It is of
interest to note that no Yantra- pratishta can be complete without this Narasimha
Anushtrup engraved upon it. Thus this is the very basis for all yantras.
It is also interesting to see that Arjuna’s prayer
when he saw Lord Krishna in his
Vishwaroopa in the Bhagavatgita seems to
be more or less in relation of the various
words, Ugra, Veera etc., in the same sequence as in the mantra above.
A close study of the Slokas twenty to thirty one of chapter
II of Bhagavatgita reveals a direct connection between them and the mantra starting from
Ugra and ending with Namamyaham.
Thus it will be seen that the Upanishads, the Divyaprabandhams, and the Gita all
mention the greatness of Narasimha Mantra.
Though there are other very important Kshetras
dedicated to Lord Narasimha, still Ahobalam is the premier place among them and it
is the only place where all the nine forms of the Lord are worshipped.
Besides it is a place sanctified by the Alwars, and
the Jeers, Ahobalam is therefore a great place of spiritual and religious significance.
