TIRUPATI

Accordingly the Lord killed him with Chakrayudha and got the name Vrisha bhasurahari. This legend is given in Brahmanda Purana.

This same legend is given in Bhavishya Purana in a different manner. According to this Purana. Vrishabhasura was doing daily puja with Tapascharya for five thousand years to a saligrama idol created by Lord Narasimha at Tirumalai. Every day be cut off his own head and offered it as a sacrifice’s the Lord and every day a fresh bead began to grow through the grace of the Lord. Lord Srinivasa doing who was pleased with his austerity appeared before him, and asked him what he wanted. Thereupon Vrishabhasura, who was a great Bhakta, wanted Yuddha Bhiksha, or an opportunity to fight with the Lord, so that he might attain salvation at the hands of the Lord. His request was granted and so the Lord was known as Vrishabhasurahari.
