Temple, a platform to learn…

Our sages established temple institution as a platform to learn the divine aspects of life. These aspects include knowledge of God who is the source of all existence, knowledge of self, knowledge of nature, and ways to liberate oneself from karma and attain eternal blissful state.

Bramho:tsavam, is an annual celebration of the day of God’s appearance amidst us in the form of a deity in a temple. One of the events during this celebration is Vahana Sevas, procession of God on a vehicle. Some vehicles are chosen as a representation of the rest of the beings. Sun (suryaprabha va:hana), moon (chandraprabha va:hana), horse (ashva va:hana), elephant (gaja va:hana), snake (sesha va:hana) etc… Stay tuned for the significance of Garuda va:hana.

MUST KNOW: The three levels

If you look at anything in this existence, there are three levels to it…

  • A:di bhowthika, the physical level [the body]
  • A:di daivika, the soul [the one who ‘feels’ the happenings, performs actions etc]
  • A:dhya:thmika, the antharya:mi, the indwelling supporter [God]
  • Every activity performed in the temple recognises these three levels…
    When Garuda is invited, there is a physical drawing/structure of Garuda that represents the a:di bhowthika level. Following which, the soul of Garuda is invoked representing a:di daivika. Finally, the Lord indwelling in Garuda is invited representing a:dhya:thmika level…

    With this knowledge in mind, one can find peace despite many differences in expectations from people, various challenges faced in life and from any other hurdles…

I feel blessed to be doing this service. Even if one person gets inspired with our words they can inspire many people. Hoping to talk to more interested visitors who will go and inspire others. New generation youth can’t relate to sculptures vedas slokas etc, swamiji is reintroducing it to everyone in a new way.

The experience at the information Center is very nice. It feels very good to explain to everyone regarding swamiji and the various activities going on here. I came from Hanumakonda and feeling blessed to be part of this service.

Interviews of devotees during theeetha Goshti Why take thi:rtham?

It is our luck to take God’s thi:rtham through a:charya. We came all the way from Warangal to take thi:rtham from HH’s hands!

– Kambu Rama Devi.

When we take thi:rtham, our health will be good. Our mind will be peaceful. We will get punyam. Lord Srimannarayana Himself is our a:charya.

– Devotee

“ He is my guru. Taking thi:rtham through His hands will elevate me. That’s why I am taking thi:rtham.”
