SRI VARI ANNUAL BRAHMOTSAVAM- PROCESSION OF MOHINI AVATHARAM






On the fifth day of Srivari Salakatla Brahmotsavam Lord Venkateswara enthralled his devotees by appearing in the form of celestial beauty Mohini (female costumes) and lived up to his reputation as an “alankara priyudu (well dressed, be-jewelled   handsome personality).

As legends put it Lords appearance as bejeweled and charming Mohini throws the demons (Asura’s) in confusion and wins the celestial battle in favor of the Devatas. The objective  of  the  Mohini avatar  is  also to indicate that the entire universe is spell bound  under the Mystic Mohini  and that the Lord of Tirumala is the king pin and key architect of this high drama in the universe. The superb decoration of the idol baffles even young damsels wondering at richness of the jewels and also the beauty of the utsava idol of Mohini.

The  devout  say that  by  appearing as Mohini during the  Srivari Brahmotsavam   Lord Venkateswara had  sent a message  that  the entire universe was a  creation of his  Maya. To overcome this maya everyone should worship him.

Among the various forms donned by Lord MahaVishnu, Mohini-the universal beauty is the adorable form of supernaturally beautiful Enchantress. Through Mohini Avatara the lord enlightens his devotees not to fall prey to worldly desires and come out of that "Maya".

At the same time Lord Venkateswara appears as a child Sri Krishna before his countless devotees on a pallaki (palanquin) made of ivory and Rose woodpresented to the Temple by the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore.

It is a pleasant surprise to see Srivaru decked up as Mohini and riding in a bright white palanquin made of silver and ivory.  The superbly carved palanquin highlighted the Mohini who cast her spell on non-believers and transformed them into His ardent disciples.
