TTD Chairman Sri YV Subba Reddy along with TTD EO Sri Anil Kumar Singhal and others released the photo of “Gomata and its significance” donated by TTD Trust board member Sri Siva Kumar on Saturday. The photo release took place at Annamaiah Bhavan in Tirumala. Sri Siva Kumar has come forward with a novel idea of protecting one lakh cows at one place in the state of Telengana. He has brought out the noble concept and theme of his generous idea in the form of a Cheriyal Paint drawn by renowned artist Sri Vaikuntham. The painting portrayed the most important episode of the legend, Venkatachala Mahatyam where in Lord Maha Vishnu takes form as Srinivasa and leaves Vaikuntha in search of His love Maha Lakshmi and takes abode underneath an anthill while Lord Siva assuming the form of holy cow and Lord Brahma as calf feed Srinivasa. The angered cowherd is also seen in the photo with an axe. Source: http://news.tirumala.org/gomata-painting-released
