BALAKRISHNA OF UDIPI

Everyone is to be satisfied with seeing the image of that Jaganmohanakara adorned with churning rod in the right hand and rope in the left and with innocent face flashing smiles. No similars in size, pose, charm etc. are found anywhere in India. This garbhagriha has many more surprises to surprise the devotees. The belief current is that the oil lamp lighted first by that great Madhvapitadhipathi its still burning. By feeding it with oil periodically, it is kept up burning unextinguished. 

Another! The illustrious Chaitanya Maharshi of Brindavan during his visit got a lamp lighted from this Akhanda jyoti and took it to Brindavan to preserve it there. So the Madhvacharya's jyoti is not only illumining this Krishna Mandir, but in the very far off place, where the Lord demonstrated his sports some millenniums ago. There are two shrines on either of the hall infront of it dedicated to Mukhyaprana and Garuda. And these two according to tradition are brought from Ayodhya by Sri Vadiraja and installed by himself. Another object that draws reverent attention is the Tulasi Brindavan. It is worshipped in the bright fortnight of lunar month of Karthika with unprecedented fervor. For 12 days along with pujas devotees dance round it. An oddity! Next visit-worthy shrine is Madhvacharya's. Here the Acharya reveals in loin's cloth with a stick beside right and the mudras of knowledge and abhaya. It was installed by Sri Vadiraja with a view to instilling and igniting the high ideals of devotion to gurus. Simhasana is another venerated place with two rooms - big and small. The idols of the Matadhipathi are kept in the small room and the other issued for cooking special dishes for the Lord's naivedya. There is a room called Canki next, where the Acharya dines with eminent personages.
