KANCIPURNA'S VISIT TO TIRUPATI
Meanwhile, KahcTpurna was praying to Lord Varadaraja while fanning Him, "My Lord, what are You trying to do to me? My only desire is to pass my life peacefully in Your service and the service of Your devotees, but now You are trying to make me into a famous acarya. Even Your pure devotee, Ramanuja, now bows down before me. I do not want to become an object of worship, so please give me permission to leave KahcT and go to Tirupati, where I can worship You in the form of Balaji." Lord Varadaraja gave His permission, and so KahcTpurna went to Tirupati. He stayed there for six months, fully absorbed in the service of Sri Balaji, the form of Lord Visnu who resides in the temple there.
