ANNAVARAM

The priests, well versed and supremely fitted guide the vratar this at the temple in the special spacious Halls built for this purpose. Large congregations of Vratar this packed to the halls every day speaks volumes of its popularity and efficacy. Though Bhishma Ekadasi is marked out as the most auspicious day for initiation, thousands of ever growing bhaktas cannot be accommodated on that day. As the Sannidhi of the Lord is the most auspicious, and every minute is holiest, people throng the temple everyday and get initiated. Hence the entire temple area reverberates with the sacred Mantra and exudes divinity at all times. After initiation, the bhaktas worship the Lord regularly in their places and hold periodical Maharaadhana and special prayer services with great gusto, when the place wears festive appearance and disseminates the potency of it. This Satyanarayana Vrata has become so popular in the States of Andhra and Karnataka that there is no single town without a Mandir for the Lord for regular worship. Needless to say the Lord like Kalpavriksha is blessing the votaries, and so is called the Pratyaksha Daivam.
