 LORD PANDURANGA VITHAL OF PANDHARPUR

Loyal Krishna confessing his alliance with Radha to Rukmini, promised to snap ties of moha with the former. Once, Rukmini found his transgression. It was too much for her. To teaching him a lesson in silent, non-violent way, she resorted to his conversion by a sublime way of exacting a boon of his loyalty to her through penance. Anon she reached the far off Dindirvana and implemented her determination. Was it necessary? Would Krishna endure the pangs of separation? How long could he hang about with others? He made a thorough search and found her in the Dindirvan. Meeting, he tried to win her back, giving her whatever she desired, but desiring his total absolute, unconditioned submission, she showed a fake unalterable austerity. Failing in all, despite emptying the Kubera's treasure chest he launched a counter tapa and stood there before her with arms resting on waist, eyes looking straight upon her, but in vain. He stood in that posture for twenty eight yugas unmoved, and would have continued for yugas umpteen, but for the necessity of giving darsan to Pundarik and bless him on recognition of his unparalleled flial affection. Leaving her there, Krishna appeared before Pundarik in the same posture of his tapa before Rukmini which being extremely bewitching, Panduranga solicited him to remain in the same form as boon. Hence, the self-same beautiful posture for all the adorers. Hail Panduranga hail! you not only feasted your eyes with that enchanting form but enabled mankind to sharing of your fortune for all. It has a symbolic significance too.
