SAKSHATKARA VAIBHAVOTSAVAMS IN SKVST FROM JULY 8-10
PARUVETA UTSAVAM ON JULY 11
Tirupati, 21 June 2016: The three-day annual Sakshatkara Vaibhavotsavams will take place in the famous temple of Lord Sri Kalyana Venkateswara Swamy in Srinivasa Mangapuram from July 8-10 in a grand manner.
This festival is considered to be as important on par with the annual brahmotsavams. The temple administration of TTD has all set to celebrate this festival in a big way this year considering its significance.
As per historical evidences, the Sasanams engraved ‘on the right door-jamb wall of the entrance of Sri Kalyana Venkateswara Swamy Temple at Mangapuram village, dated 22nd March, 1510A.D. the Temple was brought to worship by doing “Jeernodharana” by Chinna Thirumalacharyulu, the grand son of Saint Poet Thallapaka Annamcharyulu.
In 1940, an Archaka by name Sundararaja, from Kanchipuram of Tamil Nadu has come to the Village Mangapuram, saying that Lord Srinivasa has appeared in his dream and told to bring the temple to past glory which was in dilapidated condition by performing Dhoopa Deepa Naivedhya Aradhana and disappeared”.
Archaka Sundararaja then cleared all the debris in and around the Temple with the help of village elders and did First Pooja on 11th July 1940 ‘Ashada Suddha Sasti Day’, said to be the day or muhurtham as ordered by the Lord Himself in his dream.
FESTIVAL MARKS REVIVAL OF KAINKARYAMS
To mark the auspicious day of revival of nitya pooja kainkaryams as decided by Lord Himself, TTD has been conducting this festival as ‘Sakshatkara Vaibhavamu’ on Ashada Suddha Sasti Day in the month of June/July of every year.
Meanwhile TTD has cancelled all arjitha sevas in connection with this religious festival on these three days.
