Lord Sri Venkateswara is Swayambhu, self-manifest.
Lord’s image is not carved by either humans or gods.
Lord SrimanNarayana Himself took the form of a sila
murthi to bless us all in this Kaliyug.
The Supreme Lord Srimannarayana manifests in
five aspects. They are PARA (the transcendent), Vyuha
(the emanating),Vibhava (the immanent)Antaryami and
lastly the Archavathara (the form of consecrated image).
The first one Para Rupa is Lord SrimanNarayana in
Vaikuntha seated on Adisesha. In this form He is
available only for free souls such as ananta, garuda,
sudarsana etc.called Nitya-suris. No one else, even
Devathas can not approach him in Para Roopa.
=========================================
And the fifth aspect is Archavathara. It is in this
form He is available to all of us. Lord Srimannarayana
takes the form of an idol so that it is easy for all of
us to worship him. Archavathara again has many aspects
such as divya, manusha, siddha, swayam vyaktha…if the
idol of the lord is consecrated by gods it is Divya…if it
is installed by humans it is called manusha…Swayam
Vyaktha is the supreme among all these as it is the
form in which Lord Himself manifests…He is
consecrated by neither humans nor devathas…Lord
himself takes the form He wishes to bless His devotees.
So Thirumala come under this aspect of
Archavatar. In Thirumala thus Lord SrimanNarayana
Himself is manifest to redeem all of us from miseries

***The Camphor Dot on Lord Venkateswara’s Chin***

***The Camphor Dot on Lord Venkateswara’s Chin***
***BHAKTA BATSAL GOD BALAJI LORD VENKATESWARA***
 Bhagavan bhaktiyuktena krtan ajnana samyutan
Dosan Sahati yasmatte priyas tasya mahatmanam
(God is not only pleased by the worship done by His steadfast devotee, but also by the innocent mistakes of the
devotee. He works to design the mistake into a pleasant gesture and glorify the honor of His devotee. )
The
story of ananthALvAn (Ananthaalvaan) , which took place during the 11th century CE (Common Era), depicts
the unique love and care of God towards His devotees.
In the olden days, there was a thick forest around the seven hills of Tirumala–Tirupati. Even the steps leading
to the hill were not at all good. Recently, they were set right and more convenient means are available. Earlier,
the priests used to go to the Temple on foot every morning. They used to return home at night. They used to
carry the deity’s ornaments with them and bring them back. Even the Naivedyam (food-offering ) was taken
from the foot of the hill daily. In those days, none used to stay on the hill.
Bhaghavath Ramanuja Acharya (1017-1137) ordained that a flower garden be raised on the hill and its flowers
to be used for decorating Sri Venkateswara Swami. Besides that, the Acharya made arrangements for the
priests to reside on the hill so that the Temple could be in a sanctified atmosphere with continual chanting of
Veda Mantras charged with spiritual power. From then onwards, it became very convenient for priests,
avoiding daily trips to and from their homes.
Bhaghavath Ramanuja Acharya had a disciple called ananthALvAn. ananthALvAn was highly reputed as a
kind hearted person (parama sAdhu). The Acharya ordained ananthALvAn to serve Lord Venkateswara
Swami. ALvAn said, “I will stay on the hill. I will raise a flower garden for the Alankara Seva (decoration
service)”. Everyone was happy.
ananthALvAn and his wife started to dig a tank for supplying water to the flower garden. He used to dig the
soil with a pick-axe and his wife used to remove the soil to throw it a little away. One day Sri Venkateswara
Swami came there in the disguise of a boy and said, “Sir! Let me also serve a little”. ALvAn said “Sorry! In
obedience to the Acharya’s order, only we two must do this work” and sent the boy away. Then the boy went
to the wife of ALvAn and asked her, “At least you give me a chance to serve.” She consented and said,
“Unseen by my husband, throw away the soil behind these trees.” She was in a stage of advanced pregnancy.
Whenever the boy took the basket full of soil, her pain reduced. ALvAn observed that the boy was carrying
the soil. He thought that he failed in performing his self-duty (Svadharma) and said angrily, “When I refused
to accept your service, you approached and convinced her” and struck the boy with the pick-axe in haste.
There was a bleeding injury on the boy’s chin. Astonished by this incident, aLvAn dropped the pick-axe and
approached the little boy. Before ALvAn could reach the little boy, he ran and entered into the Temple in
counter-clockwise direction (apradakshina mArgam). ALvAn was repenting for his cruel behaviour.
The next day, the priests were upset looking at the bleeding chin of the idol. Then they heard the oracle of God
(asherira vani), “I myself went to the flower garden. Do not worry. Ask anantALvAn to apply camphor
(KaRpUram) to this wound. The wound will heal but there will be a scar on me. As Srivatsam indicates the
place and presence of Sri Alamelumanga Devi, the camphor dot on my chin reminds ananthALvAn. This
incident happened with my influence (Maya).” Knowing this, ALvAn felt very sad and said, “Oh! I could not
recognise the Lord and injured Him.” Then he went into the Temple and applied camphor to the chin of Sri
Venkateswara Swami. The scar impression is developed on original Idol of Lord Venkateswara Swami. From
that time onwards, the scar on the chin of the Lord is decorated everyday with camphor. Thus the camphor
dot application gained elements of divinity and eternity. The pick-axe is preserved and displayed in the
Temple premises.
This kind of deeds earned God several titles as “Bhakta Vatsala”, “Bhagavatha Priya” etc. ananthALvAn
earned the grace of God through pure devotion. This incident fascinated poets of later age. Sriman Srishaila
Srirangaacharyar quoted this divine event in his composition, Sri Srinivasa Gadyam:
“… Arya dhurya anatharya pavithra kanithra paatha
paathrikruta nija chubuka vrana kina
vhibushana vahana suchita shritha jana vatsala atishayaha”
(Lord! You received a real bleeding injury when highly revered ananthALvAn struck you with sacred pickaxe
on your chin. You bore the pain of the injury with great patience. And you decorated the scar as an
ornament, indicating that you accepted the pain as a pleasant offering. You did this to bring reverence and
divine glory to your devotee. Just like a cow would care for her calf (Vathsa), you took care of your devotee’s
reputation.)
Sri Annamacharya (1408-1503), the first Vaggeyakara, analysed the stories of Sri Venkateswara Swami’s
devotees. Realising the abundance of grace the Lord bestowed on his devotees, he composed the famous
Sankeertanam, “koNDalalO…” (rAgam—hindOLam; tALam—Adi).
Pallavi: koNDalalO nelakonna kOnETi rAyaDu vADu
koNDalanta varamulu guppeDu vADu
Charanam1: kummara dAsuDaina kuruvarati nambi
immanna varamulella iccina vADu
dommulu cEsinayaTTi toNDamAn cakkuravarti
rammanna cOTiki vacci nammina vADu
Charanam 2: accapu vEDukatO anantALuvAriki

Charanam 3: kancilOna nuNDa tirukaccinambi mIda
karuNinci tanayeDaku rappincina vADu
enca yekkuDaina venkaTEsuDu manalaku
mancivADai karuNa pAlincina vADu
(You derived pleasure by deciding to volunteer yourself for ananthALvAn’s project. You carried soil and
earned an injury on your chin as a reward for your free service. This is your divine play and an example of
abundant grace showered on your devotee.)
Similarly, strange customs have crept in the services to the Lord. The food-offering made in earthen pot, the
flower garland, Camphor Arati, and Palanquin procession are some such customs practiced regularly in
Tirumala-Tirupati Temple. The Palanquin procession or ‘back-savAri” is done relating to counter-clockwise
path entrance into the Temple taken by Lord Venkateshwara Swami in the guise of the little boy. The British
rulers observed this custom and called it as “back-savAri.” The legacy of these customs is considered as God’s
boons to his devotees, as a result of their devotional worship.

*****LORD VENKATESHWARA BALAJI*****

     *****LORD VENKATESHWARA (BALAJI*****

Salutations to Lord Vishnu, the sole master of the universe and His presence is ever serene. He reposes on the couch (of Adisesha, the divine serpent), sporting a lotus in His navel. He is the Lord of all Devas, protector of the worlds and all-pervading like the sky. His complexion is like that of the clouds with a very beautiful form. He is the consort of Sri Lakshmi and His eyes are like lotus petals and who is meditated upon by Yogis and is the Lord of the Cosmos
**************************************************************************************
Lord Venkateshwara is a form of Sri Vishnu and one of the Divine Trinity. The name Venkateshwara can be split into three parts in Sanskrit: Ven (sins), kata (destroyer), and ishwara (Supreme Lord). Using this etymology, Venkateshwara refers to the Supreme Lord who destroys sins. He is also known as Balaji, Srinivasa, Perumal, Venkatachalapathy and many other names. The Goddess Lakshmi (Vishnu's consort) resides on the chest of Venkateshwara, and thus He is also known by the epithet Srinivasa (the one in whom Sri resides). The deity is considered the Kali Yuga Varada that is “the boon-granting Lord of Kali Yuga” (the fourth and final age of the Hindu cycle of ages).
His right hand in the form of varada hastham fulfills devotees’ wishes. With His conch he creates the cosmic sound that destroys ignorance and with His Chakram He destroys evil. Lord Venkateswara's eyes are covered, because it is said, that His gaze is so intense, it would scorch the universe.

वेन्कटाद्रि समम् स्तानम् ब्रह्मान्डे नास्ति किन्चन,
वेन्कटेश समो देवो न भुतो न भविश्यति



(1100 BC, Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India, Sanskrit)

Translation - "There is a wonderful uniqueness associated with Lord Venkateswara, and His abode, Venkatadri. There has been and there will be no equivalent to Lord Venkateshwara who is the manifestation of the complete universe itself"

Lord Venkateswara (Balaji) is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu himself. It is believed that he came to reside on the southern bank of Swami Pushkarni, a tank which passes by Tirumala. The seven hills around Tirumala-Tirupati are also known as Sapthagiri after the seven hoods of Sheshnag – the cosmic serpent. The temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatadri. Tirupati is the richest temple in the world today and a great philanthrophic institution.

***Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple ***Legend/Purana of the Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple***

Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple

Legend/Purana of the 

Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple


Once the entitled Maharshi Bhrigu came to visit at Vaikunth to see Lord Vishnu. At the time, the Maharshi entered the Vaikunth, the Lord Mahavishnu was sound asleep. The Maharshi took this as a direct insult and avenged this self-assumed offense with a kick to the chest of Lord Vishnu. The awakened Lord Mahavishu graciously accepted his fault, and afterwards paid proper homage to Maharishi. But the Goddess Lakshmi was a silent spectator to the entire affair. Unable to carry the burden of witnessing the abuse of the Lord Vishnu at the hands of Maharshi Bhrigu, Goddess Lakshmi alighted from Vaikunth, seeking penance in a humble location at Earth near Swarnamukhi river.

After 12 years of hard tapas, she emerged from the Golden Lotus on the 13th year on Panchami day during the last fortnight of Karteeka month. At this time the bright Uttarashadha Nakshatra was shining towards the earth. Here the Goddess Lakshmi was reincarnated as a Divine Child, capturing the King Akashraja who took here as a daughter and naming her after the Lotus as Sri Padmavathi.

At this time, Lord Maha Vishnu also alighted downwards the Earth, seeking Goddess Maha Lakshmi. As Mahavishnu’s Lord Vekateswara Avatar, he was able to find and marry Sri Padmavathi.From Tirpurati, the Alamelu Mangapuram temple is situated at a comparatively close-by distance of 5 KM. The temple is devoted to the Goddess Padmavathi, the consort of Sri Venkateswara Swamy. Here the Goddess prevails at the glory of the marriage attire of being united to Sri Venkateswara Swamy. This temple is also manifested in the significance of femininity in the Hindu tradition. It is also a shrine of love between the Lord Mahavishu and Goddess Lakshmi. The temple city of Tirupati, is known for its many temples and compelling architecture. But among these the Sri Tiruchanoor Alamelu Mangapuram temple needs to be compulsorily visited and paid homage, as the Tirupati Darshan gains total fruition only through the blessings from Goddess Padmavathi.

At Alamelu Mangapuram, you can witness important celebrations throughout the year. Some of them are famous Devi festivals while some are special occasions dedicated to the Purna of Alamelu Mangapuram temple.

  • During the Navarathri Festival (Dussehra), the Alamelu Mangapuram temple also takes part in the nationwide celebration of good over Evil.

  • At the Kartheeka month festival, the Lord presents precious gifts to his beloved. During this time the lord sends costly sari, blouse piece, holy tulsi, turmeric leaves and exquisite delicacies offering birthday presents to the Goddess Padmavathi atop a splendidly decorated Elephant. This is followed with a celebrated procession in an ivory palanquin for a holy bath in Padma Sarovar.

  • The Theppotsavam (boat festival) is an important celebration, which occurs in the five days during the month of Jyeshtha month (June month).

  •  Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple and Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple are historically interconnected and conditional on each other. During the festival of Vasanthotsavam, we devotee's celebrate this with the procession atop the golden chariot during the 2nd day of the festival.

  • The festival of Sri Padmavathi Parinayam is held during Navami, Dasami and Ekadasi in the month of Vaisaka month. During the three-day festival, the majestically decorated idol of Sri Malayappa Swamy of Lord Venkateswara, arrives in grand style on the Gaja vahanam, Aswa vahanam and Garuda Vahanam on the three consecutive days.

***A DEVOTEES DIVINE DREAM AFTER DARSHAN OF LORD SRI VENKATESWARA***

***A DEVOTEES DIVINE DREAM AFTER
DARSHAN OF LORD SRI VENKATESWARA***


A holy Dream vision which made me realize how much the GOD responds to the devotion we show on Him :
We all came back to room around 4.30 A.M after having tea, Took bath and slept. I hugged the holy Sai satcharitra book on my chest friends. I was too tired and slept nicely. The surprise was the dream I had ..

In the dream I saw this..

I saw a small temple…Its like temple inside which we can only keep idol of God and cannot enter. I mean to say it was like small temple some people construct in house. The temple had Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy beautifully shining with all his glory.

A priest is showing lamps, Aaarti to Lord Venkateswara Swamy.

Suddenly i hear a voice,

“Crores of devotees comes to see me and today I am opening my eyes to see you “
As soon as i heared this voice, I saw

Lord Sri Venkateswara opening his eyes, It was not a ordinary way of simply opening friends. It was as if his eyes were twinkling and like a flash light , he opened his eyes for a moment, closed it in fraction of second, again the eyes were opened. It was like a divine play of Lord Sri Venkateswara. Even when i write this i could feel how little we humans ask only for materialistic benefits from Venkateswara but the God on other hand responds for our devotion by giving a dream to even a very ordinary person like me.

Then while Sri Venkateswara swamy was opening his eyes , i am taking the aarti and showing to the Lord with such happiness i can’t write in words.

After few minutes, I woke up and can remember this dream very clearly.

I remembered something I saw last evening,

We went to meet a bank officer as soon as we reached Tirupati . He had a poster on his table with the photo of sri venkateswara swamy and a wonderful wordings

“Its not the Darshan you Get – Its the darshan He gives ”

How beautiful and meaningful is this sacred words friends. We all say we had darshan of God when we go to any temple but in true sense, its the darshan the god gives us out of love on us.

The dream I had was so touching that I felt my life will have a positive turn from then on… That day , we had good darshan of LORD Venkateswara and i thanked Swamy for blessing me with such a dream.
