GURUPAVANAPURA

 
ASTAMI ROHINI 

This is an auspicious day for Narayanopaskas; for it was on this day Lord Krishna was born for jagadoddharana; so held sacred. Special pujas are offered to the deity on this day. Illumination in and out of the Srikoil is done on a grand scale. Festivity greets everywhere, when gaiety submerges the normal gravity. There are many more, besides celebration of marriages etc., in the temple very often. Their variety and frequency make the temple town every busy, and so the temple always crowded. No day passes without some sort of special occurrence held in the Sannidhi. 

As all types of celebrations go on round the clock, moreover throughout the year, there is no wonder that the atmosphere is surcharged with divinity, making irreverence or atheism take to heels at the very sight of the towers itself. History records of Tippu Sultan's shuddering, at the thundering voice from the pandal, when he attempted to loot temple property and cause desecration. Each object of veneration here exudes sublimity that diseases are cured and troubles fled, when soulful prayers are offered. The case of Narayana Bhattathiri's cure from rheumatism is another instance. The British Government realizing its story accorded many facilities and exempted the payment of revenue to temple land. If narration is given full scope, volumes roll from the press; libraries overflow with literature delineating the countless sports of that sweet-Smiling, short natured Sri Balakrishna who hypnotizes the beholders at a single sight.  Avail it and experience the thrill at once.
