Sri Venkateswara Annamacharya Society of America's Sankeerthana Kalyanothsavam was conducted in a fittingly grand manner on 29 April at Sanatan Dharma Temple – starting with the Gurudeva Prarthana on Annamacharya, Suprabhatham to Srivaru, recital of couple of Sankeerthana’s of Annamacharya and followed it with traditional procession ‘Urigempu’ of Sri Venkateswara and Annamacharya around the temple with the musicians rendering the music in tandem to the chants of “Govinda! Govinda!”. This was followed by the performance of Kalyanothsavam with steps (Ghattams) Snathakam, Rakhsa Bandhanam, Kanya Daanam, Jeelakara Bellam, Mangala Suthra Dharanam and Talambralu etc. As the priests conducted and explained the religious significance of each step of the Kalyanam, Satya Duvvuri presented the matching Annamacharya composition explaining the meaning and significance and the musicians laced it with their melodious renderings. Such a punctuation of ceremony with music enthralled one and all, thus creating a harmony that will benefit the entire world with peace and everlasting happiness. The appeal was magical to all the devotees who participated in the Sannkeerthana Kalyanothsavam. Their thoughts were uplifted to a completely transformed level of consciousness.
