Don’t get me wrong Raj, just googled and found the following explanation from Wikipedia. 🙂
“The name Venkateshwara can be split into multiple parts in Sanskrit: Ven (sins), kata (destroyer), and ishwara (Supreme Lord). Using this etymology, Venkateshwara refers to the Supreme Lord who destroys sins.”
Ofcourse not andi, cant beat Wiki and you are absolutely right!
I heard from one of SriChaganti’s disclosures that the name Venkateswara
should be pronounced as “VEEMKATESWARA” since it is made up of
tatathi = teseyyadam
eeswara= yeduru leni vaadu.
