"Good to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Little away from the city, but worth it.
Quite famous.
Worth the time.
Can invest ample time in the temple. Lots of Shiva Murtis from the various avtaars of Lord Shiva.
Considered pious space.

Chanting of Balaji Vedas gives you spiritual power and unconditional love towards world. Whenever we visit the temple it gives pleasure of unwilling faithfulness towards God.

"The magical spiritual of 108 pradakshinam"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 4, 2015
This Lord Balaji temple located in Chilkur an hours drive from Hyderabad, is run by a family trust from many generations. The method is as follows, first do the pradakshina of 9 rounds and pray for a wish that is practical and achievable but unattainable from normal human methods. You are trying to invoke divine power to fill you with strength such that you stretch a lot more than you usually can, to achieve what you thought was way beyond you. It is believed (and my own experience) if you stretch yourself that much more, you will attain what you thought was unattainable. Once you achieve it, come back to the temple and do a pradakshina of 108 rounds around the temple. Believe me, you will find the strength to walk for 4-5 hours. The head priest does entertain you with slokas (it's amazing to listen to the slokas), some jokes about what people do when walking, etc also some people do sing devotional songs and also engage the pradakshina walkers to recite slokas. It's all an amazing experience. You feel tired but not tired enough, after the walk you feel you have not had enough of it, so different when you think of having your morning walks and then decide to cuddle back under the quilt. Overall a fantastic experience.

Top-Tips: Don't wish for money, becoming rich, buying car house or such. Pray specifics like getting some strength to contribute or gaining control over some health issue (not pray for cure-some diseases are non-curable). Keep it simple and you have to put your effort, God will nopt work for you, you have to work for yourself. But this prayer will help you gain strength and interest to complete those tasks, that's God's blessing.
