Venkataachalam is a hill-top-prominent feature in the spiritual kingdom of Lord Venkateswara by virtue of his dwelling and settlement there. It is an achalam (non-moving mount) famed after his name. It has thus gained a legendary status as Venkataachalam.
This book, dealing with the celebrity, sublimity and divinity of the sacred hill, is originally written in Telugu as "Venkatachala Mahatmyam" and it comprehends the whole journey of Srinivaasa from Vaikuntham to Venkataadri. The scriptural basis for the elaborate stories therein is owned by Varaahapuranam and Bhavishyottara puranam.
The ancient story-teller, Soota narrates first the virtue of Venkataachalam, and then in order, the descending of Lord Vishnu to Kreedadri, his play activities in great Pushkarini, Padmasarovaram and other thirthas, his ant-hill residency, his golden marriage with Padmavati, his blessings showered on the king Tondaman, the building of divine temple and the order of holy celebrations including Brahmostavam.
The Telugu prose textual version of Sri Paravastu Venkata Ramanuja Swamy is rendered into simple-smooth-streaming English language by Sri Chintagunta Subba Rao, a learned writer.
I feel happy to prelude this modest but august work to the devotees of Sri Swamivaru.
