    Why hair is donated to Tirupathi Balaji

    tirupathi_288Tirupathi Balaji is revered by millions of Hindus as they believe that Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi are present in this temple. There are many rituals followed at Balaji's temple; however, that of donating hair is the most unusual and popular.

    There are many reasons for this. The most prominent one is that many believe by shaving off their hair the devotee gets rid of his arrogance and sins that he has committed knowingly or unknowingly, and asks for Lord's forgiveness. He then prays to Balaji without any ulterior motives guiding him thus increasing his devotion to the Lord.

    Earlier, people would shave their head in their homes. However, nowadays devotees shave their heads at a place near the temple called Kalyan Katta. After this the devotees take a bath and then goes to the temple to pray.
