seeing through the eyes of scriptures

Those who do not accept Ahovalam as Narasimhadevas "janmasthana" and take grains on Narasimha Caturdasi will go to hell!

Dandavat pranams\
all glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga



  There is some foolish persons   that will not accept Ahovalam as the place of Lord Narasimhadevas apperance, this is simply
due to sins and pure ignorance and envy, and offences to the lotusfeet of Lord Narasimhadeva.
I urge all devotee to see the movie about Ahovalam done by ITV:
 This is from the Ahovalam website:
:
10) OM sthambhAvatiirNaaya nama:
Meaning:
Salutations to the Lord, who incarnated from the pillar at the royal court of Hiranyakasipu/div>
Comments:
Lord's avatAram from the Pillar (Mahaasura gruha-sthUNaath
PrAthurbhavanam) in the court of HiraNya Kasipu is saluted here. The power of
the Lord (VaikunTha KaNTheeravan) with His nail as His sole weapon is praised
by Swamy Desikan in His DasAvatAra stOtram

note : this stambha is at Ahovalam  
13) Om cencusutA manoharAya nama:
Meaning:
Salutations to the Lord, who stole the heart of Chenchu Lakshmi, Who had
incarnated as the daughter of the king of the hunting tribesman of Ahobilam
hills.
Comments:
The AchArya SrI Sookti of VaasantikA PariNayam by the 7th Pattam Srimath
Azhagiya Singar describes the Lord's courtship of Chenchu Lakshmi and His
wedding with Her (e-book#4, www.ahobilavalli.org).
Lord Narasimha married Chenchu Laxmi  at Ahovalam after appearing and killing Hiranyakasipu and his soldiers there
There is also some ignorance by some that it is ok to take grains prasadam on Narasimha Caturdasi this is also a great sin:
I have written about this on my webblock and quoted from Haribhakti Vilasa where Sanatana Goswami has given evidence from
Narasimha Purana
I pray I may never see the face of those who do not accept Ahovalam and refuse to fast for Lord Narasimhadeva on His holy apperance day
Lord Narasimhadeva has stated to Prahlada Maharaja mentioned in Narasimha Purana:

yenaiva kriyamäëena
sahasra dvädaçé phalam
jäyate na måñä vacni
mänuñäëäà mahätmanäm

By observing a single vow of Narasimha Caturdasi, one obtains the merit of observing one thousand Dvädasi vratas. This is a fact and do not think that this statement is an exaggeration
(when ekadasi falls on dvadasi it is even more auspiscious, but  such fasting of 1000 dvadasis is equal to one full fast on Narasimha Caturdasi

Lord Narasimhadevs has stated and recorded in Narasimha Purana:

Text 449
kiïca tatraiva vrata vidhi kathane
(In connection with the description of this
vow in that same Puräëa, this verse is found)
yathä yathä pravåttih syät
pätakasya kalau yuge
tathä tathä vidhäsyanti
madvrataà viralaà jaëäù


The more that sinf ul activities increase in Kali-yuga, the less people will observe this supreme vow of Mine.
Text 450
madvratasya vidhänena
matirna syäd durätman m
sadä päpa ratänäntu
puruñäëäà vikarmmaëi

Sinful-minded people have no interest in observing this vow of Mine. Those who are simply attached to sinful activities only engage in impious acts.

Text 451
vicäryyaivaà prakarttavyaà
mädhave mäsi madvratam
präpte bhüta dine vatsa
sarvva kalmaña näçanam

After considering all these facts, you should observe this vow, which occurs in the month of Vaiçäkha. O child Prahläda, when the auspicious day of Caturdaçi arrives, you should observe this vow, which destroys all sinful reactions
One who disobeys these instructions of Lord Narasimha but thinks he is a devotee or vaisnava is simply a pretender, and lives in hell even at present ...

Comment by Paramananda das on July 25, 2011 at 10:22pm

Lord Caitanya traveled throughout South India, visiting numerous temples along the way. At the South Indian temple of Jiyada-nrsimha He offered prayers to Lord Nrsimhadeva. On His way, He introduced the chanting of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra in every village.

 

After visiting the temple of Trimalla, or Tripadi, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu had to subdue some atheists. He then visited the temple of Ahovala-nrsimha in Daksinatya. There are eight other temples also, and all of them together are called the Nava-nrsimha temples.

 

Lord Caitanya visited the Jiyada-nrsimha temple, which is situated on the top of a hill about five miles away from Visakhapatnam. There is a railway station on the South Indian Railway known as Simhacala. The temple known as Simhacala is the best temple in the vicinity of Visakhapatnam. This temple is very affluent and is a typical example of the architecture of the area. In one stone tablet it is mentioned that formerly a queen covered the Deity with gold plate. The original Deity is situated within the depths of the temple, but there is another Deity, a duplicate, known as the vijaya-murti. This smaller Deity can be moved from the temple and taken on public processions. Priests who generally belong to the Ramanuja-sampradaya are in charge of the Deity worship.

 

After seeing the Deity of Lord Nrsimha in the temple, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu offered His respectful obeisances by falling flat. Then, in ecstatic love, He performed various dances, chanted, and offered prayers. " 'All glories to Nrsimhadeva! All glories to Nrsimhadeva, who is the Lord of Prahlada Maharaja and, like a honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the lotuslike face of the goddess of fortune.

 

In this way Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu recited different verses from the sastra. The priest of Lord Nrsimhadeva then brought garlands and the remnants of the Lord's food and offered them to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

 

After visiting the temple of Jiyada-nrsimha, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu went to the banks of the river Godavari, to a place known as Vidyanagar.

 

After leaving Vidyanagara, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu visited such places of pilgrimage as Gautami-ganga, Mallikarjuna, Ahovala-nrsimha, Siddhavata, Skanda-ksetra, Trimatha, Vrddhakasi, Bauddha-sthana, Tirupati, Tirumala, Pana-nrsimha, Siva-kanci, Visnu-kanci, Trikala-hasti, Vrddhakola, Siyali-bhairavi, Kaveri-tira and Kumbhakarna-kapala.

 

Pana-nrsimha, or Panakal-narasimha, is located in the district of Krishna in the hills known as Mangalagiri, about seven miles from a city known as Vijayawada. One must climb six hundred steps to reach the temple. It is said that when the Lord is offered food with syrup here, He does not take more than half. Within this temple is a conchshell presented by the late king of Tanjor, and it is said that this shell was used by Lord Krsna Himself. During the month of March, a great fair takes place in this temple.

 

In great ecstatic love, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu offered obeisances and prayers unto Lord Nrsimha. The people were astonished to see Lord Caitanya's influence.

 

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu also cleansed the Nrsimha temple inside and outside. Finally, He rested a few minutes and then began dancing.

 

Purport: The Nrsimha temple is a nice temple just outside the Gundica temple. In this temple there is a great festival on the day of Nrsimha-caturdasi. There is also a Nrsimha temple at Navadvipa where the same festival is observed, as described by Murari Gupta in his book Caitanya-carita.

 

There he saw Lord Mahadeva [Siva], the servant of Lord Rama. He then went to Ahovala-nrsimha. After seeing the Ahovala-nrsimha Deity, Caitanya Mahaprabhu offered many prayers unto the Lord. He then went to Siddhavata, where He saw the Deity of Ramacandra, the Lord of Sitadevi.
