ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

 

ARCHAMURTHI

The archamurthi worshipped here resembles that of Srikrishna's form assumed at a tire when Bhishma pitamaha turned invincible. A major portion of the army fell during Bhishma's nine day generalship. Panic enveloped thick and fast then the Pandavas grew restless. Army too lost hope. At this critical juncture, Srikrishna exhorted the unwilling Arjuna to kill the grandsire for sure Victory. 

But Arjuna was in a dilemma. He had been fighting only to obey the injunctions of Krishna from the beginning; for he did not like blood - shed, nor wear the blood - stained crown. For Krishna that was the only one chance to fulfill the purpose of his incarnation - dushtasamhar. So he jumped from the chariot in all fury like the hungry lion on the corpulent elephant. His anger is indescribable, nor the ethereal charm that gushed out at that critical time.
