THE LORD OF GURUVAYUR

Dwaraka of the South

The glory of Guruvayur-the place has also come to be justly known as the Dwarka of the South-thus rests on the divinity of the idol installed there which represents the full manifestation of the Lord Mahavishnu as was revealed to Vasudeva and Devaki at the time of Krishnavatara; it is that attractive, world -enchanting form of Sri Krishna endowed with the four lustrous arms carrying the conch, the discus, the mace and the lotus.

Adorning Himself with the divine tulasi garland and pearl necklace, the Lord here appears in all radiance. His eyes stream forth the milk of compassion and kindness. To millions, Guruvayurappan or the Lord of Guruvayur is -living deity who answers their prayers. He is Sri Krishna, the divine cowherd who played his flute in Gokulam and \/rindavana and enchanted the whole world with his music. It is not only the gopis or milkmaids who yearn for oneness with Him, but all men and women who wish to be liberated from samsara.
