India Trip 2020 | The Avatara & Nine Planetary Temples Trip
Tirupati & Chennai | 05 to 19 February 2020
This trip is dedicated to the Avatara Temples of Lord Vishnu near Tirupati and Nine Planetary Temples of Chennai. Avatara are incarnations of Lord Vishnu each related to a planet..
The trip includes a visit to Tirumala temple dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara, which is on the seven hills owned by Lord Varaha who is the Rahu incarnation (Avatara) of Lord Vishnu. Each Avatara is connected to a planet. The incarnation temples we will visit are Sri Rama (Sun), Krishna (Moon), Narasimha (Mars), Parashurama (Venus), Varaha (Rahu) and Matsaya (Ketu). We will also visit other powerful temples for Goddess Lakshmi, Sri Vishnu and Lord Shiva and many rare temples.
In Chennai, we will visit the nine planetary temples. Each of the temples will be visited on its appropriate day (e.g. Thursday for Jupiter Temple) and abhishekas have been organized at all the nine planetary temples. This is going to be a very powerful experience. The costs of the Abhishekha will be shared ( see below in costs).
We will also visit the Sapta Rishi, seven sages temples dedicated to Lord of Mylapore, Chennai. The seven sages all meditated and did personal purification rituals at these temples.
It’s the first time that a Vedic astrology group is visiting many of these temples.
We will do rituals, pujas, abhishekas and prayer ceremonies during this pilgrimage – these costs will be shared where we do a group program. You also need to give Dakshina to the priests who perform the rituals.
