      1. thank you for your humple reply,
        I am planning a visit to tirupathi for blessings and guidance and i will visit kanipakkam and kalahasthi temples also for hairs.

        1. Dear Karthikeya
          Thats fine. Blessings of Lord Venkateshwara before starting of any venture is beneficial but first we should give our first respect and worship to Lord Ganesh. So visit Kanipakam first and then Thirumala and lastly Lord Shiva at Sri Kalahasthi is perfect worship.
          I wish all Success for your Busiess. Do start your business on a Pushyami Nakshathra that falls on a Sunday or Thursdays which is very auspicious that leads to success.
          Om Namah Shivaya
