Dressed as Cowherd Malayappa Rides Kalpavruksha Vahanam

Tirumala, 22 Sep. 20: With the traditional headgear, stick and flute Sri Malayappa Swamy blessed devotees on His in "Govula Gopanna" attire on the Kalpavruksa vahanam on the day four of the ongoing annual Brahmotsavams on Tuesday.


Flanked by His two consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi, Lord Malayappa graced on the Kalpavruksha Vahanam-the divine wish-fulfilling tree.


Legends says that Kalpavruksha was one of the elements that erupted during Samudra Madanam - the famous episode of Srimad Bhagavatam, the churning of the milky ocean using the serpent King Adisesha as a rope with Mandara Mountain as Chruner to extract Amritam-the holy nectar.


Those who took shelter under Kalpavruksha will not have problems of starvation and poverty. The use of Kalpavruksha vahanam by Lord Venkateswara also denotes the importance given to environment, greenery and promotion of forests with the pollution-free atmosphere. Lord Venkateswara who Himself is a ‘Kalpavriksha’ blesses every devotee with boons sought by them. 


Tirumala pontiffs Sri Sri Sri Pedda Jeeyarswami, Sri Sri Sri Chinna Jeeyarswami, TTD trust board chairman Sri YV Subba Reddy, EO Sri Anil Kumar Singhal, Board members Sri DP Ananta, Sri Shiv Kumar, Sri Shekar Reddy, Sri Govind Hari, Additional EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy, CVSO Sri Gopinath Jatti, Dyeo of Srivari temple Sri Harindranath, Peshkar Sri Jaganmohanacharyulu were also present.
