AHOBALAM

Uniqueness

.....Ahobalam! Ahobalam!! Twice was this repeated. From , up above the skies it came. By the celestials it was uttered. To the man on earth it applied. A resounding chorus at the highest pitch at it. Heaven danced in ecstasy, and the Earth burst into hystorical cries! There was joy in surfeit here, there and everywhere. This exuberant general rejoicing over the death of Hiranyakasipu published to the worlds the omnipresence of the omnipotent Providence, whose mightiest arms slit open the stomach of a mightier brother of that mighty Hiranyaksha, who displayed his super abundant, extraordinary muscle power by rolling the Earth like a mat and hurling it into the fathomless ocean. That heinous death, rid the worlds of the most dreadful demon, whose very name sent Devendra into hiding more than once. Hence the utterance"... Narasimham Param devam Ahobalam! Ahobalam!! by the devathas. En masse. It was uttered there high above, but referred to a person and place down below. Though this legend and its quintessence is flowing in the veins of every Hindu right from infancy, it is a pity that almost all are unaware of the exact place of action and time of action of that occurrence.
