Divinity Around Vitthala Temple

We have seen the Lord Vitthala Darshan on Devshayani Ekadashi on Gurukripa, and now, I wish to share the divinity around the temple. 






Idols of Hindu Deities like Little Krishna, Lord Shiva, Devimaa, Vitthala - Rakhumai,  Krishna with His flute. We perform a ritual called 'PranaPratishtha' after that, these are not just idols, but the Supreme Power in the form of idols. So, Hindus worship Idol is a false concept.



Kumkum : Indian ladies apply small amount of this on their forehead, which is now replaced by Bindi, also, in all Puja - worships rituals, Kumkum is the most essential element. 





Many more divine things in about two pics

Little boy selling coconuts, we have a tradition, to break the coconut outside the temple and offer the pieces to Lord and then take the sacred Prasadam

  1. Very useful post. The ruins of the ancient city of Hampi are strikingly, unexpectedly, even eerily beautiful. This 16th century capital of the Vijayanagara Kingdom lies on the banks of the Tungabhadra River, surrounded by stark rocky ridges and mammoth boulders seemingly precariously balanced on each other. The vast spaces are silent, but the ruins are eloquent. Check out more fact about Vittala Temple also.
