As a part of holy Dhanurmasa Dharmic programs,  TTD is organising  Tiruppavai Pravachanams at Tirupati and in all 216 centres across the country from December 17- January 14, under the aegis of the Alwar Divya Prabandha project.

The special feature of the Dhanur masa program is that in the place of Suprabhatam, Tiruppavai is being observed in all Sri Vaishnava temples during that one month.

In Tirupati, Tiruppavai will be recited at Annamacharya Kalamandiram.

Andal Sri Goda Devi, one among the 12 Alwars, had observed Dhanurmasa Vratam for the prosperity, and health of humanity. She penned 30 Pasuras in Tiruppavai Divya Prabandham about the vratam procedure.

The tradition is in practice at all Sri Vaishnava temples where Tiruppavai Sattumora is held annually during the holy Dhanur masam.

Superior Quality of ANnaprasadam at Tirumala

TTD Chairman Sri Bhumana Karunakara Reddy said that TTD topped the religious institutions which provided high-quality of Annaprasadam to lakhs of devotees from all over the world who throng the hill shrine every day.

Speaking to media on Tuesday the TTD Chairman lamented that a section of social media had campaigned that some devotees had staged a protest recently at Matrusri Tarigonda Vengamamba Annaprasadam Complex.

He said around 15 persons in the dining hall amongst 700 other pilgrims had pointed out the quality of food at Annaprasada Bhavan. He said TTD will never compromise on the quality. But these persons who complained about the food quality tried to intimidate others which is absolutely wrong in a pilgrim centre.

He said the food habits are personally divergent but in pilgrim centres devotees have to observe patience. TTD is ever prepared to set right any lapses, if any.
