Your purpose of coming to thiruvenkatam is to protect the worlds. Since you are the lord of all the worlds, it is your responsibility. Your kind eyes prove that you will protect all of us. When we slip in our duties, if you were to be a little annoyed, Alarmel Mangai is there to appease you. The fact that you will never disregard her words is shown by you always being with her.

Even Crore Manmathas together cannot match your beauty. Usually inert Gopikas surrounded you, attracted by the music of your Flute. You are the one to give Moksha(boon of no rebirth).

INFORMATION
' PUJA' WORSHIP (By Pt. Shrinathji) Puja is a word in Sanskrit language, which stands for Worship. In the word Puja -- 'p' stands for 'paapa' meaning sins. 'j' stands for 'janma' means birth. With 'p' it removes all accumulated sins, and 'j' it makes your life's (birth) purpose fulfilled. The Lord being not accessible to our eyes, ears, nose, touch and beyond the ken of ordinary (undefined) Intellect, the ancients devised a method of bringing Lord within the realm of the senses. This method is to worship God in an object (photo, water, fire, precious jewel, idol etc) which you can touch, feel, smell, see, feel the taste of. Thus all wandering senses are brought to a focus, by belief (faith) and by daily practice. Unshakable faith and long practice, evokes and unfolds hitherto unknown dimensions in awareness, which are generally not communicable in the normal way. By puja you will be in a positions to inject noblest thoughts in the subconscious. Above all, one will succeed in solving the mystery of 'Life'. Do the Puja anyway you can with Devotion and love for Lord in your heart.

God out of his mercy will overlook all the shortcomings of men if they pursue the path of devotion with fervor. At the end of worship, daily or occasional, a prayer is offered to God not to mind the defects while chanting the mantras or adapting the procedures or for forgetting to do some duties out of ignorance. The Almighty is compassionate enough to ignore such errors. Thus mercy being His chief trait, a devotee need not be concerned with minor defects if his endeavors is absolutely sincere but the enjoined duties should not be abandoned.

INFORMATION
Let us look at the Puja format As we discussed in previous paragraphs All pervasive God is being worshipped in the form of photo or Idol. To worship God two things are very essential. 1. Shraddha (commitment) and 2. Bhakti (Devotion). The worship of God is in the format of Upacharas (royal respects). Let us see what they are: Dhyaana : We first meditate whom to invite Avaahana : We invoke the presence of God Aasana : When He arrives offer the seat to sit down Arghyam : Offer a spoonful of water to wash His hands Paadyam : Offer water to wash feet Aachamanam : Offer some water to drink Snaanam : Take him to bath (you chant shlokas telling the glory of God Panchamrita : Mixture of milk, yogurt, ghee, honey and sugar. These five nectars are selected to give bath. Vastra : Offer a piece of cloth Yajnopaveeta : sacred thread Gandha : Offer sandal paste for the body Akshata : Offer unbroken decorated rice Aabharana : Offer ornaments Pushpa : Offer flower Ashtottara Puja: Chanting 108 names of His excellence Dhoopa : Offer perfume sticks (agarbatti) Deepa : Offer the lamp Naivedya : Offer fruits and prepared sweets Paaniya : Offer water to drink Tambula : Offer betel leaves Mangala Arati: Wishing well and show aarati asking for light of knowledge Mantrapushpa: Offer the flowers of hymns Pradakshina : Circumambulate your self for removal of sins Namaskara : Total surrender Praarthana : Prayers ( here you say why you called and why you did the Puja) Kshamapana : Apologies for mistakes Visarjanam : Concluding the Puja The above said format is very easy to follow. Worship God, tell your prayers and always be blessed. OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI.

GEETHA DHYANAM

Introduction : Geetha Dhyaanam, also called Dhyaana Slokas, has Nine Slokas of Prayerful Meditation. These Slokas are usually chanted by Students devoted to the study of Bhagavath Geetha, before they start their daily Geetha Lessons. This is much similar to our tradition of praying to God before starting any auspicious undertaking.
Sloka 1:

OM PAARTHAAYA PRATI BODHITAAM BHAGAVATHAA NAARAAYANENA SWAYAM… VYAASENA GRATHITAAM PURAANA MUNINAA MADHYE MAHAA BHAARATAM…… ADVAITAMRUTA VARSHINEEM BHAGAVATEEM ASHTAA DASHAA DHYAAYINEEM…. AMBA TVAAM ANUSANDADHAAMI BHAVATH GEETHE BHAVATHVESHINEEM……
Meaning : (This sloka is a prayer to Bhagavath Geetha itself). I constantly meditate upon Bhagavath Geetha, which is a Divine song, with which Partha (Arjuna) was enlightened by Lord Narayana himself, which was incorporated in the midst of Mahabharata by the ancient Sait Vyasa, in the form of 18 chapters.
Sloka 2:

NAMOSTHU TE VYAASA VISHAALA BUDHDHE FULLARAVINDAAYATAPATRA NETRA YENA TVAYAA BHAARATA THAILA POORNAHA PRAJVAALITO GNYAANA MAYA PRADEEPAHA
Meaning : Salutation unto thee, Oh Vyaasa! Of Mighty Intellect, who has eyes as the petals of a full-blown lotus flower, by whom was lighted the Lamp of Knowledge filled with the Mahabharata Oil.

Meaning : In this sloka the Battle of Mahabharata is described as a River, with Bhishma and Drona as its banks; with Jayadhrata as its waters; with the King of Gaandharaa as the blue Water-Lily; Shalya as the Shark ; KRuPA as the current ; Karna as the Breaker ; Ashvathama and Vikarna as the terribel Crocodiles; Duryodhana as the Whirpool in it. This “River” was indeed crossed over by the Pandavas with Kesava (Lord Krishna) as the Ferry-man.
Sloka 7:

Meaning : May the spotless lotus of the Mahabharata Growing in the waters of the words of Parasara’s son (Vyaasa), having for its sweet and pleasant fragrance the significance of Geeta, with many narratives as its inner soft petals, fully blossomed by the stories of Hari and joyously drunk day after day by the six footed (honey bees), the good in the world – be productive of the supreme good to us who are eager to destroy and safely come out of the inner imperfections of the Iron Age.
