The day on Friday (15 January 2021), begins with an interesting and unique ritual, “Kaka Bali” which is observed inside the Srivari temple during the wee hours as per the norms of Vaikhanasa Agama.
Every year on Kanuma Day, this special food offering is being rendered to Ananda Nilaya Vimana Venkateswara Swamy located in the inner prakaram of Tirumala temple.
The archakas mix turmeric and vermilion separately in cooked rice and throw it over Ananda Nilayam as a part of this celestial fete. Meanwhile this ritual is observed at 4:15am between Thomala seva and Koluvu.
TTD EO takes part in this ritual.
