In 1986 a cassette of popular devotional songs (bhajan-s) was issued by the Sri Venkateswara Temple in Penn Hills. In it, the Pittsburgh area devotees praise Lord Venkateswara ("Lord of the Venkata Hills"), a manifestation of Lord Vishnu, thus:


America vasa jaya govinda
Penn Hills nilaya radhe govinda
sri guru jaya guru, vithala govinda

Victory to Govinda, who lives in America;
Govinda who with Radha resides in Penn Hills.
Victory to Govinda, Vithala, the sacred Teacher.
