The Purpose of KalyanaKatta’s Tirumala Hair Offering

The first devotee to sacrifice her hair to God was Neela Devi. This hill is called Neeladri in her honor by Lord Srinivasa. A little portion of Lord Srinivasa’s scalp became bald after being struck on the head by a shepherd. Neeladevi, a Gandharva princess, observed that there hasn’t been any hair growth there. She thought a face this beautiful shouldn’t have any defects. She takes off a piece of her hair right away and utilizes her expertise to place it on his head.

Because hair is regarded as the most attractive feature of women, Lord Srinivasa respects her sacrifice and claims that all the hair offered to him by worshipers at Tirumala or Tirupati belongs to Neeladevi. Letting rid of our ego is symbolized by giving our hair to God. Her name is also where the phrase “Talaneelalu” comes from.
