Shri Vitthal – the Deity from Pandharpur !

‘Shri Vitthal is My incarnation. Hence, I have assumed the form of Shri Vitthal by being smeared with curd and milk. Though the Scriptures (Shastras and Purans) state that the complexion of Shri Vitthal is dusky, but after being consecrated ( with curd and milk) it has become fair endowing Him with the name of Pandurang.’ – Shrikrushna
