INTRODUCTION

The state of Andhra Pradesh heading the list of the states of Indian Union, incidentally forming the first leg of our Dakshinadesa yatra is sanctified by numerous shrines associated with the habitation and visitation by celestial luminaries of all denominations. But Vaishnavism here has taken deep roots, and it seems Lord Srimannarayan has taken a special fancy for this land, drenched by the sacred rivers of Goutami and Krishna etc. The Vaishnavate temples are decidedly more than the Saivate, whose number too is neither small, nor prominence, less conspicuous. And of all, the inexplicable glory of Lord Venkateswara of the Seven Hills has catapulted the whole Bharatkhand into high heavens as it were, and perched it atop the places of worship of any religion, in any point of time, to be precise. Figures speak and facts testify. To be sure, a like of which has neither been witnessed by the Kaladevata so far, nor the Mother Earth will likely produce in future; it has excelled all the unexcelled excellences of divinity adored on earth in any form, belonging to any religion or race. This Lord endearingly called Balaji is believed to be the tenth incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu, though not visible to the mortal eyes, is making His presence felt and realised by millions of the ardent devotees, who filling His treasure made Him the richest among gods so far descended for Lokodharana.
