A special ‘abhishekam’, popularly known as ‘Sahasra Kalasabhishekam’, was offered to the processional deities on the fifth day of the ongoing Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavotsavams being held at the ACSR Stadium here on Wednesday.
The devotees, who arrived from different parts of Nellore district and surrounding areas, attended the ‘seva’ and offered their prayers. The daily ‘sevas’ were performed just as they would be carried out at the Tirumala main shrine during the week.
One thousand and eight silver vessels filled with ‘Abhisheka Thirtha’ otherwise known as the ‘Parimala Teertham’ were placed in the Mantapam in front of Bangaru Vakili. The ‘archakas’ recited ‘mantras’.
The ‘Thirumanjana Abhishekam’ was offered to Sri Bhoga Srinivasa Murthy, Sri Malayappa Swami and his consorts and Viswaksena.
On Thursday, another important weekly seva, Tiruppavada, known as ‘Annakutotsavam’ will be performed on the sixth day of the ongoing nine-day mega religious fete.
