VISAKHAPATNAM: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams’ (TTD) prestigious devotional campaign of Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavoutsavamulu-2014 (SVV) would once again have ‘Nithya Kalyanoutsavam’ event besides the special poojas on the concluding day Tuesday.
Considering the huge response for the Nithya kalyanoutsavam event, which was held last Sunday, the TTD authorities decided to host it once again at 6 pm Tuesday, to provide an opportunity to a large number of devotees, who missed the devotional event earlier said the TTD officials.
Addressing newsmen, TTD joint executive officer (JEO) P Bhaskara Rao requested the devotees who earlier participated to kindly allow other devotees, who missed the event last time, so that all devotees would have an opportunity to witness the auspicious programme.
He also admitted that though there was an idea to host the Nithya Kalyanoutsavam in the Bullaya College grounds to allow maximum number of devotees, the weather predictions were not supportive for an open air event.
There was no other option but to host the event once again at the Swarnabharathi Indoor Stadium. The final day of the SVV would have small changes in its special programmes for Nithya kalyanoutsavam in the evening. On holding SVV in other areas, the JEO said that they would conduct the SVV in all the districts of AP and even in Telangana, after receiving feedback from the officials and volunteers.
On the occasion, the TTD released a brochure on ‘Mana Gudi’, which would be started on August 8 in all major temples of the state.
Religious speaker Chaganti Koteswara Rao gave out the details and said that the TTD programmes would bring God closer to the people. The essence and details of the ‘Mana Gudi’ programme would be explained by Koteswara Rao through TTD’s official channel SVBC on August 6 and August 7, said the JEO.
