MANGALAGIRI-PANAKA NAIVEDYAM

Incidentally the whole region is saved from annihilation by the infinite mercy of Narasimhaswamy. Neither humans nor vegetation would have been seen here and its surroundings, if this was not introduced. The existence of temple town and people are all due to the Lord's boundless mercy. It needs narration of the past history. So read.

The August Narasimhaswamy form with which he is abiding in this hill bears testimony of his omni compassion. But for this, the surrounding region throbbing with millions and millions of people would have been a leavamaya, barren, rocky soil fit for neither habitation nor cultivation; for, the hill over which he is seated according to one version was once a live volcano, but turned into a gracefully cool hill now. That apurva Karunaikasindhu, by drinking potfuls of beverage is mollifying the blazing volcano in addition to slaking his enormous thirst caused by the burning pedestal over which he is seated. And so he is popularly known as Panakala Narasimhaswamy, ever contented with Panaka Naivedyam in preference to Panchamritabhishekam, or panner Prakshalanam. Some more about the temple now. And it is this Narasimhaswamy that is conferring emancipation by a mere single visit with soulful prayer; it is here Anjaneya is dwelling permanently as Kshetrapalaka at the instance of Sri Rama for Lokakalyana; it is in this kshetra lies the grand shrine of Lakshminarasimhaswamy built by Yudhishtara in Dwaparayuga; it is this holy place visited by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Adisankara, .Ramanujacharya, who sung in praise of the archamurthi; it is this kshetra sanctified by the Lakshmi pushkarini, built for the ceremonial bath of Sri Mahavishnu......
