Pushpa Danam during Gaja Mala Seva.

Offering flowers to the Lord is an integral and an important part of worship. It signifies submission of self to the Lord. Lord Venkateswara is popularly known as Alankarapriya, one who loves good dress, jewelry and garlands. Hence his treasury is full of gold and silver trinkets and garlands for specific occasions and rituals including his public appearance events, processions and Unjal sevas etc. All deities will be decorated with the garlands and flowers and special Alankaram will be done on specific events such as Srinivasa Kalyanam, Siva Kalyanam, Ganesh Chaturthi, Brahmotsavam and Navaratri celebrations, Shivaratri etc. Since the flowers and garlands play a major role in life and rituals of temple, ICCT has made special efforts to bring fresh flowers and scented leaves and other accompaniments used in making of garlands and decorations.

Annadanam

Annadanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe

These are the verses from the Vedas which mean that Annadanam is supreme and incomparable to any charity. Food is the basic requirement for all humans. Thus according to the Vedas, the one who does Annadanam to devotees attains heaven (Punya Loka) in this universe (Brahmanda) itself. In this whole universe, the creation and its progression depends on food. Hence giving food to the devotees is more than attaining heaven.
