Sevimparo Janulala Cheri Mokkaro

This Keertana is one of the best compositions of Sri Tallapaka Annamayya in which he glorifies Lord Venkateswara of Tirumala. The song is sung in Hindola Ragam which one of the melodious Carnatic Ragas. In the song, Saint Annamayya calls the devotees to worship the Lord which is in fact a fortune for them. The 1st and 2nd stanzas describe the eternal beauty of Lord Venkateswara who is enjoying a swim in the lake like the lily flower and whose body odors like the camphor, is precious like the silver hill. He, who is beautifully bedecked with ornaments and is too handsome with his body fragrant like 'punugu' (civet) perfume is like the fountain-head of all wealth.

He, who wedded the beautiful Alamelu Manga who shines like the golden lotus and sitting with his consorts, is the most valuable treasure for all his devotees.

"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"

These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit.
