What is the mission carried out by Lord Shri Venkateshwara?

[Smt. Sudha Rani asked: What is the mission carried out by the Human Incarnation, Lord Shri Venkateswara amongst Dushta Shikshana, Shista Rakshana and propagation of Gnana? The Lord in the form of Shri Venkateswara is said to have transformed into an idol, unable to bear the quarrel between His wives, Lakshmi and Padmavati. What is the meaning of this action of God? What is the truth that the Lord in this form preached to mankind?]

Swami replied:- The main aim in the mission of Lord Venkateshwara is to propagate theism against atheism. The people attracted by Him through the materialistic boons become not only theists, but also devotees. The devotion may be impure due to worldly desires. But the Gita says that any good program is defective in the beginning stage like the fire covered by smoke in the initial state of flaming. Gradually, it is expected that the desires will pacify like the vanishing smoke after sometime of kindling the fire (Sarvārambhā hi… Gita). The beginning state is always with erroneous attraction following the ignorant mentality of the devotees. Certainly, there will be good spiritual progress in the right direction because the program is good to help the welfare of devotees.
