SIMHACHALAM - SRI VARAHA LAKSHMI NARASIMHASWAMY TEMPLE 
THE TWIN POETS

It was in the Moghul period, particularly during the region of bigots, the temple was threatened with invasion. Spineless theists Bewailed their lot when they heard the march of army making temples treasury as its target. Some left their homes and others prayed to the abundant mercy of the Lord for protection of life, property and honour. Among them, two persons dedicating their lives to writing and propagating the Lords sports stood in the fore front for reverent mention. Knowing that physical might against blood-thirsty day-light robbers would not solve the problem, they directed their steps into the innermost part of the sanctum and ripped opened their shattered hearts o Lord Narasimhaswamy. Their unbearable pathetic affliction and irrepressible grief flowed down in the form of verse, appealing to HIM or instant succour of driving out the iconoclasts and protect the sanctity of the shrine. Poem after poem, applauding the Lord's miraculous acts that saved thousands of grief stricken devotees in the past slipped down from the lips of Kurmanath and they were copied at once by his companion Hariharadas. Each was a dazzling gem embodying a series of anecdotes, like His saving Prahlad, Draupadi, Gajendra, Kuchela, Dhruva etc., when caught in the whirlpool of misery. When the frenzy reached climax on exhausting all the known acts of His relief, he insinuated Him that His attributes, like anadharakshaka and aapadbhandhava would go bereft of meaning. The refrain of each poem - "Vairi Hararamha! Simhadri Naarasimha" reiterates His formidable stand against enemies.
