ANNAVARAM

THE YANTRA

The yantra installed in the ground floor is infinitely powerful, and has become the principal cause of the phenomenal growth of the temple, despite the conspicuous absence of hoary antiquity, or godly connections. Its mystic appeal holds a tremendous grip on the votaries. This sacred yantra inscribed is based on the Tripada Vibhuti Narayana Upanishad, an integral part of Atharvaveda. It is installed on the Tripeethas, and over their Meru portion is inscribed the Bijakshara Samputi. The apex forming into the Bindu bears a monolithic pillar and on the top of the pillar is the image of the Lord Sri Veera Venkata Satyanarayanaswamy. In the top floor, the Lord is installed on a grand broad Vedika, and is flanked by Sri Lakshmi Satyavathi Devi on the left, and Lord Siva on the right. It is here installed the images of Maheswar, Gananath, Ambika and Aditya in four corners and are receiving equal importance with the Moola Virat. Trikalapuja and other rituals are offered to these four at the same time along with the archamurthi. And hence these five formed Vishnu Panchayatanas. And this novelty is found nowhere in the entire Bharat.
