Deenabandhu Lord Krishna - the Lord of Compassion, presides in the "Temple of the Healer" at Indira Nagar, Bangalore. His benign grace and bountiful blessings have been flowing to His devotees since its consecration by Pujya Swami Chinmayananda in 1978. In the idol of Deenabandhu, the devotees invoke the healing powers (in the Doctors) and the curative powers (in the patients) of the Lord. Lord Krishna as Kaliya Mardana is dancing on the seven-hooded serpent Kaliya. The seven hoods represent Kama (desire), Krodha (anger), Lobha (greed), Moha (attachment), Mada (pride), Matsarya (stinginess) and Ahamkara (the feeling of "I"/"Me"). We can, with constant and complete surrender to the Lord, crush and overcome all negative tendencies in us and in due course come to realise the Supreme Brahman. Explaining the symbolism of Kaliya Mardana, Swami Chinmayananda said: "Krishna is dancing on the serpent (the ego) which spits forth the poison (vasanas) in our life stream. The Lord's dance within the body removes the poison.
