20 Mar, Kadri Narasimha Swamy Simha Vahanam 2016

Processional deity of Lord Narasimha Swamy is taken out in a grand procession atop Simha Vahanam around temple town on the third day of the ongoing annual Brahmotsavam in Sri Kadri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple at Kadiri, Anantapur on Sunday evening.Hundreds of devotees had congregated all along the temple streets of the temple town.

The  incarnation of Lord Vishnu as the Mrugendrudu (most  ferocious and strong among the animals-Lion) is an indication of Lord Narasimha Swamy as a powerful entity born to punish the erring anti-social elements on the universe and devoted for protection of the righteous, poor and the weaker sections in the society. Being a Simha, is the fourth avatar of Lord Vishnu in his incarnation as ‘Narasimha’ whom the puranas and legends speak involumes for his drive against ‘Dushta’(wrong  doors) and protection of the weak, poor and the god fearing  persons.


In the Yoga shastra – a Lion was seen as an embodiment of power and speed. The valor of Lord Narasimha who had made such an animal as his vehicle is thus displayed in abundance.
