Towards the close of the Dwapara Yuga two Rishis by name Gopila and Gopralaya prayed for
Lord Krishna's darsan. A voice from above directed them to proceed straight to Dwaraka and
offer prayer to Lord Krishna in person.
the two Rishis commenced their journey towards Dwaraka, walking during the day and resting
at night, observing the Nitya Karmanushthana. One day, they lost themselves in meditation
till Kali Yuga started after the close of Dwapara Yuga. The Rishis were unaware of the end
of Dwapara Yuga. As usual, they commenced their journey after meditation.
When they reached the banks of Yamuna River, they came across
Narada who informed them that Lord Krishna had already completed his mission on earth by
the close of Dwapara Yuga and left for Vaikunta. On hearing this the two Rishis, were
struck mute. Narada consoled them
and blessed them with the sacred Deva Darsana Mantra and advised them to go to
Senbagaranyam in the South on the sacred River Kaveri and to do penance uttering the
sacred Deva Darsana Mantra on the banks of the holy Haridra Nadi.
