TTD Tirumala Srivari Monthly Garuda Seva Dates 2015. Significance or Importance of Garuda Vahana Seva

Tirumala Temple, the abode of Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy. The Lord gives darshan to the pilgrims by taking procession on various Vahanams along four temple streets during special occasions. Among them Garuda Vahanam Seva is the most significant vahana(vehical) seva. 

Garuda Vahana Seva will be conducted in the evening of the Fifth Day of annual Srivari Brahmotsavams during Navaratri Brahmotsavams in every year. Apart from it, TTD will conduct Garuda Vahana Seva on the day of Pournami(Full Moon Day) in every month since 2006. 

SrivariCollections presents you the Garuda Vahana Seva procession Dates for the calendar year 2015. The details are as follows...
Significance of Garuda Vahana Seva in Tirumala Temple: 
According to the ancient Hindu texts, Garuda, the king of birds, is a replica of the Vedas (vedatma vihamgeswara), while Lord Vishnu is the God of Vedas. Therefore, the Lord sees Himself in Garuda. In the Vaishnava Puranas, Garuda is also called periyatiruvadi, meaning the first devotee. Therefore, the Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy selected "Garuda" as His vehicle.

Garuda Vahana is the greatest of all the Vahanas in Tirumala Temple. A large number of pilgrims visit the temple for darshan of Lord Venkateswara on Garuda Vahanam on this day.
