LORD NARASIMHA OF KARPARA KSHETRA

ANTIQUITY

The glory of this Karpara Kshetra has been elaborately dealt with in the Skanda purana, and it is Narada who described it at length about the sanctity of this place during his narration of the glory of the river Krishna. According to the legend, there lived here one famous sage by name Karpara. He was a Narasimhopasaka and led a pious life-praying to lord Narasimha day in and day out. Not satisfied with it, he did penance, propitiating his istadaivam Lord Narasimha for long. When the Lord appeared before him, he prayed to him humbly to abide in that place permanently to enabling him adore with great fervor and emancipate mankind, wallowing in the transitory pleasures. Pleased with the unique humanism the Lord said AMEN! Since then the Lord has been dwelling here and fulfilling the desires of the adorers to their utmost satisfaction. It was on the auspicious occasion of Karkataka Sankramana this occurred. Deeming it efficacious, Brahma and Maheswar, along with numerous gods visit this place in the form rivers and worship the Lord. During that holy moment, the river Krishna overflowing its banks encircle the temple and enter the garbha griha to offer jalabhishek, as it were, but humans satisfy themselves with mere feasting their eyes with this sacrosanct sight. This unique awesome feature is luring thousands of astikas and they are worshipping the lord with great fervor.
