TIRUMALA TIRUPATI DEVASTHANAMS: PRESS RELEASE
Tirumala,Oct 2: In view of the annual brahmotsavams, the Chennai-based Tirupati Umbrella Charities and Hindu Dharmartha Samiti will be donating special umbrellas for Srivari Garuda Seva and the procession will start from Chennai on October 4th and 6th respectively and the umbrellas will reach Tirumala on October 9, on Garuda Seva day.
However it is appealed that the pilgrims and devotees are requested not to offer cash or kind offerings to both Tirupati Umbrella Charities and Hindu Dharmartha Samiti during the procession of holy umbrellas from Chennai to Tirumala since the donations offered by the pilgrims will not be credited in the account of TTD or Srivari Hundi by the said charities.
The Chennai police are also requested to stop the hundi collections if any during procession.
