KARTHIKA DEEPOTSAVAM POSTPONED
Tirumala, 4 November 2014: The Karthika Parva Deepotsavam which is scheduled for 6th of this month in Tirumala Srivari temple has been postponed to 6th of December.
On November 6, following the auspicious Karthika Pournami, Garuda Seva will be observed in Tirumala from 7pm to 9pm. But Karthika Deepotsavam has been cancelled as the day lunar cycle of asterism. But usually the agamas advocates that all the rituals and special festivities in Tirumala follow Solar cycle.
Following this, under the guidance of Tirumala Peddajiyangar, TTD has postponed Karthika Deepotsavam to December 6 which falls in Solar cycle.
Meanwhile the Karthika Vanabhojanam will take place at Paruveta Mandapam on 9th of November.
