The term utsavam means "festival" or "joyous occasion". At our Temple several festivals and utsavas are performed to foster peace and devotion in the community and to strengthen both our individual and collective devotional involvement in our continuous effort to seek the Ultimate. Several such festivals are enumerated in the Puranas, Among these various festivals (Utsavams), one utsavam has an unique standing and is known as Brahmotsavam! According to the legend (Varaha Puranam), this utsavam was first celebrated by the Creator, Sri Brahma, Himself in honor of Lord Venkateswara, and so it came to be known as Brahmotsavam! Lord Venkateswara (Srinivasa or Balaji) is worshipped as the incarnation of Lord Sri Narayana and hailed as the Lord of Kali Yuga! There are many legends that describe the incarnation of Maha Vishnu as Srinivasa, His marriage with Padmavati who is the incarnation of Goddess Maha Lakshmi, His choice of His abode at the Tirumala Hills.
