Arca-vigraha – also murti; Deity of the Lord (in the temple) through which the Lord reveals Himself to His devotees and enables them to serve Him personally.

Since we are not (yet) able to perceive the pure spiritual form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, He has manifested His presence through material elements such as a painting or a murti.

So we can see your beauty and meditate on it. In this form the Lord personally accepts the worship of his devotees.

Sri Jagannatha

Jagannatha means the lord (natha) of the universe (jagat) and refers to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna.

Sri Baladeva

Baladeva, the god (deva) of power (bala) or Balaram, is Krishna's elder brother and his first immediate extension.

Srimati Subhadra

Subhadra, the auspicious, is Krishna's sister, embodies the mystical power of God (yoga-maya) and is the wife of the great Pandava warrior Arjuna.

Sri Caitanya

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Caitanya=Consciousness, (1486-1533) is a unified embodiment of Radha and Krishna. He is considered a hidden incarnation because he does not openly reveal his identity as the incarnation of God, but plays the role of a devotee (bhakta avatar). The scriptures describe Caitanya as the 'golden avatar of Kaliyugas' who, through the chanting of the Holy Names of Krishna, brings pure love of God into the world.

Sri Nityananda

Sri Nityananda, eternally (nitya) immersed in bliss (ananda), is the transcendental brother of Caitanya, who is regarded as a more merciful incarnation of God and who blesses everyone who chants the holy name of God with confidence.
