Last Saturday my brother and I went to Thirupathi. From Thirupathi we walked to Thirumalai, uphill, where Lord Venkateshwara stands in his temple with his charming smile granting boons to all those who visit him. It takes about four to four and a half hours. The Lord is so merciful that he wants to see us, and us to see him, even before we reach the destination. So he stands all along the way, in his various forms, as if to say that he is the path as well as the destination. 

Ganesha, The Lord of all Beginnings.

Machamurthy, The incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu as a fish.

Koormamurthy, The incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu as a tortoise.

Varahamurthy, The boar-faced incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu. 

Narasimhamurthy, The Lion-faced incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu.

Vaamanar, The incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu as a dwarf.

Parasuramar, The incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu as an angry man with full of wrath.

Balaramar, The twin brother Sri Krishna. 

Shri Ramar, The most perfect incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu. Incarnation of all goodness. My favourite. :)

Sri Krishna, The Super Human. The complete form of Lord Maha Vishnu. It is impossible to find a character, in mythology, fiction or in history, who can better him in both spiritual and material achievements. 
Sri Krishna's feet, cleanser of all sins.

Garuda, Vehicle of Lord Maha Vishnu and an eternal enemy of all snakes. 

Lord Hanuman, Ardent devotee of Lord Rama. Incarnation of health. My inspiration and role model. 

This is the first time I am posting photos taken by me in this blog. Sri Krishna's foot and garuda were taken by my brother Manivannan.
