Where to place Tirupati Balaji idol at home?

Lord Venkateshwara is very merciful and has come to this material world to relieve people from the miseries and pangs of material existence. The Vedic scriptures such as the Skanda Purana glorify the Lord and mention the benefits of worshiping the deity of Lord Venkateshwara. Since He is the Supreme Lord, only by His mercy and sweet will can anyone come to the platform of performing loving devotional service. If you want to attract His mercy, you must bring into your home, a beautiful deity of Lord Venkateshwara, and install it on the altar.

Although the standards of deity worship are not as strict as those followed in the temples, there are some things you need to keep in mind. If you have enough space in your home, you must install the deity where there are no unnecessary distractions. Avoid keeping it in your bedroom. However, if there is no other option, you can place it in a corner of your bedroom.

Why is Balaji’s face covered?

The beautiful transcendental form of Lord Venkateshwara Balaji is unique in so many ways. He stands bearing four arms holding a conch shell (Panchajanya) and a disc (Sudarshan Chakra) in His upper hands. While His lower arms are in different mudras to bless His devotees. He is elaborately decorated with several ornaments that look immensely beautiful. But there is something very interesting about His eyes. His forehead bears a white huge mark or Tilak known as Urdhva Pundra that covers most parts of His eyes. The reason behind this is often given that the devotees who come to take the Darshan of Lord Balaji cannot withstand the effulgence coming out of His glorious eyes and therefore the white mark or mask covers His eyes.

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?


Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.

 

Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.

 

  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.

 

 

  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.


  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth. 

 

Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
