Tirupati

Ek Jeevan Darshan (Hindi Edition)

Overview

"This is translated from English book Tirupati written by Neelima Kota. For the first time ever, Tirupati: A Guide to Life analyses and connects the philosophy surrounding the god of Tirupati to the tests and tragedies of our everyday life. From what is considered a sin to what is dharma to anecdotes on sorrow, neglect, betrayal, and ways of finding wealth, success, and faith, the book bridges the generational gaps in relevance and application of ancient wisdom to modern life. It traces the divine and historical origins of the temple at Venkatachala, and provides a glimpse into the interior of the holy shrine—one of the world’s most important religious places. The book includes: • the list of festivals of Tirupati • vehicles of gods used for each festival • slokas read in the temple to wake up the Lord • dos and don’ts of the temple With a foreword by the head priest, this is the story and glory of Lord Sri Venkateswara, the god who loves His devotees, fulfils their desires, and redeems them. Tirupati: A Guide to Life is for all those who believe that destiny can be changed, and want to know how."
