BALAJI

The lord of the seven Hills, Tirumalai, Balaji is the wealthiest deity of Southern India. There is an interesting story behind the abounding wealth of Tirupati. While marrying his earthly consort Padmavati, Lord Vishnu, in a human form, borrowed a large amount of wealth from Kubera, the treasurer of the Gods. Kubera agreed on condition that the interest on the wealth will be charged till the end of Kaliyug. That is the reason for Balaji standing there with one hand in the benediction mudra while the other in a receiving gesture. Until the interest is paid off, Tirupati Balaji will continue to receive untold wealth from faithful devotees.
