AHOBALAM

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.
