Stop selling god
Give $10K and you sit next to god, give $100K they will bring god to your house. Are you kidding me????

Please stop selling the god and related pujas. Some of the so called administrators keeping these fees like $10K to $100 and allowing them to participate during the Kalyanotsavam and for others after 1PM, what is this? Most of Indian immigrants are educated in USA and can afford these sevas, but per my instinct, I feel it is selling god, those who pays more money, sits next to the idol, and lesser you pay, far you sit. What is this?

As long as you value it, the games will go on. Please worship god if you believe in. But do not encourage money minded and meaningless acts. We all know what is the status of xxxx temple and what happened with all the donations we give. Temple by temple, one after one, turning to this kind of acts.

Please stop taking advantage devotee's beliefs. If honestly you can do some service, do it, otherwise please do not abuse the beliefs, spirituality, devotional feelings.

I do not mean to hurt anybody's feelings, but I by myself hurt the way god is being sold. Publicly, privately and shamelessly.
I can afford these so called donations/fees/charge or whatever you call it, but I am not going.

God cannot be sold/bought
God neither be sold nor be bought. However, the process (puja) and procedure at temples are being sold commercially and cinically which are damaging the sentiments of devotees.

Preists are helping to lord venkateshwara
I think preists are valuable next gods,thats why they r helping lord venkateshwara in order to pay final debt owed to lord kubera,
So please stop selling the God,he is the creator for everything.

My 2 cents
I am not so sure why you think it is selling God. If you wish to participate, you can and if you wish to watch you can just do that too. Everything is expensive guys - It is expensive to do an event. You are willing to spend 1000 for your kids birthday party but not 100 for the God who gave you that 1000.

I am sure you are working somewhere - Think if you are really worth the money that you are receiving every day.

There is nothing wrong in providing some of the amount you earn to a temple - They can use it to serve the community and also the uplifting of our identity here in this far country.

If you do not wish to provide it to the temple, please donate somewhere else - but please do not discourage someone who wants to donate for our society here.

My intention is not to hurt anyone and I am sorry if I have...
