THE LORD OF GURUVAYUR

Even as a boy, He performed many miraculous deeds that testified to His being God incarnate on the earth. The destruction of the demoness Putana, the revelation of His cosmic form, Viswarupa, as He opened His mouth to His foster-mother, Yasoda, the lifting up of the mountain Govardhana, the overcoming of Kaliya, the serpent, who fouled the waters of the Yamuna, the devouring of the forest conflagration and, to crown it all, His amorous dalliance with the Gopis are some of the wondrous acts Of His early boyhood-acts that indicated how He combined human and divine traits.

In later years, He proved Himself a dauntless warrior, an unsurpassed statesman and a world teacher. He slew Kamsa and many other wicked demons. As Arjuna's charioteer he took a loading part in the great battle of Kurukshetra where He delivered His eternal message of the Bhagavad Gita.  He proved His statesmanship by acting as peacemaker between the Kauravas and the Pandavas and by founding the city of Dwaraka and being its wise ruler. Lastly, as spiritual guide and preceptor, He taught the supreme truths of Yoga, Bhakti and Jnana to Arjuna and Uddhava and through them to all mankind.
