Sri Srinivasa Kalyanam
“Māngalyam tantunānena mama jeevana hetunāh ||
Kanthe badhnāmi subhage twam jeeva saradā satam”
“O my bride, the source of all my spiritual riches, I tie this auspicious thread around your neck, which (shall be, symbolically,) the foundation and source of my life (hence-forth). I bless that you may live for hundred years. (And by this, I am blessed too as I pledge to be your partner in life)”
The name Kalyanam itself bestows all sorts of goodness(subham).
The Kalyana Utsav of Lord Balaji who is Pratyaksha Bhagavan in Kaliyug has the power of leading mankind to the right path and ultimately to salvation. Srinivasa Kalyanam, which is the symbolic celestial wedding of Lord Venkateswara with his two consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi, is performed for Lok Kalyan; to protect Dharma; for the welfare and well-being of the world; to protect His devotees during Kaliyug from the evils of Kali by residing on top of the Venkatadri hills.
On this auspicious occasion of Navratri, Hertfordshire Telugu Association – HTA Family, cordially invites your family & friends to witness and take part in this celestial wedding and take blessings of the divine couple!
