Brahmothsavam – 2016 Nava Narasimha Kshetram – Ahobilam

“A Treat for the eyes and retreat for the soul”
Invitation-Ahobilam Brahmothsavam - 2016
Come and feel the subline atmosphere of the Nallamallai Hills, You will find the ambience created by the green forests and the water falls – very soothing for the body. Breath the Divine air, Be Blessed by the Nava Narasimhas and get spiritual solace to your soul.
Sri Narasimha Avatara is the only Avatara, in which the Lord exhibits his extreme fury against Hiranyakasipu, who tortures his son and simultaneously bestowed His unbounded grace and sowmyam on His devotee, the child Prahlada. Such was His might while destroying the demon that Devas, witnessing, exclaimed with awe “AHO BALAM! AHO BALAM! (what a might!) and thus the place is known as Ahobilam. Brahmanda Purana indicates that Hiranyakasipu’s palace was located in the present Ahobilam and the pillar from which He emerged is known as the Ugra Stambham.
Ahobilam – one among 108 Srivaishnavite Divyadesams, stands pre-eminent as the place of incarnation of Lord Vishnu as Narasimha. It is only here that Lord Narasimha is worshipped in nine forms. Ugram, Veeram, Mahavishnum, Jwalantham, Sarvathomukam, Nrisimham, Beeshanam, Badram, Mrutyo
Sri Prahlada Varadan
Mrutym Namamyaham – This Anushtup Mantra enlists the nine facets of Narasimha – Nava Narasimha. They are – Ugra (angry), Veera (valourous), Mahavishnu (Lakshmi Narasimha), Jwalantha (emitting flames), Sarvathomukha (Narasimha with a number of faces), Narasimha (as He appeared before Brahma). Bheeshana (frightful), Badra (auspicious), Mrutyo Mrutyu (killer of death). This mantra empowered Brahma to develop the four vedas. Lord Rama during his search for Seetha Devi, worshipped Narasimha here and His Stothram is Panchaamritha Stothram. Lord Venkateswara offered Neivedyam to Lord Narasimha, during His wedding with Padmavathi Thayar at Tirumala Hills. Lord Siva praised the Lord Narasimha as ‘Supreme God’ in His “Mantrarajapada Stothram”. Rudra has a small shrine adjacent to Sri Ahobila Sannidhi.
Garuda did tapas here and the Lord appeared as Jwala Narasimha before Him. Adi Sankara was protected from danger to his life and he glorified Narasimha by his famous ‘Karavalamba Stothram’. Thirumangai Azhwar had sung in praise of Lord Narasimha with ten Pasurams. Acharya Ramanuja and Swami Nigamantha Desikan had worshipped here. Thalapakkam Annamacharya, disciple of Adivan Satakopa Jeeyar of Sri Ahobila Math, had sung many keerthanas on Lord Narasimha.
Ahobilam Brahmothsavam - 2016
Pilgrims who visit Ahobilam are blessed with immense benefits. Sage Narada avers that a single day’s stay in this holy place grants one the benefits he would otherwise will have obtained by living in Varanasi for a thousand yugas, in Prayag for twenty yugas and in Gaya for a hundred yugas. Any charitable act done here in this kshetra, however minuscule it is, in quantity or scale, be it offering a handful of annam (cooked rice) or giving away some coins, bestows enormous (mountainous) benefits on the donor.
Navagrahas have worshipped the Nava Narasimhas at Ahobilam. They have been relieved of their problems from Asuras, and from the curses they received from Maharishis. For example, Chandra (Moon) took to the worship of Sri Karanja Narasimha, Mars to Jwala Narasimha and so on. Devotees worshipping Nava Narasimhas here will be rid of the malefic aspects of the respective Navagrahas.
SRI AHOBILA MATH Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Himself imparted ‘Sri Narasimha Preshamantra’ to Sri Kidambi Srinivasachary, a young brahmachari of 20 years and initiated him in the ascetic order. It was ordained by the Lord to establish Sri Ahobila Math, an institution to propagate Srivaishnavism to take the Utsava moorti, ‘Sri Malola Narasimha’ and travel far and wide to bless the devotees all over the country and to be the cusodian ofAhobilam temples. The Founder Jeer was conferred the title Sri Satakopa Yateendra Mahadesikan (Adivan Satakopa Jeeyar). The successors to him have been carrying out the Divine command with full involvement.
Ahobilam Brahmothsavam  2016
The present H H 46th Jeeyar Srivan Satakopa Sri Ranganatha Yateendra Mahadesikan is zealously pursing the mission to make Ahobilam a popular pilgrim centre. Several projects have been initiated to make the place a well developed town with all civic amenities. Guest Houses, well laid road up-the-hill, water supply etc. are the aspects personally being overseen by H H Jeeyar. The renovation of all temples in Upper & Lower Ahobilam is being taken up and Samprokshanam is slated for 2017. The Government of Andhra Pradesh is lending full support in this endeavor.
