Celebrations - Second Day
the second day, the Lord is taken around the streets of the temple on
the Chinna Seshavahana in the morning.
the night, the deities are taken to the Uyala Mandapam for the Unjal Seva.
They are then taken around the streets of Tirumala on the Hamsavahana.
or swan means ‘pure’. Hamsa is believed to have a high intellectual
capability, and can distinguish the good from the bad. In addition, Hamsa
is visually appearing. It is for these reasons that Lord Brahma uses Hamsa
not only as his vehicle, but also to chant the Vedas (the Vedas are believed
to have emanated from the soul of Vishnu).
