Annamacharya Project

Annamacharya Project
Sri Annamacharya Festival

Overview

Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya was a saint composer in the fifteenth century, who hailed from the Tallapaka village, in the Rajampet mandal of Cuddapah district, Andhra Pradesh, India. Annamacharya was the very first vaggeyakara (composer) in Telugu and established a tradition which was later followed by a number of saint composers like Tyagaiah and Kshetraiah.

Annamacharya composed 32,000 keertanas (devotional songs) in praise of Lord Venkateswara.

The Annamacharya Project was established in 1978 with a view to propagate the tatwa andmahatwa of Lord Sri Venkateswara.

Using the vast creative literature of the Tallapaka poet, the Annamacharya project seeks to inculcate Madhura Bhakti and Saranagati to Lord Venkateswara, amongst the public.

The project functions through three wings – Music, Research and Publications, and Recording.

Music Wing

Young and talented artistes, in both vocal and instrumental music, form music troupes which perform across India – in temples, music sabhas (concerts), important pilgrim centres, educational institutions, villages and other cultural organisations.

Every year Annamacharya Vardhanti festivals are conducted in Tirumala, Tirupati and Tallapaka, the birth place of Annamacharya. Annamacharya Jayanti festivals are also conducted at the national level.

Group rendering of Annamacharya Saptagiri sankeertanas by eminent musicians and artistes belonging to the project is organised in Andhra Pradesh during the Annamacharya Vardhanti and Jayanti festivals. Annamacharya Aradhana Festivals are also conducted every year.

Annamacharya keertanas are rendered daily during the Unjal Seva of Srivaru in the Tirumala temple, and in other local TTD-managed temples. Annamacharya has composed a number of folk versions of his keertanas like, Jajaras, Dampulla songs, Suvvi songs, Elapadas and duets. Music concerts, Harikathas and folk programs are conducted regularly.

The Annamacharya Project plans to introduce a two-year certificate course, in which young music artistes will be provided with intensive training in Annamacharya compositions. The objective of this course is to familiarise young artistes with the literature and music of Annamacharya Vangmayam.

Research & Publications Wing

On behalf of the Annamacharya Project, research fellowships are granted to young researchers who pursue doctoral programmes on Annamacharya’s life and works. To date, nearly 50 dissertations have been produced by different universities. Efforts are on to obtain technical recognition from Sri Venkateswara University to streamline research activities with a techno-academic outlook.

Annamacharya’s compositions and the works of other Tallapaka poets are printed and published from time to time, according to the demand from devotees and researchers.

Recording Wing

To popularise Annamacharya’s songs, audio cassettes are produced and marketed. The recording work is carried out by the Sri Venkateswara Recording project in co-ordination with the Annamacharya project.

Artistes belonging to the Annamacharya project, as well as other professional artistes lend their voices for recording. Music stalwarts like M S Subbulakshmi, M Balamurali Krishna, Voteti Venkateswarlu, Nedunuri Krishnamurthy, Nookala Chinna Sathyanarayana, Mani Krishnaswamy, Vani Jayaram, Sobha Raju and others have lent their voices to the cause of the project.

Conservation of Water and Forests – Haritha Project

Conservation of Water and Forests – Haritha Project
The Haritha Project was launched by TTD at a cost of 1.5 crore to conserve ground water resources and the forests on the Tirumala Hills.

Developmental activities are being taken up on a massive scale under this project by the TTD Forest Department, based on the satellite image of the areas provided by the State Forest Department.

Objectives

  • To conserve rain water and improve the ground water level
  • To plant about 1 crore saplings
  • To green 29,500 acres of forest area, belonging to TTD and the State government, within 3 years
  • To protect the forests from fire
  • To develop the areas adjoining the important tirthas.

Conservation of Water

TTD has constructed several cement checkdams, contour trenches, masonry embankments and percolation tanks to prevent the rain water from draining off the Seshachala Hills.

Eighty kilometre long peripheral trenches have been dug from Rangampeta to Kodur. Besides, 89 checkdams, 136 Gabrion checkdams, 3884 rock fill dams have been built. Check dams have also been constructed on the first and second ghat roads from Tirupati to Tirumala to prevent the draining of water and the erosion of soil.

These sustained efforts have contributed in a substantial improvement in the ground water level. A report given by the Department of Groundwater mentions an increase of 3.155 million cubic metres and 6.59 million cubic metres of recharge in groundwater in the years 2000 and 2001 respectively.

Planting of Seedlings

Over 65 lakh seedlings such as those of Red Sanders, Margosa, Teak, Sampangi, Tamarind, Gooseberry and Blackberry have been planted under the Haritha project. Over 40 tons of seeds of Margosa, Tamarind and Blackberry have also been planted.

Protection from Forest Fires

To protect the forests on the hills from fires, 130 kilometre-long fire lines have been constructed, besides 60 kilometre-long fire walls. A special squad carrying walkie talkies has been appointed to report forest fires, facilitating immediate action

Development of areas adjoining the Holy Tirthas

One of the main objectives of the Haritha Project is the development of areas around the important tirthas on the Tirumala Hills. 20,000 saplings have been planted in the premises of
S.V. Ruia Hospital, BIRRD, SVIMS and the Ayurveda Hospital. Avenue plantation has been
carried out on the Tirupati – Renigunta road and Tirupati – Tiruchanoor road, covering a
distance of 15 kilometres.

Our Temples symbolize India’s hallowed culture and sanatana dharma. Temples, which are the repositories of sculpture, paintings, music, literature, dance and other art forms, are built for the prosperity and well-being of all people. According to sastras, God manifests Himself in the images and fulfils the desires of the devotees on account of the spiritual penance of the great sages who consecrated the deities in the temples and the regular rituals performed there and due to the enchanting beauty of the idols, which conform to the silpa agamas. It is the bounden duty and responsibility of every Indian to preserve these temples, which are the centers of vedic culture, to renovate any dilapidated portion of the temples or rebuild them. It may be the vimana or prakara, balipeetha or dwajasthambha or it may be even the main idol. It is said natural disasters like flood and drought may occur not only in the villages where such ruined temples are located but also in the entire country.

Many acharyas have expressed their displeasure at raising new temples indiscriminately and stressed the need for preserving the ancient temples consecrated by the great sages – they may be temple – like edifices, which reflect the glory of vedic culture and religion or places of archeological interest.

It is an uphill task for individuals alone to undertake their preservation and renovation. With a view to accomplish this lofty aim, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams has launched ‘Sri Venkateswara Heritage Preservation Trust’.

‘Karta Kartayite chaiva preraka syanu modaka, which means one who organizes an dexecutes a noble task, encourages, approves and derives pleasure from it, enjoys all fruits of such a meritorious act.

We earnestly appeal to all philanthropists to contribute generously to ‘Sri Venkateswara Heritage Preservation Trust’ and participate in this sacred endeavor. There is need for renovating dilapidated temples in every village and in every town for universal welfare. The donors can contribute any amount towards this scheme.

Background of TTD’s Formation

In 1933, the Madras Legislature passed a special act, which empowered the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Committee to control and administer a fixed group of temples in the Tirumala-Tirupati area, through a Commissioner appointed by the Government of Madras. This committee was assisted by a Religious Advisory Council for religious matters and a Ryots Advisory Council for the management of TTD’s estates.

In 1951, the Act of 1933 was replaced by an enactment whereby the administration of TTD was entrusted to a Board of Trustees, and an Executive Officer was appointed by the Government .

In 1956, the state of Andhra Pradesh was formed, and the TTD Board came under its governance.The provisions of the Act of 1951 were retained by the Charitable and Religious Endowments Act, 1966. Today, TTD is a conglomeration of temples, brought under the First Schedule 2 of Act 30 of 1987.

Darshan at Sri Venkateswara Temple

As more than fifty thousand pilgrims visit the Sri Venkateswara Temple every day, TTD has organised efficient systems to ensure the smooth movement of pilgrims.

Vaikuntam Queue Complex

Vaikuntam Queue Complex

The entrance for darshan is through the Vaikuntam Queue Complex. The complex is a series of inter-connected halls that leads to the main temple. An efficient queue system ensures that pilgrims move in an orderly fashion through the Queue Complex, towards the main temple.

The halls in the Queue Complex are clean, spacious and airy.TTD provides a wide range of facilities in the Queue Complex:

  • Food is provided for the waiting pilgrims free of cost.
  • Milk, Coffe & Tea provided for waiting pilgrims free of cost.
  • Medical aid

  • Toilets
  • Closed Circuit Television, through which devotional programmes and music are relayed
  • Cloak rooms near the Vaikuntam Queue Complex entrance
  • Places where footwear can be deposited, free of cost (at the entrance)

There are officers to look after the facilities in the Vaikuntam Queue Complex, regulate the queues and attend to complaints.

Sarvadarsanam

Sarvadarsanam means ‘darshan for all’. The timings for Sarvadarsanam are different on different days of the week. Please refer the weekly temple programme for the timings.

On normal days, about 18 hours are allotted for Sarvadarsanam and on peak days, it is open for 20 hours.

Tirumala-Tirupati

Bird's-eye view of the Sri Venkateswara Temple areaThe town of Tirupati is one of the most ancient and spectacular places of pilgrimage in India. It is situated in the Chittoor district in southern Andhra Pradesh. The town owes its existence to the sacred temple of Lord Sri Venkateswara situated on the Tirumala Hill adjoining it. With a history that dates back to over twelve centuries, the temple is the jewel in the crown of ancient places of worship in southern India.

The Tirumala Hill is 3200 ft above sea level, and is about 10.33 sq miles in area. It comprises seven peaks, representing the seven hoods of Adisesha, thus earning the name, Seshachalam. The seven peaks are called Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrishabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri.

The sacred temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatadri (Venkata Hill), and lies on the southern banks of Sri Swami Pushkarini. There are several legendsassociated with the manifestation of the Lord in Tirumala.

The name Tirupati, meaning the ‘the Lord of Lakshmi’ should have been appropriately applied to the village on the Venkata Hill, the abode of the Lord. However, it has been popularly assigned to the Municipal town at the foot of the Hill, while the village around the Hill near His temple is called Tirumala (the Sacred Hill).

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) maintains twelve temples and their sub-shrines in the Tirumala-Tirupati area.

There are several places to visit in the Tirumala-Tirupati area.

Test of the Three Divinities

At the commencement of the Kali Yuga, Vishnu left Venkatadri for Vaikuntam. Brahma was very unhappy with his departure and asked Narada to persuade Vishnu to return to Venkatadri. Narada then went to the banks of the River Ganga, where several rishis were performing a sacrifice. The rishis could not decide as to whom they intended to dedicate the fruit of their sacrifice. Bhrigu, one of the rishis undertook to solve the problem by examining the three chief divinities.

Bhrigu at SatyalokamHe first went to Satyalokam, the abode of the three-headed Brahma (who is also attributed to have four heads) and found him busily chanting the Vedas with one face, uttering the name of Narayana with another and looking at Goddess Saraswati with the third. He took no notice of Bhrigu. Bhrigu resented the want of courtesy on the part of Brahma.
Bhrigu at KailasamBhrigu then went to Siva’s abode (Kailasam). Here too, he found Siva absorbed in sporting with his consort. Siva even became indignant at Bhrigu’s intrusion.

Bhrigu at VishnulokamFinally, Bhrigu went to Vaikuntam, the abode of Vishnu and found Vishnu and Sri Maha Lakshmi reclining on Adisesha. Disgusted, Bhrigu kicked Vishnu on the chest, where Sri Maha Lakshmi was reclining. Vishnu immediately got up, massaged the rishi‘s foot and enquired if he had been injured. Pleased with Vishnu’s attention, Bhrigu returned to the rishis and advised them to dedicate the fruit of their sacrifice to Vishnu.

Sri Maha Lakshmi was angry with Bhrigu because he had kicked the spot which was her favourite resort on the bosom of the Lord. She left Vishnu and went to stay at Karavirapura (now Kolhapur in the state of Maharashtra). Unable to bear the solitude, Vishnu left Vaikuntam in search of Sri Maha Lakshmi.

This was how he made his way to Venkatadri, and entered the ant-hill under the tamarind tree on the southern bank of Swami Pushkarini on the Tirupati hill.

Contest between Adisesha and Vayudeva

During the Dwaparayuga, Vayudeva (the Wind God) went to Vaikuntam to pay his obeisance to Lord Sri Vishnu. The Lord was reclining in the company of Sri Lakshmi. The doorway was guarded by Adisesha. Vayudeva was incensed when Adisesha prevented him from entering Sri Vishnu’s mansion. Adisesha and Vayudeva began to fight with each other.

When Lord Vishnu intervened, each was boasting of his superior valour and supreme might. To test who was stronger, the Lord suggested that Adisesha encircle the Ananda hill, an off-shoot of the Meru mountain on its northern side, and that Vayudeva blow hard to try and dislodge the Ananda hill from Adisesha’s hold. The contest waxed furiously, and as the World trembled, Brahma, Indra and the other Divine Beings requested Adisesha to yield victory to Vayudeva for the welfare of the world.

Obliging them, Adisesha released his hold on the hill. As a result, Adisesha and the Ananda hill were blown away to the banks of the river Swarnamukhi. Adisesha was dejected by his defeat. Lord Brahma and the others appealed to him by saying that he would be merged with the hill Venkatadri and Vishnu would reside on him. Adisesha then metamorphosed into the vast Seshadri, with his hood manifesting itself as Venkatadri sustaining Sri Venkateswara, his middle as Ahobila supporting Lord Narasimha, and his tail as Srisailam bearing Lord Mallikarjuna (Lord Siva).

Restoration of the Earth by Adi Varaha

During the eight thousand yugas (the equivalent of a day and night for Brahma, the Creator), there was a raging fire, and everything on Earth was reduced to ashes. Man had to forsake the Earth and seek refuge in Janaloka.

At the approach of night (of Brahma), Vayu, the Wind God, blew furiously. Huge clouds were formed, there was torrential rain, and it resulted in Pralaya Kalpa (the Great Deluge). The Earth sank into the Patala loka, and remained in that state for a thousand years (during a part of that night of Brahma).

Sri Adi Varaha bringing up the Earth on His tusks

Sri Maha Vishnu, wanted to rescue the Earth. He assumed the form of AdiVaraha and proceeded to Pataloka. He fought a fierce duel with Hiranyaksa and killed him. He then slashed the water and brought up the Earth on his tusks.

Brahma, the Devas and the sages extolled Adi Varaha’s virtues, by chanting the Vedic mantras. They prayed to Him to re-establish the Earth as before. Adi Varaha obliged them, and called upon Brahma to recreate the world. He expressed his desire to reside on the Earth to protect its people. He commanded his vehicle, Garuda to fetch Kridachala (a massive natural hill with lofty peaks, embedded with gold and precious stones, and which resembled Adisesha in shape) from Vaikuntam.

Garuda brought Kridachala and deposited it on a sacred spot (to the East of Swami Pushkarini) chosen by Adi Varaha. Adi Varaha stood within the divine vimana of Kridachala, which shone with many gem-studded gopuras.

Brahma and the other holy personages requested the fearsome-looking Adi Varaha to assume a tranquil and composed look, and rest on the hill to protect men and grant boons to people unable to reach God through Dhyana Yoga (meditation) and Karma Yoga (doing one’s own duty).

Adi Varaha appeared with four arms and a white face. He was adorned with jewels and accompanied by Bhu Devi. He resolved to stay at Venkatadri, under a divya vimana, to grant the prayers of men.

Temple Legends

Sri Venkatachala Mahatmya is referred to in several Puranas, of which the most important are the Varaha Purana and the Bhavishyottara Purana.

The printed work contains extracts from the Varaha Purana, Padma Purana, Garuda Purana, Brahmanda Purana, Markandeya Purana, Harivamsa, Vamana Purana, Brahma Purana, Brahmottara Purana, Aditya Purana, Skanda Purana and Bhavishyottara Purana. Most of these extracts describe the sanctity and antiquity of the hills around Tirumala and the numerous teerthams situated on them.

The legends taken from the Venkatachala Mahatmya and the Varaha Purana, pertaining to the manifestation of the Lord at Tirumala, are of particular interest.

According to the Varaha Purana, Adi Varaha manifested Himself on the western bank of the Swami Pushkarini, while Vishnu in the form of Venkateswara came to reside on the southern bank of the Swami Pushkarini.

One day, Rangadasa, a staunch devotee of Vishnu, in the course of his pilgrimage, joined Vaikhanasa Gopinatha, who was going up the Tirumala Hill for the daily worship of Lord Venkateswara. After bathing in the Swami Pushkarini, he beheld the lotus-eyed and blue-bodied Vishnu beneath a tamarind tree. Vishnu was exposed to the sun, wind and rain and was only protected by the extended wings of Garuda.

Rangadasa was astounded by the wonderful sight. He raised a rough wall of stones around the deity, and started supplying flowers faithfully to Gopinatha everyday for Vishnu’s worship.

One day, Rangadasa was distracted by a Gandharva king and his ladies. Consequently, he forgot to supply flowers to Gopinatha for Vishnu’s worship. The Lord then revealed Himself and told Rangadasa that He had been testing the latter’s continence, but Rangadasa had not been steadfast and had succumbed to temptation.

However, the Lord accepted and appreciated Rangadasa’s devoted service to Him till then, and blessed Rangadasa that he would be reborn as an affluent ruler of a province and would enjoy the earthly pleasures. He would continue to serve the Lord, construct a beautiful temple with avimana and high surrounding walls, and thereby earn eternal glory.

Rangadasa was reborn as Tondaman, the son of the royal couple, Suvira and Nandini. Tondaman enjoyed a pleasurable life as a young man. One day, he set out on a hunting expedition on the Tirumala Hill, and with the help of a forester, saw Vishnu under the tamarind tree. Tondaman returned home, deeply affected by the vision of Vishnu.

Tondaman later inherited his father’s kingdom, Tondamandalam. In accordance with the directions given by Adi Varaha to a forester, Tondaman constructed a prakaram and dvara gopura, and arranged for regular worship of the Lord (according to Vaikhanasa Agama).

In the Kali Yuga, Akasaraja came to rule over Tondamandalam. His daughter Padmavathi was married to Venkateswara. The marriage, officiated by Brahma, was celebrated with great pomp and splendour.

Temple History

Temple History
There is ample literary and epigraphic testimony to the antiquity of the temple of Lord Sri Venkateswara.Sri KrishnadevarayaAll the great dynasties of rulers of the southern peninsula have paid homage to Lord Sri Venkateswara in this ancient shrine. The Pallavas of Kancheepuram (9th century AD), the Cholas of Thanjavur (a century later), the Pandyas of Madurai, and the kings and chieftains of Vijayanagar (14th – 15th century AD) were devotees of the Lord and they competed with one another in endowing the temple with rich offerings and contributions.

It was during the rule of the Vijayanagar dynasty that the contributions to the temple increased. Sri Krishnadevaraya had statues of himself and his consorts installed at the portals of the temple, and these statues can be seen to this day. There is also a statue of Venkatapati Raya in the main temple.

After the decline of the Vijayanagar dynasty, nobles and chieftains from all parts of the country continued to pay their homage and offer gifts to the temple. The Maratha general, Raghoji Bhonsle, visited the temple and set up a permanent endowment for the conduct of worship in the temple. He also presented valuable jewels to the Lord, including a large emerald which is still preserved in a box named after the General. Among the later rulers who have endowed large amounts are the rulers of Mysore and Gadwal.

After the fall of the Hindu kingdoms, the Muslim rulers of Karnataka and then the Britishers took over, and many of the temples came under their supervisory and protective control.

In 1843 AD, the East India Company divested itself of the direct management of non-Christian places of worship and native religious institutions. The administration of the shrine of Sri Venkateswara and a number of estates were then entrusted to Sri Seva Dossji of the Hatiramji Mutt at Tirumala, and the temple remained under the administration of the Mahants for nearly a century, till 1933 AD.

In 1933, the Madras Legislature passed a special act, which empowered the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams(TTD) Committee to control and administer a fixed group of temples in the Tirumala-Tirupati area, through a Commissioner appointed by the Government of Madras.

In 1951, the Act of 1933 was replaced by an enactment whereby the administration of TTD was entrusted to a Board of Trustees, and an Executive Officer was appointed by the Government .

The provisions of the Act of 1951 were retained by Charitable and Religious Endowments Act, 1966.

About Sri Venkateswara Temple

About Sri Venkateswara Temple

The ancient and sacred temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatachala (Venkata Hill) of the Tirupati Hill, and lies on the southern banks of Sri Swami Pushkarini.

It is by the Lord’s presidency over Venkatachala, that He has received the appellation, Venkateswara (Lord of the Venkata Hill). He is also called the Lord of the Seven Hills.

The temple of Sri Venkateswara has acquired unique sanctity in Indian religious lore. The Sastras, Puranas, Sthala Mahatyams and Alwar hymns unequivocally declare that, in the Kali Yuga, one can attain mukti, only by worshipping Venkata Nayaka or Sri Venkateswara.

The benefits acquired by a piligrimage to Venkatachala are mentioned in the Rig Veda and Asthadasa Puranas. In these epics, Sri Venkateswara is described as the great bestower of boons. There are several legends associated with the manifestation of the Lord at Tirumala.

The temple has its origins in Vaishnavism, an ancient sect which advocates the principles of equality and love, and prohibits animal sacrifice.

The sanctum sanctorum which houses the awe-inspiring idol of the Lord of the Seven Hills is situated in the main temple complex of Tirumala.

SIXTH PHASE OF KALYANAMASTU ON MAY 20

Tirupati, 24 Feb 2011(P.R.O) The sixth phase of Kalyanamastu-the mass marriages programme by TTD is all set to take place across the state on May 20, said TTD EO Sri IYR Krishna Rao.

Addressing the media persons in a press conference held at TTD administrative building in Tirupati on Thursday, the EO said, the kalyanmastu programme is intended to help poor people in the Hindu community, who cannot bear the expenses of marriage. “So far TTD has successfully carried out five phases of mass marriages and 34,017 couples tied the knots in the last five phases apart from another 59 couples who got married in the maiden Kalyanamastu programme carried out at Chennai”, he said.

The EO said, “A four-member team of experts comprising TTD court astrologer Sri Tangirala Prabhakara Purnaiah Siddhanthi, Agama Advisors Sri Sundaravadana Bhattacharyulu and Dr.Vedantam Vishnu Bhattacharyulu, SV Veda Pathshala Principal Sri Srirama Murthy fixed the muhurat on May 20 between 9:52am to 10.04am which falls on Friday in Moola Nakshatra of Karkataka Lagnam in the auspicious month of Vaisakha and on the auspicious day of Bahula Tadiya”.

Sri Rao said, the TTD will organise the mass in all the constituency head quarters across the state with the co-operation from the state government. The date of registration for the couples will be announced shortly after holding discussions and teleconference with all the district collectors. This year also we involve the revenue department of the state government for more effective execution of the kalyanams. “Since we have more than two months time, by taking up extensive publicity activity we can ensure more public get benefited out of this noble and noval programme. The Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad(HDPP) under the supervision of its new secretary Sri Kasi Reddy Venkat Reddy will carryout this mass marriages programme”, he added.

The media conference was also attended by Tirupati Joint EO Dr.N.Yuvraj, HDPP Secretary Sri K.Venkat Reddy, DyEO HDPP Sri Umapathy Reddy and Deputy EO Recruitment Cell Smt Chenchu lakshmi.

Paapmochini Ekadashi March 30, 2011

Paapmochini Ekadashi March 30, 2011



The Chaitra Krishna Ekadashi is known as Paapmochini Ekadashi. On the day of Ekadashi, after bathing early in the morning following Sutra should be recited by the observers of the fast: **Mam kayak vachini maansik saansargik paatak uppaatak duritakshayapoorvakam shruti smriti puraanokta phal praaptaye shree parmeshvarpreenti kaamnayaa ekadasheevratam aham karishye.** Thereafter, worship lord Vishnu properly and recite stotra as per individual’s capacity. Do the Jaagran with spiritual songs (bhajan). Next day, after worshiping the lord observers should eat anything. Ekadashi is the most auspicious vrat dedicated to Lord Vishnu.It is believed that steadfast devotion and fasting even during a single Ekadashi occurence, brings the blessings of Vishu and liberation from the cycle of birth and death. One gains freedom from sins of the past through following Ekadashi fasting. Not surprisingly, in the present times the occasion of Ekadashi has become synonymous with fasting.
