BALAKRISHNA OF UDIPI

Udipi has become the pioneer in this industry, in addition to being the renowned citadel of Madhvamata, dedicated to the propogation of spiritual glory of Hinduism.

It has some more unique features - it is this place that witnessed Parasurama's merging in Sivalinga; it is here Lord Krishna accepted gruel from the famous Sankirthanacharya Kanakadasa first, and since formed one of the chief dishes offered for naivedyam.It is here an ordinary brahmin lad Vasudeva turned into Matadhipathi of global significance; it is to this place Lord Krishna's image sailed concealed in gopi mud; it is this town went by the name of Rupya pitha; it is to this temple tank, Bhagirathi came down once for Acharya Madhava's bath and continued to be coming once in every 12 years; it is here the Ashtapitadhipathis are honoured with Paryaya padavi; it is here the devotees see the archamurthi through the window; it is the temple of this place giving regular annadana since the advent of Madvacharya, and it is this Parasurama kshetra that demonstrated the oneness of a Hari and Hara through several episodes.

Famous as mokshapuri since the Vedic times, associated with the incarnations of Lord Vishnu; worshipped by illustrious dasas; sanctified by a long line of great pontiffs starting with Sri Madhavacharya, patronised by theist rulers; this pilgrimage centre is luring a steady influx of devotees since time immemorial.
