    This reminds my younger sister. I am used to be chided in similar situations.
    @Madhurima21 stated in her response to me that wish & so I felt to say
    "dhadhasthu".
    Elders say God would look for right time for you to be present at His sanctum and then only visit can happen. So we continue with our prayer to get that wish fructifies.
    Regards.

    absolutely agree. Infact while returning from Tirumala, it is written on the exit gates and infact all thru the bus route also .. "Punah darsana Praptirastu". (blessings for another darsanam)

    Just received this video which I uploaded in UT. Grand feast for Perumal being served on Banana leaves - leaves one in winder!
    The song in praise of Lord is popular one and forms part of daily prayer. Watch the concluding part where the wonder is.

    Dear @Thyagarajan Sir,

    Thirupathi Malai Vasa is already famous internationally. Pittsburgh Temple is modeled after Thirumala-Thirupathi Sannadhi here in the US and many Americans from all over the US visit this Temple regularly. The CA students doing articleship in a CA firm where I did my articles had a strong belief that praying to the Lord that we would walk up the hill to have dharshan has a profound impact in finishing the exam with flying colors. Even Christian students followed this practice. I definitely walked up the hill both after completing my intermediate and final exam. Laddu used to be so big those days and they kept reducing the size over a period of time. The small laddu that was given as prasadam for free in the Sannadhi also we never used to miss besides buying the laddu in the office for all the students. Even one student passed the exam, all the students walked up the hill to have dharshan. We used to enjoy going up the hill so much. Those days, we used to stand in the line for hours before having a dharshan.

    Once, when I was working for an electronics company, they were regular in selling television sets to the Thirumala Thirupathi Devasthanam and hence had a good relationship with the Executive Officer. Once I visited Thirumala Thirupathi Devasthanam with a letter issued to the Executive Officer. When I met him at the foothill, he asked me to meet him in front of the Temple at a specific time and when I showed up, he took me for Dharshan without waiting in the line and allowed me to have dharshan for over 15 minutes. Besides, he also showed me the rooms that stored jeweleries and Perumal's daily outfits and when I walked into that room, I was overwhelmed with such a joy. That was one of the best experience of visiting Thirupathi Devasthanam. He also showed me other important rooms in the Devasthanam.

    ohh you had darshan for 15 minutes? that would have been mesmerizing. Once, when I and my brother were just at the entry of the God and about to get that 1 second of darshanam, they closed the curtains. And we waited right in front of the curtains for about 5-6 minutes. And then they opened the curtains and pushed us away. you know how fast that can happen... we were shoved. And then one of the guards sort of realised what they did and called me and my brother back. We stood like for a full 30 seconds and got a great darshanam. You can imagine the euphoria, the exhilarated feeling, and all those rush of emotions. And me, I get teary eyed very easily.


    So yet again ... edu kondala vaada venkata ramana, apadbhandava, anadha rakshaka, rakshinchu tandri, nuvve dikku nuvve dikuu, nuvve dikku.
