Hello,

Thulabharam means a type of prayer where one actually donates / offers the weight equavivalent of the devotee in material goods.Several types of thulabharam are done, specific to what exactly the reason could be. Materials which are offered in Thulabharam are Raw Rice, Jaggery, Sugar Candy (Kalkandu), Coconut, Yam, Banana's, coins etc.

For children thulabaram is done with sugar candy, jaggery and money (coins) this is done for ensuring good health and longevity.

Middle age people give thulabaram of Yam(Vegetable called Karnaikallangu in tamil, kanda in telugu, suran in hindi) this is for ensuring good health and success.

For specific marriage people offer sweet banana's (yellow or green) and also jaggery. This would ensure that the marriage life is sweet and full of happiness.

The most important temples which have this facility are Guruvayur temple, tirupathi used to have (iam not sure now).I am cut pasting small write up on Guruvayur temple please read this link

http://www.outlooktraveller.com/des…

I also know that Ajaneyar temple in Nanganallur, Madras also has this facility.

Now that i have given options it is upto you to decide what would be the material goods you want to offer at the temple. Please note: It is not what you pray and offer it is only the amount of bhakthi and faith which you have in god that matters.

I hope i have answered your query.

Best wishes.

Hi,

You can offer what you want to offer or what you can afford at the temple . Both Guruvayoor andTirupathi has the facility and accept Thulabharams. Under the practice which is in vogue, pilgrims could donate various items like sugar, rice, jaggery, sugar candy, small coins etc., equivalent to his/her weight or that of the child for whose sake the vow was taken. You can also offer fruits like Kadali pazham, mangoes, Coconuts etc The offerings are used in the temples to make prasadams and the extra are sold anmd the money go into the temple coffers.

At Tiruppathi , Under the system in practice, devotees intending to perform Thulabharam have to carry the item into the temple through the queue-complex. Replacing the laborious and cumbersome practice, the TTD has given permission to the local branch of the Indian Bank to open at the Maha Dwaram a special counter, which would collect from the devotees concerned, the cash equivalent to the item they want to donate and would give them a receipt. The amount would reach the TTD coffers and the devotee's vow fulfilled.

But in Guruvayoor, the old method of making the person for whom is the offerinmg is made is made to sit on one side of the scale and the offerings are put on the other, till the needle stands in the middle. Then it is said that the thulabharam is complete.

The materials alsoare available at the temple premises itself. If you want to know anything more about this please contact the Guruvayoor Devaswom or Tirupathi Thirumala devasthanam authorities. All the best

Hello,

An interesting write up from the following site is given hereunder:

http://www.outlooktraveller.com/des…

Thulabharam is offered IN GURUVAYOOR TEMPLE just inside the east gate and to the left. Many devotees offer thulabharam or their own weight in a wide range of items useful to the temple. The temple accepts anything from water to precious gems, but devotees usually give bananas, ghee, sugar, jaggery, paddy, coconuts, or even coir rope, to keep a promise made by them or on their behalf. Thulabharam can be done after 5 am, whenever the sanctum is open. The temple keeps 50 common items on hand that you can just pay the rate for (plus a fee of Rs 5), but if you have something unusual in mind you may bring it yourself.

The Thulabharam offering is mostly related with an individual's capacity to repay the Almighty. I do not know the answer to your specific question - in your case as it's connected with marriage purpose, you may offer any of the related items for marriage. Any offering to the Lord with bhakthi and shraddha as done by Rukmini amma to Lord Krishna by offering Thulasi patram is a good example.

Courtesy of the HINDU TIRUPATI: It is a hassle-free system now for those who want to offer `Thulabharam' at the Lord Venkateswara temple. Under the practice which is in vogue, pilgrims could donate various items like sugar, rice, jaggery, sugar candy, small coins etc., equivalent to his/her weight or that of the child for whose sake the vow was taken. Under the system in practice, devotees intending to perform Thulabharam have to carry the item into the temple through the queue-complex. Replacing the laborious and cumbersome practice, the TTD has given permission to the local branch of the Indian Bank to open at the Maha Dwaram a special counter, which would collect from the devotees concerned, the cash equivalent to the item they want to donate and would give them a receipt. The amount would reach the TTD coffers and the devotee's vow fulfilled.

Anonymous,

Tulabharam

Tulabharam is offering to the Lord, one's weight in coins or other items such as sugar candy. Tulabharam is generally performed for children.

Pilgrims can weigh their offerings in the temple complex. The coins can be deposited in the temple hundi and other items can be handed over to the temple authorities present. (http://www.tirumala.org/faci_vows.h…)

You can also see this link

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/…

Pilgrims with offerings in cash or kind fulfil their vow exclusively on a weighing machine called ‘tulabharam’ at the entrance of the temple. Apart from coins, silver biscuits, and currency notes, pilgrims offer camphor, sugar, jaggery, bananas and rice equivalent to their weight.

The devotees take such a vow in difficult times like problems during delivery of a baby or when someone suffers from a serious ailment or some other serious problems in life.

Tulabharam can be offered with bananas, sugar, jaggery, coconuts and coins in Guruvayur Temple.

Hai ,

As you all know Thulabaram is what we know from Lord Krishna.Rukmani and Sathyabama wanted to show their love towards lord and utimately Lord falls to Ultimate love and not for the rich articles the same way it is heart and faith that matters and not the articles.

You can offer anything as you wish as an article if you have prayed to God that you will offer. Otherwise to get married you can tell some slokam and give something to the needy or the poor married people. The God will be happy .

These are simple ways to please God .

I will also pray for you to get married .

Thulabharam is a peculiar type of offering to God. The devotee sits in one side of a Balance and the other side of the Balance is filled with the item he or she has avowed to give as Thulabharam. The item has to be filled till the centre point of the Balance becomes straight. That is, the weight of the item will be equal to the weight of the devotee. The items offered may be any according to the vow. Raw Rice, paddy, areca-nut,Jaggery, Coconut, Coconut Oil, Sandal Wood, Tender coconut,cereals, vegetables, flower, fabrics, copper,coins of any metal esp gold, silver, jewellery,gems like diamonds,ruby ,Sugar, sugar candy, butter, money, silks,fruits esp bananas,currency notes and many other or any items hold the honour of becoming Thulabharam material. So you can choose any as part of your choice. Thirupathi and Guruvayoor temples are famous for this.

Thulabharam is an important ritual at the Sri Krishna Temple in Guruvayur, Kerala. In the ritual, the devotee sits on the one side of a weighing balance. The other side of the weighing balance is filled with materials he/she wishes to offer. The devotee offers materials of his/her weight or more. Normally people offer sugar, jaggery, sacred leaves , fruits, banana, etc. also some times valuable metals and things.Thulabharam is also performed at Tirupati and several other temples in South India.

Ion other words Thulabharam is an important offering in many temples is the THULABHARAM (weighing using a common balance). In this offering, there will be a large common balance. The devotee sits on one pan while his weight is balanced in the other pan with any item of his choice, like plantain, Sarkara (molasses), sugar etc. The weighed item is then offered to the deity.

Thulabharam is an offering to god. It depends on our wish, eg. one can thulabharam with anything like banana, sugar, coconut, ghee, jaggery, gold, rice, sugarcane etc. It is not the article what matters but pure bhakti, is what is needed for God. It all depends on one's ability to do, in terms of money. There is even a story that tells us that even a thulasi leaf can balance LORD KRISHNA's whole weight when offered with full devotion. An agriculturist offers whatever has been produced in his land. But the underlying factor has to be the BHAKTI.

hAI Devotees offer rice, fruits, jaggery, sugar crystals, money equal to their weight, a commitment is called Thulabaram. For marriage you can offer bananas in thulabaram. In Tamil we say

VAZHAIYADI VAZHAIYAHA

Which means marriage life should be like a banana tree which give birth to young ones near it once it grows and each and every part of it is useful to others. You offer bananas to god and a happy married life.

The practice of thulabaram is popular at the Guruvayoor temple, in which one weighed oneself on an iron scale against fruits or any commodity of one's choice which is later given to the god.

The same place is also the site for several weddings and 'annaprasanam' the first feeding ceremony of a child.

GURUVAYUR is considered to be the Bhooloka Vaikunda (the heaven on earth). The idol of Sri Guruvayurappan was once worshipped by Sri. Mahavishnu in Vaikunda, who handed it over to Brahma. From Brahma it passed through the sacred hands of Sutapas, Kashyapa and Vasudeva and finally to Lord Krishna himself.

Lord Krishna had installed and worshipped this idol at Dwaraka and on his instructions it was installed by Brihaspathi (Deva Guru) and Vayu (the God of Air) at Guruvayur to enable his worshippers in this KALI YUGA to attain salvation. Guruvayur is also the place where Lord Shiva worshipped Mahavishnu.

To help you perform poojas there are two packages. If you are in UK, USA, Canada, Australia... Pooja with accommodation US$ 30 Pooja without accommodation US$ 15

Specialities. Virgins awaiting marriage which is delayed for some reason or other, those who not have children even after years of marriage, visit the temple, clean the Sannidhi of the Goddess with ghee, draw rangoli and perform archanas. Sooner they are blessed with the boon of a child, they place cradles in the temple.

Women seeking a child, consume the ghee placed at the feet of the Goddess with the mantras. They do this fasting for 48 days. Even if the husband could not follow this, the wife must follow without fail for 48 days. There are no other diet restrictions during the fasting period. Pregnancy is ensured, if the fasting is followed in all faith.

For safe delivery, castor oil is placed at the feet of the Goddess with mantras pertaining to the prayer. The castor oil thus given in the temple is applied on the stomach when the labour pain occurs. The delivery becomes very safe and without any after effects which occurs in some cases. Even for any abnormal or false pain occurring during pregnancy, the oil is applied on the stomach.

tulabaram is given mostly in guruvaur temple. but nowadays it is given in other temple also. actually as per weight you can give anything from sugar to diamand. it depends on your ability to spend. actually you have to sit in oneside of the tarasu and equal weight of article whichever you want to give you should keep.what i feel is it is faith in god and the amount of prayer you do matters than doing the tulabaram. by doing that you may get more satisfaction and confidence then that is worth doing. wish you all the best.
