalam’  is 853m above sea level and comprises of Seven peaks : Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrushabadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri.  Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam which manages the holy shrine has lot of projects in and outside Thirumala.  Srinivasa Kalyanam is being performed at various places – this Idol is not Swami Malayappar, the processional deity at the holy Thirumala Temple.

Among the various projects, Dasa Sahitya Project propagates and popularises the literature of saint composers of Karnataka, popularly known as Haridasas, who enriched Kannada religious literature with their hymns. Through this project, TTD aims to acquaint people with the lives and teachings of Haridasas, spirituality, righteousness and morals and devotion to Lord Srinivasa in particular. 

Today [5th July 2015], at Thiruvallikkeni TTD Dasa Sahitya Project jointly with TKKNN Vyaya Charities, Shri Bushya Padmanabachar family and Sri Partha Builders organised Sri Srinivasa Uthsavam at the premises nearer Vijay Avenue [ex Sri Parthasarathi swami sabha complex].  Hundreds of devotees had darshan of Perumal this morning. In the evening there would be purappadu, Unjal seva, Sahasra deepalankara seva, pushpa yagna and mangala haarthi.    Here are some photos of the function.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
