The traditional Pushpa Yagam for Lord Sri Venkateswara was performed with religious fervour and vedic chanting in the presence of thousands of devotees at Tirumala on Thursday.
Nearly 7 metric tonnes, comprising 18 varieties of scented flowers including Sampangi, Chrysanthemum, Rose, Lilly, Tulasi, Jaji, Lotus, Kaluva, Manoranjitham and Bilvam were used for the ritual.
The Pushpa Yagam is performed in the month of Karthika after annual Brahmotsavam on the asterism of Sravanam. After performing two Archanas and two Naivedyams, the processional deities of Lord Malayappa Swamy flanked by his two consorts Sri Devi and Bhu Devi were brought to the Kalyananamandapam. Later, the pundits performed homa and Snapana Tirumanjanam. The deities were then given a celestial floral bath.
Meanwhile, the TTD has cancelled Arjitha Sevas like Vansanthotsavam and Shhasradeepalankarana Seva following Ankurarpanana on Wednesday and Sevas including Tiruppavadai, Kalyanotsavam, Unjal Seva on Thursday to reduce inconvenience for the devotees. (INN)
