Sri Godha (Andal) Kalyana
Jan 22 @ 9am

Sri Godhai Devi Story

Vishnuchitta was a devout Brahmin who lived in Villiputtur, a town near Madurai. He worshipped Lord Ranganatha ( Sri Venkateshwara) everyday with great reverence and as part of his daily duties brought flowers for the Lord's puja in the local Temple.

One morning, while picking flowers from his garden, he discovered a baby girl under a Tulasi plant.  Vishnuchitta felt this child was given to him by God's grace and decided to raise the child as his own. The child was named Godhai which means a beautiful garland in Tamil.

Vishnuchitta raised Godhai with love and instilled in her all his devotion and good values. She grew in her father's care and developed a love of poetry and a greater love for Lord Ranganatha.



Godha KalyanaEven as a child, Andal made up her mind to marry the Lord Ranganath. Unknown to her father, she adorned herself daily with the flower garland meant for the Lord in the Temple and would admire herself as if she were the Lord's bride. One day Vishnuchitta saw Andal's  playful game and was deeply saddened at the desecration of the Lord's puja garland.  That night, the Lord came to Vishnuchitta in his dreams and told him that He preferred to have flower garlands only after Godhai wears them.

Andal finally attained the Lord by observing the Pavai Vrat early in the mornings.  Godhai is also known as Sri Andal, Goda Devi and Bhoo Devi.

As a testament to their divine love, to this day, it is believed that girls who observe the same vrat will be blessed by the Lord with a good husband

All are cordially invited to the Kalyana of Godha Devi & Lord Venkateswara this Saturday.

Wear your best wedding attire to this divine celebration.

Repeat daily and often

on the Almighty Lord!

Sri Swamiji Says
Share the Divine Knowlegde


An action by itself can neither be good nor bad. Its goodness or badness lies in its source i.e., the thought. Therefore, if we want out actions to be noble and good, we must entertain and cultivate noble and good thoughts.


If you are in harmony within yourself, the entire outside world will also be in harmony. If you see conflicts outside, it is your inner conflict, which on projection, sees conflicts outside.


Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness towards happy; mercy and compassion towards the unhappy; delight towards the virtuous and indifference towards the wicked.


Remember God and worship Him when you are happy.  Forget yourself when you are in sorrows.  Peace comes to you of its own accord.  Energy and enthusiasm (to act), and courage of the mind to move forward, can be acquired from serenity.
