ABHISHEKA SEVA MUSES DENIZENS OF VIZAG IN VENKATESWARA VAIBHAVOTSAVAMS
VIZAG, JULY 25The denizens of Vizag in Swarna Bharathi Auditorium were mused by the Divine Charm of Lord Venkateswara especially during Abhisheka Seva where they were blessed to witness the Nija Swarupa of Lord being rendered sacred bath on Friday.
As a part of the week-long spiritual programme, the Lord was given holy bath – “Abhishekam”. This being the most sanctifying ritual mentioned in Vaikhanasa Agama, Abhishekam was done first with milk, then with water, Sandal paste, Turmeric, pachcha karpura, to the accompaniment of Vedic hymns, Purusha Sukta and mantras.
Devotees had darshan of the Lord in all His splendour as the replica Mula Beram was divested of all ornaments and clothes except Alarmelmanga plaque. The denizens were thrilled by this rarest darsana of the Lord in his “Nija Swarupa’.
Abhishekam was also performed for the gold image of Srivatsa that hangs on His chest, to the chanting of Sri-Suktam. And at the end Harthi was performed and the auditorium premises reverberated with rhythmic chants of “Govinda Namas” by thousands of devotees who thronged to witness the grandeur of Lord on Friday.
