Sent to you from Tirupati, provided to the GBCs attending a GBC meeting at ISKCON Tirupati by the Temple President Revati Raman Prabhu -

Some pastimes of Lord Balaji and His devotees.

SRI VENKATESWARA KALYANAM:

On the banks of the Ganges, the rishis headed by Kasyapa began to perform a sacrifice. Sage Narada visited them and asked them why they were performing the sacrifice and who would be pleased by it and to whom the yagna phala to be offered. Some of rishis said it is for Lord Vishnu, some said it is for Lord Shiva and some said it is for Lord Brahma, not being able to answer the question, the rishis approached Sage Bhrigu. To reach a solution after a direct ascertainment of reality, Sage Bhrigu first went to Satyaloka, the abode of Lord Brahma.
