What It Means to Give Hair to Tirumala at KalyanaKatta:

Neela Devi was the first religious person to give God her hair. Lord Srinivasa gave this hill its name, Neeladri, in honour of her. When a Shepherd hit Lord Srinivasa on the head, a small part of his head went bald. Neeladevi, a princess of the Gandharvas, noticed that there was no hair growth there. She thought that a face that was so beautiful shouldn’t have any flaws. She cuts off a piece of her hair right away and uses her skills to put it on his head.

Lord Srinivasa watches her sacrifice because hair is thought to be the most beautiful part of a woman, and he says that all the hair worshippers give him in Tirumala or Tirupati belongs to Neeladevi. Giving our hair to God is a way to show that we have let go of our ego. Her name is also where the word “Talaneelalu” comes from.

Important factors to note in Kalyanakatta:

  • All Kalyanakatta have free tonsuring services.
  • Before tonsuring, antiseptics are mixed with water and put on the head. This keeps the skin and other parts of the body from getting sick.
  • Geysers are put in bathrooms so that pilgrims with shaved heads can wash their hair with hot water.
  • For tonsure, the pilgrims are given tokens that are made by a computer.
