Lord Venkateswara devours pilgrims on Hanumantha Vahanam

On the morning of the sixth day, Malayappa Swamy is taken in a procession around the town of Tirumala in a vehicle of Hanuman or the Hanumantha Vahanam.

With regard to character, strength and ability, Hanuman was far superior to even humans. His surrender to the divine cause and his devotion to Lord Rama was unique, exemplary and unconditional. Even today devotees say that wherever the name of Lord Rama is chanted or mentioned, this sacred being would be present there listening to the chanting of his name and absorbed in his thoughts.

Lord Hanuman symbolically stands for pure devotion, complete surrender and absence of ego. His character tells us what we can do in our lives by becoming pure, humble and surrender outselves to the almighty (saranagati).
