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. 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 [25th June 2016], at Thiruvallikkeni TTD Dasa Sahitya Project jointly with TKKNN Vyaya Charities is organising Sri Srinivasa Uthsavam at the premises nearer Vijay Avenue [ex Sri Parthasarathi swami sabha complex]. Hundreds of devotees had darshan of Perumal this morning. There will be Thomala seva, Thirumanjanam followed by Thirukalyanam in the evening around 6 pm.
