DHARMAPURI

Lord Brahma did penance for a long time in the Dandakaranya. Once, during that period, a king by name Dharma Varma, who was ruling that part of the land, was very eager to know about the most important of all the four Purusharthas. With this desire, Dharma Varma went to a pious man named Vishnu Sarma, who taught him that there was no salvation in this world for any one who did not worship Lord Vishnu. Accordingly, Dharma Varma set out for penance with strong faith and determination. He was instructed by Vishnu Sarma to pacify Lord Brahma first, as only through him could Lord Vishnu in the form of Narasimha be approached. So, Dharma Varma first pacified Lord Brahma with his penance. Brahma appeared before him and invited Lord Narasimha in a sacrifice. This place is at present called the Brahma Pushkarani.
