Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti and Sree Jayanthi

Krishna Janmashtami
(Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti and Sree Jayanthi)

Devotees, who observe fast on Janmashtami, should have only single meal a day before Janmashtami. On fasting day, devotees take Sankalpa to observe a day long fast and to break it on the next day when both Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi are over. Some devotees break the fast when either Rohini Nakshatra or Ashtami Tithi is over. Sankalpa is taken after finishing morning rituals and the day long fasting begins with Sankalpa.

The time to perform Krishna Puja is during Nishita Kala which is the midnight as per Vedic time-keeping. Devotees perform detailed ritualistic Puja during midnight and it involves all sixteen steps which are part of Shodashopachara (षोडशोपचार) Puja Vidhi. Please check Krishna Janmashtami Puja Vidhi which lists all Puja steps for Janmashtami along with Vedic Mantra to perform the Puja.

Krishna was the eighth son of Devaki and Vasudeva. Based on scriptural details and astrological calculations, the date of Krishna's birth, known as Janmashtami, is 18 July 3228 BCE and he lived until 18 February 3102 BCE. Krishna belonged to the Vrishni clan of Yadavas from Mathura, and was the eighth son born to the princess Devaki and her husband Vasudeva.

Mathura (in present-day Mathura district, Uttar Pradesh) was the capital of the Yadavas, to which Krishna's parents Vasudeva and Devaki belonged. King Kansa, Devaki's brother, had ascended the throne by imprisoning his father, King Ugrasena. Afraid of a prophecy that predicted his death at the hands of Devaki's eighth son, Kansa had the couple locked in a prison cell. After Kansa killed the first six children, and Devaki's apparent miscarriage of the seventh (which was actually a secret transfer of the infant to Rohini as Balarama), Krishna was born.

Following the birth, Vishnu ordered Vasudeva to take Krishna to Gokul to Nanda and Yashoda, where he could live safely, away from his Uncle Kansa. Vasudeva took Krishna with him and crossed the Yamuna to reach Gokul. There, everyone was asleep; so he quietly kept him there and returned with Yashoda's daughter. Kansa, thinking her to be Devki's eight child, threw her on a stone. But she rose into the air and transformed into Yogmaya (who is Vishnu's helper) and warned Kansa about his death. Then, she disappeared. Krishna grew up in Gokul with his brother, Balram. He then returned to Mathura and killed Kansa with the help of Balram.

Fasting Rules on Krishna Janmashtami

No grains should be consumed during Janmashtami fasting until the fast is broken on next day after Sunrise. All rules followed during Ekadashi fasting should be followed during Janmashtami fasting also.

Parana which means breaking the fast should be done at an appropriate time. For Krishna Janmashtami fasting, Parana is done on next day after Sunrise when Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra are over. If Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra don't get over before Sunset then fast can be broken during day time when either Ashtami Tithi or Rohini Nakshatra is over. When neither Ashtami Tithi nor Rohini Nakshatra is over before Sunset or even Hindu Midnight (also known as Nishita Time) one should wait to get them over before breaking the fast.

Depending on end timing of Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra fasting on Krishna Janmashtami might continue for two complete days. Devotees who are not able to follow two days fasting might break the fast on next day after Sunrise. It has been suggested by Hindu religious text Dharmasindhu.

Powerful Scientific Benefits of Visiting Vedic Hindu Temples

Powerful Scientific Benefits of Visiting Vedic Hindu Temples

There are thousand and thousands of temples all over India in different size, shape and locations but not all of them considered to be in the Vedic way.

Generally the temples are located in a place where earth's magnetic wave path densely passes through. It can be in the outer skirt of the town/village or city, even in middle of the dwelling place, or on a hilltop. The essence of visiting a temple is considered here. For every Srivaishnava, it is a must to pay a visit twice every day to the Vishnu Temples in their locations. In simple terms, these temples are located strategic to a place where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic wave distributions of north/south pole thrust.

Because of its location where high magnetic values are available, the Main Idol is placed in the core center, and also because they place a copper plate written with some Vedic scripts, which is buried, beneath the Main Idol's placement known as "Garbhagriha" or Moolasthan, the copper absorbs the earths magnetic waves and radiates to the surroundings. Thus a person who regularly visiting a temple and taking clockwise rounds of the Main Idol's placement, automatically receive the beamed magnetic values absorbed in his body. This is very slow and a regular visit will make him absorb more energy. What scientifically it is known is positive energy. In addition, the Sanctum sanctorum is completely enclosed on three sides. The effect of all energies is very high in here. The lamp that is lit radiates the heat and light energy. The ringing of the bells and the chanting of prayers gives the sound energy.

The fragrance from the flowers, the burning of camphor give out the chemical energy. The effect of all these energies is activated by the positive energy that comes out of the idol. This is in addition to the north/south pole magnetic energy that is absorbed by the copper plate and utensils that are kept in the Moolasthan known as grabagraham. The water is used for the Pooja is mixed with Cardamom, Benzoine, Holy Basil (Tulsi), Clove, etc. are mixed that is known as "Theertham". This water becomes more energized because it receives the positive ness of all these energies combined. When persons go to the temple for the Deepaaraadhana, and when the doors open up, the positive energy gushes out onto the persons who are there. The water that is sprinkled onto the people passes on the energy to all. That is the reason why, men are not allowed to wear shirts to the temple and ladies have to wear more ornaments because it is through these jewels (metal) that positive energy is absorbed in ladies. It is proved that Theertham is a very good blood purifier, as it is highly energized. Hence it is given as prasadam to the devotees.

Lost energy in a days work is regained this way and one gets being refreshed slightly. The positive energy that is spread out in the entire temple and especially around where the main idol is placed, are simply absorbed in one's body and mind, for those who take a regular clock-wise round circle every day.  In addition at the temples they offer holy water about three spoons. This water is mainly a source of magneto therapy kind because usually they place the copper water vessel at the Garbhagriha. It also contains the values of cardamom, clove, saffron, etc to add taste and Tulsi (holy Basil) leaves are put into the water to increase its medicinal value! The clove essence protects one from tooth decay, the saffron & Tulsi leave essence protects one from common cold and cough, cardamom and benzoine known as Pachha Karpuram,  acts as a mouth refreshing agents! This way, one's health too is protected, by regularly visiting the Temples. The entire thing just become more energized locally, that the visit and consuming the holy water and the other offerings are worth for the visitor's health and longevity.

Apart from the above facts, each and every round taken in the temple is just simply burning fats in human body and in those days people regularly visited temples and never used to get sugar complaints/diabetic! In addition to it the Vedic chanting helps visitors some refreshing feeling in body and mind thus achieving mental peace, which is the ultimate aim of every soul. And in those days, it was quite rare, you'll see persons with Sugar level high in their blood. In fact, the regular round trip to the temple itself protects one from increasing sugar levels.

Do all the temples have the same value?

Those temples constructed in earlier during Vedic Era used to be in accordance with Vedic principles and it has all such rich potentials listed above. As of now only about 180 temples in India qualify this & most of it is situated in the southern part of India. The location, structural, daily rituals followed without fail etc are counted. Unfortunately, some of the temples that are materially worthy are in the verge of collapse and are neglected of any proper maintenance. In fact, most of these architectural marvels deserves protection from the Heritage point of view, if not from the Religious importance!

In fact out of 108 Divyakshetras known as Srivaishnava Divyadesams (SriVaishnava's Holy Pilgrimage spots)  of Sri Vaishnava, 106 are located on the earth, most of them situated in southern part of India, said to be with high value of Vedic reliance. Though many of them in worst condition, still the values can be received by a visit to these places. That's why the pilgrimage carried out by the religious and orthodox Indians to temples. And sure IT CURES!! Cure from many ills.

The temples in the roadside and every nook and corner can never be matched with the ones constructed and placed in accordance with Vedic principles. However it may give some relief from a days tension and a visit to a temple itself gives some peace to many, the inner feeling for prayer and Bhakti can never be questioned.

These 108 Divyadesams (Sri Vaishnava pilgrimage spots are known as Divya Kshetram) are found throughout India and they are divided into 7 categories as listed below. These are the state or zones, where temple is located actually.

  • Thondainaadu - 22 Divyadesams     }
  • Chozhanaadu - 40 Divyadesams      }
  • Nadunaadu - 2 Divyadesams           }  All situated in Southern part of India
  • Pandiyanaadu - 18 Divyadesams     }
  • Malayaalanaadu - 13 Divyadesams }
  • Vadanaadu - 11 Divyadesams and  - Situated in Northern part of India + 1 in Nepal
  • Lord Sri Mahavishnu's abode 2 Divyadesams - Sri Lord Sriman Narayana's Abode

There are eight SwayamVyaktha (self revealing) kshetrams in India. It virtually means, that no man created or sculptured those Statues of the Lord in these places, but all of His own appearance and creation. These are holy places where the Lord revealed himself to give darshan (Audience) to the People. These are:

  • Badrikashramam, 
  • Salagramam, 
  • Naimisaranyam, 
  • Pushkaram, 
  • Thirumalai (Tirupathi), 
  • Srirangam, Srimushnam & 
  • Thothadri (Vanamamalai).

Among the 108 Temples known as Divyadesam for Srivaishnavites, only 106 visibly located on the mother Earth. Rest two known are (the most Srivaishnavites would like to visit on attaining the Moksha, to liberate themselves from rebirth) known as Thiruparkadal and Sri Vaikuntham - The Abodes of Sri Maha Vishnu.  These are the places worshipped and sung by great Tamil Saints known as Alwars, the saintly poets who immersed themselves in the divine ocean of Lord Vishnu. Divyadesams are also Divya Kshetrams.

Emperumaan, Lord Sriman Narayanan is found in various Thirukkolam. The Thirukkolam (Appearance of His revered Idols) in 108 Divyakshetrams are listed  below:

  • Kidantha Thirukkolam (Sleeping Posture) - 27 Divya desams
  • Veetrirundha Thirukkolam (Sitting Position) - 21 Divya  desams
  • Nindra Thirukkolam (Standing Position) - 60 Divya desams

Out of these 108 Divyadesams, as we have seen that The Lord ( Perumal) is gracing on various Thirukkolam (Postures), he is also facing his Thirumugham (Face) on various directions and giving his seva darshan, as below:

The Lord appears facing Towards East direction at 79 temples, facing towards West direction - 19, facing towards North direction - 3  and facing towards South direction in 7 temples.

Mantralayam Sree Guru Raghavendra Swamy

Mantralayam Sree Guru Raghavendra Swamy

🌷 🌷 🌷  !! पूज्याय राघवेन्द्राय सत्यधर्मरताय च । भजतां कल्पवृक्षाय नमतां कामधेनवे !!  🌷🌷🌷

In the court of Sri Krishna Deva Raya , the Vijayanagar Emperor , patron of arts , poets and scholars was a scholar named "Krishna Bhattu". He had a son , named "Kanakachala Bhattu" , whose son was "Thimmana Bhattu".

Thimmanna Bhattu was not only famous as a scholar proficient in the Vedas and sastras but also as an accomplished player on the veena. His Wife was a pious lady named "Gopamba". The devout couple had a son and daughter. According to the popular proverb that "one eye is not an eye and one son is not a son", they desired to have another son, So, they went on a piligrimage to Tirupathi . They worshipped Sri Venkateswara with intense devotion and prayed for a son. Being gratified by the sincere devotion of the pious couple, Sri Srinivasa appeared to them in a dream and told them that he was pleased to grant them a son who would serve as a shining example of the virtues of divine knowledge devotion and detachement and would raise the world to heights of nobility. Thimmanna Bhattu and Gopamba praised the Lord for his infinite kindness and returned to their native village of Bhuvanagiri . After the laps of nine months, Gopamba gave birth to a son on an auspicious day. He was named "Venkatanatha" as he was born out of Venkateswara's grace. The child grew up into a gracefull boy , endowed with intelligence and smartness. He was put in school on attanining the age of five. A few days later, Thimmanna took ill and breathed his last.

The responsibility of educating Venkateswara felt on Gururaja, the elder son of Thimmanna. He found much difficulty in maintaining his family. At the age of eight he performed Venkatanatha's upanayanam (sacred thread cermany) with the help of donations received from rich people. Then he sent Venkatanatha to his brother-in-law, Sri Lakshminarasimhacharya for further education.

Sri Lakshminarasimhacharya felt it not only easy but a pleasure to teach his new ward as the latter was quick to learn. In a very short time, the boy acquired mastery over the Vedas, the six sastras and the eighteen paranas and became unrivelled in scholarship.

Venkatanatha was married to a young beautifull and virtuous girl named Saraswathi at the proper age. Generally education ends with marriage.But it was not so in the case of Venkatanatha. At that time , the pontific seat at Kumbakonam was adorned by Sri Sudhindra Thirtha, who was trained by the famous Sri Vijayendra Thirtha Swami. Sri Sudhindra was proficient in the traditional sixty-four arts and he taught many peoples, besides propagating the Dwaita ideals.Venkatanatha desired to go to him and receive lessons in philosophy. Accordingly taking his elder brothers permission he went to Sri Sudhindra prostrated before him and stood at a distance in great humility. The Swami asked him who he was.Venkatanatha replied that he was Venkanna , son of the Veena Scholar, Thimmanna and expressed a desire to receive instruction from the Swami in "Sri Sudha". Sri Sudhindra was pleased with him and he not only agreed to teach him but also permitted him to reside in the mutt and receive "Thirtha" and "Prasadams".

Venkanna studied the lessons on "the Sudha" with earnestness and learnt them by heart everyday. He would get difficult portions explained by his teacher. The teacher was deeply impressed by the pupils devotion and faith and began to look upon him with affection. This roused the jealousy of other pupils, who planned to bring forth the teacher's wrath on Venkatanatha.

One day the jealous classmates went to Sri Sudhindra without the knowledge of Venkanna. They said "O preceptor! The new-comer, Venkanna, is not studying his lessons well. He is always sleepy and indulging in unbecoming in actions. It is waste to feed and teach such a pupil. He is unfit to reside in the Mutt. So, we request you to drive him out". They uttered many lies to strengthen their argument. The Swami heard them and replied "Don't worry, I shall enquire about him and set him right, you had better go away". After a while, all the pupils came to learn their lessons. Sri Sudhindra commenced teaching. But having some doubt in explaining a portion. He told the pupils to come next day and said he would explain it then.

A shortriem village with a population of 1212 on the bank of the Thungabhadra in the extreme north of the thaluk. The village is widely known as containing the tomb of the Madhwa Saint Sri Raghavendra swamy. The annualt festival in agust which is attended by the large number of pilgrims, including even Lingayats from the Bombay , the Nizam's Dominions and even Mysore . The tomb itself is not of architechural interest. The grant of the landed endowment attached to it, is said one of the Mackenzie Mss, to have been made by Venkanna Pant, the well known Dewan of Siddhi Masud Khan, Governor of Adoni, from 1662 to 1687.

A quaint story of Sri Thomas Munro is told about the place. The endowment being threatened with resumption, Munro, it is said, came to make enquiries, after removing his boots and taking of his hat he, approached the grave. The saint thereupon emerged from his tomb and met him. They conversed together for some time regarding the resumption, but though the saint was visible and audible to Munro, who was himself, the people declare, semi-divine, none of the others, who were there could either see him or hear what he said. The discussion ended. Munro returned to his tent and quashed the proposal to resume the endowment. Being offered some consecrated rice, he accepted it and ordered it to be used in the preparation of his meals for that day.

Venkanna was in the habit of listening to the lessons on "Sri Sudha" with concentration, and noting the explanations in a note-book, at night, before going to sleep. As usual, he noted down correctly what he had learnt that day and went to sleep. After a short while Sri Sudhindra came to see him. Venkanna was in deep sleep.. There were some palmyrah leaves with writings on them. The teacher took them up and observed them. Venkanna was writing a regular annotation for "Sri Sudha" , entitled "Parimalam". He referred to the explanation for the statement about the meaning of which he had some doubt. Vekanna had explained it clearly and beyond any doubt. The teacher read it and his doubt was cleared fully. He felt happy to realise that vekantanatha's scholarship and ability were unrivalled. Just then Venkanna was shivering with cold as he had no blanket to cover himself with seeing this, Sri Sudhindra wrapped his own upper garment on the sleeping pupil, took the palmyrah leaves and went away.

Venkanna got up from sleep early in the morning. He was grieved at the disappearance of the manuscripts he had by his bed-side.. He was afraid of his teacher's wrath. He feared what punishment might befall him. He was at a loss to know how to convince his teacher of his innocence. Hoping for divine grace to get out of the trouble, he finished his bath and other activities, approached the Swami, prostrated himself before him and said, "O Guru! Someone covered my body with his cloth while I was asleep last night. My manuscripts are missing. I don't know who took them; I am not to blame.. Forgive me-"Sri Sudhindra replied, "Do not worry, it is time to begin the lessons, Let us go".

On seeing the other pupils the Swami said, Venkanna is not an ordinary person, He is a genius and a man of virtue. He is writing an annotation every night on what he has learnt during the day. Yesterday I had to dismiss the class as I could not find the correct explanation for a sentence. But last night Venkanna wrote the correct explanation for it in his book. You also had better listen to it." So saying he read out the explanation given by Venkanna in his book. All the peoples were astonished. Sri Sudhindra paid an encomium to the proficiency and skill of Venkanna and awarded him the title of "Parimalacharya", as he had written the commentary of "Parimala" on the teachings of "Sri Sudha". Ever since the other pupils showed Venkanna great respect and regard. The Swami's affection for him increased more than before.

After some days, Sri Sudhindra started on a pilgrimage, followed by his pupils. He visited various cities and villages and accepted the gifts and offerings given by the devotees and blessed them. In this manner, they reached Mathrai in the south. In that city was a Tamil sannyasi, who was well versed in grammer and was called a "Vaiyakarani". He was proud that no one could equal him in the knowledge of grammer. He wished to enter into a disputation on grammer with Sri Sudhindra . But the Swami said to him, "First you had better engage your self in a dispute with student, Venkatanatha . If you defeat him you can contest with me". The sanyasi agreed and commenced a disputation with Venkatanatha. On "Mahabhashya" venkatanatha was an adept in argumentation on all sastras. So he easily countered every one of the Sannyasi's arguments by his prowess and won over him finally. The Tamil sannyasi accepted defeat gracefully. Every one was struck with wonder on seeing the dexterity with which Venkatanatha had demolished. Everyone of the arguments proferred by the tamil sannyasi. Sri Sudhindra Swami was all admiration for his pupils excellence at argumentation. He at once blessed venkatanatha by conferring on him the title of "Mahabhashyacharya".

Shani being an agricultural planet, it indicates Implements used in farms/gardens. It denotes Disease, Limbs, knees, Dependents etc. Purana says Shani is opened with half his eyes and Shani is a great devotee of Lord Krishna. Let us see the connections between Shani Graha and Lord Venkateshwara Swamy of Tirumala.

Lord Venkateshwara Swamy took his avatar in Purattasi when Shani is said to reduce his negative power during this month as he is pleased with the Spirituality of this period due to both Pithru Kaaryams and Deva Kaaryams are performed. worshipping Vishnu, Fasting on Purattasi Saturday would please Shani graha.

  • During the Month of Purattasi, Pithru kaaryam are performed as Mahalaya Paksha Tarpanam with water and Gingelly seeds (Ellu)  to please Pithrus who descent to earth to their ordained rites from their descendants as Kanya Rasi represent South (dakshinayanam)since Pitru Loka is in southern Hemisphere.
  • Purattasi starts when, Athma karaghan Sun transit to Kanya Rasi where Sukran, Natural Enmity of Sun attains Neecha and Budhan, Lord of this Rasi goes uchcha both by Default. Sukran denotes Material life/ Enjoyment which are kept away during this month. Sun a Friendly Graha to Budhan by virtue of transit to kanya Rasi makes Lord Vishnu, Adi-devada of Budhan pleased during Purattasi.
  • Kanya Rasi denotes Earth and on Navarathiri celebrated in Purattasi Sri Bhudevi is worshipped first along with other goddess on all 9 days. Radha Janmashtami also falls in this period.
  • Mahalaya Amavasya day is the day of Ancestors worship for all Hindus irrespective of Caste/Creed cutting across Linguistic/ Local Customs. Shani is pleased during this period when food is offered to Ancestors in Different forms as Sun is Pitru karagha and father of Shani graha.
  1. Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) Avatar star is Sravanam which is in Makara Rasi owned by Saturn. Makara Rasi also denotes Earth in element and denotes our Karma Bhumi.
  2. On First Seva of Suprabhatam, the very first opening of golden Door of Moolavar is done by a Golla (cow herder-Edayan) in the presence of Priests from Jeer Mutt and Temple officials. This honour of giving first darshan to a shepherd is for his community services to Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) when he was in penance in Hill. Doors, Cowherds, gesture to them on first seva are the indications of Shanis karagathvam.
  3. The white spot (pacha karpuram) on the Chin of Lord Balaji reminds us the Hit suffered at the hands of Sri Ananthazhwar who had thrown an Iron spade on Lord when later came as an young Lad to help the Pregnant Wife of Ananthazhwar in their Dedicated Services in Nandavanam(Garden). Chin, tooth in Face are under the karagathvam of Saturn besides Iron Implements used in Farms, Garden, Labour help are also indicated by Shani. Even now one could see this crowbar in Entrance.
  4. Sage Bhrigu, who went on a mission to find out the most Satvic Nature among Trio, having failed to see this quality with Brahma and Sivan, came to Lord Vishnu and finding him in Yoga Nidhra without bothering him, kicked upon Lord chest which is the abode of Lakshmi. Sri Vishnu apologised to Bhrigu for hurting his feet which hit the hard chest and hence massaged the feet of sage. By this act, Lord made Lakshmi get Angered, Humiliated/Insulted to make her leave Vaikuntam to the Earth. Disgrace, Insults Humiliation, thus arised are due to Shanis karagathvam.
  5. Lord Venkateshwara Swamy was desperately wandering in earth without Food and sleep to find out Lakshmi who left Vaikuntham on above reason. He finally reached Sheshadhri and took shelter in an Ant-hill to Meditate. Desperation,wandering without food,disappointment are Shanis karagam.
  6. Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) Stayed in an Ant-Hill Under a Tamarind tree at Seshachalam and came out only to protect Cow and Calf (Brahma and Shiva) when a Shepherd tried to hit them, Emperuman Received the Blow on his Head and bleeded. Hence Golden Kireetam Presented by Akasa Raja is adorned on Fridays to Heal this injury. Ant Hill,Tamarind tree,Compassion in  receiving the  Blow are denoted by Shani...
  7. Sri AdhiVaraha was the First God to occupy and own this Hill who had permitted Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) to stay here on condition all pujas and Naivedyam must be offered to him First and all devotees of Lord Balaji must offer their worship to him First before going to Srivari temple. Dependent and one who is obligated permanently are under Shanis karagathvam.
  8. Vakulamalika, the old lady was directed by AdiVarahan to Render kainkaryum to Lord Venkateshwara Swamy when he was in penance in Ant-hill at Seshachalam. She was serving food to Lord then and rendering kainkarium. She was the incarnation of Yasoda and desired to see the marriage of Lord Venkateshwara Swamy as she could not see then the marriage of Lord Krishna with Rukmani and Sathya bhama. Pottu (Kitchen) in Temple is believed to be under the supervision of Vakulamalika. Compassion to Old aged Lady/ Gesture to Aged shows the influence of Shani graha.
  9. Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) Borrowed money from Kuberan for his marriage with Padmavathi by signing a Promissory note to pay with interest duly prepared by Brahma, witness signed by Siva and a peepal tree known as Ashwathm. Kubera is mentioned in Vedas as 'Chief of spirit of darkness and described as Dwarf, with  pot-belly, humpback, deformed ugly body with eight teeth, three legs and one small eye and a normal one. He is the Custodian of Nava nidhis of wealth to souls and half brother of Ravana. Permanent Debt, Mortgage and Financier, Ugly Description shows the influence of Shani graha.
  10. Due to Own Sankalpam, Lord Venkateshwara Swamy is away from his consort Padmavathi and stands alone in Tirumala while Thayar is in Thiruchanur Separately. Similarly Tirumala Hill is isolated from outside influence and confined to Spirituality. Shani Denotes Isolation, Seperation, spirituality.
  11. Tirumala Hill in 3200 Ft above the sea level is a mountainous region with Cold and Dry Climate invariably round the year. Mountains, Cold -Dry Climate, Rocks/ Stones denotes Shanis karagam.
  12. In Astronomy, various websites including Nasa.gov describe Saturn is Farthest planet from Earth and Saturn has SEVEN RINGS of thin flat consisting of numerous narrow ringlets made up of Ice particles that travel around the planet. Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) is also in SEVEN HILLs and called as 'Lord of Seven Hills".
  13. Tirumala is the only Hamlet in the world that has Four Dams for the tiny Town spread within a radius of 3 KM. All Four Dams were constructed on Holy Theerthams to meet the water Needs of town. Shani denotes Dams, Irrigation, Reservoir that retard/ slow/Regulate/reduce the Flow of Water.
  14. Dhruvabera (moolavar) apart from four Uttchavars: Bhoga Venkateshwara Swamy , Koulvu Venkateshwara Swamy , Ugra Venkateshwara Swamy and Malayappa Swami either together or separately participate in Various Rituals time to time. Golu Venkateshwara Swamy Darbar is Daily Routine Seva when Idol is brought out to kalyanamantapam to read before the Lord, the income such as Arjitha seva/Hundi collections on the previous day and expenditure followed by reading of Panchangam of previous/ current day. Koluvu Venkateshwara Swamy is offered with the prasadam of Mixture of Fried Gingelley Seeds (Ellu) and Jaggery. On Anivara Asthnam, a procedure performed during july every year, yearly accounts are submitted to Koulu Venkateshwara Swamy when new books are issued for Next financial year. Administration, Discipline, Prasadam including Gingelly seeds signify the influence of Shani Graha.
  15. Ugra Venkateshwara Swamy was the original Prachina Vigraham very long ago. Before Many centuries when this Idol was taken out exposing to sun rays, Big Fire was caught during Brahmotshvam. Lord gave a Divine Direction through an Archakar not to take out Ugra Venkateshwara Swamy . Since then, this idol is taken out for Procession Before Sun Rise on wee hours of Kaisika Dvadasi day only which is named after the Raga of song rendered by Devotee Chandala Nambadavan. Signifying the fact, Shani is for darkness and Sun is for light, Shani attains Uchcha in Thula Rasi where Sun is Neecha and Vice Versa in Mesha Rasi. It is believed when Shani opened his eyes first time, Sun went in to Eclipse. Darkness, Compassion to Low Caste Devotee and above episode shows Shanis Karagam.
  16. On Every Thursday, Tirupavadai Seva is Conducted when one can have 'Netra Darsanam' as otherwise the Deity Sports a wide Thiruman Kappu which almost Covers Half the Eyes of Lord and on this Seva When Thiruman Kappu is Peeled off, Lord First Gaze after opening Eyes fall on Mortals. Because It has so much power, it is made to fall on the Heap of 'Pulihora'(Tamarind Rice) directly in front of him thereby sanctifying it and reducing the intensity of his Gaze. This Tamarind Rice acts like a Paavada protetcing devotees from his powerful Gaze. Then Lord is adorned with a thin Thiruman kappu and this stays till Friday morning during Thirumanjanam. This reminds us the significance connected with the qualities( guna) of Shani graha.
  17. Lord Venkateshwara Swamy addressing Thirumalai Nambi as 'Thatha'(grandpa) came in disguise of an hunter to demand water from Nambi to quench his thirst by puncturing the pot which Nambi was bringing for Thirumanjanam to the Lord from far away Papavinasam. Next day, Emperuman again as same hunter approached Nambi and discharged an arrow near Hillock to create a fountain called as Akasaganga and showed him this nearby water spring. Grand Father is karagam of Shani.
  18. Adiseshan (First one to serve) serves Emperuman as Umbrella, Simhasanam, Paduka, bed. He will never get separated from Lord and render Kainkarium to him always. Adhiseshan manifested in the form of Seshachalam Hill to hold Lord Venkateshwara Swamy in his hood. To Honour his devotion and dedicated service, Lord Venkateshwara Swamy wears Nagabaranam in his Right hand. Faithful Servent and Selfless Services, Slaves are Shanis karagathvam.
  19. Annamayya (Annamachariar) was imprisoned by King Saluva Narasinga Raya of Penugonda when Saint refused to sing a song on king which he demanded similar to the song of Lord Venkateswara composed by Sri Annamayya. Saint who was in prison chained by shackles sang a song on Emperuman with agony and the divine power of song resulted in chains getting broken. Similar to this, Devotees are also imprisoned invariably without their knowledge when they pass through Vertical Cellular Enclosures: for Arjitha seva(paid) and Horizontal Cellular Enclosures (kunndu) on Free Sudarshan seva with many gates Closed/Opened and made to wait in Cells time to time. Shani Grahas Symbolic Sign is Four Small Squares in the shape of window. Hence Shani denotes Prison, Gate, Window, Chain, Warden. Interestingly Bhoga Venkateshwara Swamy is Permanently Chained with Moolavar by Golden Shackles.
  20. Tirumala is the largest Collection Center in the World for Human Hair, exporting to other nations for Amino acid production. Human Hair is Shanis karagathvam. Tradition believes that No one in Tirumala is supposed to adorn their hair (kesam) with Flowers to maintain Spirituality, Austerity, Humility and Simplicity reminding the directive of Sri Ramanujar. Hair (kesam), above gunas indicate Shanis influence.
  21. Lord Venkateshwara Swamy is subjetced to undergo pressure to give Darshan to Devotees almost 21 hours with only Breakup of just three Hours and His time for Partaking the Prasadam is limited only to just few minutes. Yet Lord is compassionate to give darshan to all devotees with little break which reminds the karagathvam of Shani graha on Hard work, Dedication to Work, patience, compassion.
  22. The Geological Survey of India (GSI) Declared Tirumala Hill as 'National Geological Monuments' for its Marvel on Eparchaean Unconformity as the Granite and Gneiss of Hill underwent 'Inundation by Sea' several Millions years ago and the presence of 'Ripple Marks' on the Quartzite Rocks bears Testimony to this fact. Another feature is 'Sila Thoranam' at a distance of 1 KM from temple wherein two rock groups precariously hang in the air with each others support forming an Arch. It is a portion of Quartzine left unsupported over a Width of 10 Metres and gap below the Arch is formed by Wind Erosion aided by action of water as Scientific fact is that TIRUMALA was completely UNDER SEA Several Millions years ago. As per various Puranas, Lord Venkateshwara Swamy made this hill as habitation on a day prior to 28 Mahayugas much before the present kaliyuga. Geological wonders, ancient period, Past, Time, History are Shanis karagam.
  23. Devotees Experience Delay often standing in Queue and while nearing the Thirumamani mandapam leading to Moolavar, they will tend to be 'Mudavan' by limping slowly to extend the duration of darshan of Lord and with the glimpse of Emperuman, they become 'Manthan" as they forget what they wanted to seek from Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji) and after coming out from Darshan, they are not able to recollect in Mind the Divine Swarupum of Lord Sri Venkateshwara Swamy (Balaji). Delay, Slowness, Desperation, are Shani's karagathvam. Also Shani is called as 'Mudavan'(lame) and 'Manthan'(inert mind) by nature.
  24. Devotees pray to Lord Venkateshwara Swamy with 'Prarthanai'(vow) by climbing the hill on Foot up to the temple, Tonsuring the Head, some times collecting money through 'Biksha', Rolling in Prakaram on Stone (angapradekshanam) etc. Tonsuring Hair will Make our Ego, self pride surrender to Lord, Rolling over Stone in Prakaram makes our body surrender to Emperuman. Rolling on Stone, Biksha, Climbing on foot, Fasting and other tough vows indicates the karagathvam of Shani.
  25. Old aged people, Handicapped, Disabled Devotees are given special Direct entry to have Darshan without any ticket which only in Tirumala Temple, this consideration is shown in line with the compassion of Lord Venkateshwara Swamy . Uttchva murti of Emperuman even reaches out masses nowadays in major cities, towns, villages and even crossing across the sea to bless all walks of people in their living places. Old, disabled, weaker section and masses(public) are denoted by Shani graha.
  26. Thirumala Tirupathi Devasthaanam (TTD) renders many Social Scheme like Free Food to all Devotees, Free accomodation, Free transport services, Carrying Luggage freely from downhill for devotees climbing hill on foot, Yearly One Lac Free Marriages, Rehabilitation centers for Blind, Deaf, Orphan Children, Old Aged Homes for Destitutes, Free medical treatment for poor, Free distribution of spectacles for old people, Hospitals, schools and colleges for socially backward and downtrodden people children are few to be mentioned. This Coincides with the Social outlook of Shani graha caring for poorer, aged, handicapped and people of ill-health besides the socially backward section.
  27. Dhruvabera(moolavar) idol does not conform to any agamic rule as Lord is above all rules with self manifested 'svayambhoo' with his eyes are in 'sama drishti' showing divine grace to devotees. Lord subjected himself to undergo 'Self Test' to Re-establish through Sri Ramanuja Muni that He is None other than Sriman Narayanan himself when doubts were raised then by few section. Also Uthsavar Malayappa swami is 'svayambhoo murti' (self manifested) when this idol was located in a place called 'malayappan konai' in hill. So he is called as 'malai kuniya Ninra Perumal". This Matches the guna of Shani in 'self testing' for TRUTH through Sanyasi as Truth and sages are denoted by Shani graha.

Like Hill which bent upon to receive Lord Malayappa swami Idol, Emperuman bent upon to bless the devotees who approach him with devotion and total surrender. Saturn is quite opposite to the quality of Conscious ego, personal pride, leadership, authority, generally akin to people normally influenced by Sun particularly politicians, government officials, personalities etc.They must seek the blessing of Lord with devotion and free from ego/ pride rather than mere confidence on the "Deal" of vow through Hundi otherwise they will have to experience "Raw deal" at the end.

Shani graha in this Kali yuga subjects us to undergo law of karma and makes us accept reality and finally leads us to the path of Dharma. King Dasaradhan, Thirukachi Nambi, Anjanayar all underwent few seconds of Shani grahas Negative results. Lord Venkateshwara Swamy has taken avatar as 'kali yuga kadavul' to bless us free from the evil efforts of Shani graha. Emperuman who is adorned with Ornaments Studded with full of Diamonds reflect the bright rays of hope for Devotees, the fact remains Millions of years before, those Diamonds were in the form of Black Carbon (Shanis karagam) subjected to pressure by Earth Crest. Crows in group called as 'Murder' is often Seen to Rest in Rajagopuram of Tirumala temple in the Early morning hours before Sun Rise. Similar to this, a visit to Thiruvenkatam would kill all our sins as the name itself implies this.

Those horoscopes afflicted by Sun-Shani Mutual aspect, if Shani is adverse to Lagna, and  not well placed with Shani Dasa running, a visit to Tirumala on Saturday preferably in Purattasi and on kaisika Dvadasi day to worship Ugra Venkateshwara Swamy with Prayaga Chakra in hand with his consorts when he is taken out on procession before Sun rise in wee hours would help them overcome difficulties.
