THE LORD OF GURUVAYUR

Introduction

Sri Krishna took birth in the city of Mathura, on the banks of the Yamuna, probably three thousand years before the birth of Jesus Christ. The purpose of his avatara or descent to earth was to destory adharma and to reveal to the world the splendor of God. He is called the Purnavatara of Vishnu, that is, the full manifestation of the Lord Supreme, as contrasted with the other incarnations that were only partial revelations of the Godhead.
