Shri Radhe Maa - Who is superior Lord Vishnu or Lord Shiva?
Sant Narhari Sonar, master craftsman of gold ornaments, was such a staunch devotee of Lord Mallikarjun Shiva that even though he visited his Ishta Devata’s temple in Pandharpur every day, he had vowed that he would never enter the famous Lord Vitthal temple.
He was a committed Shiva and he would not have anything to do with Vaishnavas and their Vishnu who stood on a brick in the sanctum of the Vitthal temple.
When a customer asked Narhari to make a waist band of gold for Lord Vitthala, Narhari who had vowed to never look upon any deity other than Shiva agreed but placed a condition. Narhari would stay blindfolded when he entered the temple to measure the size of the Lord’s waist and he would exit the temple without taking the blind fold.
The customer agreed. However, when Narhari measured Lord Vitthal’s waist, he was surprised to note that the idol was that of Shiva. He felt the trishul, the deer skin, the moon on his head and Ganga. He asked the customer if he had been brought to a Shiva temple instead of the Vitthal temple. The customer assured him that he was holding the idol of Lord Vitthal.
Narhari took off the blindfold and saw Lord Vitthal standing before his surprised eyes. He understood what Vitthal had to say: there was no difference between Shiva and Vishnu. God was indeed one. Narhari, his eyes opened, burst into tears and prostrated before the Lord of Pandharpur!
Jai, Jai Rama Krishna Hari! Har Har Mahadev!
May Mata Rumini of Pandharpur bless us with devotion for the sweet lord of Pandharpur who is the boat that helpls all beings cross the ocean of samsara!
