Lord Narasimha is superior to Parasurama

Lord Narasimha is superior to Parasurama

I was reading one Gaudiya Math sannyasi write that Parasurama is superior to Lord Narasimha.I was stunned of the ignorance and offence to Lord Narasimha .Parasurama is a Sakatyavesa avatar ,he can never be on the same level as Lord Narasimha ,it means this sannyasi must have not read and studied Laghu Bhagavatamrta of Srila Rupa Goswami .Srila Rupa Goswami establishes that Krsna is the original Personality of Godhead the Adi Purusha ,Svayam…

It is mentioned in many sastras and confirmed by acaryas, there is the Rama setu from Ramesvarama to Sri Lanka ,there are…

GS 4.8: In the Story of the Yajna-sitas, the Glories of Ekadashi

The interesting thing about Garga Samhita like here in canto 4 it gives so much details ,the Yajnic Sitas ,where Deities of Sita used in fire sacrifices, after Sita was banished to the forest, and each time a Yajna was there another Sita Deity installed because Lord Ramachandra could not do these Yajnas without His wife,so one day all the Yajnic Sitas came to life as Deities are persons and they demanded Lord Ramachandra…
