Hanuman served the Lord so faithfully, that even the Lord could not thank
Hanuman enough. Devotees believe that they are indeed blessed if they
catch a glimpse of the Lord on Hanumad Vahana.
Seva is not performed on the sixth day. Instead, Vasantotsavam (spring
festival) is celebrated.
the night, the Lord is mounted on the Gaja Vahana. Gajam (elephant) is
also called the samajam (born from Samaveda). It symbolises wealth (gajamtam
aishwaryam). It also symbolises the Airavatam – the vehicle of Devendra,

is saved from a crocodile by Lord Vishnu.
the Lord is taken in a procession seated on a Gaja Vahana during Brahmotsavam.
