SIMHACHALAM

Introduction

Simhachalam, the august seat of Lord Narasimha, one of the ten incarnations of God Srimannarayana, the highest and the most potent among the Trimurthis is one of the four reputed Narasimha kshetras of eternal significance, attracting millions of Narsimhopasakas, since the Kritayuga onwards. Of the ten avataras of the Lord, assumed for shattering adharma and stabilising the shrinking frame of Dharma, brought about by the atrocious davana krityas of the formidable Rakshasas, the Narasimhavatara is the fourth, and the most dreadful. It is a strange combination of man and beast-a ferociously aggressive and frightfully shocking lion's head over the sublime, yet broad shoulders, adorning his gracefully enchanting human form. This assumption of that odd blend of Nara cumkesari was caused by the expedience of killing Hiranyakasipu, who would not be killed either by man or beast, singly or collectively.
