Hi Raj, and welcome! I the 8 day Swiss Saver Pass
is a great choice, as it's very convenient and economical for your stay and the trips you've planned. Just enter your country of residence and other relevant travel data under the header 'Where to buy your Swiss Pass' at the page I just linked to for an overview of purchase options and prices.
I'm not sure if Lucerne is the best base for your plans. It's a good starting point for the trip to Titlis, but for visiting the Trümmelbach falls, the Jungfraujoch, Beatenberg or lake Thun it would be better to stay in or near Interlaken. I'm not sure when you're leaving, but you can look for accommodation in nearby towns too. Consider Wilderswil, Bönigen, Ringgenberg, Faulensee, Spiez or Brienz for example. These pages
may be interesting too.
The trips to Chateaux de Chillon and especially Chur/Zermatt would be very long from Lucerne. Did you check the timetable
for exact traveling times? It may be better to choose a second base as well. You could first visit Bern and then head onto Montreux for a visit to the Chillon Castle and an overnight stay. Then, travel onto Zermatt, take the Glacier Express to Chur, and get to Zurich Airport from there. This itinerary would reduce traveling times.
