ARCHAMURTHY

" What singularity can we find there and what is their significance? Please tell us before going."

" Good enquiry and a pertinent question. You have seen Balaji image printed or painted on several objects, like paper, cloth, wood, metal etc. and in all sizes too. But close observation reveals that in all the image is in sthanaka-standing posture only. It is chaturbhuja with a grand crown on the head and a white mark on the chin together with adorned profusely with dazzling long gold chains and colourful garlands. The various sizes and colours of Balaji image you have seen are the exact prototype of Lord Venkateswara you are going see shortly in t he Garbhagriha, The holy black granite icon of Lord Venkateswara, six feet in height is revealing in standing posture with four hands, the upper two holding Sudarsana Chakra and Sankhu, while the right lower called Vaikunta or Varadahasta, pointing to the sacred feet, and the left lower one called Katihasta placed on the knee signifying that for those who have trust in him, the samsarasagara is only knee deep, and if they take refuge at his feet, he will confer mukti by lifting from the abyss of eternal woe. Grand symbols, and grandeur is the interpretation too. This Mula Virat has many more marvels and mysteries concealed in Himself. A close look reveals that He combines in Himself both the aspects of Siva and Vishnu. The Nagabharanas and Jata in Kiritam are the characteristic symbols of Siva, but here Balaji is adorned with them. This goes to prove that he is both Hari and Hara. Yet, there is another proof that the Brahma aspect standing for creation is present in the archamurti, but it is unmanifest.
