Tirumala: Lord Sri Venkateswara 's nine-day annual Brahmotsavams at Tirumala came to an end on Sunday with the Chakra Snanam results. The sacred Chakra Snanam, also called Avabhrida Snanam, was carried out in a newly installed mini Pushkarini (temple tank) within the Srivari temple facing Ayina Mahal, in view of the Covid-19 constraints, where the Snapana Tirumanjanam to the deities was carried out before the Chakra, sacred Disk, was immersed. The Sudarshana Chakra is a revolving, disc-like tool of Lord Maha Vishnu with 108 serrated points, according to Hindu scriptures. As an Ayudhapurusha (anthropomorphic form), the Sudarshana Chakra is often depicted. Amid the chanting of Veda Mantras, the Snapana Tirumanjanam to Sri Malayappa Swamy, Sridevi, Bhudevi and Sri Sudarshana Chakrattalwar was performed in a grand manner. Panchabhisheka Snanam was offered to the deities with milk, curd, honey, turmeric and sandal paste.
Later, in the sacred muhurtam, the Sudarshana Chakkrattalwar was ceremoniously carried to the tank and submerged in the waters. With this, the nine-day annual Brahmotsavams, which started in the Kanya Month at the advent of the Chitta Star, ended with Chakra Snanam in a great way on the Shravana star, the birth star of Lord Venkateswara. Also present were TTD Chairman Y V Subba Reddy, EO Anil Kumar Singhal, Board members Sekhar Reddy, Siva Kumar, DP Ananta, Nischita, Extra EO AV Dharma Reddy, Chief Engineer Ramesh Reddy, Temple Dy EO Harindranath, Peishkar Jaganmohanachary, DPP member Gundala Subba Rao and others.
