several types of rituals and prayer services too are astonishing in their number
and variety. According to the belief, the Lord is worshipped eternally by the
Nityasuris, as exemplified by the custom of filling of all the vessels used for
worship with Punya Thirtha in the night, and is distributed as Prasad the next
day. Would not skepticism dissolve to get solidified into perfect theism, if
once it stands face to face with the enchanting form of this Lord to drinking in
the divinity exuding from every pore, while ears listening to the narration of
the Lord's supremacy, and soul lost in ecstatic joy at the prospect of immediate
Sayujya Mukti. Seeing is believing; believing prepares one to inculcating right
devotion and that inculcation leads to emulating the evolved souls, which
culminates in emancipation. So a visit is a MUST, in spirit and fact.
every visitor deserves staying a little more longer before Lord Venkateswara,
adorned with costly jewels and draped in shimmering silks whose worth can be
fixed only in astronomical figures, we are dragged physically by the scores
guides, allowing not even a fleeting second, yet the experience remains
evergreen and beckons unending repetitions of the visit. But similar effect is
repeated on the next visit too. So each man then visits ... visits... visits...
On being pushed out of the golden gate by the staff, we proceed to the
Ardharmandap where thirtha prasad is given with the satari ritual. While moving,
we will be surprised to see a long row of smart young men thrusting into our
hands tickets for free meal, supplied in huge halls, served by hundred of men to
thousands and thousands, both at noon and night.
