Sanatana Dharmika Sadas, a three-day spiritual conference from 3 to 5 February, being hosted by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) in Tirumala under the aegis of the Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad kicked off on Saturday, 3 February.

The conference began at the Astana Mandapam in Tirumala with the participation of 25 peethadipathis (pontiffs) on the first day, who were received by TTD chairman B Karunakara Reddy.

“The Pontiffs hailing from various mutts (religious organisations) across the country provided their valuable suggestions to TTD for taking forward the Hindu Sanatana Dharma in a more effective way through a series of Dharmic programmes,” said the temple body in a press release.

Replicas of Srivari Vajra Kireetam (deity’s diamond crown), Om Karam in electrical decor, floral structures of Tirunamam – Shanku – Chakra, dioramas of Dasavatara, horses, elephants, cow and calf, replica of ananda nilaya and other embellishments have glorified the ambience of the sadas (summit).

The summit began with the lighting of a lamp by Pedda Jeeyar Swamy, along with Chinna Jeeyar Swamy of Tirumala and others, followed by Veda Swasti.
