Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

3) Vibhava Avatara - Incarnation

God plays an active part in the maintenance of the world order by periodically incarnating. These incarnation are 2 types

Primary - a manifestation that is not material but a spiritual consisting of pure consciousness, bliss and existence (absolute) e.g Lord Krishna

Secondary - these are elevated souls who are chosen to act as vessels for the Divine activity, e.g Buddha etc

4) Arca Avatara - Iconic Descent

When an inanimate object like statue (icon) is constructed and consecrated correctly according to the dictates of the agamas, then God through the omnipotence and omnipresences manifests in the icons. The omnipresent Lord, by a tiny portion of His Spiritual Energy (sakti) particularises His presence in a sanctified icon for receiving devotion and worship.

In Sri Vaisnava tradition Arca avatara is given utmost importance and emphasis (as this form is easily accessible) along with temple rituals and festivals.

5) Antaryamin - Indweller

God dwells in the soul (jiva) as the Oversoul. He is the witness of all actions of the jivas. The jivas alone act (through free will) and reap the fruits of its actions in the form of sorrow (dukha) and happiness (sukha). As the Indweler, The Lord pervades all the creation within and without (Vasudeva)
