Sri Srinivasa Padmavathi Kalyanam

The wedding ceremony and preparations for the celestial wedding of Lord Venkateswara and Goddess Padmavathi have been described in detail in "Sri Venkatachala Mahathyam", derived from Varaha Puranam.
The 11th chapter in the 3rd volume of "Sri Venkatachala Mahathyam" contains 446 slokas. These slokas invoke the divinity from within, they are extremely beautiful and awe-inspiring. The result of reciting all these slokas is equal to the results of one crore "Kanyadaanam" and "Bhudaanam". People who are keen to get married will find suitable partners on completing this chapter.
I shall post all the slokas with meanings very shortly, marking an auspicious beginning to 2010. Wishing all a very happy and prosperous New Year!
