Lord Venkatesa - Fine batik painting

$39.00

In this Batik painting popular god Venkateswara, who is also known as Srinivasa, Balaji and Venkatachalapati is given a prolific treatment with variegated colours being used in abundance. He is a form of the Hindu god Vishnu. Venkateswara is a god who destroys the sins of the people. According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu, out of his love towards his devotees, incarnated as Venkateswara and appeared for the salvation and upliftment of humanity in this Kali Yuga age. He is considered the supreme form of Vishnu in this age. The Venkateswara swami temple is also called Kaliyuga Vaikuntam.


There is a belief that Lord Kubera gave money to the Lord Venkateshwara for his marriage with Padmavati. Keeping this in mind, the devotees visiting Tirupati donate money, gold in Venkateshwara's Hundi ("Donation pot"), so that he can repay Lord Kubera.


According to Sthala Purana, once some sages headed by Kasyapa performed a sacrifice on the banks of the Ganges. Then Narada visited them and asked the reason for the sacrifice. The sages were confused as they were not aware of the cause of the sacrifice. Finally, they approached Sage Bhrigu, who was believed to have an extra eye in the sole of his foot. Sage Bhrigu visited Satyaloka (the abode of Lord Brahma), Kailasa (the abode of Lord Shiva) and Vaikunta (the abode of Lord Vishnu).


However none of the Gods paid any attention to Bhrigu. At Vaikunta, the sage was so infuriated that he kicked the Lord on Vishnu’s chest, the place where Mahalakshmi resides. Lord Vishnu pulled out Bhrigu’s extra eye that was his egotism. The sage finally realized his mistake and apologized to Vishnu. Thereupon, the sage concluded that Lord Vishnu was the most supreme of the Trimurti and told the rishis the same.


Meanwhile, an infuriated Mahalakshmi left Vaikuntha and started residing in Karavirapur now known as Kolhapur.


Lord Vishnu also left Vaikunta and came down to Earth. He took abode in an ant-hill under a tamarind tree. Brahma and Maheshwara decided to assume the forms of a cow and its calf to serve Lord Vishnu. And thus Lord Vishnu came to be known as Lord Venkatesa.
