BALAKRISHNA OF UDIPI

THE TEMPLE

This famous temple is situated in the Car Street, the spiritual treasure house of Udipi, as it were. This beautifully designed and well-built Car Street, studded with Mutts and temples is rectangular in form, and broad in extent. And it is the haven of eight eminent pontiffs and learned scholars. As we enter the Car street, the imposing tower of Krishna Mutt greets our sight. Underneath the tower lies the reputed Kanakadasa Kindi Kanakadasa window -- an integral part of Kankadasa Mantap, enshrining the image of the Saint - Poet Kanakadesa, who stayed here during his visit to the temple. And this one is held in high esteem and equated with other places of worship. Of the illustrious dasas, like Purandaradasa, Vijayadasa, etc. Kanakadasa is deemed superior. When he visited this place, Saint Vadiraja, recognising the highly evolved soul enshrining in him, arranged for his stay a cottage lying just opposite the present Krishna Mandir. He spent the whole time singing in praise of Krishna's glory to the accompaniment of Tambura. Despite a wall separating him and the Lord's image, he enjoyed the sight of Balakrishna's divyamangala rupa seeing him with his inner eye. Can there be any barrier for the antarchakshuvu - inner eye? After a few days, there heard an ear splitting sound of earth quake one night. And it stopped soon after making a crack in the wall adequate enough to peep in at the image of Balakrishna in the temple.
