Height: 3.5 ft
Material: We have used a single block of Black stone to create this immensely beautiful and intricate piece of work.
His aura, grace, and holiness draw people from all tracks of life and beyond the world. Notwithstanding the long wait that sometimes extends beyond a day, believers celebrate their appearance in the Lord’s residence and chant his name with complete devotion.
The long and tiring wait fades away the moment devotees get to see an impression of the pious idol stopping gloriously in the garbha griha (sanctum sanctorum). The Darshan may last not more than a few moments but believers hail the opportunity given to them and feel completely blessed to be fortunate enough to behold his aura.
Such is his stature as the most influential Lord who grants reliable wishes to his followers.
It is assumed that he is one of the avatars of Lord Vishnu in the Kaliyuga to release humanity of all its despair. Moreover, the Lord himself manifested into a stone on being confronted by his wife Goddess Lakshmi after she learns of his ceremony to Padmavathi.
The two prints on his chest describe the places possessed by Lakshmi and Padmavathi in his body. Since the Lord himself converted into a stone, the idol is considered to be remarkably charismatic.
Often committed to as the richest god, Srinivasa or Balaji, blesses his devotees with the desires they ask for.
Devotees often bestow money and jewelry as a token of appreciation and many even tonsure their heads to donate their hair. Interestingly, according to a story, followers shower the Lord with wealth to help him reimburse the loan he had obtained from Kubera, the Treasurer of Wealth through the time of his divine wedding to Padmavathi.
On a religious note, the contributions to the Lord describe the unselfishness of his followers who wholeheartedly bestow their wealth at his feet. Because in the end, worldly attractions need to be conquered to achieve forgiveness that is obtained only when people abdicate to the spiritual force.
This sculpture is exquisitely carved in a single piece of black stone. The intricate work done on it shows the immense commitment of the artisan towards creating this special piece. Minute carvings are done on the whole figure keeping in mind the proper adornments.
This statue is adorned with flowers as well as a conch shell, discus, and a large club. The conch represents “Om”, the first sound of creation and the beginning of matter since sound and matter are considered synonymous. The discus is thought to represent the sun.
The discus is a vestige of his solar origins. Vishnu’s weapon, the club or Gada, represents the elemental force from which all physical and mental powers derive. Narayan Statue has a large necklace that hangs down to his knees. He has a slight smile on his face.
Temple pictures of Balaji represent him either sitting, often in the company of his friends Lakshmi (also called Shri) and Bhumidevi (Earth), or resting on the coils of the serpent Shesha—asleep on the cosmic ocean during the time between the periodic destruction and re-manifestation of the world.
