BALAKRISHNA OF UDIPI

Mother Devaki's ecstatic raptures ended in streams of joyous tears. Could that joy ever be confined for the bounds of imagination? Seeing her in that happy abandon, Krishna snatched away from her the churning rod and the rope. This rapturous moment was so enthralling to Rukmini, seeing all unseen requested her Lord to make one image in that enchanting, tiny, naughty form for her worship. It was done anon. She worshipped this with great ardour till her death. When the Yugapurusha departed, Arjuna deposited this superb piece in Rukmini vana.Centuries rolled into yugas; yet that was there concealed in the mud of gopi chandan, the natural substance in abundance there, but used for sacred purposes elsewhere. It was in Kaliyuga, precisely during Madvacharya's settlement in the famous temple, one day, a merchant ship carrying gopi mud neared the shore of Malpe. All on sudden, there developed gales and the ship was blown off into the mid-sea. The sailors raised hue and cry for help.The volume of their pitch reflecting the horror they were in, reached the ears of Madvacharya, who was then meditating on the shore. At once, he waved his bark garment. And lo! the ferocity of hurricane subsided, as it raised miraculously.
