SRI VARI ANNUAL BRAHMOTSAVAM- PROCESSION OF HAMSA VAHANAM




The grand procession of Lord Venkateswara on the second day of Salakatla Brahmotsavam on the beautiful  HamsaVahanam is colourful feast to the tens of thousands of eyes. Lord Venkateswara as Malayalappaswami blessed his devotees as Veenapani Saraswati atop Hamsa or Swan.

Swan or Hamsa also stands out for its capabilities to weed out the good from the bad. In other words the celestial bird is known for its in-born virtues to segregate the milk from water in a pot of this mixed liquid. This denotes that Lord Venkateswara as Hamsavahanaroodha(the rider of swan vehicle) will weed out the bad qualities in a human being and retain only the good virtues.

As saint –poet Annamacharya put it “Hamsa-cheti  palu neeru-natlaye batuku” . In his  embodiment  as  Veena pani  atop  the golden swan , Lord Venkateswara  drives  home the point among the devotees to give up ‘Aham’(ego)and to contribute their  might  in the service of mankind  by helping  the poor and needy.

Srivari Hamsa Vahanam denotes the significance attached towards selfless service of everyone towards mankind and that ego and personal pride would keep them away from Lord Venkateswara and his divine blessings.

TTD Chairman Sri K.Bapi Raju and TTD Executive Officer Sri L.V.Subramanyam released audio cd titled "Hodi Bheri" of Dasa Sahithya and Sri Venkateswara Prabhatha Stavamu by Thallapaka Pedda Tirumalacharya in front of Vahanam.
