Annavaram Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Kalyana Mahotsavam on Friday, May 5, 2017
The one which does not change (changeless) is SATYAM (TRUTH). JAGAT (world) is based on SATYAM. NARAM is GNANAM (knowledge) and AYANAM is AASTANAM (Place). Narayana is Aastanam of Gnanam. The true embodiment of knowledge is SATYANARAYANA.
The story of Sri Satyanarayana Swamy is from Skanda Purana of Reva Kanda. However, Bhagavan Sri Satyanarayana Swamy became widely popular in Annavaram, East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. Nityakalyanotsavam is performed for Satyanarayana Swamy in Annavaram, but Kalyana Mahotsavam performed on Vaishaka Shukla Ekadasi is a very special event.
The day of Vaishaka Shukla Ekadasi is very auspicious and Vasanta Kalyanotsavams are performed in all Vaishnava
Devalayas. On this day in our temple our archakas perform Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Abhishekam, Kalyana Mahotsavam and Vratam for the benefit of all devotees.
9:30 AM Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Abhishekam.
5:00 PM Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Kalyana Mahotsavam.
7:00 PM Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Vratam.
