Published by bhargavasarma
We come across several divine festivals and events during the sacred month of Vaisakha maasam starting from Akshaya Thrutheeya but, one such very sacred and celestial event that does not figure in the Hindu calendar (except in TTD’s) is Vaisakha Sukla Dasami; the day divine marriage of Lord Srinivaasa (Venkateswara) and Goddess Padmavathi Devi took place. It is rather surprising how this celestial episode of the Lord of the Universe has missed out the attention of Panchaanga Karthas. In fact, this event of the divine marriage forms the basis for the Supreme Lord Vishnu to manifest at Tirumala hills in this Kaliyuga. For making this event happen Lord Vishnu is said to have come down to the earth from his abode Vaikunta after having a wrangle (Leela of the Lord) with his consort Goddess Maha Lakshmi. He took the form of Srinivasa and settled down at Aananda Nilaya on top of Tirumala Hills called Venkataadri also known as Venkataachala after getting married with Goddess Padmavathi Devi. Let’s try to get acquainted with its niceties and its significance.

 Venkataadrisamam Sthaanam Brahmaande Naasthi Kinchana Venkatesasamo Devo Na Bhootho Na Bhavishyathi
In this Universe there is no other sacred place equivalent to Venkataadri (Tirumala);there is no God equivalent to Lord Venkateswara neither in the past nor in the futuregoing to be. Above verses are from Sri Venkatesa Stothram an extract from Brahmaanda Puranaas a dialogue between Lord Brahma and Sage Naarada; stands as a testimonial andadds to the glory; origin and significance of Lord Srinivasa (Venkateswara).For fulltext of Sri Venkatesa Stothram please click on the following
link…
 
Reciting above prayer Stothra on Lord Sri Venkateshwara daily three times is highly meritorious that will ward off the evil effects one is facing in this Kaliyuga.In simple, He is none other than Lord SriManNarayana; Sri Hari (Harey!Srinivaasa); Maha Vishnu; the house hold deity; whose glory and reference we findin as many as twelve Puraanaas the consolidation of which is called Sri Venkataachala Mahaatmya. There are several stories about the Lord (Srinivaasa) atTirumala Hills who is believed to be in existence since time immemorial. He is in Archaavathaara (worshipable form), Swayam Vyaktha (self manifested), will bepresent in Aananda Nilayam (present abode of the Lord) till end of Kaliyugaprotecting Dharma and humanity from the evils of Kaliyuga. It is believed that He will be present on Earth in every Kaliyuga. Tirumala the abode of Lord Venkateswarais Kaliyuga Bhuu-Vaikuntam.
 
Kruthethu Naarasimho Bhoo Trethayaam RaghunandanaDwaapare Vaasudevascha Kalau Venkatanaayaka!
In Krutha Yuga, Lord Naarasimha; in Tretha Yuga, Lord Sri Raama; in Dwaapara Yuga, Lord Sri Krushna and in Kaliyuga, Lord Venkateswara (Srinivaasa) are knownas Prathyaksha Dhaivams (perceivable Deities).
Lord Venkateswara is thepresiding deity of Kaliyuga
 Kalau Venkatanaayaka. 
Is it possible for any one to describe Lord Srinivaasa (Venkateswara) in thisUniverse? Even Lord Brahma cannot and could not do it. His glory is infinite. He ishighly meritorious among the meritorious. No one can describe or define Himprecisely. It will be an exaggeration if one has not heard/known Lord Venkateswaraof Tirumala; also called Srinivaasa.
