SIMHACHALAM

Indeed, a mere sight of that awfully terrifying form made Hiranyakasipu run away, though his very name sent shivers down the spine of the highest of celestials-Devendra. On occasion more than once. Despite striking instant terror to the timorous diffident and spineless innocent, it was a grand feast to the eyes of the theists, nay, a mesmerizingly blissful to the god-toxicated evolved souls. It is this pleasant form that metamorphosed a five-summer-young kid into a supreme devotee not only among danavas but human s too; it is this form that proved to the world that God answers every call of the genuine adorer at any time, or place; it is this that testified to His Omnipresence, one of His chief attributes; it is this that established the fact of His Supreme concern for his devotees and preference for lokodharna that won for him the much coveted honorific titles of Bhaktajanaparijata and astrikapakshapata. Though appallingly terrorizing externally, it is pliably responsive, and flexibly sensitive internally.
