Lord Jagannath of Puri is considered to be the form of the eighth avatar of Lord Maha Vishnu, Lord Krishna. The form of Lord Jagannath has been carved out of the log that came out of a Kalpa Vruksha.
The symmetrical face of the lord with round eyes that are open wide are a sight to behold. The idol doesn't have arms or legs. It is to show that the Lord sees everything and is ever awake.
He doesn't need hands to bless his devotees or to give out good fortune to them. He doesn't need legs to visit the devotees and always resides in their hearts.
Today, we bring to you the Madhurashtakam, which is dedicated to Lord Krishna. The set of eight shlokas is divine and is one of the sweetest compositions dedicated to Lord Krishna.
It was composed by Sri Vallabhacharya and talks about how each and every aspect of Lord Krishna's form is filled with sweetness and bliss. So, read on to find the Madhurashtakam and its translation.
