The very mention of his name conjures up a series of fantastic spectacles of awe-some miracles starting from birth till his niryana. wrought by a common place hunter. He was born to Devaki and Vasudeva in Jail, but brought up in Repalli by Yasoda. He is the ninth incarnation descended to kill Sisupala and Dumrakethu. the sworn-enemies to righteousness. He enacted such spectacularly awe-inspiring acts that he was deified by one and all even from infancy. His destroying of several asuras sent by his own maternal uncle Kamsa. a remorseless pitrudrohi are subject of eternal fascination, and the ineffable sports he demonstrated for Jagadodharana are a legion that they threw a halo round him while he was alive. His amorous Rasalila and inimitable diplomacy won for him a reputation that can neither be clothed in any language. nor enacted on stage. Barrels of ink forming letters on tons of paper cannot bring out even an iota of his glory and power. Would Anantha with his thousand tongues atleast recreate in sweet song. or plain prose the super natural role he placed on the sacred Kurukshetra Punyabhumi? Have the excitingly thrilling scenes of ravishing cow-herd bells of Repalle surrounding him and his dancing to their mellifluous tunes brought out by Jayadeva in full ? Would any prototype of Chanukya emulate his assmana Rajatantragnata ? Superlatives bend their heads. rhetorical flourish dies down the moment it tries to capture his multitudinous myriad splendour.

So temples. temples and temples of all sizes in multidenous shapes for adoration are built and are being built to his chaturvamsi rupas and names. such as Kesava. Narayana. Madhava. Govinda. Vishnu. Madhusudana. Trivikrama. Vamana. Sridhara. Rishikesa. Padmanabha. Damodara. Samkarshana. Vasudeva. Pradhyumna. Aniruddha. Purusothama. Adhokshaja. Narasimha. Achyuta. Janardhana. Varadaraja, Upendra, Hari, Mukunda and Sri Krishna. But they have only neared the fringe of the ever evading Harivillu. No human being and particularly Hindu is ignorant of his adbhuta lilas demonstrated during his life in Dwaparayuga. And to be ignorant of even one of them is to be far behind times and could be deemed a freak. since his bitter inveterate enemies too have grasped atleast a few only to criticize. or exhibit their shallowness. So narration in a limited space is an exercise in futility like catching the wind in a cabbage net It is wise to visit as many as to know the different facets of his form for profit and emancipation. As there are thousands dedicated to him to various forms and names. only a few are taken for visitation. And they suffice the purpose. Let us move from...
