Lord Trivikrama (the Pradhan)

 two Girirajs'

This Lord Trivikram was given by one yogi. "...........This is how I recall Bhavananda's explanation of the appearance of Lord Trivikrama. He might remember some details, and especially Jananirvasa might also.

In the late 70's, Acyutananda Swami was in South India bathing in the Godavari river with a yogi who was a friend of Iskcon. The yogi dipped down into the water and produced by his mystic power an urn. He handed the urn to Acyutananda Swami who reached inside and found the salagrama. Acyutanada Swami gave the Salagram to Jananirvasa who worhiped him in Mayapur. Bhavananda asked Jananirvasa for the Salagram, and then in turn Bhavananda presented Lord Trivikrama to me  - I guess it was 1979 or 1980."
