3RD DAY OF SRI VARI SALAKATLA BRAHMOTSAVAM- PROCESSION OF SIMHA VAHANAM

3rd day2

THIRD DAY – SIMHA VAHANAM

 

Tirumala,  On the third day morning the Lord is taken out in a procession on Simha Vahanam. Simha- the Lion is a symbol of royalty and power. Lord assumed the form of half man and half lion in his Narasimha Avathara. Lord Sri Krishna says in Bhagavath Geetha that He is the Lion among the animals.

 

The  incarnation of Lord  Vishnu as the Mrugendrudu (most  ferocious and strong among the animals-Lion) is an indication of Lord Venkateswara as a powerful entity born to punish the erring anti-social elements on the universe and devoted for protection of the righteous, poor and the weaker sections in the society. Being a Simha, is the fourth avatar of Lord Vishnu in his incarnation as ‘Narasimha’ whom the puranas and legends speak involumes for his drive against ‘Dushta’(wrong  doors) and protection of the weak, poor and the god fearing  persons.

 

In the Yoga shastra – a Lion was seen as an embodiment of power and speed. The valor of Lord Venkateswara who had made such an animal as his vehicle is thus displayed in abundance. The statues of Lions in the Ananda Nilayam in the Srivari temple complex have displayed the affection of Lord Venkateswara for Lions.
