The very name of Lord Hari will give you immense pleasure. Is it not enough to fulfill your taste? To break all the hassles of this life and to relieve you from thousands of miseries, the very name of Hari is enough. Rendering the praise of Lord VenkaTEshwara is enough to live like a "kalpabujam" which means kalpataru and to lead life with a pleasant smile throughout.
