TTD has decided to make the varalakshmi vratham, which is performed every year during the holy month of Shravana, online (virtually) as per the wishes of the devotees. At a recent board meeting, it was decided that all possible services should be conducted online (virtual) and that the authorities be directed to take steps to maintain the Varalakshmi Vratham this year as well.
As part of this, TTD will provide the opportunity for devotees from all over the country and abroad to watch and participate in the Varalakshmi Vrata performed at the Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple through SVBC live streaming online. Viralakshmi Vratam tickets will be available from 5.00 pm on July 22. These will be available till 5.00 pm on July 30. Devotees can post their details on the TTD website and pay Rs. 1001 / for tickets. Fees for postal services for the delivery of goods are fixed.
Devotees participating in this Varalakshmi Vratham 2020 Online service will be sent to their address by post the offerings of Uttariyam, Ravikan, Pasupu, Saffron, Bracelets, Glasses offered in the first Shravana Friday Puja. The circumcision will be broadcast live on SVBC on July 31 from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon. Devotees participating in this ritual are required to recite their tribal names and concepts as per the instructions of the priestly lords. Priests will place a copy of the names of the householders who got the tickets online and the names of the tribes at the feet of the goddess.
As Varalakshmi Vratham 2020 is a completely online service, devotees who have registered their names and obtained tickets will not have the opportunity to participate in the Vratam directly at the Thiruchanur Ammavari Temple. Devotees abroad can obtain tickets online and participate in this ritual online (virtually), but it is not possible to send them prasadam.
