What is in the Sami tree that leads one to success? Did Venkateswara Swami also pray to Sami tree?Yes, it is said in VenkatachalaIthihasamala, VenkatachalaMa:ha:tmyam (the history of Venkateswara Swami) and Varaha Puranam that He prayed to the Sami tree prior to marrying Padmavati Devi. Pandavas also prayed to Sami tree prior to the war with Kouravas.
Let’s see how – when we notice elderly leave their bodies or many others leaving us in truly miserable ways, we all can feel that this body is not something that is permanent. What is permanent then? We generally want to be associated with something that is permanent than with something that is temporary. That is exactly what the divine mother will support us with!
She takes away the weaknesses, then the mind begins to have clarity on the goal and journey of the life. Sri Venkateswara Swami shows that it is with the support of the divine mother that He carries out His task of protecting us all in a much more pleasant manner. Otherwise, we all would be children of a house where father is being too strict to demand good behaviour from us. The mediator and the embodiment of love, the divine mother works with the ignorance of the child and the supremacy of the God and ease the gap between us and God.
God also is extremely thankful, happy for the company of the divine mother.That is why, He enjoys journey after offering His gratitude to the mother Lakshmi who is in the form of Sami tree.
