SRIVARU OFFERED HOLY BATH WITH 1008 KALASAS OF PARIMALA THEERTHAM _ హైదరాబాద్ లో శ్రీనివాసునికి శాస్త్రోక్తంగా సహస్ర కలశాభిషేకం
DEVOTEES CHERISH SAHASRA KALASABHISHEKAM
HYDERABAD, 12 OCTOBER 2022: The Devotees had a divine visual of Sahasra Kalasa Abhisheka Seva offered to Sri Bhoga Srinivasa Murthi-the silver replica deity of Mula Virat, at the NTR Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday as part of the ongoing Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavotsavams.
After the morning sevas of Suprabhatam, Tomala, Archana, Koluvu, Nivedana and Sattumora, the unique Sahasra Kalasabhishekam was performed on Wednesday.
Besides the replica of the one-foot tall Bhoga Srinivasa Murty, the replicas of the processional deities of Sri Swamy varu along with his two consorts, Sri Viswaksena-the chief commander of Lord were also rendered the special Abhishekam on the occasion.
According to the temple legend, the idol of Sri Bhoga Srinivas Murthy was consecrated by the Pallava Queen Samavai Perundevi in 614AD and every year, to mark this auspicious occasion, TTD observed Sahasra Kalasabhishekam at Bangaru Vakili. Similar fete was replicated for the sake of devotees at Hyderabad on Wednesday.
SIGNIFICANCE OF SACRED THREAD
A sacred thread has been tied to the Bhoga Srinivasa Murty connecting with the Mula Virat inside the Garbhalayam (sanctum). One end of the rope is tied around the feet of the Bhoga Srinivasa Murthy while the other end is placed near the Kathithasta of the Mula Virat, thus symbolically establishing a relationship between the Main deity and the Bhoga Srinivas Murthy to achieve two purposes. Firstly, it becomes clear that Bhoga Srinivasa is representing the Mula Virat and secondly, it makes clear that the Pooja offered to the Bhoga Srinivasa Murthy is nothing but the puja is assumed to have offered to the main deity also.
ABHISHEKAM WITH PARIMALA THEERTHAM
Swamy with His two consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi are also brought from the Sanctum along with the idol of Viswaksena. The deities were offered holy bath with the aromatic Parimala Theertham filled in the one Thousand and Eight Silver reciting Pancha Suktas and the Pancha Shanthi Mantras by Acharya Purushas.
The entire event lasted for nearly one and a half hours between 8.30am and 10am. The devotees who took part in this celestial ritual were immersed in the devotional waves chanting “Govinda…Govinda” with utmost religious fervour and devotion.
TIRUPPAVADA SEVA ON THURSDAY
Yet another unique and important ritual, the Tiruppavada Seva, which is usually offered on every Thursday in Tirumala temple, will be replicated during the ongoing Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavotsavams on October 13 between 8.30am and 10.30am.
One of the chief priests of Tirumala temple Sri Venugopala Deekshitulu, Agama Advisor Sri Mohanarangacharyulu, Donors Sri Harshavardhan, Sri SS Reddy, Sri Venkateswara Reddy, Sri Subba Reddy, All Projects Officer Smt Vijayalakshmi, VGO Sri Manohar, Annamacharya Project Director Dr Vibhishana Sharma, AEOs Sri Jaganmohanacharyulu, Sri Parthasaradhy, Sri Sriramulu were also present.
