Tirupati Balaji recreation comes to Delhi for darshan


New Delhi: Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has organised the Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavotsavam festival, a 10-day celebration in Delhi. Tirupati Balaji devotees will see a recreation of his idol in an atmosphere that mirrors the customary practices in Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh.

For the first time, rituals performed at Tirumala will be held in a 10-day festival starting from October 31till November 8 in the parking space of the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

The pran pratishthan (invoking God in the idols) will be carried out, followed by Vaibhavotsavam– which includes daily sevas, Visesha (special puja) and Poorabhishekam.

Devotees of the Lord, who had to wait for as long as 20 years to book for the darshan (view of the Lord) online can now witness Poorabhishekam, and fulfil their desire easily.

Till now, only three places in Andhra Pradesh have witnessed these rituals outside the Tirumala temple. Delhi is the fourth city and the first one outside Andhra Pradesh to witness it. To make the darshan as authentic as possible, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), which manages the Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple, is leaving no stones unturned.

“Apart from the idols, even the temple curtains are being brought from Tirumala. We want the devotees to get exactly the same experience and feeling in Delhi,” said Bhanu Prakash Reddy, board member, TTD.

The idols of the Gods will be taken out in a procession, a ritual called Veedhotsavam, every evening.

During this peak festive enthusiasm, Delhiites are set to make a new addition to their list: Lord Balaji of Tirupati fame has come to the National Capital Region.

In this festive season, thepeople of Delhi have an opportunity to grace Diwali with this special presentation by TTD to get some blessings of the God. Several days are left for this festivity to get over and the Delights seems to be taking full advantage of the easy availability of tickets on entry.
