Indian Temple WebCasting its Prime Festival

Come August end and September, it marks the beginning of a cycle of yearly festivals in India each of which have a significance of their own and have millions of followers across the country. One such event that has over the years transformed itself into a festival is the annual Brahmotsava festival at the world famous Venkateshwara temple at Tirupathi in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Extending over a period of nine days, this festival is celebrated by millions across the world who congregate at this sacred venue. However these people form just a fraction of the people who are actually celebrating the festival worldwide. As a part of its efforts to reach out to these people, the TTD ( Tirupathi Tirumala Devasthanams) Trust which manages the affairs of the temple plans to webcast the live proceedings of the Brahmotsava festival over the 9 days across the net. This webcast would be viewable real time from any part of the world where people could hook up to the World Wide Web.

The Brahmotsava festival starts from September 25th.

Digitalization of temples in India have brought the Gods a lot closer to the large Indian diaspora across the world.
