DEVOTEES TO GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO “GO SEVA” ON KANUMA
Tirupati, 7 January 2016: In an innovative move, the temple administration of TTD has offered devotees to render “Go Seva” on the festival day of Kanuma in SV Goshala in Tirupati on Thursday.
TTD is contemplating to celebrate in a big way the “Go Mahotsavam” on the third day of Sankranthi festival on January 16 in Goshala in Tirupati. For the first time, the TTD has mulled an idea to involve devotees also to feed “Go Mata” with jaggery-rice mixed fodder with a noble aim to reinstate among them the importance of worship of cow as “Gomata” in Hindu Sanatana Dharma.
Meanwhile on this auspicious day of Kanuma, the day starts with flute rendition by artistes by 6am followed by Veda Parayanam between 8am and 9am. There will be bhajans by Dasa Sahitya Project artistes from 9am and 10:30am followed by special puja to Sri Venugopala Swamy temple located in the premises. Later cultural programmes will follow till afternoon.
