Sri Ananda Venkateshwara
Sri Ananda Venkateshwara, standing at 10 ft in height, is the largest Venkateshwara deity in North America.
SPH JGM HDH Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam himself carved the face of this particular Venkateshwara.
Sri Ananda Venkateshwara is the Hindu God of wealth, devotion and blissful relationships. His celestial abode is Vaikunta, a divine, imperishable realm. He holds Sri Mahalakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of abundance, health and blissful relationships, in his heart.
He is worshipped by millions of devotees every year in India at the Thirumala Thirupathi temple, where he showers seekers with blessings and boons.
He is the embodiment of love and compassion. He's the god of Anahata (heart) chakra.
In his top right hand is the Chakra, a weapon which represents overcoming fear.
In the top left hand is the shank (conch) which is blown during times of war and when there's gain in one's life. It represents overcoming greed.
The lower right hand represents surrender at the feet of existence of Guru.
According to the Narayana Suktam, the universe is the Eternal Being (Narayana), the supreme and the goal. In different Yugas, Lord Narasimha, Lord Sri Rama, Lord Sri Krishna, and Lord Sri Venkateswara are considered Prathyaksha Dhaivams (Deities).
As per the Vishnu Sahasranama phalashruti verse 6, worshipping Bhagavan Venkateshwara can bestow undiminished wealth and unexcelled prosperity in both this world and the other world (i.e., liberation). He is believed to bestow all the Ananta Kalyana Gunas (Divine Auspicious Qualities), and those who worship Him can receive abundance in wealth and all other dimensions of life.
We worship him for blissful relationships, abundance and fulfillment in all aspects of life.
