About this song:

An avatar of Lord Vishnu, Vitthala is hugely worshipped in Maharashtra, India. The legend behind Lord Vitthala is very interesting. Pundarik was a devout and a caring son to his parents. Pleased by his devotion to his parents, Lord Vishnu appeared at the doors of Pundarik. Pundarik asked the Lord, ‘ who are you?’ . the Lord replied, ‘ I am Vishnu”. Pundarik’s parents were asleep at the time and he did not want to disturb them by their talk. So, he gave a brick for Lord Vishnu to stand. In Marathi Language  “Vithh” means a brick – the one who stood on a brick came to be known as  “Vitthala”.
