Thulabharam at Tirumala

Thulabharam at Tirumala

Weighing place (Thulabharam)

Thulabharam / The balance is seen near the Tirumalaraya mandapam. In sanksrit the balance is called “Tula”. In olden days the kings used to perform “Tulapurushadanam”. The devotees pay money as they wished to offer when their diseases are cured, and are blessed with children. The money equivalent to their weight or to their children’s weight is weighed and submitted to swami. If needs be, the TTD will provide coins. The secret of Thulabhara is not mere submission of the coins. At the time of entry into the temple every devotee will have to judge for himself. The main purpose of temple entry is to maintain equanimity of mind. “Equanimity of mind is the Sun and Substance of all Vedas”, said Annamayya ‘Samabuddhe yandariki sarva vedasaramu’.
