Dehotsarga - The Hallowed Spot

Hindu Books > Temples And Legends of India > Temples And Legends Of Somanatha > Dehotsarga - The Hallowed Spot

Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

Saurashtra was the adopted home of Shri Krishna, acclaimed for centuries as 'God Himself', and no greater or richer integrated personality, reaching out to divine perfection, has been known to life or fiction, and no higher message was given to man than in his exhortation to Arjuna in the Bhagavadgita.

Many places in Saurashtra are reminiscent of him. He killed the tyrant Kamsa of Mathura and reinstated Ugrasena on the throne. When Jarasandha, the powerful ruler, invaded Mathura, he led his people, the Yadavas, to safety in Dwarka in  Saurashtra. Then he kidnapped and married Rukmini.In the Mahabharata he appears for the first time at the svayamvara of Draupadi, and there after dominates the events in the Epic throughout.

Author : Shri Kanaiyalal Maneklal Munshi
