If we want to get rid of our difficulties we should do the Venkateswara vratham just once, all our difficulties will vanish. The first story in this vratham was written on Tirupathi Hill itself.
This was written with the grace and order of Lord Venkateswara himself. The remaining four stories were written by great munis Vishwamitra, Bharadwaaja, Vasishtha and Aathri.
Tirumala is a divine place. Not only that we can hear the Vedas, the Puranas and Upanishads too. Even today Three Crores mukothi devathas and Mahamunis roam in Tirumala in invisible forms.

Lord Srinivasa knows our limitations etc all the difficulties we face in Kaliyuga. That is the reason he gave us this very easy way of pleasing him and getting our troubles removed. That Lord will surely bless those who do this vratham, listen to the stories and eat the prasadam.
Their difficulties will be removed. Writing this vratham has been a Mahayagnam. Jagdish did the cover page of this book very nicely. I pray that Lord Srinivasa and Goddess Lakshmi bless them. Similarly in printing this book many of Srinivasas beloved devotees helped me a lot. What can be greater luck then being able to write such a vratha that is the Lords favorite.
I will spend my life in serving the Lord and taking his Tatwa closer to peoples hearts. I thank everyone who helped me in writing this book. There is no difference in Bhakthi, like small Bhakta, big Bhakta etc. Bhakthi is a divine quality. Every ones Bhakthi reaches Lord Srinivasa.

This vratha can be done on any day, doing it in Margashira, Magha, Kartika Months or on Pournami, Panchami, Sapthami, Ekadashi days or on days in which Sravan Nakshatram which is the lords nakshatram comes it gives a superior results. This vratham can be done in the morning or evening.
This vratham has 5 stories in it. Lord Venkateswara told the first story. This vratham can be done in your own house, rental house, the temple or any holy place. If possible invite friends and relatives and do the vratham.
First the place where the vratham is going to be done has to be cleaned properly. It is much better then a normal photo. You need to keep a small idol of Lord Venkateswara or his form on a coin or just use a one-rupee coin. Then arrange the kalasam.
You can also keep photos of other gods which are your favorite deities on the Mandapam. Do prayer for the navagrahas and the ashtah dikpalakas or at least pray to them mentally. Make a small Vinayaka with turmeric powder. Pray to Vigneswara to make the vratham a success. After the vratham puja you need to read the 5 stories of the vratham. If anyone performs this vratham with full devotion and care Bhakthi and Shraddha the lord himself comes to that place in some form and takes the prasadam.
This is a belief. The lord himself told another important fact about the vratham. If any of us have some difficulty and need to perform the vratham but cannot do it that elaborately, due to time constraint or some other situation. We can do this vratham alone too. Keep Tulasi leaves, flowers, and coconut and other fruits in the plate in front of you. Pray to the lord and read all 5 stories in the mind itself. Immediately all your difficulties will go away. After every story one coconut has to be offered as naivaidya, Maha prasadam has to be made of wheat rawa, sugar and ghee just like for Satyanarayan vratham.
A banana has to be put in this prasadam before offering it to the lord. The Lord Venkateswara loves Tulasi leaves a lot. So if you offer Tulasi leaves during the puja you get a lot of results. After the puja if everybody takes the tulasi leaves as prasadam all kinds of diseases will go away and one will be bestowed with ashtaishwarya eight forms of wealth, money, knowledge, kids, courage, crop etc After the vratham break a coconut offer it along with the mahanaivadyam made of rawa and give it to everyone as prasadam you will get a lot of punyam.
As far as possible do this vratha as carefully as possible with a kalasam and all. In case it is not possible we can do it in the second way as told above.
There is one thing we all need to remember. No one knows all our difficulties like the Lord Venkateswara himself. So if we pray to the Lord using this vratham, we will resolve our difficulties and get health, happiness and wealth.
