HDPP launched a unique program of performing the celestial wedding of the replicas of
processional deities in all the rural and urban areas across the states of Andhra Pradesh and
Telangana and also the country. This program has gained immense popularity as the devotees are
provided with an opportunity to witness the celestial wedding of the Lord at their home towns.
Emboldened by the response, TTD launched an exclusive Kalyanotsavam project to perform these celestial
weddings across the country and abroad.
To enlighten the masses, especially the youth, about our ancient traditions and
values that are enshrined in the temples - the epicentres of our rich heritage and culture,
HDPP designed a unique programme –Managudi, a mass temple festival with public participation
across thousands of temples in the State. It is performed twice a year in the auspicious months
of “Shravana” and “Kartheeka” with an aim to bring people back to the temples by highlighting the
culture of the temples.
Under this programme the students of Class X, Inter I and II years are trained
on various moral subjects for a week during their summer vacation.
This programme aims at inculcating moral values to the students and make them responsible
future citizens of the country.
Nada Neerajanam is a unique platform in which an open air theatre is set
up near the Srivari temple at Tirumala to showcase the great Indian heritage,
especially its bhakti tradition in the form of dance and music.
It is a cultural phenomenon and a platform that has served
as a host to many classical music and dance programmes. A 90-minute programme is being
staged every day without a break since August 15, 2009 featuring leading Indian artistes.
This platform has also created a record of sorts in the world. Budding artists and also
veterans are given an opportunity to serve Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy by presenting a performance
(music or dance) at the platform. Nada Neeranjanam shows are also aired live by Sri Venkateswara
Bhakti Channel (SVBC) regularly.
