MANGALAGIRI

And people who are relieved of their problems are visiting to offer this ritual to the Lord, their number is ever growing and consuming several mounds of jaggery. Everyday and throughout the year that too. Scores of bhaktas visit everyday and huge quantities of Panaka is offered. And the peculiar feature observed here is the absence of any other image. Only Narisimha's icon - a Swayamvyakta is adorning this Rock-cut temple and is adored with boundless arodur. Another stunning fact discernable here is the absence of flies, or insects of any kind, though jaggery is found in abundance, brought for making Panaka.

Even if seen with microscopic lens, none detect any irritating creature creeping or flying in the vicinity. It is Lord's Mahima! That mirrors His anantavatsalya!! And marks him out as a Mokshapradatha first and last!!! There by it establishes that his ways are incomprehensible to the test-tube scientists, and inexplicable by the book drunk scholars. To the bhaktas like Prahlad, it is as clear as amalaka on the palm. They explain and enthrall the listeners for hours and days if attendance is given. Another odd feature observable in the Garbhagriha is that there is no passage for the huge quantities of Panaka to drain it out. Where does it go and how? Look! that entire area is always dry and hot? Nobody knows except ONE and that greatest alone knows how to draw HIS children to HIS feet by means best. It is again a mystery to all but not to bhaktas. Let us now descend down the flight of steps, numbering 500 to the foot of hill to feast our eyes with several temples dedicated to gods and liberal endownments made by the astika- mahaprabhus from time to time.
