Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is introducing a random numbering system from November 1st this year to streamline some of the sevas and rare rituals. It appealed to couples who had booked seva tickets of Poorabhishekam and Melchat Vastram to report on the previous day of the seva at the Arjitha seva office in Tirumala. If any couple fails to report before the stipulated time, their respective seva tickets shall be issued under current booking through the random numbering system, an official said. TTD has cancelled bulk booking of tickets a couple of months ago to enable more number of pilgrims to book tickets of rare sevas like Poorabhishekam and Melchat Vastram. Sources said civet and Kasturi vessel abhishekam seva tickets are converted into Poorabhishekam seva tickets now.

Temple officials said some of the pilgrims who had booked these rare seva tickets much in advance were not turning out during the date of the seva and as a result, these tickets were going waste. “To avoid this, we have introduced this new system of transfer of seva tickets to current booking so that other pilgrims can avail themselves of these rare sevas,” a senior official said.

Sri Ananta Padmanabha Vratam was performed with religious fervor here on Sunday on the auspicious day of Bhadrapada Sukla Chaturdasi.In a ceremonial procession the Chakrattalwar was taken to Sri Varaha Swamy temple from Srivari temple by the temple priests amidst chanting of mantras.Abhishekam and special pujas were performed to the Sudarsana Chakram, and the Chakrattalwar was taken for a dip in the Swamy Pushkarini.
The Chakratalwar was then taken in a procession back to Srivari temple.

Chakrasnanam is performed on four occasions _ Brahmotsavams, Mukkoti Dwadasi, Ratha Saptami and Ananta Padmanabha Vratam — in a year by temple priests.At the holy feet of the presiding deity in the Srivari temple, the priests performed Sri Ananta Padmanabha Vratam by reciting the Vrata Mahatyam.Later, the holy threads (Vrata deeksha kankanam) were distributed to archakas and temple officials.Board chairman K Bapi Raju, who participated in the vratam, told reporters later that Hindu dharma ordains one to perform Ananta Padmanabha Vratam for 14 years for one’s well-being.

“Our family has been performing this vratam for the past 12 years.I feel blessed for getting an opportunity to perform the vratam at the abode of Lord Venkateswara this year,’’ he said.The joint executive officer K S Srinivasa Raju, chief vigilance and security officer MK Singh, additional CVSO Sivakumar Reddy, water works executive engineer Narasimha Murthy and other officials were also present.
